Jamiroquai ace ready for to Race Retro

26th January 2012

Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay will no doubt be checking the tyres on his Porsche 914-6 as he prepares the car to compete in this year's Race Retro event.

Rally legend Bjorn Waldergard will be competing in the car with mechanics ready on hand to replace tyres throughout the rally event, which promises to be a memorable one.

Brake pads are likely to be tested as Waldergard races against Ake Andersson and Gerard Larrousse in what is a star-studded line-up for the rally event.

Meanwhile, Jay Kay will undoubtedly be nervously watching the event, hoping that his precious Porsche comes through the rally unscathed.

The Jamiroquai singer is a notorious petrol head, with a collection of over 37 rare classic and luxury supercars.

He is also set to take part himself, after previously highlighting his driving skills on the BBC programme Top Gear, where he topped the show's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

With Waldergard's race set for Saturday February 25th with Jay Kay's event on Sunday February 26th, ensuring the Porsche 914-6 has plenty of spare new tyres will be crucial.
