Jaguar E-type owners to honour Norfolk creator

A convoy of E-type Jaguars led by enthusiast Kip Bertram will take part in a 50th anniversary run next month.

As well as showing of the iconic and much-loved sports car it will be a chance to honour the E-type's Norfolk-born creator – the late Malcolm Sayer who came from Cromer.

Mr Bertram, who bought his first E-type when he was 26, now has two red soft-top Series III roadsters. Both will feature in the anniversary run with Mr Bertram driving one and his wife Alison the other.

He hopes at least 20 E-types will take part in the parade on Saturday, August 20.

The E-typres will gather at The Forum in Norwich at about 9.15am where people can admire them for an hour or so. The convoy will then call in at HA Fox Jaguar in Cromer Road, Norwich, before driving to Aylsham and stopping at Blicking Hall at 11.30am for an hour.

Their final stop will be at Rollesby Broad before the convoy finishes at Mr Bertram's home at Bergh Apton where he will host drinks in the garden.
