Peter worked in the Competitions Department for five years up to 1966 and had hands-on involvement in the construction of the XJ13. Although a number of people have since claimed involvement in the project, many did not even set foot in the Competitions Department! - Peter is one of the few surviving members who can claim first-hand participation in the building of the XJ13 Le Mans prototype racer.
Since leaving Jaguar, he has worked in a number of prominent and senior positions in the automotive industry including time spent Brico Engineering, Cummins Diesel Engines and British Leyland. Since his retirement in 1999 he has written the definitive work on the Competitions Department between 1961 and 1966 including not only the XJ13, but a significant era in the racing and development of the E-Type. I can heartily recommend Peter's book "Cat Out of the Bag"
