Famed hillclimb Shelsley Walsh in Worcestershire will reverberate to Jaguar’s legendary six-cylinder XK snarl as hundreds of E-types assemble on the weekend of June 12/13 to celebrate 60 years of a motoring legend and the groovy era it symbolised. There’s a very special link with Motor Sport magazine too.
Revealed to a gaping public in June 1961, the E-type instantly outperformed, underpriced and out-styled everything else in the market, becoming the cool car everyone wanted. And six decades on, they still do. Combining 1960s fashion, music and dancing the weekend harks back to Swinging London, but it’s the cars which star.
Motor Sport readers can win two free tickets to this event and a ride up the hill in the Italian Job E-type. For more details about how to enter, visit: motorsportmagazine.com/etype60
