Jaguar XJR-9LM

Winner of Le Mans 24 Hours in 1988, the XJR-9LM was driven once again by racer Andy Wallace. He said, 'It’s wonderful to be here at the Coventry MotoFest celebrating 80 years of the Jaguar brand, and even more wonderful to be driving the car I won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 27 years ago. It seems just like yesterday actually, but every time you get back in the old girl it’s just a wonderful feeling. What an amazing racing car.'
