Jaguar at the Kitzbühel Alpine Rallye 2011

If you already have your sweetheart in the garage, don't need the hustle and bustle of the automobile fairs and want to test your new modifications and improvements in alpine surroundings after the winter break, you should register quickly at the 27th Kitzbühler Alpine Rallye or Bergfrühling Classic, which will take place from 28 to 31 May. If you prefer to sniff gasoline from the public gallery, you can't miss the German version of the Goodwood Revival - the Hockenheim Historic. this year in memory of the legendary Jim Clark, who died here 45 years ago.

Due to the numerous fatal accidents, the race in this form was soon banned. Twenty years later, in 1977, the Mille Miglia was resurrected as a historic car race, the "Mille Miglia Storica". The Jaguar's historic presence during the Mille Miglia prompted Jaguar Cars Limited to re-enact the old magic of the time for the second time through its Heritage Racing Team, which was founded in 2012. In 2013, Jaguar brings events to a visual denominator in a beautiful short film. Take your time and just look at it, it's worth it ...
