Hi Reg,
Great to hear from you. Thanks for the information. My understanding
is that Albert raced the car prior to your ownership. Presumably, the
Magna wheels were already fitted to it when you took ownership of the
car(?). If you have any other photos of the car, please let me know.
Thank you.

Hi Roger,yes,Albert raced it from I believe 1957 as a 2.4 right up to
1968.He developed it into an outright race winner.He was a great
driver and engineer.The Magnas were on the car for many years and
looked fantastic as did the paint
job.www.racing70s.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/racing70s/.../bmcsaloon_03.htm?
Link shows the car at Silverstone in my hands,cica 1975.In those days
it sported triple webers and about 275 BHP.There are many clips of it
on YouTube at the Goodwood revival in recent years,often winning.Best
regards,Reg.

Roger,if you do a google images search you'll find 3 shots of UXF 363
which I think were probably taken at Snetterton.

Reg,
Thanks for that. I also came across the Walworth Racing Team Jaguar MkII
3.8 driven by Rod Forbes. The picture of it at Thruxton in 1969 shows
that it also had JAP Magna wheels. Do you recall that one?

Comment by THOMAS P
Roger,yes I recall it and the E Type of the same team? Albert also raced
a customer E type once,the Brian Spicer car maybe,at Thruxton.
UXF was so quick round Snetterton in its most developed form even
beating American V8's on occasion.

Hi Reg,
Thanks to your steer, I found a great picture by Richard Styles of
Brian Spicer’s E-type at Snetterton 28th August 1967. It is dark green
with a lighter green nose & racing stripe. The lighter green is
repeated on the JAP Magna wheels. It's a very puposeful-looking beast.
Is this the one that you remember?

Reg,
I've added the picture of Brian Spicer's E-Type at the top of this post.
It certainly looks quick!
Cheers,
Roger
