Jaguar Classic Parts Saloon & GT Championship


Mix of 6 8 and 12 cylinders in XJ XJS and Coupe, they raced hard thundering around


The old mk2 Jag 3 wheeling around outside was the hero move of the day, at several points around the track was on 2 wheels giving it everything against the more modern Jags


With the steep downhill bend the white jag car almost lost it went sideways down the hill just just saved it, whilst happening next car coming around the corner had no chance went flying T boned through the drivers side window, later i heard both were ok.
