Jaguar Cars and Jaguar Racing were proud to play host to the launch of the NSPCC Coventry campaign at the Browns Lane facility in Coventry, England on Monday night. (17-02-03)The evening, attended by Jaguar Racing drivers Mark Webber and Antonio Pizzonia as well as top management from both Jaguar divisions, raised over £20,000 in aid of the NSPCC -thanks mainly to a fabulous auction hosted by former Top Gear presenter Quentin Wilson. Amongst the items to go under the hammer, one of Mark Webber’s 2003 racing helmets fetched £1000, Antonio Pizzonia’s testing overalls £700, a penalty shootout with Michael Owen £2000 and a racing weekend at Jonathan Palmer’s racing school went for £1400. Another silent auction including R3 gear components, a signed R3 end plate, signed racing gloves and boots and signed prints of sporting legends past and present also contributed to the overall total on a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening. Jaguar Cars and Jaguar Racing are extremely proud to be associated with such a worthwhile cause. Approximately two children in Great Britain die every day at the hands of their carers or parents and raising money and awareness for this cause is extremely important to Jaguar Cars, commented Stuart Dyble, Director of Communications and Public Affairs for Jaguar Cars. Other special guests attending the evening included former Jaguar winner, Sir Stirling Moss, Coventry City FC player/ manager Gary McAllister and ITV F1 commentators Louise Goodman and James Allen.
