The Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club is excited to announce that British GT driver, Paul Vice will be available for interviews from 13.30 on Friday 22 March at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery 2019.
The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club are sponsoring the Invictus Games Racing Jaguar F – Type entry in this year’s British GT championship and Paul Vice is one of the team of three alongside Steve McCulley and Matthew George in their second season.
In 2000, aged just 16, Paul Vice MC joined the Royal Marines. By 2011 he was on his fourth tour of Afghanistan when on foot patrol in Helmand Province, Paul stepped on an IED. He suffered a traumatic brain injury resulting in paralysis of his right arm, and more than 400 pieces of shrapnel were removed from his body by surgeons. He was, as a subsequent documentary called him, ‘The Commando Who Refused to Die’.
The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club will be holding a public Q&A on the stand and chatting with Paul Vice to hear more about his fascinating and inspiring journey into motorsport. There will be opportunities for questions from the audience, as well as one to one interview slots for any show accredited media.
The GT4 Jaguar F-Type SVR run by Invictus Games Racing had its first public outing this year at the media preview for British GT at Donington Park, so we are excited to hear about how testing has gone and what development has been achieved with the car at the show.
