My uncle had this car new,he was a fiend of Mr. Lions, they both had a property near Salcombe in Devon. My Uncle Jack also had an early Xk 120 and a 140, I still have some of the original purchase invoices.The etype was definately not red as above and not this reg. number, it is white,and has not been on the road since early to mid seventies.

Story (one of many) discussing the 50th anniversary of the E-type contains the below text:
"Highlighting the legendary Jaguar's central role at this year's Silverstone Classic, one of the very first Jaguar E-Types produced will be on the grid at Silverstone. This historic car, the 11th Jaguar E-Type made (chassis number 850011) will be one of many contesting the two HSCC E-Type Challenge races at the Silverstone Classic in July."

Reg.# is wrong (it's that of Phil Porter's 850012).
E-Type register shows RL 26, raced by well known Jack Lambert in the early 60s (several good results in GT and sportscar categories incl. 1st place at Silverstone in Jul'61 and Mallory Park in Sep'61). Looks like Peter's uncle Jack . . .
I try to upload a late photo of 850011 (owner: Gary Pearson), as it is shown on silverstoneclassic.com/jaguar-e-type-turns-50-at-silverstone-classic/

Link with more history was provided by Rafe Sabre. Also speaking about 2011 the E-Type's 50th anniversary it includes the below text:
The historic car on display was the 11th Jaguar E-Type car made, chassis number 850011 and will be one of the many contesting the two HSCC Jaguar E-Type Challenge races at the Silverstone Classic in July. These early pre-production cars were sold to selected customers who would race them, gaining valuable promotion. This car went to George Wicken, a successful Formula 2 driver who raced it throughout 1961 against the likes of Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Bruce McLaren and was one of only two E-Types entered for the 1961 TT at Goodwood. It now competes successfully in historic racing driven by owner Gary Pearson.
