Group C 1100BHP Pole Position Lap 1990 Le Mans - Blundell Nissan R90CK
Blundell on his lap - "Every input was pure reflex -- things were coming at
me everywhere I looked. For about 50 percent of the lap I felt like I was
on the verge of a massive accident." -- Absolutely amazing story
Does Blundell write for any magazines? If he doesn't, he should. In EVO
Magazine issue 157 he writes about his experience at Le Mans in 1990 with
the Nissan R90CK which was a V8 and twin turbocharged and made over what 1,100bhp!
He establishes his route to Le Mans that year and gave a real sense of what
that week was like for him and the Nissan team and when everything seemed
to be going wrong.

• One of only two purpose-built IMSA specification XJR-9s constructed,

it's also the sole remaining XJR-9 in IMSA specification.
• 2015 marks 25th anniversary of this actual car’s historic 1990
Daytona 24 hour victory in the hands of Jones/Lammers/Wallace
#388 is the third of just three cars constructed for the 1988 IMSA GT
Championship, run by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR), and one of only two
chassis ever manufactured as purpose-built IMSA specification cars.
Prior to its most famous victory in 1990, #388 enjoyed two highly
successful seasons in 1988 and 1989. In 1988, predominantly in the hands of
Davey Jones and Jan Lammers, the car achieved four podium finishes and
never finished a race outside of the top seven, a superb achievement that
helped the Jaguar team secure third place in the IMSA constructor’s
championship, stamping its authority in Group C racing.
During the 1989 season, #388 was an equally strong contender, achieving
three front-row starts including a pole position, four second-row starts
and eight overall podium finishes. The ‘89 season saw Price Cobb and John
Nielsen join the car’s driver roster, leading it to a remarkable record
that saw it finish on the podium for two-thirds of all the races it
By the start of 1990 season, #388 was fully developed into XJR-12
specification and went on to famously win the season’s headline event,
the 24 hours of Daytona, in the hands of Davey Jones, Jan Lammers and Andy
Wallace. The victory was an unquestionable high point in Jaguar’s
illustrious endurance racing history, especially after having finished
second overall at Daytona in 1989. It also secured a podium finish at
Sebring in 1990.
Max Girardo, Managing Director, RM Auctions Europe, says of the car: “It
is a true work of art that effortlessly blends great design and engineering
with incredible performance. The lines are fantastic—it appears fast even
when standing still—and then there’s the massive V-12 engine that can
help propel it to a blistering 240 mph. Despite all this, it is not an
intimidating car. Having driven it recently, I can attest that it is a
delight to drive and easy to handle.”
