Jim Clark had yet to etch his name on the broader racing conscience by the spring of 1959, but four victories in one afternoon were a hint of greatness to comeWriter: Richard Williams Its paintwork so dark that on a murky day the green could have been taken for black, the big Lister-Jaguar appeared to flex its shoulders as it powered through the downhill left-hand kink before the pit straight....

Lunch with... SIR JOHN WHITMORE

Lunch with SIR JOHN WHITMORE In more ways than one, Sir John Whitmore is different. Since this monthly series began in Motor Sport six years ago I've been lucky enough to take some 80 motor sporting personalities to lunch, and I don't think any of them has had so short a racing career. Probably none has had so strange a life since walking away from the sport, either. But John makes a worthy and...

"He was everyone's hero wasn't he?"

It was his character as much as his skill behind the wheel that made Jim Clark the drivers' driver By Nigel Roebuck I was at Brands Hatch when I heard about Jimmy.

Jim Clark – March 4 1936 to April 7 1968

The hamlets of Chirnside and Duns nestle into the mellow countryside of Scotland's Border region, mere miles from the northernmost boundary of England. The homesteads have names such as Mill Farm, West Fouldron, New Mains. Or Jim Clark's Edington Mains. This was the haven from which the reluctant racer sallied forth on his forays to the far reaches of the motorsport world - to Zandvoort, Warwick...

History in the remaking

Jim Clark’s Indy-winning Lotus 38 will run at Goodwood in July following a meticulous rebuild by Classic Team Lotus. It’s a job ‘the boys’ relished…By Gordon Cruickshank I just want a picture of the boys.” Hazel Chapman, Colin’s widow, lifts her camera and ‘the boys’ stop talking. Boys. Their bus passes are dog-eared now, but they were lads when they built the machine in front of us. It was 1965...

Jimmy

By Jackie Stewart I first met him when he stopped at my father's garage. I was about 19. He was driving a TR2 or 3 — I can't remember which — but he was on his way back from the Rest-and-be-Thankful hilIclimb. He was dressed the same way as he was when he was going racing, which was usually a pair of flannels with a round-neck sweater, and a collar and tie. We lived in a bungalow, which was...
