 This was the elegant sports car that set Williams

 Lyons` Swallow Sidecar company on the road to the

 world famous marque it is now , adopting the Jaguar

 name after WW2. The SS100 made its debut at the

 Spa 24-hour race in June 1936 and thereafter ran 3

 cars at the Brooklands 3-Hours ( 1938 ) and were  very succesful at Donington , winning 7 handicap races

 there before production was stopped to the outbreak

 of war. Mostly raced in production form with fenders

 and lights but a few stripped down racers , such as

 Goldmans raced also. Rally and hilclimb history too.

 The car on left won its handicap race at Donington
