Best of three?

In 1955 the Jaguar D-type, Ferrari 750 Monza and Aston Martin DB3S all contested the Goodwood Nine Hours. But which is best? It’s a tough choiceBy Andrew Frankel As the crowds arrived at Goodwood on August 20, 1955 for the Nine Hours endurance race, few if any of the fans knew that it would be the last long-distance, day into night race held at their beloved track – at least, until the circuit’s...

Lunch with… Norman Dewis

During 33 years and more than a quarter of a million 100mph miles, Norman Dewis was a dedicated team player who helped make Jaguar great By Simon Taylor Marque loyalty is an old-fashioned concept these days. A driver will swap seats after a season or two, a designer will change teams, an engineer or technician will quietly ask around to tease out available opportunities. Everyone's looking to...

The hero's return

This is the actual Jaguar XJR-9 that won Le Mans in 1988, the greatest sports car victory of the modern era. Andrew Frankel takes it back for one final fling. This, it should be said, was one of the bigger gambles. When this Jaguar XJR-9LM, chassis number 488, won Le Mans in 1988, it was the greatest triumph in sportscar racing enjoyed by a British car since Jaguar first won this race back in...

Following in the wheel tracks of Franco Cortese, Motor Sport tackled the 2006 Mille Miglia in a C-type Words: Tim Watson. Photography: Tom Horsfall It's a warm spring evening in Northern Italy. Through the tiny bug-splattered Perspex windscreen of the Jaguar C-type I can just see the road ahead as it unfurls in an arrow-straight line flanked by tall poplars.

The successor and the successful

We knew the chaps from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust had arrived some time before we saw them. The straight six bark of a D-type is not easy to mistake, even when there are two of them travelling in convoy. Appropriately, the two Ds had not arrived at MIRA on a transporter but had been driven up by road, their legs, apparently, looking forward to a bit of a stretch. This would be remarkable...

They're back and this time it's serious

Jaguar might have concentrated on sports and saloon car racing in the past but now it want just one thing: to reach the very top of Motor Racing. Mark Hughes meets those who took Jaguar to goly in the past and assesses its chanced in the harsh world of Formula One On this, the eve of Jaguar's Third Coming, there might seem to be little of much relevance in its sports car programmes of the 1950s...

Jaguar XJR-9 LM & Porsche 962

Circuit: Silverstone Date: 21.11.06 Andrew Frankel reunites – and drives – the Jaguar and Porsche that battled for honours at Le Mans in ’88 What was the greatest moment in sports car racing? Some might well say Pedro Rodríguez’s win in the ’71 Österreichring 1000Km was unassailable for its sheer spectacle, other’s that the Hermann-Ickx battle for victory at Le Mans in 1969 is where the clock...
