Jaguar, Wil­liams and Fiat head­line an­other year of on-track an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Track pa­rades rocked Sil­ver­stone’s Grand Prix Cir­cuit, as 19 dif­fer­ent an­niver­saries were cel­e­brated dur­ing the week­end.

The record-break­ing run of 42 Jaguar XJ220s (the largest gath­er­ing of the car ever) stole the show – with the su­per-rare su­per­cars tak­ing to the track in hon­our of their 25th an­niver­sary. Cu­rated by renowned XJ220 spe­cial­ist Don Law Rac­ing, the un­prece­dented dis­play fea­tured cars from all over the world, and Don’s very own XJ220.

Lead­ing the pack was a XJ220C driven to class vic­tory at Le Mans by David Brab­ham, David Coulthard and John Nielsen in 1993. David Brab­ham took the wheel of the car once again. Bring­ing up the rear was Don Law’s now leg­endary XJ220based Ford Tran­sit.

Else­where, other big pa­rades in­cluded the 60th an­niver­sary of the Fiat 500 (pic­tured right), 70 years of the TVR mar­que and 50 years of the TR5 and 60 years of TR3A with the TR Reg­is­ter.

A to­tal of 42 Jaguar XJ220s on track made it the largest ever gath­er­ing of the car.
