The British Racing Drivers Shelve Plans To Sell Silverstone

The British Racing Drivers' Club Limited has cancelled plans to sell Silverstone Circuits Limited. Silverstone owners have abandoned plans to sell Silverstone. The British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC) said it made the decision following the $8 billion takeover of Formula One World Championship Limited by The Liberty Media Group (NasdaqGS:FWON.K) in early 2017. Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc had been among the suitors for the Northampton shire circuit as the BRDC sought investment to safeguard its place on the F1 calendar, but John Grant, Chairman of The British Racing Drivers' Club, said, “The organisation had decided to continue on a go-it-alone basis. After further reflection and, in particular, completion of the sale of Formula 1 to Liberty Media, Board has now decided to shelve discussions about a sale."

Jaguar Announces Enhancements to F-Pace, XF and XE Sports Saloons

Jaguar has announced a range of enhancements to its F-PACE performance SUV and XF and XE sports saloons. The 2018 model year updates see the debut of Jaguar Land Rover's latest Ingenium engines and new convenience and safety features available across all three vehicles to deliver more choice and personalization than ever before. The updates come on the back of a strong start to the year for Jaguar in the UK. More than 2,694 vehicles made their way onto UK driveways in January, an increase of 20% on January 2016, giving the brand its best January UK performance ever. In 2016 Jaguar sold more vehicles in the UK than ever before, surpassing a 12 year old record. The popularity of the XE, XF and F-PACE were key in helping the brand to retail 34,728 vehicles in the UK last year, a 17% climb on 2015.Jeremy Hicks, In addition, F-PACE benefits from an efficient new E-Performance diesel derivative, which promises CO2 emissions as low as 126g/km. The new 200PS (available with XE and XF) and 250PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines use Jaguar Land Rover's low friction all-aluminium-intensive design to provide excellent thermal properties and lightweight construction for improved efficiency and enhanced vehicle dynamics. Models with the 200PS engine wear a 20t badge while 250PS derivatives are identified by 25t badging. The diesel range is bolstered by the introduction of the 240PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin turbo Ingenium diesel. This high output 500Nm engine delivers traditional Jaguar performance without compromising running costs. The strengthened engine has uprated pistons, crankshaft and fuel injectors and is the first four-cylinder Jaguar Land Rover engine to deploy twin turbos.
