Jaguar C-Type

This car replaced the car listed in the programme of the event in the Classic Car Sports Car Race at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1994.
It's Hugh Taylor's Jaguar C-Type, and the car it replaced in that race is Hugh Taylor's Willment-Climax, which is the car behind the C-Type in this photograph. There are three other C-Types shown here - car number 12 is that of Martin Morris, which was driven by David Morris in the race; number 7 is Aubrey Finburgh's car which was piloted by Paul Grist; and the only other C-Type listed in the programme is that of Burkhard von Schenk. Next to that car is a Maserati 300S, and what looks like another 300S behind the people of the right of the photograph.
Here's Hugh Taylor in the race at Luffield corner leading the Porsche RSK of Wessel von Loringhoven, and the Cooper Bristol Bobtail of Katherina Schmidt.
