Jaguar and Andy Wallace Wows the Crowd at Le Mans Classic
Andy Wallace, Le Mans winner outright for Jaguar in 1988, was on the podium again at the famous circuit this weekend as a record grid of 65 pre-1966 racing Jaguars took part in the Le Mans Classic round of the Jaguar Classic Challenge.
Wallace, whose ’88-winning XJR-9 wowed the crowds during the 100-strong Jaguar parade lap which preceded the race, finished third overall in the Jaguar Classic Challenge and won his class racing a 1955 D-type. Julian Thomas won the race outright in his 1962 low-drag E-type.
Also part of the 100-strong parade before the race were Jaguar’s one-off Le Mans prototype, XJ13, and a dozen examples of its latest and fastest production car, the 575PS, 200mph F-TYPE SVR created by Jaguar’s Special Operations division.
