Few names in motor racing history's hall of fame rank alongside that of Jim Clark. From 72 starts Clark won 27 Grands Prix - a success ratio only bettered by Ascari, Fangio and Schumacher - and he was World Champion driving Lotus cars in 1963 and 1965. He was also the first Briton to win the Indianapolis 500 race. And yet the statistics only tell part of the story, because it wasn't what Clark achieved in a career which was so tragically curtailed in a fatal accident at Hockenheim in 1968, but the way he did it that endeared him to millions of fans all round the world. Intelligent, gentlemanly and with tremendous natural ability, Clark actually enjoyed racing just about any vehicle, anywhere. From powerslides on 3 wheels in Lotus Cortinas at Brands Hatch, to taking on the Americans at Indy, Clark revelled in squeezing the last ounce of performance out of any car. Here is the full story featuring superb archive footage of an era which saw Clark do battle with Hill, Surtees and later fellow Scot and friend Jackie Stewart.
