THE MAGIC of the LE MANS CLASSIC by Tony Brown

The picture tells the tale - hot racing by hot cars in, it has to be said, an even hotter temperature. Hard on the heels on the Le Mans 24 Hours comes, in even numbered years, the Le Mans Classic, and what a spectacle it has become. This event, bravely started by Patrick Peter in 2002, attracted 30,000 spectators then, leaving quite a hole in the finances it is rumoured.

Introduction

Hello Jaguar friends,

I was born in 1971. When I was 6 or 7 years old I got a silver colour E-Type model to my birthday, I fell in love with this car for the first sight.

I don't know if I am talking to Urs Schmid himself now but I'll ask you my question anyway.

In the book Jaguar XK120 by Urs Schmid on page 127 picture nr. 1 and the ordernumber is BD.2012.
