Victory by the Wallace/Lammers/Dumfries Jaguar, in 1988, put the Big Cat back atop Le Mans after a 31-year absence and stopped a seven-year Porsche win streak.
Englishman Andy Wallace is one of only eight drivers ever to post at least one victory in each of endurance racing’s Big Three signature events, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the Rolex 24 at Daytona. He is also one of just two to do that and add in a Petit Le Mans triumph as well. Wallace, whose career continues today, is generally known as a sports car racer, but he made his first major mark by winning the prestigious British Formula 3 championship in 1986.
