Remembering Jim Clark

April 19, 2018

Jim Clark - Racing Legend

50 years ago this month, we lost one of the greatest race-car drivers of all time, Jim Clark (4 March 1936 – 7 April 1968).  The Scot was competing in a Formula 2 race at the Hockenhiem when his Cosworth powered Lotus 48 left the road at 140 miles per hour, fatally colliding with a tree.  He was 32 years old.  

We here at l’art et l’automobile remember all the great heroes of the Track, in particular when we lose them, like we did this great champion.  Jim Clark will live on in our hearts and minds.  

In that vein of remembrance, we have gathered several Jim Clark artifacts as well as Formula 1 and 2 memorabilia into one place, and present them to you.  Feel free to Peruse the collection here and take a piece of history home with you.

Alain’s artwork will take you back to the 1930’s to the Art Deco Era. As a child, he was more interested in creating images he had in his mind than concentrating on his school work. In class, he was thinking more about drawing elegant automobile lines instead of what his teacher had to say.
