Jim Clark, Tribute to a Champion

Eric Dymock 2017 ISBN-10: 095745855X
ISBN-13: 978-0957458550
Updated with additional information about the Jim Clark Trust (to which a royalty is donated on each copy sold) and museum and the images have been updated with plenty of colour included. The pictures are all quite small, but this is a book about text rather than photographs and is a fascinating read.

Celebrating the life and achievements of Jim Clark (1936-1968), Formula 1 World Champion 1963 and 1965, this book details his place in motor racing history and his total command at the wheel. Eric Dymock portrays him as an individual, nail-biting, insecure yet along with Juan Manuel Fangio the greatest driver ever. From a Scottish farming family Clark rewrote the annals of American racing at Indianapolis, second at his first attempt in 1963, winning in 1965. Seemingly equal to the odds of the most dangerous eight years at the top of motor racing, Clark died in an unlikely accident in a minor race at Hockenheim on April 7 1968. Genius at the wheel was not enough. Rivals' campaigns for safety saved countless lives on and off the track.

Eric Dymock first met Jim Clark when they were competing against each other on the Scottish Rally in 1955, at the time Clark had not yet sat in a racing car and Dymock hadnít started his career as a journalist. They became firm friends and this is a comprehensive biography of one of the all-time greats by someone very well placed.
