Alan Hannah is a keen Jaguar owner and racer in Brisbane. On hearing about his passion another a friend showed him a trophy he had brought out from England – having bought it at a charity fete.
Thoughtfully, he gave the trophy to Alan, and Alan’s research showed that while it was won at Goodwood by famous Lightweight E-Type period race Peter Lumsden – it was the last race and trophy won by his Lightweight!
The famous car in question is specially streamlined 49 FXN, and today it is owned and raced by Adam Linderman. It is the first Low Drag E-Type built, and with Alan Hannah attending the Revival in 2017 he contacted Adam to tell him about the trophy he owned. It reads: ‘Goodwood, 3rd April 1965, First Place, PJS Lumsen, Jaguar E, 93.5 mph’.
Well, the good news is that the pair met at the Revival – and the trophy was handed over to owner Adam Linderman. It has now been reunited with the car for the first time in 52 years!
