A glorious Spring Goodwood Track Day, organised by our old friends CKL Developments, saw an opportunity at this wonderful venue to put the WinSpeed Jaguar 3.8 Mk2 of Simon and Alex Drabble through its paces.
Built to FIA Appendix K spec – with its bespoke WinSpeed (WSM) 3.8 Litre XK engine – this car has a busy 2015 season ahead after a few `suck-it-and-see` outings in 2014.
After a Winter of subtle fettling to the car it was great to see the smile on Simon`s face and get his positive feedback. Forever the analyst, Simon was providing us with his pragmatic observations……such as “How far CAN I take it on the Tacho….?” and “What`s the cost if I take it too far?”
Son Alex, on the other hand (who had never driven it before) returned reports of “awesome”, “I never thought it would be this fun”…and “I LOVE IT!” was enough for for us to be equally pleased with the day`s outing.
(Moral: “Watch the dials, Son………!”)
Follow the 2015 progress of this lovely Jaguar Mk2 3.8 run by WinSpeed for Father & Son Team of Simon & Alex Drabble…..hopefully we`ll all have fun !!!
