Have Dinner with Brian Redman this Weekend
The Simeone Foundation is hosting a dinner this Friday May 6 with Brian Redman as part of their Jaguar Racing Legends weekend. Redman is a marvelous storyteller in interviews I’ve seen with him, but have never had the pleasure of seeing him speak live. I always enjoy hearing the tales from drivers of Redman’s era, as much for their exploits off-track as on, and I’m sure Brian’s stories of his travels as well as his successes in sports car and Formula racing.
Even better, admission to the dinner includes your ticket for the following day’s demonstration day at the museum, with some very special Jaguars on display. The museum collection’s gorgeous ’53 C-Type and ’56 D-Type are sure to figure prominently and Jaguar Cars is bringing a special guest from Jaguar Heritage Museum to the party as well: the Group 44 “B” Production class E-Type that was so successful in SCCA events in ’74 and ’75.
I do hope that Simeone will be filming Brian’s presentation—and hopefully throwing it online for the rest of us to enjoy later. Either way, it sounds like it will be a fun weekend in Philadelphia. Be sure to send in some photos if you attend.
Tickets available at Simeone’s site.
