One of, if not the most iconic British classic, the Jaguar E-Type Series 1. Called "the most beautiful car ever made" after it's reveal in 1961 by no less than Enzo Ferrari (he'd know a thing or two about beautiful cars). The E-Type made an immediate and lasting impact on the automotive world, and not just because of its elegant looks, the Series 1 came packed with features like independent front and rear suspension, full disc brakes and a lightweight body from Jaguar's racing D-Type. But perhaps the most astounding thing about the E-Type is the speed, capable of 150mph and 0-60 in just 6.4 seconds—ridiculously fast even by today's standards—thanks to the 4.2-litre, 265bhp engine. Sounds amazing, right? Find out for yourself.
After a briefing covering everything from racing lines, throttle and braking techniques, as well as all-important safety etiquette, you'll head out on track for a number of sighting laps in a performance sports saloon. Once you are familiar with the circuit layout you'll jump into the E-Type and enjoy 10 enthralling laps, with one to one tuition, that'll get your heart pumping and show you just what this powerful British classic can do.
Please allow up to 90 minutes at the venue.
Extra laps and passenger laps can be purchased on the day. Optional collision damage waiver (CDW) can be purchased on the day for £25. Without CDW drivers will be liable to pay the insurance excess on any vehicle they damage.
