The British Motor Museum has announced a full schedule of motoring shows and events for 2021.
The ever-popular Retro Truck Show, Buses Festival and Gaydon Gathering all feature alongside a couple of newcomers.
The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust are planning a number of events in 2021 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Jaguar E-Type at Geneva in 1961. The museum will mark the occasion with the E-Type 60th Anniversary event on 24 April. Meanwhile, an exhibition opening early February and running to the end of May will focus on the evolution and development of the E-Type.
A 'Tour to Geneva’, in which the first E-Type Roadster, 77 RW, and the last E-Type built, HDU 555N, will be driven, accompanied by a group of E-Type owners, will also take place in April. The week-long tour will start with a driving day around Warwickshire on 24 April, which will finish with a gala dinner where a specially commissioned piece of artwork representing 77 RW will be unveiled.
