Chris Hoy and the Jaguar F-Type
Sir Chris Hoy talks track days, peak torque and the Jaguar F-Type
Posted: 14 Nov 2012
Sir Chris Hoy ("just Chris"), Britain's greatest Olympian, the owner of six gold medals across three Olympics, appears to be well-informed about Jaguar's new F-Type. But he is a brand ambassador, and knows his way around an XKR: "I could get the bike in the coupe, no problem at all, but I've just got a convertible for the first time and I'm loving the pops and bangs you get from the exhaust." He's also part of Jag's Academy of Sport, a programme set up a few years ago to not only provide bursary awards to promising young athletes, but, perhaps more importantly, to give them access to current sporting greats for inspiration, motivation and training. Yep, this is about establishing legacy, and Jag got there ahead of the Olympics.
