Jim Clark Tribute at the Revival

Published 09 May 2013

Jim Clark will be getting plenty of recognition this year - the 50th anniversary of the first of his two Formula 1 World Championship victories. At this year’s Goodwood Revival (13-15 September), the annual driver tribute will be to the legendary Scottish racer.

A daily track parade at the Goodwood Motor Circuit will include a variety of Jim Clark’s most famous cars. The track parade will feature a wealth of the competition cars that he achieved success in. These include single-seaters, sports, GT and saloon cars.

The track parade will include the Lotus 25 in which Clark won the F1 World Championship in 1963, the Lotus-Cortina in which he won the 1964 British Saloon Car Championship, and the Lotus 38 in which he won the Indianapolis 500 in 1965. And many of his contemporaries will make the trip to West Sussex to pay tribute. Star names confirmed so far include Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, John Surtees and Tony Brooks.

Jim Clark competed at Goodwood on many occasions in the early 1960s, and, along with fellow Scot Sir Jackie Stewart, jointly holds the lap record of 1m20.4, set at the circuit’s final F1 race in 1965. Goodwood Revival founder Lord March fondly recalls meeting him as a motor racing-obsessed boy, saying: 'Jim was always very nice to me – quiet, charming, a thoroughly good guy; not brash like some of the other drivers.  He was an absolute world-class driver, and effortless is a good way to describe his ability.'

Tickets, grandstand seats, camping and other products for the 2013 Goodwood Revival can be purchased via the Goodwood website, or the Ticket Hotline on +44 (0)1243 755055
