The hardest race of Martin Brundle’s career – the 1988 Daytona 24 Hours

Jaguar was far from among the favourites when it pitched up at the Daytona 24 Hours in January 1988 with the new XJR-9. Tom Walkinshaw Racing might have just taken over as the British marque's representative in the IMSA GT Championship but it had yet to notch up a result better than fifth in two years over in the other 24-hour over at Le Mans. What's more, the team running its three-car assault in the Florida enduro hadn't even existed four months beforehand.
