Jim Clark Museum preps for commemorative events


Two-time F1 world champion and Grand Prix legend Jim Clark was born on this day in 1936.

The new Jim Clark Museum located in picturesque Duns in the Scottish Borders will enjoy its public ground breaking ceremony on April 7, fifty years after Clark's death at Hockenheim in 1967.

The programme will involve a commemorative Church Service in Chirnside, an anniversary dinner at Carfraemill Hotel and an open exhibition at Chirnside Village Hall for anyone who would like to showcase their own Jim Clark memorabilia.

As part of the anniversary programme Classic Team Lotus are planning to exhibit some of Jim Clark’s famous race cars, with the addition of over 100 classic and modern sports cars from Club Lotus.

Plans have been announced to provide details to visitors and car clubs expected from across Scotland, the UK and around the world – everyone is welcome.
