This impressive Jaguar is a fully race prepared Mark 2 that has been successfully campaigned over the last six years, initially by Chris Scragg, with support by M&C Wilkinson, and latterly by the Woodham Mortimer racing team.
Manufactured in 1965, this Jaguar is an original right-hand drive example that left the factory fitted with a 3.4-litre engine. The car led an unremarkable life for its first 20-or-so years until it was acquired by Michael Wilkinson, proprietor of the famous M&C Wilkinson race preparation and support business. Michael kept the car for a further 20 years until he sold it to racing driver Chris Scragg, who had M&C Wilkinson rebuild it at enormous cost into a fabulous historic racer, complete with an up-rated 3.8-litre engine. Scragg entered the car in the Masters Historic racing series and the pair proved a potent combination, ending up class or outright winners in almost every event they entered. The car competed at most of the major UK circuits throughout 2011 and took outright victory in the Top Hat Master Series at Snetterton in October 2011.
Following Scragg's successes in 2011, the Jaguar was put up for sale and purchased by Woodham Mortimer, who undertook a thorough overhaul in anticipation of further competitive appearances. This work involved a full mechanical strip down including no-expense-spared rebuilds of the engine, gearbox, suspension, and rear axle. A new dashboard was designed and fitted together with a replacement wiring loom, programmable ignition system, additional spot lights (for night endurance racing), Öhlins shock absorbers, overhauled 2" SU HD8 carburettors, and oil coolers for the gearbox and rear axle. In this highly developed form the car ran with success at the Nürburgring in 2012 and 2013 as well as competing in the prestigious Spa 6-Hour Race in 2015. Most recently the Jaguar has successfully competed at the 2017 Bernina Gran Turismo Hill Climb in Switzerland, while in 2018 the engine was rebuilt for endurance racing.
Offered in fully race-prepared condition and eligible for many of the world's major historic events, this potent Mark 2 represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a proven Jaguar racing saloon.
