CJ LSR E Type
Rules and general information
Team CJ is proud to announce our attempt at the outright land speed record for an XK engined E Type Jaguar. We have so far been unable to find any irrefutable evidence that any 6 cylinder E Type has ever achieved 180 mph. Our target speed is 200 mph.
In this section, over the coming months, we will chronicle the building of the LSR car, sharing with you some (if not quite all) of its advanced specifications.
Our own Carey Chadd will be in charge of the project, with Bobby Whitehead as his deputy. They will be assisted on a consultancy basis by Terry Handley of Jagpro in Australia and Rob Beere of Rob Beere Racing Services in the United Kingdom.
The vehicle will be driven by Dan Mooney - who will also write out most of the cheques!
We hope you enjoy following our progress.
