Jag XKR to join GT3 in 2007

Apex Motorsport is set to run at least six new Jaguar XKR Coupes in the FIA's '07 GT3 European Championship. The same people who brought us the Le Mans-winning Bentley back in 2003, Apex has taken on a new partner and been reformed for this venture. Should be refreshing to see this legendary name return to racing, especially in something that mimics the road cars so closely.

The Jags will join showroom rivals such as Aston Martin and Maserati on the tracks of Europe next year without official factory support but with Jaguar's blessing. The process of turning these new aluminum-bodied, supercharged Jags into race cars will start immediately at Apex's Buckingham, England shop. They are expected to be ready for the first race next season.
