Jaguar E Type

Once referred to as the most beautiful car ever by Enzo Ferrari, the E-type is just edging out its nearest rival, the Mini Cooper S, but with polls at www.classicandsportscarshow.com open until 1st August, there’s every chance that lead could change hands.

With cars as varied as the Austin Seven, McLaren F1, Ford GT40 and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost also making up the top ten shortlist, Classic & Sports Car is calling on enthusiasts to vote now to make sure their favourite gets the recognition it deserves.

The winner of the new worldwide poll will be revealed at Classic & Sports Car – The London Show, held at Alexandra Palace from 30th October to 1st November 2015. The magazine’s all-new historic motoring show will feature more than 300 of the world’s most prestigious classic cars from world-famous collectors and world-renowned classic car retailers.

Revealing the best British car of all time will certainly be one of the event’s biggest highlights though. Enthusiasts can pick from ten historically significant British cars, with the leaderboard currently looking like this:

1. Jaguar E-type
2. Mini Cooper S
3. Austin Seven
4. McLaren F1
5. Range Rover
6. Lotus Seven
7. Bentley Speed Six
8. Ford GT40
9. Jaguar XKSS
10. Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

 

Jaguar Heritage Challenge 2015

 The inaugural race of the Jaguar Heritage Challenge 2015 is set to begin at the Donington Historic Festival over the May bank holiday weekend. The first race of the Jaguar Heritage Challenge – run with the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) – will feature a full field of 34 Jaguars including a 1957 MK I saloon driven by 1988 Le Mans winner, Andy Wallace.

The series is open to all Jaguars manufactured before 1966 including the XK-series, C- and D-types, MK I and MK II saloons and E-type. It complements the growing portfolio of Jaguar Heritage activities, which also includes the recently launched Jaguar Heritage Driving Experiences and factory sourced Heritage Parts and restoration – all under the expert direction of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations division.

John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations said: “We are extremely excited to welcome the drivers and fans of classic Jaguars to the very first race of the Heritage Challenge.

“Jaguar already has a long established tradition in appearing at the world’s foremost classic car celebrations including the Mille Miglia and Goodwood Revival and the Heritage Challenge is another exciting way in which the brand is celebrating its rich racing legacy.”

Graham White, CEO of the HSCC, said: “There is a tremendous affinity amongst the British public for classic Jaguars and the Jaguar Heritage Challenge is a fantastic addition to our 2015 racing calendar.”

The single-marque series will feature at five of the most high-profile historic festivals both in the UK and at the Nurburgring in Germany over the summer and the competitive series will see drivers competing in five different classes.

The top three most consistent drivers over the course of the season will be presented with a Bremont watch and Globetrotter luggage.
