I always loved E-Type and a couple of years ago I stumbled upon the project of the Russo Baltic Racing Team. My attention was caught by this incredibly good looking E-type and then I discovered the rest of the story: the RBR started as a professional racing team for historic events and at a later time they started offering to rent (with full technical support and accompanying mechanics) their Jaguars to take part in historic events.

The Jaguar E-type VS-1968 in recent years took part in several events across Europe: 4 Rallies Monte-Carlo Historique, Targa Florio, Nurburgring 24 hours, 2 Rallye des Princesses, GranPremio Terre di Canossa, 2 Rallye de Paris, Trophe en Corse.

The Jag was acquired in the UK and then fully prepared by RBR in their Latvia Workshop. The engine was fully rebuild and a safety rool cage was added. Other modifications to make it suitable for historic racing and a FIA passport are extra deep lamps, racing brakes, an improved cooling sistem and the comunication equiment. The color was also changed from silver to the racy red chosen by RBR as their team color.

  • True. Who needs trophies if you've got an E-type in the garage...

  • Yes, totally worth it for the pre crunch photos. Also, if you can afford an E-type to go rallying you can probably afford the repair bills. Probably.

  • No doubt. Also a potentially very expensive way to go backwards into a wall. Look good doing it though.
