Jaguar Driver Overtakes 43 Cars in One Lap of the Nordschleife

Jaguar Driver

For this Jaguar driver taking his race taxi passenger on a lap of the Nordschleife, this video shows it’s just another day at the office.

The old saying goes ‘If you choose the job you love, you’ll never work again’. This Jaguar driver appears to be the embodiment of that truth.

In this video, Dale Lomas hammers his Jaguar F-Type SVR Race Taxi around the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife circuit on a busy Wednesday evening. Dale is far from being careless as he passes everything in sight. He’s aware and comfortable enough to give running commentary to his passenger through particularly sticky areas in the traffic. He even points out to his passenger that the biker they passed still isn’t checking his mirrors.

Dale’s car is a mostly stock F-Type SVR with the carbon brake option. It’s only modifications are for safety, so it has a full roll cage, Recaro Pole Position seats, and 6-point harnesses.

His obsession with cars started young and has left him stranded miles off-road in Land Rovers, being lost far from home in hot hatches, going sideways in rallycross cars, being propelled forward in supercars and, more sensibly, standing in fields staring at classic cars. His first job was as a mechanic and then trained as a driving instructor before going into media production.

The automotive itch never left though, and he realized writing about cars is his true calling. However, that doesn’t stop him from also hosting the Both Hand Drive podcast.
