Jim Clark

Post by PTRACER » 13 years ago

It's the 38th anniversary of Jim Clark's tragic and untimely death today. I regard Jimmy as one of the best motor racing drivers ever. Definitely is one of my favourites. :wave:

RIP. :(

Alongside Senna, Clark is my favourite racing driver. I'm pretty sure he would have dominated F1 1968 onwards and could have equalled Fangio's 5 titles come 1970. But it wasn't to be....

Rest in Peace Jimmy :sorrow:

he was F1's most dominant driver in an era that included drivers such as Brabham, Surtees, Graham Hill and Dan Gurney. He is definantly one of the greatest drivers of all time.
Rest in peace Jimmy

Thanks you for these pictures. A sad memory. :sorrow: Do you still have that picture off Jimmy at Zandy in 1967 where he's going down into Hunzerug followed by Amon?
