Harper en­ters his 53rd race sea­son

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

John Harper, one of Bri­tain’s most ex­pe­ri­enced his­toric rac­ing driv­ers, will race reg­u­larly again in 2016, his 53rd sea­son of rac­ing.

Harper has just fin­ished build­ing a Jaguar E-type and will con­test this year’s Jaguar Her­itage Chal­lenge.

“In 2015 I only did one race and the year be­fore I only did three races,” said Harper who lived in France for eight years un­til 2012. “I’ll be 77 when the sea­son starts and so I’m not go­ing to bother with sin­gle-seaters any­more.”

Harper has been rac­ing since 1963 and has raced just about ev­ery type of his­toric car over the last six decades. He is now based in Broad­way in Worces­ter­shire.
