Jim Clark Inspired A Generation
Jim Clark was Formula 1 World Champion in 1963 and 1965 and won the Indianapolis 500 in the same year. He claimed pole position in 33 of his 72 starts and 25 Grand Prix victories, a remarkable record that ranks him as one of the greatest ever motor sport drivers. He remains the only driver to win the Formula 1 Championship and Indianapolis 500 in the same year.
Even to this day, he is considered one of the greatest motor racing drivers of all time, admired not only for his incredible natural talent and success, but in equal measure for his modest character, integrity, humour and sportsmanship. Whilst nearly invincible in a race car he appeared vulnerable and a hesitant hero to millions of fans around the world. Jim Clark was a shy farmer at heart from the small rural village of Chirnside, Duns in the Scottish Borders.
He died tragically in a Formula 2 race at a wet Hockenheim in 1968. The sport was shocked by the death of its shining star and in tragic circumstances helped redefine the future of motor sport with a greater emphasis on safety led by his close friend and The Jim Clark Trust’s Hon. President Sir Jackie Stewart.
The Jim Clark Trust
The Jim Clark Trust is dedicated to celebrating the story of Jim Clark with plans for a new £1.6m Jim Clark Museum in his home town of Duns in the Scottish Borders. Our charitable aims are focused on Heritage, Education and Inspiration. 2018 marks a significant year for the Trust being the 50th anniversary of 1968.
Plans for the new museum include expanding the current collection of over 100 historic trophies and memorabilia donated by the Clark family with new displays, archive film and imagery, interactive exhibitions and showcasing some of the incredible race cars in which he competed.
We hope you will come and visit the new museum scheduled to open in summer 2019 set in the quiet beauty of the Scottish Borders, reflecting the contrasting worlds of Jim Clark’s life as a farmer with the glitz and glamour of a motor racing legend.
Our plans for the future include an extension to increase the number of race cars on display with a small collection of rare historic and modern race cars to promote his remarkable story, to inspire future generations.
