Sir John Egan is widely credited with saving Jaguar during the 1980s. He trained as a petroleum engineer at the Imperial College London and worked for Shell in the Middle East before joining AC Delco. He joined British Leyland in 1971 and brought together the company’s parts under the single Unipart brand. Sir John was chief executive and chairman of Jaguar Cars from 1980 to 1990 and during that time, invested heavily in motorsport, won Le Mans with TWR, separated Jaguar from British Leyland and launched the XJ40 before the business , despite his protests, was sold to Ford. When he took over, Jaguar was facing losses of £50million a year and so he set about improving the quality of the processes within the plants, starting with Browns Lane. Recorded live at the Summer Jaguar Festival, we interview Sir John Egan in front of a live audience to gain an insight into this amazing part of Jaguar's history. Plus, we induct another motor racing hero into our Hall of Fame, this week it is Carlos Reutemann, who sadly passed away last week. Tom Robinson explains how he got on at Castle Combe with Matthew Davis joining him to share the race from his viewpoint as well.
