Fabulous Jaguar E-Type
Jaguar E-Types will also have a strong presence at this year’s Goodwood Revival. Saturday’s feature race at the Revival - the Fordwater Trophy - will be a 45-minute two-driver race for E-Types only. In honour of this, the official 2011 Goodwood Revival poster depicts the famous ‘4 WPD’ Noddy Coombs lightweight development E-Type racing at Goodwood.
Jaguar has a long and impressive history at Goodwood. An SS100 won the very first post-War public motor race at the West Sussex circuit in September 1948, and the marque went on to enjoy great success with sports, GT and saloon cars during Goodwood’s active years from 1948 to 1966. It is testament to this special relationship that the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival are the only UK-based motor sport events officially recognised and supported by Jaguar Cars.
Commenting on this announcement, Lord March says: “I am delighted that we are able to honour Jaguar’s sporting heritage and the 50th anniversary of the E-Type in particular, at Goodwood this year. Goodwood and Jaguar have always enjoyed a very close relationship, and it is entirely fitting that they should choose to celebrate these two very special anniversaries with us.”
