    Someone is requesting phto,s,I do have some I think with Uncle Jack and some more recent ones.I will try to enter on this site but I am in my 80,s and may require some help from my daughter to achieve this.
    Some more history about Uncle Jack ,I recall him attending big Boxing events with Mr. Lyons ,I guess this friendship enabled him to have some very interesting cars,I also remember driving the white roadster down to Salcombe,which was his holiday home, Bolt Head South sands .I wish that I had taken more interest,I could also woffle on about uncle jack and his cars.

    Story (one of many) discussing the 50th anniversary of the E-type contains the below text:
    www.carguychronicles.com/2011/01/jaguar-e-type-iconic-sports-car.html

    "Highlighting the legendary Jaguar’s central role at this year’s Silverstone Classic, one of the very first Jaguar E-Types produced will be on the grid at Silverstone. This historic car, the 11th Jaguar E-Type made (chassis number 850011) will be one of many contesting the two HSCC E-Type Challenge races at the Silverstone Classic in July."

    Reg.# is wrong (it's that of Phil Porter's 850012).
    E-Type register shows RL 26, raced by well known Jack Lambert in the early 60s (several good results in GT and sportscar categories incl. 1st place at Silverstone in Jul'61 and Mallory Park in Sep'61). Looks like Peter's uncle Jack . . .
    I try to upload a late photo of 850011 (owner: Gary Pearson), as it is shown on silverstoneclassic.com/jaguar-e-type-turns-50-at-silverstone-classic/

    Link with more history was provided by Rafe Sabre. Also speaking about 2011 the E-Type's 50th anniversary it includes the below text:
    www.easier.com/83494-jaguar-e-type-silverstone-classic.html

    The historic car on display was the 11th Jaguar E-Type car made, chassis number 850011 and will be one of the many contesting the two HSCC Jaguar E-Type Challenge races at the Silverstone Classic in July. These early pre-production cars were sold to selected customers who would race them, gaining valuable promotion. This car went to George Wicken, a successful Formula 2 driver who raced it throughout 1961 against the likes of Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Bruce McLaren and was one of only two E-Types entered for the 1961 TT at Goodwood. It now competes successfully in historic racing driven by owner Gary Pearson.

    Wicken car was initially LHD , possibly # 875011. It was registered in May 61,long before Jaguar released 850011.

    Lofty, the Wicken car cannot have been 875011. It went straight to North America, as did all other LHD open cars at the time I'm pretty sure

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
