Given the weeks of sunshine it looked set to be another glorious weekend at the Silverstone Classic until a monsoon cut short Saturday’s evening festivities. We were support Joao Mira-Gomes and his beautiful Jaguar XK-140. Joao and his wife drive this car from Belgium to the UK on a regular basis to compete in various events. Unfortunately Mira-Gomes had to retire after 40 minutes from the Woodcote Trophy race due to a loss in oil pressure. Photos courtesy of Chris McEvoy.
