1988 Le Mans winner runs on the streets
21 July 2009

The 1988 Le Mans-winning Jaguar XJR-9LM took to the streets of Bradford last weekend.

The local authorities gave permission for the iconic car to run as part of the Bradford Classic Car show, and it led a fleet of Jaguars into the city's Centenary Square.

Around 25,000 people are estimated to have watched as the 7.0-litre V12-powered car drive through the city centre.

The show also included exhibits by local manufacturers Ginetta and the Jowett car company, which is most famous for its Jupiter model (owned by stars including actor Peter Ustinov and F1 world champion John Surtees) and was based in Bradford until 1954.
