Wednesday; passion;

Mike Hawthorn Lemans winner 1955,  driving a preview lap on the Lemans track in a Jaguar.

Watch this video, unique from 1956

A very interesting film clip from Chris, to think that I owned XKD 540 all those years ago during my involvement with Jaguar !

Amazing to see all the people and traffic on the road with Mike traveling at up to 180 Mph (300 km/h)

And to think that Mike lost his life in a  accident in a Jaguar 3.4, maybe no seat belt, who knows ?
Travel Safely,
Cheers BillC

Bill C. his E-type 1960

Loved the microphone set  – not much micro about it.

How would you like to be coming around a corner in whatever , car ,motor cycle or bike or coming out of your drive on your tractor & there is a D Type at speed?


  1. Great footage! I was surprised to see the cars and people on the road with the speed he was traveling at. Love the car!

  2. Carla, yes it is amazing, a different time, thank you for your visit.

  3. These lenders will scrutinize your credit report and tell you
    which items you must get up to speed. Sometimes attorneys will hand off some of the
    grunt work to a junior associate or paralegal.

    "When the attorneys finish reading the book and offering their suggestions and comments, I can include those in the final edition for publication," Zeigler said, adding: "All the attorneys' comments will be considered, but the responsibility accompanying the book is mine alone.
