About Series Elite
In 2018, Series Elite created a new concept in motor racing – a one-make racing series created exclusively for the mature racing driver. The goal was to afford drivers of any ability an opportunity to compete on a level playing field. We carefully selected the new Series Elite specification Jaguar XE Project 8 SVO, and the 2019 series had a field of up to 20 cars.
In 2020, Series Elite is embarking upon a new challenge, racing in the GTA Class of the GT Cup Championship. We are racing up to 6 of our Jaguar Project 8 cars throughout the 26 rounds at top UK race tracks.
Series Elite offers a turnkey racing opportunity and is designed to appeal to high net worth individuals from amateurs to more experienced racers. Drivers will be provided with all the relevant training, testing and race experience needed to compete in the new GT Cup Championship series, with their cars stored and prepared at a centralised team facility.
A full race series will be held in 2020 with up to 6 Jaguar Project 8 race cars joining the GT Cup Championship grid. The first outing in 2020 will be 18th/19th April with 6 further racing events in 2020 including several Series Elite Experience Days throughout the year at Silverstone and Donington.
The Series Elite race is a Jaguar XE Project 8 by SVO built to our Series Elite specifications. The car has the 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine with four-wheel drive and has been developed in-house at Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations facility in Coventry.
Series Elite is also offering competitors and partners the chance to take part in several exclusive events and activities. These activities are organised away from the track, including Ice Driving, sporting events, experience days, exclusive dinners and charity events.
The masterminds behind Series Elite are Totally Motorsport Group Holdings, a consortium experienced in business and the motorsport industry.
It is led by long-time motorsport entrepreneur, Graeme Glew, who has developed the concept and will oversee the development of Series Elite.
“Currently there is no motorsport series that caters specifically for older drivers who want to compete at a high level with like-minded racers. We’re filling this gap with Series Elite. Our competitors will own their own cars, but all the other aspects of going racing, preparing the cars, transporting them, arranging the hospitality, accommodation and coaching – will be arranged for them. With time at a premium, it will allow drivers to go racing and fulfil their desire and passion to go racing with minimal effort and fit in to their busy lifestyle”.
“Our offering will also extend off-track too, with high class hospitality and exclusive lifestyle events outside of race weekends to expand the race experience into new areas, whether this be ice driving or extreme off-roading” – Graeme Glew.
