World Sportscar Championship

Sandown Park 360kms Southern stars One defeat doesn't end a war, but the Silk Cut Jaguar team went down badly at Sandown Park, Melbourne on November 20, trounced by AEG Sauber Mercedes. The two dark blue cars crossed the line five seconds apart at the end of the 360 kilometre 'sprint' event, with the Martin Brundle/Eddie Cheever XJR close to being lapped, and Jan Lammers/Johnny Dumfries one lap...

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...

Production plot

The Aston Martin DB7 will be built as a follow-on to the Jaguar XJ220 in a converted mill at Bloxham, near Banbury in Oxfordshire. Of the 125 people employed there today, about 100 are directly involved with the XJ220 and this number is likely to be increased in 1994, when production of the DB7 is raised towards a maximum of 13 per working week. As with the XJ220, though, Bloxham is an assembly...

World Sportscar Championship: Nurburgring 1000kms

Sauber makes Jaguar wait The AEG Sauber-Mercedes driven by Jean-Louis Schlesser and Jochen Mass took an excellent victory at the Nurburgring on the first weekend in September, leaving Martin Brundle and Eddie Cheever in second place in their Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-9. But it was still almost a formality for the British team to win the World Sports-Prototype Championship for the second year in...

Musical Chairs

In the 1950s it was quite common for a Grand Prix car to be handed over to the team leader midway through a race so he could collect a higher quota of points, but the FIA sensibly put a stop to the practice, not least because it was thoroughly confusing for the spectators. Working the system came back into fashion in the 1970s, when Georg Loos and the Kremer brothers were locked in combat for...

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...
