Jaguar sent through an excellent selection of shots from the Goodwood Revival this weekend. They ran cars in several of the racing fields, having a very successful weekend overall! Jaguar’s historic car section is known as Jaguar Heritage. The collection is over 140 cars strong and represents the entire history of the brand.
For those that haven’t seen the Goodwood Revival before, it’s an annual three-day festival celebrating motor racing from the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit’s heyday between 1948 and 1966. Between these dates the circuit used to host Formula 1, the Goodwood Nine Hours race and the celebrated Tourist Trophy sports car race. The circuit is restored but remains unchanged.
Jaguar supported a number of cars over the weekend. The three that you see in the gallery are the Jaguar Mk.7, the Jaguar D-type and the Jaguar C-type. The Jaguar C-type, wearing a number 12 livery, actually won the Freddie March Memorial Trophy, a ninety minute two-driver event. Alex Buncombe and John Young piloted it to the top spot ahead of a Cooper-Bristol Mk.2 and an Austin Healy 100S.
JD Classics supported the entire operation and had a nice run in the St Mary’s Trophy with the Jaguar Mk.7 piloted by company owner Derek Hood and LeMans winner Andy Wallace. The event was eventually won by a Jaguar Mk1 piloted by Derek Bell and Grant Williams. The Jaguar D-type sadly lost drive in the Sussex Trophy race and was forced to retire.
A fantastic weekend with an equally fantastic line up! You can see all our Goodwood Revival articles here.
