To many enthusiasts, Jim Clark remains the greatest racing driver in history. Modest and gentle, yet charismatic, Clark had a towering ability to get the maximum out of any car he drove, without appearing to be trying hard. From a Scottish borders farming background, Clark won 25 of the 72 Grands Prix he drove in, to take two World Championship titles, and also won the 1965 Indianapolis 500. This superbly produced book brings Clark's career vividly to life through stunning photographs sourced exclusively from LAT, the world's largest library of motor racing images.
