There’s no better way of experiencing a sporty Jaguar than getting behind the wheel of the cars themselves. I had the chance to do laps with instructors during the Jaguar Track Days at the Red Bull Ring.
Jaguar Track day 2018
Red Bull Ring, Spielberg
I followed the invitation of the British car brand Jaguar and therefore went to beautiful Styria – where I grew up – to see how sporty the Jaguar models really are and also to learn a little from the experienced driving instructors.
190, 200, 210km/h. Straighten the car. Now brake hard in front of the Remus curve. The dynamic mode is activated and the Jaguar F-Type comes roaring out of the curve. There is no time to enjoy the magnificent panorama of the Red Bull Ring as the next bend on the Red Bull Ring is approaching. The blue Jaguar F-TYPE SVR with a 575 hp strong V8 has to be slowed down again.
At the Jaguar Track Day
The Red Bull Ring circuit was established as Österreichring and hosted the Formula 1 Austria GP for 18 consecutive years. Later it was shortened, rebuilt and renamed to A1-Ring, and until 2003 the Austrian Grand Prix took place there again. When Formula 1 left the track, a plan was drawn up to expand the layout. Parts of the track, including the pits and the main grandstand, were demolished, but the construction work was stopped and the track remained unusable for several years before being bought and rebuilt by Red Bulls Dietrich Mateschitz. The track was renamed Red Bull Ring and reopened on 15 May 2011.

JAGUAR F-TYPE SVR “The Art of Sound”
I was most impressed by the sound of the F-TYPE. So far I haven’t been able to find a sports car that produces a more enjoyable soundscape than this magnificent Jaguar.
