MANY HAPPY RETURNS!
Jaguar, Williams and Fiat headline another year of on-track anniversary celebrations
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.
