British Championship incorporating Jaguar Anniversary Celebrations

4th June 2011 to Sunday 5th June 2011

With the help of Shelsley Walsh main sponsors Stratstone, the Jaguar Daimler
Heritage Trust, BMIHT Gaydon, the Jaguar Drivers Club, the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, the 'E' Type and XK 120 Clubs and local Jaguar expert and  author Phillip Porter we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the 'E' Type, the 60th Anniversary of the 'C' Type, Other Jaguar clubs involved are expected to be XJS Club. and the XK8/XKR Enthusiasts Club.

We expect to run competitive classes of the 'E' and 'C' Types, and demonstration runs of historic Jaguars. We hope to have a number of Jaguar racing celebrities at the event. So far invited are Michael MacDowel, ex Jaguar works driver & former hill climb champ, and Max Trimble, ex 'C' Type racer who will be part of the commentary team. Max lost a leg when he crashed a 'C' Type in the 1950's. Spa 1957 i think it was, but he is still going strong on his tin leg.
