Le Mans heroes reunited with their winning Jaguar
after 24 years ( 11 juni 2012)

Andy Wallace, Jan Lammers and Johnny Dumfries,

The trio celebrated for putting Jaguar back on top of the
world by bringing it a much-vaunted win at a Le Mans in 1988
was recently reunited for the first time with the XJR-9LM
in which they scorched to victory.

Johnny Dumfries, Andy Wallace and Jan Lammers met as
JD Classics held the second of the three Breakfast Mornings it
has planned for this year.

The event – attended by some 600 enthusiasts who took
advantage of a question and answer session with the endurance
racing heroes – also marked the opening of two new showrooms
at the Essex Jaguar specialist's HQ.

Johnny Dumfries said: "It was fantastic to reunite with
Andy and Jan
and see the XJR-9LM once again; that brought back a lot of
memories for us all! To be able to tell our stories to such a
passionate motoring audience was fantastic.”??

JD Classics boss Derek Hood added: “We were fortunate to
have one of Jaguar’s most iconic figures, former Test Driver
Norman Dewis join us at the last Breakfast Morning. We were
equally lucky to be able to host the 1988 Le Mans-winning
Jaguar team – Johnny Dumfries, Andy Wallace and
Jan Lammers – and their victorious XJR-9LM car here at
JD Classics on Sunday.

"It was very pleasing to see motoring enthusiasts turning up in
such large numbers to see our two new showrooms and to listen
to what Johnny, Andy and Jan had to say. I am already looking
forward to welcoming classic car fans to our next breakfast in
the Autumn.”
