COMMENT   Thank you to all those who helped make the 18th running of the Cotswold Economy Drive, sponsored by Retro-Speed Magazine such a success. And that includes the marshals, the staff at The Evesham Hotel and Ragley Hall, and Mr. and Mrs. Peter Taylor, who once again put their filling station at our disposal. Date for next year - 20 August. We are already planning the route.

RETRO-FACT  The Jaguar E-type, powered by a twin-cam 3.8-litre engine and available as fixed head coupe or convertible, was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961. The engine size was enlarged to 4.2 litres in 1964. Then, in 1971, the venerable twin-cam was replaced with the brand new 5.3-litre V12. The heavily modified car at 146mph and 14.5mpg was slower and considerably more thirsty than the 1961 original. Production of the Jaguar E-type finished in 1974.
