  • RIP, Jim Clark

    On this day, 51 years ago in a forest in Germany, we lost one of, if not THE, greatest. It's late in the day and not one mention of Jimmy.

    The loss of Jimmy was a huge shock to me. He was no doubt my number one hero at the time, and it took me a long time to get over it. But true, I rarely think about it anymore.
    I was at Hokenheim about 5 years later and the track's long run through the forest by that time had been lined with Armco barriers. Not the best protection perhaps, but infinitely better than hitting trees.
