E-Type The Iconic Celebration

It is 60 years since the iconic Jaguar E-Type was launch at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961.  To celebrate this special anniversary year, the Fast Lane Club is hosting a special event at Bowcliffe Hall with many special guests and historically significant classic Jaguar motor cars from the Golden era of the 1950’s & 60’s. 

 

William Heynes, the Grandson of Bill Heynes, Jaguar’s Chief Engineer and Technical Director is managing the most detailed, elaborate and comprehensive E-Type restoration project ever seen. In conjunction with Stephen Owens (the Chairman of the Fast Lane Club), William is restoring 9 early Series 1 “Flat Floor” E-Types to a level of detail never seen before.

 

On 14th July 2021 the first 2 E-Types to be completed will be unveiled for the first time.  You are invited to be part of this incredibly special day to see these wonderfully restored E-Types as well as some “Work in Progress” examples and hear from William Heynes & the Team first hand about the restoration project of the most iconic British Sportscar of all time.

Carbon Offsetting…

In the modern world, we cannot escape the impact CO2 is having on climate change and what is happening with global warming.

 

The Fast Lane Club feel it is important we make our Driving Tours Carbon Neutral which is why we aim aim to offset the carbon we produce on our driving tours so we leave Zero Carbon Footprint. 

 

But this isn’t about planting a few trees that won’t mature for another 30 years. We have carefully researched and selected a carbon offsetting partner that delivers projects that have immediate impact on CO2 emmissions with a secondary ethical benefit.
