Champion motor racer Nathan Freke clocked up his second finish in the world famous Nurburgring 24 hour race in Germany. In addition to completing the gruelling race around the 13 mile Green Hell Nordschleife circuit the Jaguar XF24 took an unexpected class win after a near faultless run, ending up 92nd overall in front of more powerful and better funded cars in the 190 starters. Nathan drove the car for 8 out of the 24 hours registering the fastest lap in the car of the 3 drivers.

“I am ecstatic to have brought the car home in what is probably the most difficult of the 24 hr races on the calendar. The mix of cars means that you have to be concentrating a peak level all the time and as the circuit is so long you never really get to master it completely. Driving in the dark is particularly hard when the faster cars can be closing with speed differentials of 50 mph with their lights flashing. To finish is fantastic, to finish 92nd even better, and to win the class in the cars first 24 hour race is unbelievable. My thanks to my co drivers, Colin White, and Rob Carvell, and to Carvell Racing for doing a super job keeping the car going.”
