The Diary SPRING/SUMMER
The Diary SPRING/SUMMER 2017 May 26th May TH E 35TH AMERICA’ S CUP IN BERMUDA Six 60mph sailing boats will take to the Great Bermuda Sound in May in the battle for the oldest trophy in sporting history — The America’s Cup. These are the new generation of 50ft foiling catamarans that fly across the water rather than plough through it. Powered by solid wings as long as those on a commercial airliner, they can sail more than three times the speed of the wind. Leading the charge for Great Britain — a nation yet to win a trophy it first established 166 years ago — are Land Rover BAR, helmed by Olympic legend Sir Ben Ainslie in a boat codeveloped with Land Rover.

Some of the greatest drivers who have ever lived cut their teeth driving Jaguars on and off the track. Mike Hawthorn’s courageous but inspired drives at the wheel of his Jaguar D-Type in the fifties are the stuff of schoolboy legend. In our new series “The Jaguar Club for Distinguished Fast Gentlemen”, award-winning documentary film writer Manish Pandey pens an incisive and moving portrait of the gifted, tragic figure of Hawthorn. Talented yet full of himself, this English playboy lived and drove in an era when motorsport regularly claimed the lives of many men as young and gifted as himself. His was a rare talent that enabled him to win both the fated Le Mans 24 Hours race in June 1955 and the Formula 1 World Championship in 1958, while still having enough chutzpah to walk away from racing at the top of his game to run his own business. Still, Hawthorn couldn’t avoid meeting his own untimely end, as he crashed in his Jaguar on an English public road in 1959, far off the tracks that propelled him to fame. 10th June EXPO 2017 IN KAZAKHSTAN The Kazakhstani capital of Astana will be the hosting city of the Expo 2017, as the Central Asian nation puts in its bid to become a world hub for sustainable energy.
