TWR’s Le Mans-winning Jaguars
ABOUT THE BOOK
Tom Walkinshaw was a successful racing driver who parlayed his knowledge of top level race preparation and driving into a career as a team boss. He first of all steered BMW racecars to success, followed by Rover and Mazda, then lured Jaguar, recently privatised again from the clutches of BLMC, into the realm of World Class Endurance racing, resulting in wins at the Le Mans 24 Hour race and the Daytona 24 Hour race, and scooping the World Manufacturers’ Championship prize.
