The E-type Challenge, created in 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Jaguar classic, will, against initial expectations, continue in 2012 when the HSCC hosts E-type races at a series of high-profile historic events.
Initially conceived as a one-off programme, driver demand for another series prompted the HSCC to arrange a second season.
“We spoke to competitors and there was widespread support for the concept,” said Grahame White of the HSCC. “We plan to run it on similar lines. There’s a pool of about 70 cars ready to race.”
