Jim Clark: The Quiet Champion

The Brits out there may have seen this already but it's a well done hour on his life and accomplishments:

F1 - Jim Clark: the quiet champion (special) - YouTube

The current crop could stand to learn a bit from their predecessors...

Yes they could but no they won't.
They are too busy worshipping at shrines to themselves - a couple in particular.

Re: Jim Clark: The Quiet Champion

So honoured to see the great man race the 49, 50 years ago yesterday.
What a day, changed my life in the direction of motorsport.

Not sure how he would fare today, whole different era. Then it was true Motor Sport fans, now its a big media Circus. Jim was quiet and dignified, not sure the like would survive today. Shame.

There were even a clutch of 40s in the support International Sports Car Race: won by Richard Atwood in a Ferrari. Eric Liddell in a GT40 2nd!!
