Jaguar E-type 60th Anniversary Tour to Geneva 2021
Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) is planning a tour to Geneva in March 2021 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Jaguar E-type.
JDHT ran a very successful tour in 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary and to celebrate the 60th we are taking 60 E-types to Geneva – including the first roadster, 77 RW, and the last, HDU 555N.
The tour will begin from the JDHT Collection at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon with a ‘start of event’ dinner on Sunday 7th March 2021 before heading off the following morning, across the south of England crossing the channel via the Eurotunnel. Unlike Norman Dewis, who completed his ‘Dash to Geneva’ overnight, we will take a more leisurely route over several days to reach Geneva around 11th March for the Geneva Motor Show.
The tour will be accompanied by a JDHT support team including trained Jaguar technicians. We are pleased to be working in partnership with Jaguar Classic on this Tour and together we are sure participants will have a truly unique experience.
Exact dates, itinerary and costs are still to be confirmed.
At this stage we are just collecting ‘expressions of interest’. If you wish to participate, please follow the link on our home page www.JaguarHeritage.com and enter your details where indicated.
