I thought that there was a lack of Jag content......

These guys came up to Canada and ran at my track (at different times) when I was also running (thankfully not in the same race!)  The V12 XKE set a lap record.  It was 1978 for the XJS and earlier for the Huffaker XKE.

 

The car is a Group 44  car not a Huffaker car. The Huffaker car  had a single seat  rollbar

Shameless self promotion

Umm, isn't that livery right about the same age as the car it's on? I mean, it's super-duper cool but I'm not sure "vintage livery on modern car" applies ;)

So 1978 Trans Am and circa 1974 for the Huffaker Jag at Westwood for a rare international SCCA National?

Yup - and you are right - not many races for SCCA are credited up in Canada. We got Terry Visger in a Huffaker MGB and a really fast Volvo P1800 (I forget who was driving) plus Dick Workman in a 427 Cobra and several cars I don't recall in detail.

I checked my dates.  First NASCAR race at Westwood was 1973, the first SCCA National and the first ever outside the US was 1975, and the first Transam was 1977.

I switched to vintage racing when that started in 1981.

I wanted to put this pain scheme on a local dirt track car, including the number, and have it say "Thanks for the help from our secret supporters."

I remember BRE also fielded some Datsun 510's in the under 2 liter Trans Am and wrested the championship from Alfa Romeo's GTV coupes.
