Now that Jaguar’s car making business is on track and they’ve also successfully launched the F-Type, there is time for the British company to rediscover its long lost motorsport ambitions. And they are kicking it off by announcing a strong lineup for this year’s Mille Miglia race.
With a team of drivers for its Jaguar Heritage Racing, Jaguar will turn up at the Italian event with a line-up of three C-Type race cars and three XK120s, followed on the majority of the driving route by five new Jaguar F-Type sports cars.
Jaguar has also put together an interesting driver lineup, a blend of racing drivers, celebrities, models, athletes and engineers. It includes six-time Olympic cycling Champion Sir Chris Hoy, global supermodel David Gandy, Le Mans 24 Hours race winner Andy Wallace, Chairman & CEO of 20th Century Fox Jim Gianopulos, German actress Hannah Herzsprung, Italian Salvatore Ferragamo Jr., fashion icon Yasmin Le Bon and Michael Quinn, the grandson of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons.
