JaguarRSR LE MANS 24 HOURS UPDATE

 Le Mans, France (June 12, 2010) - Le Mans marked Jaguar's return to motorsport. This was the much anticipated fourth race for the RSR team. We would like to thank the ACO and have been delighted with the support we have had from the public and the media.

During this week's development period we faced constant engine management issues that unfortunately we were unable to resolve satisfactorily which forced us to retire from the race in the early stages.

We look forward to the remainder of the ALMS season and the next race in Salt Lake City.

JaguarRSR's FIRST TAKE FROM LE MANS

 Le Mans, France (June 9, 2010) - JaguarRSR had its first chance to run at Le Mans today fighting issues from the start, but ended the evening late with the #81 JaguarRSR XKR GT2 getting more situated for what the team hopes a strong performance tomorrow.

As the car was pulled out of the #9 garage and into its pit box this evening for the free practice session, JaguarRSR Principal Partner and co-drive Paul Gentilozzi was behind the wheel ready to turn the first laps in the XKR racer. But a clutch problem changed the plan and put the car back into the garage for investigation. Once that was sorted out, it was Scottish driver Ryan Dalziel who got into the cockpit and logged the first laps at Le Mans in Jaguar's return.

LAP AROUND MAZDA RACEWAY LAGUNA SECA by Ryan Dalziel

 Starting your lap - Your first time climbing up the steep start finish straight, cresting the top of the hill and pulling top gear is awesome. The car gets light and the track on the other side is completely blind till you land on the downside of the hill. You have to use the pedestrian bridge across the track at the top as a reference for where to position the car cresting the hill, something that is very important as we drive around the rest of Laguna Seca Raceway.
