Series Elite, a “mature racing” series launched by Jaguar, is kicking off in the spring for drivers in their 50s and up. The new discipline will feature a full field of Jaguar XE SV Project 8 super saloons and take place across six rounds at top level U.K. and European race tracks.
Described by the organizers as “A one-make racing series exclusively for the mature driver, appealing to amateur and experienced racers alike,” Series Elite markets it as more of a lifestyle than just a race series. And while this might sound a little bit like the SCCA with a minimum age requirement, it’s more exclusive than that.
Another requirement to get into this organization: you’ve got to be pretty loaded because the price of admission supposedly covers the cost of a Project 8 and then some. The official website advertises that 20 Series Elite Jaguars, built to their specifications, will keep the playing field level amongst the drivers. Since it’s such a limited run, 20 of the 300 made is actually a significant stake in the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 production cars.
