Those of you who are regulars to Jaguar Magazine may well be familiar with John Bleasdale in England. He is dedicated to Jaguar’s Supercar models and the XJ-SC – or Cabriolet.
If you are interested in those models and don’t know John, you will find him on Facebook and other social media platforms.
So for John, here is an older image of a model he may or may not have on his Register, plus a shot of Richard Hassan (ex-Jaguar Student Apprentice and son of the legendary Walter Hassan) with the factory ‘Pace Car’ when we all went to Le Mans in I think 1989.
Jaguar loaned him that historic car, but since then I believe the Trust has sold it.
The final shots also show an XJ-S, the second XJ-S racer built by Mark Trenoweth, but which he sold to Mike Roddy. Yes, that is Mike and a very young Jordan with the car they used as a template for their brilliant black and silver V12 racer.
You may never have seen this one, but it has to be one of the most beautiful XJ-Ss ever seen.
