The most powerful road legal Jaguar car to date, it has set a Nürburgring record twice, with this particular vehicle
being number 1 of 300. On the way to the shooting school, many topics were raised including cars, styling,
photography but it would be Tom’s candid description on what sort of car he was travelling in (viewers to make their
own minds up) that brought an abrupt pause in the conversation, due to pretty heavy laughter.
They also talked about the romance of cars and guns and in particular the hammer gun by Purdey, which David used to
cleanly hit the tough clays, but managed to evade the easy ones. Personal interests were discussed including David’s
notoriety for challenging people to roast potato offs – a trial we await against Tom’s wife who he thinks genuinely
makes the best roast potatoes.
A great day’s shooting, with special thanks to all our partners involved, the pilot episode will be the first of
many, so please stay tuned for the next Rakes on the Road episode.
