ADVANCE ANNOUNCEMENT
THE JAGUAR XK 120 in COMPETITION
Racing and rallying in the UK and Europe

NEW and EXCLUSIVE to Paul Skilleter Books
This book will ONLY be available directly from us!


Late 2018 is the target date for publication of our latest new book, The Jaguar XK 120 in Competition in the UK and Europe.

After four years in the making, this will be easily most comprehensive and informed account of the XK 120’s competition career in the UK and Europe ever compiled. It is mainly pictorial and covers not only the works and famous-owner cars of the 1950s, but also the efforts of amateur drivers over the years. Detailed coverage is extended into the late 1960s and 70s when the XK 120 re-emerged as a highly-competitive historic racer, while the story is brought right up to date with an examination of the XK racing scene in recent years to date.


The Foreword is written by Mrs Pat Quinn, the eldest daughter of Sir William and Lady Greta Lyons. As Pat Appleyard, she and Ian Appleyard took the immortal NUB 120 to many rally successes in the early 1950s, including winning the first Alpine Gold Cup ever awarded for three successive penalty-free runs in the International Alpine Rally.

The XK 120 in Competition is written by historic XK owner and researcher Dr James Fraser and edited by Paul Skilleter, with input from David Bentley, Terry McGrath and other leading XK historians. The XK 120 in Competition is in the same large, high-quality format as our acclaimed XK ‘Explored’ series. It extends to approx. 500 pages, lavishly illustrated with some 1,200 illustrations. These come from not only the private collections of James Fraser and Paul Skilleter but also from leading photo-libraries worldwide. The majority of these images have never been published before.

Many hundreds of XK 120s which have competed are identified by registration number, chassis number (where known), and by driver. Indeed it is suspected that some owners will not have known until this book is published that their XK 120 had a competition history! A number of famous or particularly interesting XK 120s are individually profiled, again using many photographs which have seldom, or never, been published before. A Registration index may be made available online so you can check if your car is covered and, if so, buy the book!

Only 500 copies will be available for sale. Pricing has not yet been determined but will be around £200 for the standard edition.

Or, for those who want the best, a leather-bound limited edition of 120 copies will be available - this is gold blocked and comes in a slip-case, and will be signed by the author James Fraser, Paul Skilleter and personalities connected with the XK 120 in competition.

If you want to be advised when this book is available, please Contact Us along with your email, name and approximate location.
