Jaguar introduced the E-Type in 1961 the sports car market was transformed. The styling and performance at the price was a revelation. It did not take long for the E-Type to make its track debut. Fast forward half a century and the E-Types are still on the track at various historic racing events. In the historic and vintage racing scene there has been a strong movement to not over restore cars. I like this image, shot in the early morning light and sufficiently backlite to bring out the dents and ripples in this old beauty.
Battle Scars was shot at the 2015 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. The image was made with a Nikon D750 DSLR.
