As luck would have it, disaster struck when the front suspension failed, forcing Jens Winther to retire once again. It was Jens Winther racing’s first and last BMW M1 entry at the 24h Le Mans race.
In 1985 Jens competed in C2 class and things were looking bright until the engine blew during the night stint. In 1986 the Danish team made history, becoming the first Danish team to finishing Le Mans, ending 11th overall and taking second place in the C2 category. This was last international race of Jens Winther’s racing career.
