Lister Jaguar

This car competed in the Historic Car Championship Race at the Aston Martin Owners Club's Autumn Historic Car Races meeting at Oulton Park in September 1992.
It's Steve O'Rourke's 1959 Lister Jaguar. The original TUN 708 was written off in an accident and the remains were used to re-create this replica.

Steve O'Rourke was the manager of Pink Floyd and combined this with his motor racing activities, competing in the Le Mans 24 Hour race on several occasions and finishing in fourth place in 1998 in a McLaren F1 GTR partnered by Tim Sugden and Bill Auberlen. Sadly he died in Miami in 2003 after suffering a stroke.
