Arguably the best racing driver the world has seen and certainly one of the most versatile, Jim Clark died in a racing accident aged 33. By then the Scottish farmer had surpassed the Grand Prix victory total of the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio, who called Clark the best ever. Clark started 73 Grands Prix and won 25. He was World Champion in 1963 and 1965 and set Ford on its path to fame by pushing the Cosworth DFV engine to victory on its first F1 outing at Zandvoort, Holland. He was the first non-American to win the Indianapolis 500. No one understood Clark better than Eric Dymock, a fellow Scot who knew Clark from before he took the wheel of a racing car. Dymock, a long-time reporter on the racing scene at its highest level compiled this definitive biography by including what contemporary heroes, such as fellow champion Sir Jackie Stewart and Clark family and contemporaries had to say about him.
