The Jaguar is synonymous with motor racing success achieved with the flowing power and elegance of its namesake. In the mid-1950s, the sinuous C- and D-Types swept to victory in Le Mans with nonchalant ease. In the 1960s the Mk2 saloon dominated touring car racing. And Jaguar’s decision to enter the Formula One arena for the 2000 season marked a welcome return to the highest levels of motor sport. This book is a lavish celebration of an illustrious seven decades of competition history, from the swallow sidecar onwards. The company’s archives have been opened up to source rare, unpublished photographs and documents. And the great Jaguar drivers – from Jackie Stewart and Stirling Moss to Johnny Herbert and Eddie Irvine – have been interviewed about their experiences, as have the indispensable backroom boys.
