Sri Lankan racer switches to E-type
Us-based Harindra de Silva will make his Goodwood debut this month in the ex-william I’anson Jaguar E-type.
The Sri Lankan driver has raced single-seaters extensively in the US, including Formula Junior and Historic F1, but is new to sports and GT cars.
“This is a bit of a change of scene but I’ve always admired E-types,” said de Silva, who will commute from his home in Los Angeles to race in Europe this season.
“The E-type is a car I can race all over Europe and I’d like to do more endurance races this season.”
I’anson tended the car in a Goodwood test last week as part of the handover.
