After the Event
Jaguar World Monthly, Jaguar C-type, June 2012
A genuine moment of motoring pleasure was changing down. Double dip the clutch pedal, give the throttle pedal a tiny flick with your foot and as you do, ease the gearstick from third into second. The revs rise in an instant, but the extra torque is controllable, making it easy to power out of a corner, the car dancing around on the thin rubber as you do so. Just for a moment I was Stirling Moss.’
