Now an almost forgotten figure in motor racing, Jack Lewis showed plenty of natural talent but perhaps not the necessary resilience to overcome the setbacks that are a part of any sport.

In 1958 he purchased the ex-Bueb F3 Cooper and won three races in his first season, which encouraged him to move into Formula 2 in 1959 with a Cooper. Despite setting the fastest practice time for the Pau GP (ahead of Brabham and Trintignant) and taking third in the Aintree 200, Lewis was frustrated by organisers' general reluctance to accept his entry, and returned to the tracks in 1960 well prepared to prove himself a serious competitor. He did just that, winning the Autocar F2 British championship, as well as races at Chimay and Montlhery.

For 1961 he set out on the Grand Prix trail with a Cooper, setting 12th-fastest practice time on his debut at Spa, and fighting off Tony Brooks' late challenge to take fourth place in the Italian GP. Given 'grade A driver' status, Lewis then bought a BRM 48/57 for 1962, which he took to third in the Pau GP, but he failed to qualify at Monaco and was so dissatisfied with the car that it was returned to the factory.

Back in his Cooper, Lewis seemed to lose heart, feeling his reputation had suffered after the BRM episode, and it was a despondent Welshman who slipped into retirement at the age of just 27.
