Tom Walkinshaw 1946-2010

Sad to hear the news that Tom Walkinshaw has passed away today. He gave an incredible amount to motor sport. His TWR team fielding Jaguar XJS's in the European Touring Car Championship in the early eighties before moving with Jaguar into the Group C endurance championship. Later on he was involved with the Benetton F1 team and then famously hired the reigning world champion Damon Hill to the Arrows team in 1997. Pictured here is one of the TWR Jaguars at the Brands Hatch 1000km in 1986.
