According to their website, “The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women”.In 2018, Invictus Games Racing was set up with the aim of selecting a group of wounded, injured and sick (WIS) veterans of the British Armed Forces to compete in the 2018-19 British GT Championships as part of a new motor racing team in specially-designed  Jaguar sports cars.

Invictus Games Racing was a collaboration between James Holder, co-founder of the successful clothing brand Superdry, and the Invictus Games Foundation. Holder commissioned Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division to develop and build two bespoke F-TYPE SVR racing cars to GT4 specification in which the selected drivers could compete. The team’s mission was to give WIS servicemen or women the opportunity to experience the adrenaline of competitive racing and inspire others to embrace the Invictus Games ethos of 'Triumph over Adversity'.

At the launch of the programme in 2018 John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, said, “The F-TYPE SVR was the first series production Jaguar developed by SVO, exemplifying our precision engineering, performance and design capabilities. It’s appropriate that this specially-commissioned F-Type SVR will be the first SVO-designed race car to hit the track. While the F-Type SVR is all about duality – the 200mph all-weather supercar that you can drive every day – this bespoke commission is 100% competition focused. SVO’s world-class attention to detail in high-performance design and engineering are inherent in both.”

Key modifications to the F-Type SVR include optimising the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine for competition use, fitting motorsport-specification brakes, wheels, tyres, suspension and transmission components and converting the all-wheel-drive SVR to rear-wheel drive. 

During the 2018 season, competing in the ultra-competitive British GT championship, the team and drivers went through the usual steep learning curve when competing in the high profile GT series in the UK. The renowned motorsport engineering company, David Appleby Engineering, who have been running competition cars for over 30 years, worked hard behind the scenes with Jaguar’s SVO’s division to ensure the impressive rate of development in both car and driver.All of this hard work came to fruition during the 2019 season:

  • Oulton Park Race 1: 1st GT4 Pro-Am (6th GT4 Overall)

  • Oulton Park Race 2: 2nd GT4 Pro-Am (2nd GT4 Overall)

  • Snetterton Race 2: 2nd GT4 Pro-Am

  • Spa: 2nd GT4 Pro-Am

For reference, #JLRS.VOG.40002 was campaigned in the 2018/2019 as ‘Car 44’ and #JLRS.VOG.40003 campaigned in the 2018 season as ‘Car 22’ and was used as the test car in 2019 season.

As the story behind this amazing project is unique, along with the fact that these two cars were specially commissioned by Jaguar Land Rover themselves, Silverstone Auctions have decided to offer both cars and the significant spares package as one Lot at our 2020 Race Retro Competition Car Sale. Please note that the spares will not be at the sale b
