JAGUAR XJR-5 LM n.44

HISTORY

The Jaguar XJR-5 LM n.44 is a prototype that competed at the Le Mans 24 Hours of 1985. After the last victory of 1957 with the Jaguar D-Type, the Coventry manufacturer entrusted a project for a new return to Le Mans, to the Group 44 Racing which was based in Virginia.

The designer Lee Dykstra was commissioned to build the new prototype, starting from the powerful English V12 and creating a chassis that exploits the aerodynamic principles of the underbody.

Claude Ballot-Lena, Bob Tullius and Chip Robinson at the wheel of the Jaguar XJR-5 LM n.44 arrived thirteenth at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1985. Despite the modifications to lighten the car, the XJR-5 proved to be very far from the C-class deployed for the race. The trio consoled themselves with the victory in the IMSA GTP class, with a gap of fifty laps from the Porsche 956B n.7 of Ludwig, Barilla and Winter deployed by the Joest Racing team winners of the race.

Despite the victory in the IMSA GTP class, the British manufacturer, determined to win Le Mans, entrusted the official support to Tom Walkinshaw Racing by removing it from the Group 44 Racing
