Overview

Jaguar at Le Mans: Every Race, Car and Driver, 1950-1995 by Paul Park

This lavishly illustrated volume, published to commemorate Jaguar's first win at Le Mans, captures the elation and heartbreak of the marque's thrilling battles in the endurance classic. The early years are fully illustrated with a collection of rarely seen photographs by Rudy Mailander, a number of them published here for the first time. Filled with personal anecdotes from drivers, designers, team personnel, observers, and photographers of the period, plus coverage of the cars and what became of them. Includes fully annotated results of every Jaguar entry at Le Mans, including the Cooper, Lister and Tojeiro variants. Also contains brief biographies of all drivers and key Jaguar personnel. Recommended.
