2014 Monaco Historic

2014 Monaco Historic

Before their entry on the Mille Miglia two of the C-types were entered in the Series C race for sports racing cars raced from 1952 to 1955 at the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. One of the cars – the ex-Fangio C-type – won the race at the hands of Alex Buncombe. 

The other C-type entrant from the same Monaco sports car race, Richard Frankel, drove his 1952 C-type (the 1952 Reims winning car we featured in the June 2012 issue) the 200 miles from Monte Carlo to Brescia on Sunday evening, after his brother Andrew safely brought the Jaguar home in Monaco from a crowded grid of 37 cars.  This C-type is also famous for the journey it made in 1952 – from Coventry to the Monaco Grand Prix – where it finished sixth and was the first non-Ferrari home. The car was driven by Tommy Wisdom in that race and then driven back to the UK.
