I’m On Top Of The World, Ma…………….


The Retromobile was the usual classy affair, one of the best bits is meeting up with old friends. On Hall & Hall’s stand I found 288, the Jaguar XJR9/XJR12 that completed the unique double of winning both Daytona and Le Mans 24 Hours. More on the latter achievement soon. Hunting through the shots on file, I ran into the above with yours truly perched above the pit. If I recall correctly a tipsy tart in the Jaguar Dealers’ Hospitality Box tried to shove me off the ledge, I was in her shot, I didn’t get any respect back then either. And look at my crucial skateboarder’s knee pads, cutting edge or what?

Happy Days.
