Driving the X-type on the track.
2003 X-type 3.0 auto.
My first time drive on An-san circuit in South Korea.
This is the 3rd and 4th lap.
5 laps were done today.
Next time I hope I do better.
BTW, This was not a competition event.
Some abnormal clunking at 2nd gear during the 4th lap, I gave it a short rest with relaxed driving and it recovered to normal soon.
I tried to avoid abusing the gearbox.
J-gate did its job well.
Jaguar X-Type Montage
I had been looking for a Jaguar demo video to run on the in-car DVD player of my own X-Type. Since I couldn't find anything, I put together this photo montage instead.
Crash Test 2001 - 2009 (Discontinued) Jaguar X Type (Frontal Offset) IIHS
2002-08 models mfg. after Dec. 2001
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Acceptable Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Jaguar X-Type was introduced in the 2002 model year. All 2002 and later X-Type models manufactured after December 2001 include structural modifications to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door).
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of an X-Type with the structural changes in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail and A-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest and right leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Head accelerations from the roof rail/A-pillar hits were low.
