Few would argue with the fact that Scottish racing great Jim Clark ranks as one of the greatest Formula One drivers of the post-war era. His successes in everything from a Grand Prix Lotus to a Ford Galaxie have made him a household name in Britain, in the same way that Mario Andretti is in the United States. So while it is not extraordinary that numerous Web sites exist chronicling his achievements, it is, however, unique to find a Web site that deals not only with the driver, but the man as well.
This month’s site was created by a dedicated Australian enthusiast who wanted to pay homage to both the man and the driver. As such, this site is organized into a number of distinct sections dealing with the various periods of Clark’s life. These sections include both photos and narrative and cover areas such as: his early life before F1, a year-by-year account from 1960–1968, as well as Clark’s experiences in the Tasman Series and the Indianapolis 500. Other interesting features of this site include remembrances from other drivers, mechanics and fans, as well as sections on the various Clark memorials that can be visited in Scotland and at Hockenheim.
