Three of Jaguar’s legendary Group C cars, including the 1987 Championship-winning XJR-8, will be demonstrated during the XK70 Festival on 9-10 June 2018. The event, which celebrates 70 years since the introduction of the ground-breaking XK120, will take place at Shelsley Walsh in Worcestershire – and the trio of sports-prototypes will join a packed programme of entertainment.

Organisers are aiming to attract a record-breaking 700 XKs from around the world to the historic venue, including those rare examples that were re-bodied in period by some of the world’s finest coachbuilders, such as Ghia and Bertone. Also welcome are all other XK-engined Jaguars, including the Mk1 and Mk2, E-type and XJ6, plus more recent models such as the XK8 and F-type.

Personalties attending include former Wheeler Dealers presenter Edd China, who will be filming at the event, and Sir John Egan, former Jaguar Chairman and author of the best-selling book ‘Saving Jaguar’.

Entries are now open for the competitive hillclimb, which will take place on the Saturday, while Sunday will be packed with memorable parades and demonstration runs – including the chance for enthusiasts to drive their own car up the hill. Le Mans winner Richard Attwood will be there, as will former Jaguar racers Peter Sutcliffe and Peter Sargent, plus the evergreen Norman Dewis.

Overhead, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will stage a fly-past, while a vintage fairground, shopping village and live music are sure to keep all members of the family entertained.
