Jersey Road Race
Did you know that the 1952 Jersey
“Grand Prix” was won by a brand new
C Type Jaguar from the world
renowned Ecurie Ecosse team? This car
had just been driven straight from
the factory to Jersey so it had to
complete a running in period of 1000
miles around our little lanes before
the race. Mr. Salmon (see above)
remembers doing 140mph along the
five mile road in it!
