Historic Racing News: Jaguar special part 2
1:40:56
The second part of the ‘Jaguars in Competition’ specia looks at some of the more successful times for Jaguar.  Their success in the early days of GTP and later at Le Mans, was spearheaded by Bob Tullius and his Group 44 team, who created the sublime XJR5. Jim Roller talks to the first man to drive it in anger, Bill Adam. Joe Bradley finds out from Rob Beere just how you build a 7 litre V12 E Type racer, and Paul Jurd looks at the very strange XJR15 mini series, when drivers left the start line not knowing how long the race would be. Plus lots of nuggets and comments along the way!

Jim Roller looks back at Monterey Car Week. The Pebble Beach Concours is the highlight but, as Jim explains, there is too much going on to be able to see everything. High-prestige auctions, car shows and two weekends of historic racing at Laguna Seca make this a very special event.  And talking of special events, we take an in depth look at the upcoming Goodwood Revival. Corridors of Power, our game of opinionated nonsense, takes a different turn this month with each team member choosing their weirdest cars ever to take to the grid! Join Joe Bradley, Jim Roller, Paul Jurd and Paul Tarsey for lots of chat and stories.
