Synopsis:
"Racing Through Time" is an exceptional series entailing the sensational beginnings of a much loved global sport. From the grease and glamour, to the danger and thrills, this is an action-packed, fact filled tour of the world of motor racing, featuring in-depth stories on the legends of motor racing, the high-performance machines, the men behind the wheel, and the circuits that have made history. William Lyons founded the company that was to become Jaguar in Blackpool in 1922. His first vehicles were side-cars for motorcycles, however he quickly realised that having his products seen on the racing circuit was a sure-fire way of raising his company's profile.
So, by the mid 1930s William had moved his company to Coventry and was now building sports cars! Blessed with a team of highly talented engineers, Jaguar produced the XK120, a highly powerful car that was capable of speeds of up to 132mph, and the subsequent C-Type and D-Type models that really set the Coventry marque on the road to racing and commercial success. Indeed, victories at the 1951 and 1953 Le Mans with the C-Type Jaguar and subsequent successes at the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Le Mans with the D-Type Jaguar made the company a famous name worldwide, a position it still holds to this day. Including superb archive footage and interviews with Jaguar's competition director, Raymond 'Lofty' England and ex-driver Duncan Hamilton...
