Truly an amazing man.  Only man ever to win a world championship in a car he designed and built himself.

REST IN PEACE SIR JACK. This man was beyond a legend. I was lucky enough to briefly meet him and shake his hand. Saw him flying though the Adelaide hills during the Classic Adelaide event, even getting the tail out on one very high speed corner. I think he was 77 at the time.

yep, RIP

Massive inspiration... to go from mechanic, to be engineer, designer, builder and driver of your own car and win a hotly contested and very dangerous era world championship.... Immortality, in my book.

Very lucky to have chanced upon him in a quiet little café at Phillip island once, and I had mum and dad and my wife and kids with me, we had a little chat with him, managed to convey our huge respect and admiration, which he humbly accepted and appreciated.

I hope Shannons Nats do something small this weekend, maybe a sticker on all cars or a minutes silence before one of the races.

Very sad, but what a life he lived.  One of the few world champions to have died of old age.

Yes, a very sad loss - a true legend. You have a great story to tell about your encounter with Sir Jack earlier in the year.
