A group of sensational Jaguar E-types are coming to Berwick.

They are taking part in the ‘E-type Club Round Britain Coastal Drive, supporting Prostate Cancer UK’. They are due to leave Marshall Meadows Hotel at 9.30am.

Over 160 beautiful E-type Jaguars from around the world will be participating in the 18-day, 3,600-mile event. Some will be doing just one stage, others all 18.

This event, which is believed to be unique, is the brainchild of author Philip Porter who recently recovered from prostate cancer. He will be driving the entire route in his red E-type convertible, 848 CRY, which appeared in the iconic film, The Italian Job.

Supporters of the RBCD include Jools Holland, Brian Johnson, Jeremy Clarkson, Martin Brundle, Murray Walker and F1 legend Ross Brawn who will be driving one of his E-types on two stages.
