The car is mentioned in the book "Jaguar D Type & XKSS" by Graham Robson as one of "works team cars '56 "XKD601-XKD606. All with full width appendix C screens and anti roll bar. All these cars are mechanically similar to '55 works car, some had fuel injection. XKD603 and 606 sold to Ecurie Ecosse for '57 to be semi works team cars along with '55, XKD504.

XKD601, with fuel-injection engine, was entered in the 1956 Sebring 12 Hours by the factory, but painted white/blue stripes and run alongside the other three Cunningham D-Types. Hawthorn /Titterington #8 finished fourth. Returned to the UK after that and re-painted BRG.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
