Additional quotes from Classic & Sportscar, July 1989, article by Philip Porter:
"Towards the end of '62 Lambert rolled the 'racer' at a sprint at Wellesbourne. The car was not badly damaged but for the '63 season it was totally rebuilt with a wide-angle head, Weber carbs, triple plate clutch and an aluminium bonnet. It was now very much a racer, and no longer driven to meetings on the road.
"By the end of '64 the car was no longer competitive and Jack, at age 50, felt it was perhaps time to hang up his helmet. One day a mechanic collected the racer to drive it to the local Jaguar dealer. He had the misfortune to lose the 'E' in a big way, hitting a tree or telegraph pole with fatal results. The car was sold as a wreck."
Photo caption: "Jack at Silverstone during the car's last racing season, 1964. When he sold it, a mechanic who came to collect it wrote it off and it was scrapped."
