Lightweight Jaguar E-type makes European debut at Goodwood Revival

Published 02 September 2014

Jaguar’s Lightweight E-type will make its European debut at this year’s Goodwood Revival on 12-14 September.

The continuation model, which is being built at Browns Lane by the new JLR Special Operations team, is just one of a host of Jaguar’s at the Revival.

To mark the 60th anniversary of the D-type, Sunday’s Lavant Cup race will be dedicated to the legendary racer with more than 20 examples lining up on the grid.

Ex-Jaguar Le Mans winner Andy Wallace will be competing in a 1955 ‘long-nose’ D-type alongside some other familiar faces, including fellow ex-Le Mans winner Derek Bell.

And on Revival Friday and Sunday, a spirited parade of D-types will take place around the Goodwood circuit, with a record number of examples of the racing Jaguar gathered in one place. 

Another 25 or so Jaguars and Jaguar-powered cars will be competing wheel-to-wheel at the circuit, with racing C-types and E-types, plus MkI and MkVII saloons out in force.

Away from the on-track racing, numerous historic Jaguar models will be present with team support cars dotted around the scenic paddocks, and examples of almost every classic Jaguar model parked-up in the huge Revival Car Show car park for pre-1966 vehicles, based just over the road opposite the main Goodwood circuit entrance.
