Video: Sideways Jaguar D-Type! Onboard with Win Percy

Submitted by on February 11, 2014

Win Percy Jaguar OnboardTouring Car great Win Percy campy narrates a completely sideways lap of Goodwood.

Take a ride around Goodwood in 2002 as Win Percy narrates his way through 14 laps during the Sussex Trophy. Percy is certainly not shy about pushing the Mike Hawthorn chassis Jaguar D-Type of 1955 to the limit, and the results are spectacular. We’re lucky enough to have obtained the authentic onboard footage of Hawthorn steering this Jag around Le Mans in 1956 – watch it here.

We’ve set the video up to start from our favorite lap (3), however if you’d like to watch the race from the beginning you’ll be rewarded with an interesting insight into the nerves that even a driver like Win Percy feels during the immediate build up to a race.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, the Jaguar D-Type looks every bit as good as it sounds. Check out the full gallery here. Unfortunately for the rest of us, they remain quite expensive – take a look at the last one we saw pop up for sale!
