And finally, a word from Chris Amon
I have some great memories of Jack. Perhaps one that I best recall is the tussle we had for virtually the whole of the GP at Silverstone in 1967, during the course of which both his mirrors fell off, never quite sure if they fell off or he unscrewed them, he did seem to be fiddling with them a lot. He was truly spectacular to follow and had the ability to seemingly get as much traction on the grass as on the track, I managed that day to get past him at Woodcote with one lap to go to take third place, in most of our close races I seem to recall he usually came out on top.
I remember his last race, 1970 Mexico. I think he had qualified well but had a bad start. Denny and I were having a battle for something like third when Jack came steaming up behind and almost passed us as though we weren’t there. I think his engine blew shortly after but his pace belied his years that day as it often did in that, his last season.
