World Sportscar Championship: Brands Hatch 1000kms

Lloyd does it again Last September Bob Wollek and Mauro Baldi won then first World Sportscar Championship race together, but there was no pleasure on their faces as they received the garlands at Spa; their Lancia had won a race shortened by the death of Stefan Bellof and celebrations were cancelled. At Brands Hatch in July there was nothing to mar the victory they achieved in the Liqui Moly...

World Sportscar Championship: Jerez 360 kms

Jaguar fiasco at Jerez Derek Warwick and Paul Frère have one thing in common: thirty years ago the talented Belgian dashed Jaguar's hopes at Le Mans by spinning his works D-type at the Esses and involving team-mate Jack Fairman, though on that occasion Ecurie Ecosse saved the day for the Coventry marque. At Jerez on August 3 Warwick made a dubious piece of history by having all three Silk Cut...

World Sportscar Championship: Spa 1000kms

Silk Cut Jaguar beaten by a length! To the delight of the Belgian crowd, but to the chagrin of the Silk Cut Jaguar team, Thierry Boutsen won the Spa 1,000 Kilometre race by a scant 0.8 seconds, both his Brun Porsche and Derek Warwick's XJR-6 spluttering on their last drops of fuel as they crossed the line nose-to-tail after five and a half hours of close combat. Excitement heightened as the last...

World Sportscar Championship -- Fuji 1000kms

Champions for two hours! For two hours it seemed that the Silk Cut Jaguar team, and Derek Warwick, had done the impossible. By finishing second in the Fuji 1,000 Kilometres race, final round of the 1986 World Sportscar Championship, they'd deprived Rothmans-Porsche, Derek Bell and Hans Stuck of their titles...or had they? Tom Walkinshaw looked concerned as Warwick was garlanded and interviewed,...

W.S.C

Jaguar ends Porsche success story It took Tom Walkinshaw's Silk Cut Jaguar team just seven races to end four years of Porsche domination in the World Sportscar Championship, and fittingly it was at Silverstone on May 5th that Derek Warwick and Eddie Cheever scored their well-deserved success. The white and mauve car ran perfectly for nearly five hours, at an average of 129.08 mph, to beat Word...
