The E-type Club Round Britain Coastal Drive, supporting Prostate Cancer UK is really gathering momentum now.

Over 100 Jaguar E-types have already booked for one or more of the 18 daily stages round the coastal roads of Great Britain. One of those is Formula 1 legend Ross Brawn who masterminded Michael Schumacher's seven World Championships.

Brawn has a fantastic collection of cars, reflecting his time with Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar, including a pair of stunning E-types.

A simple two (wicker) seat machine with an Ash wood frame, powered by a 165cc flat twin two stroke engine, the Economic total weight was just 150lbs.

ALTHOUGH I’VE BEEN penning this column for more years than I care to remember, it only recently struck me that I’ve never looked into the products of a short-lived yet highly innovative diecast manufacturer within the British Isles.

Because of a factory fire at the Spot-on Belfast plant in 1967, this line of toy production ceased, guaranteeing this marque a collecting following in the years to come.
