Monday brought my first test in Julian Thomas' fantastic Semi Lightweight E -Type Jaguar. We will be sharing it in selected races around Britain and Europe this season with visits to the Donington Historic Festival, Silverstone Classic, Zandvoort Historic Festival, the Spa 6 Hours race and Portimao.

My first run was a real eye opener. I have driven E Types before but this was in a different league. The powerful engine hurtled it down the Donington straights and the handling was well ahead of expectation with Craner Curves nearly flat out!!   First outing is at the Donington Historic Festival at the end of the month. Cant wait!
