Series Elite is a new concept in motor racing – a series created exclusively for older racing drivers. It is a new one-make racing series with a lower-age restriction of 50 years, affording the more mature drivers an opportunity to compete on a level-playing field. The race car selected for the series is the new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR in GT4 specification, and the series will have a field of 20 cars.
Series Elite is for high net worth individuals, offering a turnkey racing opportunity and is designed to appeal to both amateurs and more experienced racers. Drivers will be provided with all the relevant training, testing and race experience needed to compete in the new series, with their cars stored and prepared at a centralised team facility.
A full race championship (MSA applied for status) will be held in 2019 with a further 10 cars joining the grid. The first race in 2019 is anticipated to be in May with 5 further events throughout 2019 including 1 International event at the end of the season – 12 races in total.
The race car for the series is based on the recently unveiled Jaguar F-TYPE GT4 newly designed and built specifically to Series Elite specifications. The car, based on the 200mph F-TYPE, has the supercharged V8 engine with rear wheel drive to meet FIA GT4 regulations and has been developed in-house at Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations facility in Coventry.
