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 40 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 XE Project 8 SVO built to Series Elite specifications. A 5.0 litre supercharged V8.
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 a Jaguar XE Project 8 by SVO and has a 5.0 litre supercharged engine with four-wheel drive.
The car has been developed in-house at Jaguars Special Vehicle Operations facility in Coventry.
