I was there sharing Andrew Riley's XJS in Barry's race, an A35 in the Top Hat and Rod Longton's MGB in the Six Hour, none of which could keep up with the 3.5lt Anglebox

What exactly are you looking for .
There are about 3 lots of Homologation papers that might apply for a Mk2 Jag .
The 3.4 ones from 1960.
The 3.8 ones from 1960.
The 3.8 ones from 1966.

There are not many options & variations on those papers which are only 9 pages .
So I am guessing that Coombes Versions were items that were allowed freely under Gp 2 regs .
And the papers are 65 years old , so the printing & pictures are fading a bit .

But PM me with your Email if you want a copy .

So the rumour may be just that.....a rumour

And certainly there's at least one entered in this years Spa 6 hours.

It still is a Period F but if you are to apply for papers it's no longer gonna be a GTS but a GTP.

No Marcos papers have been issued as valid in GTS class, that is down to the organiser accepting cars on out of date papers and/or classifying them as they wish to.

Yes, this is what always has to be remembered! At the organisers discretion, you could be at an event racing against cars in GTS that have GTP papers, cars racing with out of date papers, pending papers, withdrawn papers, no papers........ I don't mind but would be nice if said organisers classified any such as cars as 'invitation' or similar. Sometimes it happens, but not often enough IMO.

So the whole system is a waste of time then?

Got it in one.Seems more of a cash cow than what HTPs were originally claimed to be.Why is the FIA involved anyway?Other than taking/screwing,as much money as they can from competitors and owners alike.Most historic events are not FIA sanctioned so why the need to show a set of meaningless papers.
