About This Product: This beautifully patinated, mouth-watering example of this much-coveted and classical British endurance racing Grand Touring model was the ninth in the sequence of 1963-season ‘Lightweight’ E-Type Jaguar competition Coupes, from only 12 built. This model series was the closest the world-famous Jaguar factory ever came to building a ‘works’ team of racing E-Types, although in this case each car was sold to an ‘acceptable’ private customer of proven Jaguar pedigree, and then run by them with varying degrees of factory assistance..
This particular example was completed new in July that year for Peter Sutcliffe, of Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England. He had already built a very considerable reputation for himself as a highly competent owner/driver of Jaguar racing machinery, with his handling at club-race level of the ex-works/Ecurie Ecosse team 1955 ‘Longnose’ D-Type Jaguar ‘XKD 504’.
He made his racing debut in this latest ‘Lightweight’ E-Type at Mallory Park on Whit-Monday, 1963 finishing 5th in the Grovewood Trophy race at the tight Leicestershire circuit. The company that Peter Sutcliffe and this lovely car kept is evident from the list of those he chased home – Graham Hill in John Coombs’s winning ‘Lightweight’ E-Type ‘4 WPD’, Jack Sears’ Ferrari 250GTO, Roy Salvadori’s ‘Lightweight’ E-Type and Mike Salmon in another Ferrari 250GTO. This was Grand Touring car racing of the highest possible order, with ‘YVH 210’ offered here today at its core.
Peter Sutcliffe then drove the new car to victory in the Archie Scott Brown Memorial Trophy race at Snetterton and finished 5th in the GT Category at the major British Grand Prix meeting at Silverstone, competing in the supporting sports and Grand Touring car event. Another 4th place followed at Snetterton. An accident during practice at Brands Hatch in August then punctuated the season for ‘YVH ’.
The damage to the car was speedily repaired by the Jaguar factory and Peter Sutcliffe returned to action with it at Goodwood, finishing 2nd to none other than Jackie Stewart. He was 4th in class and 6th overall in the Snetterton 3-Hours behind two Ferrari 250GTOs and Dick Protheroe’s Low-Drag Coupe ‘Lightweight’ E-Type, ‘CUT 7’, whom he defeated subsequently at Mallory Park to record another race win.
