Jack Sears (English, 1930 –2016) was a British race and rally driver popularly known as ‘Gentleman Jack’ due to his erudite charm and never-less-than immaculate appearance. Winner of the inaugural British Saloon Car Championship in 1958, Sears raced A.C. Cobras for the Willment racing team along with fellow driver Frank Gardner. This painting executed in 2010 depicts Sears racing chassis no. CS2131, also known as registration 39PH – the first and only A.C Cobra ever to win Le Mans – at Brands Hatch circuit in 1964.
