Description

There were times when Jaguar were the ultimate winning machine at Le Mans. Jaguar D-Type had 5 wins out of 7 Le Mans entries but this story came to its natural end after season 1957 when the D-Type became obsolete. 30 years fast forward, Jaguar entered endurance racing again. They created a batch of XJR racers and some of them became victorious. Our Pete Dials is telling this very story with epic Jaguar XJR-9 LM poster.

Jaguar XJR-9 Le Mans

This Jaguar XJR-9 LM poster is telling an epic comeback story

Jaguar XJR-9 debuted in 1988 at the 24 Hours of Daytona and took the overall win. It was raced both as IMSA racer and as endurance prototype. The XJR-9 was able to take six victories, including 24 Hours of Le Mans over the eleven race series. Silk Cut Jaguar won the Teams Championship and Martin Brundle won the drivers title. Its success at Le Mans marked the first time since 1980 that Porsche had not won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the first Jaguar`s victory since 1957.

The engine of the prototype was derived from the stock Jag`s V12 although with raised displacement to 7 liters. Jaguar raced five cars in total in the 1988 Le Mans competition. All of them were on top when the first car retired with transmission issues after 8 hours of racing. Eleven more hours and the one more of Silk Cut Jags was forced to retire after a head gasket failure. Jan Lammers led the race with one of the three surviving Jaguars when a transmission failure almost forced him out. Luckily, he noticed this at the right time and continued to race on 4th gear to complete the race couple of minutes ahead of the fastest Porsche. If Lammers had changed the gear just once, the transmission would have died and will prevent Jaguar from their sixth 24 Hours of Le Mans title. Great job for Jan Lammers who drove the winning Jaguar XJR-9 LM together with Andy Wallace and John Dumfries.

Now you can feel the spirit of the Le Mans title with this beautiful Jaguar XJR-9 LM poster, beautifully created by Peter Dials and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.
