TWR Jaguars XJS: Walkinshaw's Coventry Express

As John Egan remarked to us at the Geneva Show, racing is part of Jaguar’s heritage. A carefully planned European Touring Car Championship programme brought the Coventry marque five outright successes last year, with engineering expertise and part of the budget coming direct from Jaguar, the build, development and race programme handled by the astute Scotsman, Tom Walkinshaw. Neither Renault...

A Star in the Ascendant

Those who have followed the FISA saga through the winter may be aware that President Jean-Marie Balestre was given a ringing vote of confidence at the special meetings in March, the news coming just too late for our April edition. He received the unanimous support of the FIA's General Assembly for his handling of the Senna and Le Mans affaires during the winter, and a majority of 90% in a FISA...

Motorfair

Motoring into Motorfair Naturally, the approach to the Autumn motor shows of Frankfurt and London Motorfair is littered with new car launches. We have been ruthless in our selection of cars, but we believe the following items on Jaguar, Vauxhall, Volkswagen, SAAB and BMW represent the most diversified of recent announcements in 1989 sports motoring. Undoubted star of these autumn shows was Opel-...

Interview: Price Cobb

In from the cold Tom Walkinshaw's most surprising recruit for last year's five-car Le Mans challenge was an American Porsche driver who was almost unknown in Europe. But Price Cobb returns for a second attempt as a fully-fledged Jaguar man now in the front line of TWR's IMSA Championship campaign. Last June Price Cobb was invited to drive a Silk Cut Jaguar at Le Mans, and it would have been only...

The money programme

"I thought: it's just as easy - or just as difficult - to get a lot of money as it is to get a little." With this profound objective, Alan Randall set out to find a major sponsor to fund his dream of breaking into the professional world of sports car racing. He found such a sponsor, lost him . . . and promptly found another! Who is this Walter Mitty? The question was asked everywhere he went,...

Autopolis 430 km

Plaudits all round Peter Sauber, nice man that he is, shed a few tears. Dr Hermann Hiereth, the man responsible for Mercedes racing engines, looked dumbstruck. The virus that had plagued and destroyed the flat-12 engines on an hourly basis since August just cleared up and went away, simple as that! Michael Schumacher and Karl Wendlinger drove the race that they and the C291 have long deserved and...

100 reasons why we love Aston Martin

There are certain companies that immedately conjure a British way of life. Aston Martin is one of those. Redolent of polished wood, the scent of leather, of pulling up at polo match or cricket pitch, it is a name recognised across the world. This year the company celebrates its centenary something which few of its early figureheads would have predicted. It's been a rocky100 years, an anxious...

Lunch with... David Brabham

Jack’s youngest son was supposed to be a farmer. Instead, he followed the ‘other’ family business and ploughed his own furrow, from F1 to sports cars We’ve noted before the potency of the motor-racing gene, the father-and-son successions such as the Hills and the Villeneuves, and dynasties from the Unsers to the Andrettis. More rarely, a name can mean not just a family but also a team, or a...

A green light...at last

A life support system has kept the Sportscar World Championship alive for another season, almost certainly its last. This time it was provided by the three major manufacturers actively involved Peugeot, Toyota and Mazda who each pledged $600,000 per entry to FISA's promotional fund "to indemnify the organisers against losses" as president Max Mosley eloquently summarised. Having sailed the ship...

Jaguar Plans

The effective career of Jaguar's stock-block, V12 powered Group C racing cars may now be on the wane, but the 1-2 victory at Le Mans has given a welcome boost to the Coventry firm's future competitions plans with Tom Walkinshaw Racing. The official statement is yet to come but Bill Hayden, Jaguar's new chairman and chief executive, gave a strong hint in the wake of the 24-hour success that the...
