Jenson Button To Race Jaguar XJR-9 At Le Mans Classic (Updated)

First race at Le Mans!

It seems that the earlier social media post on behalf of the Le Mans Classic was somewhat premature – at their request I am removing the story to avoid confusion.
More news if and when we get it.


After 24 hours that has seen significant news about Jaguar, and about Jenson Button, here’s a tale that draws both strands together as the 2009 Formula One World Champion will make his first ever start on the full Le Mans circuit later this year, but not in the 24 Hour classic.

Instead his debut will come at the wheel of a 1988 Jaguar XJR-9 in the Le Mans Classic Group C race (6-8 July), this just confirmed on the meeting’s Twitter feed.

More details as we get them…
