One of the main attractions of the show is the Saturday auction of 1,000 plus rare model Jaguars and automobilia, in addition to Sunday's special day dedicated to Jaguar.
“This is very special weekend for car fans in Yorkshire and the North of England”, said Councilor Kris Hopkins in a release for the press. “Each year we have tried to build the show and this year promises to be the best yet. Bradford and the surrounding area are famous for manufacturing cars with companies like Jowett and Ginetta. It is also world famous for its association with film which has recently been recognized with the special UNESCO City of Film award.”
Four famous Le Mans cars from Aston Martin Racing, Jaguar Heritage and Ginetta are also going to be displayed at the event, as Bradford celebrates the Le Mans 24-hour race this year. Moreover, over 150 classic and performance cars will be available for the public in the Centenary Square Bradford, including a Monica, an extremely rare supercar of the 1970s.
As for the Le Mans cars, Aston Martin Racing will be sending one of their three LMP1 cars along with driver Darren Turner. Ginetta is also sending their Le Mans LMP1 Ginetta-Zytek GZ09S along with driver Nigel Moore. Jonathan Turner, the Managing Director of Gulf UK, will be sending the ‘009’, the DBR9 which won the GT1 class in last year's race. While Jaguar Heritage will be sending their iconic 1988 Le Mans winning XJR-9LM, the APEX racing team is throwing in its Jaguar XK GT3.
