Donington Historic Festival with XK140 and Cheetah

We had a great weekend at Donington for this years Historic Festival. This year we had the Jaguar XK140 of Joao Mira-Gomez and the Bill Thomas Cheetah of Ian Burford. Both cars were out for their first races of 2019 following successful test sessions. The XK140 ran great all weekend but the Cheetah’s running was sadly cut short after being picked up in a collision between the two cars in front. The XK140 will be back out out Thruxton in a couple of weeks. The Cheetah will be back out following repairs.

Testing Jaguar XK140 ahead of Donington Historic Festival

Following the recent return of the Mira-Gomez XK140 for the 2019 season, we’ve been busy preparing the car for Donington Historic Festival. Now that the car has some proper power from the new race engine, things are getting pushed a lot harder. One of those things being the driver! To help keep the driver in his seat we’ve changed the old leather bucket for a new Tillet B6 Screamer. We’ve had custom leather panels made up to match the existing leather interior.

Prior to Donington Historic Festival, Shaun has been out testing the car at Brands Hatch. Now that the car is going quicker we will be looking into some other other upgrades to aid handling.
