Ron Gaudion is a 91 year old legend we know very well at Jaguar Magazine.
He was one of two crew members on the winning D-Type Jaguars at Le Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957.
He worked for both Jaguar and Ecurie Ecosse in their most important engineering challenges and is the only person who was part of each of Jaguar’s D-Type Le Mans victories.
We had lunch with Ron just a few days ago and loved chatting with him about his Jaguar life, his friendship with Ron Flockhart and others – and how things really happened then.
With us were Jaguar devotees Peter Tett and his lovely wife Tricia – Peter’s father having won the important 1937 Blackpool Rally.
Ron has owned his X-Type for 17 years, and is heavily involved with the JDC on the Queensland Gold Coast. He is Patron of the Jaguar Drivers Club of Queensland.
What a privilege it was to spend time with a man who made such significant Jaguar history.
