Anyway, it's a pretty impressive lap. The karousel didn't look like

There was a real Jag XJR9 LeMans car on road plates (and taxed - IIRC,
the tax disk did indeed say "Jaguar", too) at Harpenden's Classics on the
Common last year...

I seem to recall somebody'd road-legalled a McLaren M6(?) CanAm or
similar car, too - and there's at least one road-reg Porsche 962.
