You may not recognise it or the people with it, but this is RHD XJ-S chassis #2 which was brought to Australia by the late Bob How in the latter half of the 1970s along with chassis #1.
It was built into a GT racer by John McCormack, then sold to Mark Trenoweth in Brisbane who continued to race it was great success.
In 1986 Mark was announced as the winner of Jaguar’s International Driver of the Year alongside the like of Bob Tullius.
Here he is being presented with his trophy by Jaguar’s PR Director in Australia, and later the USA (also Bentley in the US) John Crawford, along with Jaguar’s UK PR Director, the late David Boole.
Mark still owns this very famous car – but which remains largely under appreciated.
