Swinging Sixties E-type 60 Celebration with Minis

June 12, 2021 - June 13, 2021

E-Type 60 at Shelsley Walsh

Owners of the humble yet much-adored Mini, in all its classic forms, are invited to join in the celebration of that other iconic sixties British classic – the Jaguar E-type – at its 60th-anniversary event at Shelsley Walsh.

Minis and Jaguar E-Types

The two legendary cars often slug it out for the top spot in public votes on the Best British Car Ever, but for the weekend of 12-13 June 2021, any such rivalries will be put aside to celebrate 60 years since the launch of the E-type by reviving the cars, music, and fashion of the ‘Swinging Sixties’.

One of the unifying features of the event will be an homage to the 1969 film ‘The Italian Job’, a movie that beautifully captured the mood, energy, and cars of the carefree decade. The actual E-type used in the film – repaired and restored since its rather one-sided fight with a Mafia bulldozer – will be on show alongside a trio of red, white, and blue Mini Coopers and the original six-wheeled coach, rescued from the cliff edge.

The organizers are delighted to have support from Mini legend Paddy Hopkirk MBE, whose relationship with the car started in 1963 with competitive racing on the Tour de France Automobile and the world-famous Monte Carlo Rally.

Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb

Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motorsport venue in the world still running events on its original course. Since 1905, Shelsley Walsh has attracted world-famous drivers.
