Article by Christian A., on April 29, 2014

Jaguar Heritage Racing will challenge the Mille Miglia classic car endurance race that will place from May 15 to 18. The Mille Miglia, which covers 1,000 miles from Brescia to Rome and back to Brescia, will be challenged by 10 of most sought-after historic Jaguar cars – all historically significant XKs, C-types and D-types -- as driven by top-name drivers that include stage and screen actors, plus fashion models as well as motor sport and music celebrities.

All of them will be assigned with historic Jaguar vehicles as they tackle 1,000 miles of tough driving for four memorable days. Among these celebrities is Jay Leno, American TV talk show host classic car enthusiast and Jaguar collector.

He will pilot ex-Sir James Scott-Douglas 1951 Jaguar XK 120 roadster. Elliot and Erin Gleave –husband-and-wife music/TV celebrities – will take on another 1951 XK 120 roadster – the ex-Duncan Hamilton racer registered LXF 731. The ex-Jim Swift racing XK120 roadster will be piloted by multiple award-winning British actor Jeremy Irons.

A XK140 formerly owned by British racing driver David Hobbs will be driven by Scottish singer and songwriter Amy Macdonald. On the other hand Jaguar Vehicle Integrity Chief Engineer Mike Cross will pilot the ex-Stirling Moss Monthlery record-breaking XK120 Coupé that is registered as LWK 707.

Author David Blakeley and TV presenter Jodie Kidd will be riding a Jaguar XK120 that was piloted by Daniel-Day Lewis in the 2013 event. Jaguar Heritage Racing will also field three popular C-type racing cars.

They will be driven by Belgian singer-songwriter Milow, Jaguar Land Rover Regional Director for Europe Bernard Kuhnt, and AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson. Former Jaguar Le Mans 24 Hours race winner Andy Wallace will pilot the Jaguar C-type that captured 1952 Reims Grand Prix crown. [source: Jaguar]
