I read with interest your remarks in the July Motor Sport about the team of Jaguar cars beiog driven back to Coventry after the race at Nurburgring. I feel that rather than belittle this very fine effort, which is of great advertising value, you ought to praise them. Jaguars can well afford to buy a transporter for their cars, but why, when the cars can be driven to and from the race ?
I hope you will congratulate the Jaguar team on their very convincing win at Reims on July 1st.
May I say that I very much enjoy reading your magazine, and it is the only link that I have with motor racing while I am at school. I also find your advertisement columns invaluable.
I am, Yours, etc,
D Fielder. Wimborne.
[Our contributor’s remark “Someone should buy Jaguar a transporter” was based on the valuable time lost between races in driving home damaged cars—normally; it is nice to see sports cars driven to and from a circuit.–Ed]
