An epic journey around the British coast took in the sights and sounds of the gem of the North Norfolk coast, Cromer, as it nears the finishing line.
The Jaguar XK Club 2017 drive left the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu on June 12, flagged off by Murray Walker.
It will travel a staggering 3600 miles in 18 days around the coast raising awareness and money for Prostate cancer.
Four drivers are doing all 18 stages of the drive, including author Philip Porter, who had the original idea after recovering from prostate cancer. He wanted to do more to raise awareness of the illness and combined it with his passion for Jaguars and driving.
Cromer's deputy mayor David Pritchard flagged off the event from Northrepps Country Cottage Hotel, as it left the Cromer area on Tuesday, June 27 on its way to Hastings, before it finally finishes up at Beaulieu on June 29.
