Chris Harris is one of those guys that everyone wants to meet and everyone wants to be; a true petrolhead with a passion for speed and performance. In this video we have here, Chris is lucky enough to get to drive a Lightweight Jaguar E-Type at the Goodwood Revival race.
The story gets even better for Chris Harris. Not only is this his first time driving the Lightweight E-Type , it is his first drive in any E-Type . Blasting around a racetrack in the best version of one of the best cars every made seems like a great way to get acquainted with said machine. Sadly, there isn’t any video of Chris actually driving the car, all the on-track footage comes from the qualifying where his co-driver Gary Pearson was behind the wheel. Still we get a good interview with Chris about the experience before he gets to race and we get some nice insight into how an auto journalist thinks and feels before an exciting experience like this.
Chris Harris, I envy you, and I hope you enjoyed yourself. Now hit that play button and turn that volume up. You may not get to see Chris drifting the Jag Lightweight around the track like a hooligan, but the last half of this video is crammed full of nothing but loud and angry exotic motors at full chat. It is awesome.
