Jaguar's victory at the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1953 would be its second in a C-type. This painting depicts the winning C-type, driven by Tony Rolt and Duncan Hamilton, at 'Indianapolis' - the sweeping curves on the return part of the circuit. This car covered a record distance (2,540.3 miles) at an record average speed (108.85 mph) thus becoming the first to win this event at an average in excess of 100mph.
