Sri Lankan racer switches to E-type

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
