Jaguar cars ready to race at 2012 Goodwood Revival

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 C-type and D-type cars.

Jaguar’s entries at Goodwood mark the final race in an incredibly 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 hotly-contested 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.

Adrian Hallmark, global brand director, Jaguar said: “Goodwood Revival is unique and a world class event for collectors, drivers and enthusiasts of classic cars and heritage motor sport.

“It showcases some of the finest and most successful race cars ever built and I am proud that we are able to bring the rich heritage of Jaguar to life; both on track and as part of our bespoke displays.

“It is an excellent opportunity to celebrate Jaguar’s history, and a showcase for our enduring and distinctive brand values of seductive design, innovative technology and sporting performance.”
