Jag stolen from show

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A Jaguar E-type has been stolen in broad day­light at a ma­jor clas­sic show at­tended by more than 126,000 peo­ple.

The 1965 4.2-litre fixed-head coupé was stolen on 29 April from a pub­lic park­ing area out­side Don­ing­ton Park, Le­ices­ter­shire, dur­ing the His­toric Fes­ti­val.

Don­ing­ton Park is en­cour­ag­ing any­one who might have seen any­thing sus­pi­cious to con­tact the po­lice and says that it will up­grade its se­cu­rity sur­veil­lance for fu­ture events at the cir­cuit.

Don­ing­ton’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Christo­pher Tate, says: ‘We were con­cerned to hear the news of this theft. It’s the first time any car has been taken from one of Don­ing­ton’s car parks since the restart in 2010.

‘ The pad­dock and a wide area of the es­tate is cov­ered by CCTV cam­eras, but un­for­tu­nately this par­tic­u­lar area was not. We are plan­ning for it in the near fu­ture.

‘As clas­sic en­thu­si­asts, we are mor­ti­fied for this per­son, who is a good friend of Don­ing­ton Park, to have been sub­ject of this theft, and we are very pleased with the de­tailed ac­tions taken by Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice.’

A spokesper­son for Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice, which is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft, says: ‘ The in­ci­dent hap­pened be­tween 10.50am and 6.50pm. It is a white Jaguar E-type Se­ries 1 and has reg­is­tra­tion num­ber ELO 775C.

‘We are ap­peal­ing for any­one who saw the car be­ing moved, driven away or loaded onto any other means of trans­port.’

If you’ve seen this car call 101 with the crime ref­er­ence 17*178393.

The E-type was stolen dur­ing the Don­ing­ton His­toric Fes­ti­val.
