Jack Sears (16 February 1930 – 7 August 2016) was a British race and rally driver, and was one of the principal organisers of the 1968.
Sears was popularly known as “Gentleman Jack”. His son David is also involved in motorsport. He won the inaugural British Saloon Car Championship in 1958, driving an Austin Westminster. After finishing on joint maximum points with Tommy Sopwith, it was initially suggested the champion would be decided by the toss of a coin. The idea was very unpopular with both drivers and at the final meeting at Brands Hatch, with a draw being a likely possibility, two identical looking Marcus Chambers-owned Riley One-Point-Five works rally cars were brought along for a five lap shoot-out. To make the race fair, they raced five laps, switched cars, then raced five laps again with the driver who had the quickest combined time being crowned champion. In pouring rain, Sears became the first ever champion by 1.6 seconds.
Oulton ParkOne of the first race meetings at Croft was the Daily Mirror Trophy. Celebrity driver Jacks Sears was entered, driving his usual Willment Team Cobra, but when the car was started, it was found to have a broken rocker and damaged pushrod. However, Jack’s mechanic, Mike Brown, cannibalised the required parts from the Mustang of BRSCC secretary Nick Syrett. The work meant that Sears could not take part in practice so Ropner offered his Cobra to allow Sears to qualify, despite such a move contravening the rules. The stewards could not be deceived since the cars were a different colour, as the Clerk of the Course confirmed, but when subjected to Ropner’s persuasive techniques, he decided he ‘was colour blind’. Sears practiced in 6008, and went on to win the race in his Willment Cobra.
Jack Sears was re-inited with COB6008 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2009.
