1986 race suit from French Silk Cut Jaguar team driver Jean-Louis Schlesser.

Estimate price: (e£600-700)

Made by “Road & Racing” in Nomex. Castrol and Dunlop logos on right shoulder. Silk Cut Jaguar text on chest and back. “Jean-Louis Schlesser” embroidered on left breast. Silk Cut at throat and Dunlop also on the epaulettes. Frenchman Schlesser was a superb driver who won the French Touring Car championship in 1985 driving a TWR Rover Vitesse. This led to a place in TWR’s Silk Cut Jaguar Group C team in the same year and for the 1986 season when his best drives were 4th at Brands Hatch and 5th at Spa. This suit shows some wear but is in Very Good condition. Unique.

D/116

A Silk Cut Jaguar paddock coat from the 1991 season.

Estimate price: (e£150-200)

This is a rare item produced for the additional team members supporting the Le Mans race that year. As this was a separate late order, it is a darker shade of purple than normally supplied and has the sponsors’ logos etc. stencilled on to the jacket rather than woven in or sewn on. There is a hood that rolls into the collar. Designed by Victoria Mockett of “Why Not” Ltd of London, it is made from the Swedish rip-stop Protech fabric. An authentic item of team clothing produced in very small numbers. It shows little signs of wear and is in VG near Fine condition

D/117

1988 season Jaguar Silk Cut crew overalls.

Estimate price: (e£100-150)

Logos for P&O sponsorship and the World Sportscar Championship date this set to 1988, when Jaguar won Le Mans again for the first time since 1957. A set of overalls worn in a truly historic season. Good to VG.

D/118

Jaguar pit crew oil-skin hooded jacket.

Estimate price: (e£100-125)

D/119

White rain-suit. Synthetic material.

Estimate price: (e£100-125)

No indication of maker or size, but it fits me OK and I’m 5’ 11”. Clean and rarely used. Slight discolouration on front zip. Season not confirmed but, P&O sponsorship could point to 1988 when Jaguar won Le Mans.

D/120

Tamiya 1:10 scale Jaguar XJR-12 Daytona 24 hr Castrol livery.

Estimate price: (e£80-100)

Two items of original artwork for an agency presentation seeking to win the Budweiser design contract after Anheuser-Bush Inc took over from Castrol as lead sponsor for the Jaguar racers running in the 1991 IMSA series in North America.

Estimate price: (e£75-95)

There are two black boards each with a scalpel-cut image of an XJR-10 in the suggested red livery. One shows the car in plan-view; the other a side-on view from the right. History records that this proposal did not succeed with the predominantly white “Bud Light” livery being adopted. Here lies the rarity value of these pieces as illustrations of the jockeying that goes on behind the scenes to secure and develop the sponsorship without which, there would be no racing. An unusual, important and probably unique slice of the history of Jaguar’s competitive achievements in North America. Fine. As a pair.

D/122

D/123
