A ‘PEARLER’ OF AN EDITION COMING NEXT – D-TYPES RACING IN CUBA, 30 YEARS SINCE THE FIRST V12 WIN AT LE MANS AND EVOQUE VERSUS E-PACE …

We have never done a back-to-back comparison, but in edition #193 we put the new E-Pace up against the established Range Rover Evoque in a one-on-one shootout.  They are siblings, and the model specs are the same – so what do we conclude?

Remember TWR winning Le Mans for Jaguar in 1988 for the first Jaguar-time since 1957?  Well, we were there with our cameras, and now we present the behind the scenes story about how the UK and US legs of TWR blended, and all of the insights you probably don’t know.  It is history rewritten.

… and how about D-Types, and XK-SS racing in Cuba?  Did you know that occurred even after Castro’s revolutionary overthrow of the corrupt Batista government?  You will be amazed that one very rich Cuban had three D-Types in less than 12 months.  It is all there to discover.

Then there is the story of Cliff Ruddell who you probably won’t know, but who had a big hand in probably designing the Jaguars you own or admire immediately post-Sir William Lyons.

The MkX saloon has been under-rated – but it is back in this edition – while Graham Gauld has been to Classic Le Mans and found four rare Cooper Jaguar sports racing cars.

… and there is heaps and heaps more.

A FIRST – E-PACE HSE IN COMPARISON TEST WITH RANGE ROVER EVOQUE HSE …

 
We have not done it before in our 34 years of publishing, but the good folk at Jaguar Land Rover have provided us with a top of the line Range Rover Evoque HSE to live with immediately after the E-Pace.
 
At the moment we are testing the top ranking Jaguar E-Pace HSE, and that has been extended to allow us to sample both ‘sister’ or ‘brother’ models (depending upon your preference) – back-to-back!
 
We are very excited and because the Evoque and E-Pace share the same basic floorpan, engine and transmission – set up for different purposes, the project will be fascinating for us and our readers to consume.
 
We are also offering our loyal readers something new after carrying out our tests – and it will be free. More on that when it is ready to be launched!
 
Don’t miss edition #193 – and thanks to James and Evelina for pulling this unique test together!

JAGUAR – AND THE ORIGINAL ‘LANKY YANK’

Bob Blake is a man not be known to most of us – but his work is.

The extremely tall man who was self-taught was a genius panel man and worked for Briggs Cunningham plus Jaguar from the 1950s was the quietest and nicest man who made a massive impact.

His whole story will be explained in our coming edition, and I promise you will not guess just how very brilliant and significant he was.

Think the Cunningham racers, E1A, E2A, E-Type FHC, XJ13 … and on it goes.

30 YEARS AGO – JAGUAR WON LE MANS AND WE WERE THERE – THE INSIDE STORY NEXT EDITION

Difficult as it is to believe if you were fortunate enough to witness it, but it really is 30 years in June since Jaguar won Le Mans for the first time as a factory entry since 1955!  Of course, Ecurie Ecosse won in 56 and 57 in their own D-Types.

30 years ago our editor was in the pits at Le Mans with a full media and photographers pass, he went to the TWR factory to see the cars being prepared, and knew many of the hard working team members from Bathurst and Le Mans in 1987.

We can say without hesitation we have the best inside images and knowledge of that victory of any publication, and in our next edition we will tell and show you from the inside, and for the only time, how TWR and Jaguar won Le Mans in 1988 and re-established itself as a motoring icon.

There is much to tell about how it was done with the TWR effort broken up into a three car team run by the UK outfit, and a two car effort crewed and managed by its Daytona 24 Hour winning team from the US.

There was politics within the outfit which haven’t been disclosed before, and a very shaky last hour or more for the Jaguar XJR-9LM which won the race.

Not all the cars were new that season, and we will outline the background of each of those five cars.

Remember too that Jaguar was challenging the awesome might of Porsche, and also Mercedes-Benz via the Sauber outfit – so 1988 was even tougher than the previous four years when Jaguar reappeared at Le Mans managed by Group 44 then TWR in totally different types of sports racers.

The victory celebrations at the track have never been equalled, and our editor says he knows he will never witness anything as emotional again at a race event.

DO NOT MISS THIS EDITION – It is very special even if you are not a racing buff

It is about Jaguar and Jaguar’s very survival through to this day.
