The Scream that got the Cat

Does the sound of the Shrill rotary engine haunt Tom Walkinshaw? Mazda's 1991 defeat of the overweight Jaguars and fragile Sauber-Mercedes was a classic.

Endangered species

The risk of dusting off this irreplaceable Le Mans winner for a 20th anniversary test run terrified the men at Mazda. But their fear couldn’t quench the fun for our lucky driver By Sam Hancock If I tell you not to think of an elephant, what do you do? If I then repeat myself and suggest – this time more sternly – that you really ought not to think of a giant grey elephant with its long trunk,...

Formula 3000

A bang and a whimper The European Formula 3000 Championship concluded with both a bang and a whimper.

Home win With three consecutive victories to its credit, the Silk Cut Jaguar team went to Silverstone determined to repeat last year's maiden success, but a little afraid too that its luck might run out on home ground. The outcome, though, was a comprehensive whitewash of the works Porsche team, and Jaguar's first 1-2 result in Group C. Eddie Cheever and Raul Boesel beat Jan Lammers and John...

Finishing on a High Note

Jaguar finished the 1987 World Sports Prototype Championship with a splendid one-two victory at Fuji, following up the double success at Spa-Francorchamps two weeks previously.

World Sportscar Championship: Le Mans 24-hrs
