M & C Wilkinson were approached in June by one of our clients to prepare their MK1 3.4L Jaguar for a 4,500 mile rally on Route 89 through the USA & Canada. With only three weeks to prepare the car with work that included power steering, 5 speed gearbox conversion, uprated radiator, modern alternator, electronic ignition and uprated brakes the team set about carrying out all of the clients requirements in the short timescale given.

The Spa Six Hour meeting is seen as the pinnacle of historic motorsport; M & C Wilkinson had three E-Types competing with one in Pre 63 GT, one in Masters Gentleman Drivers and finally one competing in the infamous Six Hours!
M & C Wilkinson had high aspirations for Chris’s E-Type XAN 555 in the Six Hours against an incredible field of the world’s best Pre 66 GT cars; Matt Nicoll-Jones set an outright lap record for an E-Type/Pre 66 GT car in qualifying! Thus putting us sixth overall in the middle of ten GT40’s on the starting grid, some 2.5 seconds quicker than the closest GT car and 4.8 seconds quicker than the nearest E-Type!!

This year’s Oulton Park “Gold Cup” Guards Trophy race was the penultimate race of the Guards Trophy Championship with Chris & “XAN 555” a class win away from outright championship victory. All that now stood in his way was current champion Nick Fleming & his awesome Lotus Elan.
