He was long gone before I was old enough to attend my first U.S. Grand Prix, and I always regretted not being able to see Jim Clark drive. One of the things that you just had to like and admire about Jim, was his competitiveness in all forms of motorspots, and the fact he could win anytime that he got behind a wheel.
Incidentally has anybody on here been to the Jim Clark museum? It's on my to-do list and I'll be in Dumfrieshire this summer, so not too far and a chance to stop by on my way. Anybody knows what to expect?
I've been to the Jim Clark museum Incubus
It's quite small but free to enter, there's some personal looking photographs, we watched a short film and there's some interesting memorabelia. All in one room so not the V&A!
If you walk around the village there's mementos to him like the clock with the racing car, the locals are quite rightly proud of him.
We also visited his grave which had plenty of flowers and messages on it and I personally found it quite humbling.
