60 years of the Jaguar D‑Type celebrated

Jaguar D-Types from all around the world have been invited to take part in the Lavant Cup at this year’s Revival meeting; a race exclusively for the legendary racer.

The famous three-time Le Mans winning machine has always had a strong presence at the September meeting, having won the Sussex Trophy in 2006 and 2013, but this year’s event will see as many as 30 examples take part as Goodwood celebrates the car’s 60th anniversary; a record gathering of D-Types on a racing grid.

1954 saw the debut of the sleek high-speed sports racing car which won Le Mans in 1955, ’56, and ’57 and cemented its place in racing folklore, although the race will feature not only the ‘long’ and ‘short’ nosed versions, but also some examples of the XK-SS (the road going version) and even the E2A prototype which was a link between the D-Type and the E-Type and spent much of its life in the States.

This year’s Revival will run from the 12th to the 14th September, with the Lavant Cup taking place on Saturday 13th. For ticket details click HERE.
