The 2016 Jaguar Heritage Challenge will take place over four race weekends between April and August and drivers will have the opportunity to race on renowned circuits in the United Kingdom and Germany – plus one more special race date due to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Confirmed dates for the 2016 Jaguar Heritage Challenge include: April 30 to May 2, Donington Historic Festival; July 2-3 at Brands Hatch Super Prix; August 12-14, Nurburgring Oldtimer Grand Prix; and August 27-29 at Oulton Park.

During the 2015 season, nearly 100 drivers took to a selection of the greatest tracks in the UK along with a spectacular race at the Nurburgring Oldtimer Grand Prix to compete for overall class honors during the successful first season of the new race challenge.

A large variety of Jaguar’s Heritage models were represented over the course of 2015 including an ex-Sir Jackie Stewart E-type (SSN 300), which, driven by Mike Wilkinson and John Bussell, won overall at the last round at Oulton Park.

In addition a selection of stunning D-types, Mkl and Mkll Saloons, low-drag E-types plus XK120 and XK150s competed wheel-to-wheel.

The announcement of the new race calendar coincided with the announcement of the 2015 Jaguar Heritage Challenge award winners in recognition of a thrilling season of memorable historic racing.

Taking overall honors for a thoroughly consistent and outstanding season was Andy Wallace, driving his Heritage Mk1 Saloon. With two second-place finishes at the opening race at Donington Park and Brands Hatch, Andy then registered three Class B wins to gather the most points after the final reckoning.
