Thanks to Lord March once again for allowing automotive enthusiasts to descend upon the Goodwood estate for a weekend of petrolhead heaven at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Highlights this year included a central theme which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the iconic Jaguar E-type. We recorded an interview with E-type authority, Peter Crespin to mark the event. We were also very fortunate to grab a short interview with F1 legend Adrian Newey. Adrian recently provided the foreword for forthcoming Veloce book Race & Trackday Driving Techniques. The author, David Hornsey actually taught Adrian some basic principles of developing skills as a trackday driver. Adrian, more renowned for his development of F1 cars than driving, was happy to give the short interview in the Red Bull garage just after he completed his run up the famous hillclimb.

To coincide with the 50th anniversary, Veloce will be publishing Jaguar E-type – Enthusiast’s restoration Manual by Peter Crespin.
In stock November 2011!
People dream of restoring an E-type, but many fail to complete their project after time or money run out. Do you REALLY need to spend £4000 trimming a two-seater, £6000 on an engine, £2000 on a soft top, or £30,000 for a new body shell? No – you can do it yourself for far less, provided your goal is a solid, presentable, and above all driveable car. If you are time rich but cash poor, this book is for you. More info.
