Apex Jaguar X KRS - Ready For Silverstone

The new Apex Jaguar XKRS is currently running through final testing in preparation for the first race in the GT3 European Championship at Silverstone on 2nd May.

The new-look supercharged Jaguar, in striking Kyanite Blue, recently tested at a wet Donington with driver Johnny Mowlem, then again at Snetterton where it impressed the team with its improved performance and handling.

The new side exhaust system and wider rear wheel arches have dramatically improved aerodynamics, and an upgraded brake system coupled with a new suspension has given the Apex Jaguar improved handling on the track.

The Apex team returns to the Championship under management of John Christie, who commented: "The whole team has had to work really long hours to be ready for the season opener, but the car has performed really well in testing and I'm confident that the new 2009 XK will cause a stir at Silverstone."

The new 4.2-liter supercharged V8 Jaguar will be up against some fierce competition in the 2009 GT3 Series, but judging by the reaction of the drivers who've spent time with the new XKRS on the track, it's certainly going to be in contention.

The first race of the GT3 European Championship is scheduled for 14:30 on Saturday 2nd May at Silverstone.
