This is just a pic thread and belongs more to motorsport pics or not?
Would you care to redress the balance by contributing some words as captions to the pictures.

Let's set the ball rolling;

This photo shows the memorial to Jim Clark at Hockenheim. Because of circuit changes, I understand it is now deep in the woods rather than alongside the circuit.

To me, the simplicity of the monument and its setting reflect the simplicity of the man.

Not really deep in the woods, there's a good path outside the Track Area to the new Area of the Jim Clark Memorial. Its on the beginning of the now renatured old straight

Here are more pics of the memorial, included a map were I marked the place :

I know this is a huge bump for an old topic, but the latest episode of The Grand Tour had a very nice segment about Clark.

edit: tried to upload the video but it got blocked right away
