Over 70 years after it was first campaigned at Goodwood, HWM 1 will be back on the Goodwood track and will be jostling with other late 40s and early 50s sports racing cars on the historic Lavant straight. Gregor is supremely honoured to be racing the HWM in the Peter Collins race.
‘HWM 1’ has a great Goodwood story. It’s first official outing was at the 1957 Easter Monday Goodwood race meeting, driven by British race driver, Peter Blond. Peter raced the HWM in the Sussex Trophy to 5th place and later that year finished 1st at both Brands Hatch and Oulton Park with other top podium places throughout 1957. Blond returned to visit his old friend in the Mews earlier this month and told us he was still enraptured by this British Racing Green beauty.
As well as being entered by the 'works' for the 1956 edition of the Mille Miglia, it also has an enviable competition history with victories at Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Snetterton. It’s no doubt these victories are powered by Jaguar’s famous 3.4 litre straight six engine, which has been maintained during a recent total rebuild, including a change of the front bodywork to its original configuration.
This weekend, 72 years after it’s first official outing, HWM 1 will be once again down on Goodwood’s famous track in the Peter Collins race. To get up close and personal to this racing legend visit her in the paddocks to catch her whilst you can! Gregor and the team look forward to seeing you down there come rain or shine.
Offered with a valid FIA Historic Technical Passport, original period registration of ‘HWM 1’, and an extremely interesting history file, this 1955 HWM Jaguar is eligible for entry into many of the more prestigious historic motoring events.
