Jaguar Cars aims to provide a highlight to spectators at this weekend’s Goodwood Revival, with Jaguar Heritage Racing entering race-ready versions of the legendary C-type and D-type cars.
Jaguar’s entries at Goodwood mark the final race in a successful first season in historic motorsport for Jaguar Heritage Racing. At the Revival meet, the team aims to build on victories already recorded in 2012 at Monaco Historique, Le Mans Classic and the Nürburgring AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix.
The race-ready C-type and D-type will line up in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy and Sussex Trophy respectively. In addition, Jaguar Cars’ partner in Jaguar Heritage Racing, JD Classics, will enter a race prepared Jaguar Mk. 7 saloon. The vast Mk. 7 will be driven in the St Mary’s Trophy race by JD Classics’ owner Derek Hood, and Le Mans 24hrs racer Andy Wallace.
Jaguar Cars also has a static display for public viewing at the period recreation of the Earls Court Motor Show, where it will present a C-type and XK 120. Accompanying these on the Richmond Lawn will be a C-type, D-type and XK 140.
