Jaguar's Racing History (GALLERY)

Jaguar is synonymous with British racing prestige, dating back to Stirling Moss' 1950s heyday.

The car manufacturer enjoyed great success at Le Mans in the 50s - totalling five wins in seven years.

It moved into the Formula 1 mainstream when Ford bought Jackie Stewart's team in 1999, as Jaguar Racing's first Grand Prix came at Australian in 2000.

Their best result came thanks to maverick racer Eddie Irvine, who finished third at the 2001 Monaco GP and the same podium place at the 2002 Italian GP.
