Jaguar Heritage Racing scores debut win in Monaco Historic  Jaguar Heritage Racing, the new 'works' supported racing programme of Jaguar Cars, scored its debut win with a C-type in the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Serie C for Pre-1953 Sports Prototypes. The prestigious FIA sanctioned race was won by Alex Buncombe, in Jaguar Heritage Racing's 1952 C-type.

The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is widely regarded as the jewel in the crown of historic racing. This is the 8th running of the FIA sanctioned event, which occurs two weeks ahead of the F1 Grand Prix on the exact same circuit around the streets of the principality.

The race winning C-type has an interesting history - its first owner was none other than Juan Manuel Fangio, who bought the car from the Jaguar factory in the 1950's.

Alex Buncombe commented from the podium in front of the Royal Box, 'It's a real honour to score Jaguar Heritage Racing's maiden victory and what a place to do it, here at the most famous race track of them all, on the streets of Monte Carlo. The team and mechanics did a fantastic job preparing the car, its super quick and it ran like a dream throughout the weekend. In my view it's the best C-Type in the world'

Jaguar Heritage Racing scores debut win in Monaco Historic  Frank Klaas, Global Head of Communications Jaguar said 'Wow! To win the first race we entered with our new Heritage Racing programme is a superb achievement, but to do that in Monte Carlo in the prestigious Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is a dream come true. It's a superb showcase for the Jaguar brand across the world. My congratulations go to Alex, Derek Hood and the whole team at JD Classics for this great victory! Well done guys.'

Derek Hood, Managing Director, JD Classics added, 'This was the perfect start to our new partnership with Jaguar. The whole team at JD Classics are so proud to represent Jaguar and be part of this historic debut win.'

The next event for Jaguar Heritage Racing is the legendary Mille Miglia in Italy next weekend.

Jaguar Heritage Racing

Jaguar Heritage Racing was launched at the Royal Automobile Club in London in March 2012. The programme sees works supported Jaguar C and D-types racing at venues such as Goodwood and the Nürburgring for the first time since 1956. The season-long programme will also see Jaguar Heritage Racing support numerous additional events on the historic motoring calendar. These include the Mille Miglia, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and each round of the E-type challenge in the UK - a series which in 2011 demonstrated the depth of global interest in historic motorsport, and in Jaguar's participation specifically.

 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique
The annual Monaco Grand Prix Formula One event, held on the Circuit de Monaco, began in 1929 and has become one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world. The narrow streets of Monaco serve as the temporary 2.075 mile track, featuring tight corners, elevation changes, and even a tunnel. Today, drivers still navigate the uphill climb to Casino Square, before turning down to Mirabeau and the Loews Hairpin, before entering the famous tunnel that runs into the harbor-side chicane, a notorious spot for accidents. From there, drivers sprint past many of the harbor's large yachts toward L....
