Though it is fifty years since he gained his two Formula 1 WorldChampionship titles, the interest in Jim Clark has not waned. The Scotsman is still regarded as one of the best Grand Prix drivers ever. Even during his first motor races on old airfields in Scotland, Clark’s incredible skill behind the wheel was already evident and, from then on, his professional career only took an upward turn. Just four years after his first motor race, Clark climbed onto the podium at Le Mans and made his Formula 1 debut driving a Lotus. In the decade that followed, Clark and his mentor, Colin Chapman, conquered the very pinnacles of single-seater racing with Clark winning the F1 World Championship and the Indy 500.

This 400-page book from McKlein does not just tell the story of Clark’s racing career, it also portrays his personal life from A to Z. Author Graham Gauld followed the career of the Scotsman right from its very beginning. For this book, he has replayed his old audio tapes and selected his best photographs from those days. In addition to that, this lavishly illustrated book contains many rare images from well-known archives thus helping to complete an intimate portrait of a true sporting champion.
