JAGUAR C-type l GREAT CARS 9
€76,50  
This glorious book tells the story of the celebrated lightweight Jaguar C-type, chassis number XKC 051, that Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt drove to victory in the 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours. The car went on to have a busy post-works racing career, first with Ecurie Ecosse, then with privateer drivers Bill Smith and Geoffrey Allison. Among its small number of collector custodians in later years, the names of Briggs Cunningham and Adrian Hamilton (son of Duncan) stand out. All this is covered in fascinating detail, supported by a fine collection of period photographs. Any Jaguar enthusiast will enjoy this addition to the ‘Great Cars’ series.

• Development of the C-type, focusing on the three lightweights of 1953 with thinner-gauge aluminium bodies, pioneering disc brakes and aircraft-style fuel tanks.
• The story of the 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours told in full, with extensive illustration and behind-the-scenes insights drawn from period interviews with many participants.
• Action with Ecurie Ecosse in 1954 and early 1955, taking in 13 race meetings with drivers such as Ninian Sanderson, Peter Walker, James Scott-Douglas and Desmond Titterington.
• The privateer racing period: Bill Smith in 1955, the car repainted red, until his death while racing another of his cars; Geoffrey Allison in 1956, the car repainted white.
• Later life, first in America, where notable racer and collector Briggs Cunningham was the owner for 18 years, followed by a return to the UK in the hands of Adrian Hamilton (Duncan’s son) for over 20 years.
• Nearly 300 period images, many previously unpublished, supported by a portfolio of studio photography.

OndertitelThe Autobiography of XKC 051
Auteur(s)Chas Parker & Philip Porter
Over de auteur(s)Chas Parker
Chas Parker swapped a career in astronomy, where he was Press Officer for the Royal Greenwich Observatory, for one writing about motor sport. Along the way he edited a computer magazine for Hewlett-Packard business users and provided copywriting services to companies such as Air Miles, Elf Oil and South East Water. He also contributed to Patrick Moore’s ‘Yearbook of Astronomy’ and the ‘Philip’s Astronomy Encyclopedia’.

For a time he was motoring correspondent for ‘Sussex Life’ magazine and then worked for seven years as a sub-editor on ‘Motorsport News’, for which he still contributes race reports, particularly on the Goodwood Revival and Members’ Meetings, along with occasional articles for publications such as ‘Autosport’ and ‘Motor Sport’. He is the author of five books, including comprehensive histories of Brands Hatch and Silverstone, both published by Haynes.

He lives in East Sussex with his partner Diane and has two sons, Jon and Will.

Philip Porter
Philip Porter is the author of around 30 motoring books. In an action-packed life, he started competing in hillclimbs and sprints while still at school, winning 10 of his 12 events in 1970 in his full-race Sprite. Bitten by the classic car bug, he bought five Jaguar XKs in 1973 (four of which he still has) and his historic E-types (9600 HP, the oldest E-type which was the development, launch, press car, and 848 CRY, the '61 racer and roadster in the film The Italian Job) in 1976.

He began writing articles and books in the mid-'80s. In parallel he began flying hot air balloons and airships competitively (European Airship Championships Silver Medallist), and was the first person ever to fly an airship in Africa. He has twice been Chairman of the Sherlock Holmes Society and in 1997 he and his wife Julie formed the International Jaguar XK Club, the Jaguar E-type Club following in 2004.
