Lightweight E-Type, Team Cunningham
Simply dubbed the ‘Lightweight E-Type’, Jaguar’s new racing car was entrusted to privateer entrants, some of whom received factory support. Among them was of course John Coombs but also American Briggs Cunningham, who ordered three cars for an all-out assault on Le Mans. One of the first major outings for the Lightweight was the 1963 Sebring 12 Hours where two examples placed 7th and 8th overall. They finished 1st and 2nd in the four-litre GT class but were beaten by three Ferrari 250 GTOs that raced in the under three-litre class.
