Jackie Lewis forged his reputation in privately-owned Coopers, culminating in him winning the Formula 2 title in 1960. He entered Formula One as a privateer in 1961 and the season culminated in a fourth place at Monza in a race marred by a terrible accident which killed Ferrari driver Wolfgang von Trips and 15 spectators. That success earned him a drive for the Ecurie Galloise team in 1962 but he struggled and quit at the end of the season.
Initially he was reported to be taking a year out, but he found solace in sheep farming and never returned, although he kept a link with cars by running a garage in Stroud.
