About E-type 60

What is a hillclimb?

Hillclimbing is a branch of motorsport in which drivers compete against the clock to complete an uphill course on tarmac. It is one of the oldest forms of motorsport, since the first known hillclimb at La Turbie near Nice, France took place as long ago as 31 January 1897. The hillclimb held at Shelsley Walsh is the world’s oldest continuously staged motorsport event still staged on its original course, having been first run in 1905.

What is an E-type?

The Jaguar E-type is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1974. Its combination of beauty, high performance and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-type's claimed 150 mph (241 km/h) top speed, sub-7-second 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration, unitary construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension were facets of the car and spurred industry-wide changes. The E-type was based on Jaguar's D-type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years beginning 1955, and employed what was, for the early 1960s, a novel racing design principle, with a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolted directly to the body tub.
