Jaguar, in their first full season back in sports car racing in 29 years, is looking for their first win. Will they be able to do it at home, at the Silverstone circuit in the midlands of England? Will they be able to beat their rivals from Stuttgart, in Germany, Porsche? 29 years after their last World Sports Car victory, Jaguar take on Porsche and Lancia at their home circuit of Silverstone. Britain’s round of the 1986 World Sports Car Championship for teams and drivers proved to be the day on which the mighty German and Italian factory teams were chased off by the Silk Cats. May the 5th will be a day that’s long remembered in sports car racing.
Lets send you now, to the man who will call this memorable race, Paul Fowler.
