Known as "The Flying Scot", the former racing driver from Scotland is seen by many as the first truly modern professional racing driver. Jackie has done more than any man before or since to build a business life on the basis of his on-track record. Translating his legendary eye for detail from cockpit to boardroom, he has shared with the automotive industry the rich fruits of his racing experience.

Jackie's early involvement with cars was in the family business, Dumbuck Garage, in Milton, where he worked as an apprentice mechanic. When he began racing saloons and sports cars he quickly showed outstanding talent that prompted team entrant Ken Tyrrell to hire him to contest the 1963 British Formula Three series, in which the speedy Scot won seven races in a row.

His career took off internationally, when he partnered Graham Hill in the BRM team. When Ken Tyrrell decided to go Formula One racing, Stewart teamed up with him to form what would become one the most productive Formula One partnerships. In his six seasons with Tyrrell, Stewart was nearly always the driver to beat and remained so until he retired at the age of 34. His 27 race wins and three championships made him the best since Juan Manuel Fangio, but the mark he made on the sport went much further than the record books.

The charismatic and brilliantly articulate "Wee Scot" is a much sought after media personality and a compelling TV commentator, explaining the intricacies of the sport and tirelessly promoting it. He also frequented the corporate boardrooms of big business and became a multi-millionaire long before he hung up his helmet. He starred in TV commercials and advertising campaigns, gave speeches, went on worldwide promotional tours and had offices in London, New York and Switzerland. His willingness to look beyond the confines of traditional racing relationships is also the hallmark of Jackie's contribution to all these enterprises.
