Hope for Tomorrow the event charity
'This will be an amazing event which I am really looking forward to. Our family garage were Jaguar distributors in Wolverhampton and I was a Jaguar apprentice so I have strong connections with the company and there is still an Attwood Trophy awarded by the MAC each year for sports cars at Shelsley. The E-type was, and is, a stunning car and it is extraordinary to think it is 60 years old. See you at Shelsley Walsh next June.' Richard Attwood
