POTW: JAG XJS AT GOODWOOD

Picture Of The Week celebrates Jaguar's most spirited getaway award at Goodwood


The cloud of tyre smoke left by Morgan's Matt Humphreys in the Plus 8 looked like a good bet for the coveted 'most spirited getaway' award from Wednesday's Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival press day. But it seems he was pipped to the celebrated title by Alex Buncombe in the mighty V12 XJS, recorded in fine style in this super crisp photo from Goodwood.

Look carefully and you can actually see the massive side exhausts blasting straw out of the bales beside the track, this being the second time Jaguar has won this title after Anthony Reid set light to a set of rear tyres in the XFR last year.

And if the picture alone isn't enough we can combine POTW with Time For Tea? and share with you a fabulous bit of footage of Tom Walkinshaw manhandling the XJS round Bathurst. As the commentator says, 'here comes the boss!', this actual car - chassis number five of seven - actually raced around Mt Panorama itself.
