The F Type S is a masterpiece of modern motoring having proved hugely popular across the globe with its sleek silhouette, sumptuous interior and amazing acceleration.
Thruxton Motor Circuit is not only home to the British Automobile Racing Club but it also hosts Formula 3 and British Touring Car races. Originally a World War II airfield, the perimeter road was turned into a circuit in 1968 after having been used for motorbike racing from 1950 to 1965. Today, Thruxton has plenty to offer any motoring enthusiast, and the chance to try driving a Jaguar F Type S on a circuit which has plenty of scope for testing out its incredible capacity for speed is one which is sure to appeal.
