This is the sixth Le Mans title in our series and brings the story of these epic races up into the '90s and covers the interesting period when Porsche had to share the honours with Jaguar, Mazda and Suber/Mercedes.

Descriptions of great motor races often have a national bias - or at the very least, a national flavour - and for this reason we have tried to provide accounts from more than one country and articles are included from: Autocar, Autosport, Motor, Motor Sport and Road & Track.

Contents include: 'Le Mans: Predictable but interesting', 'Last hour agonies', 'May the best Porsche win....', 'Le Mans: Privates for promotion', 'The signs were right', 'Mercedes power back at Le Mans', 'Fast and frugal', 'Top cats', 'Porsche's pyrrhic victory', 'It was 30 years ago today....', 'Jaguar bid fails', 'Runners and riders', 'Jaguar takes its glittering prize', 'Equipes et Pilotes', 'Starlight express', 'Jaguar one-two bids Egan farewell', 'Tradition in transition', 'Mazda's victory charge', 'Le Mans 1991, the year of the Rotary'.
