But it is fun to catch up with what our favourite cars get up to when they’re not at Goodwood. So you find us now, on board a 3.8-litre Jaguar E-Type, at Circuit de Dijon for Peter Auto’s Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or 2023.
It’s only a two-minute clip (Dijon isn't a long circuit) but we get the perfect view of Sebastien Berchon giving the E-Type a proper thrash around Dijon. Playing with the throttle and the steering to balance the chassis mid-corner, we see the car get a little squirmy, before filling the cabin with one-tyre fire smoke.
The big Jag is surrounded by dainty little Lotus Elans, as well as other E-Types and of course, tanky Cobras, examples of all Berchon makes short work of before the two-minute clip is up. A good way to ring in the weekend, on a bow wave of XK straight-six music.
