          Jim C. was my all-time hero and I was crushed when he passed. Racing is different than other "sports". The risk raises this sport above all. I am so thankful that young fans today don't have to go through the losses my generation suffered. Clark, Donohue, Revson, Senna, Jan Opperman, we've all lost idols. Racing will always be risky, but that's part of what makes it so exciting. Jim Clark was the greatest of all in my opinion, but whomever was the greatest in your opinion was the greatest.

            Even though Senna was my all-time fav, it's hard to argue this choice.

              There are so many interesting stories about Jimmy Clark. One of them is about him running a support sports cars race in the Felday 4wd 2 litre. And he won the first heat in it. I'm afraid we'll never see the likes of someone like him ever again.

                Foyt respected Clark and thought him to be a gentleman.

                  Was Foyt ever accused of that? Just asking....

                    I'm not clear how this has anything to do with the poll choosing Clark.

                    Perhaps you can unconfuse me.

                      What, we're supposed to stay on-topic here? Is that something new??? Where's my good friend Little Ant VOP from the swamps when you need him?
