The Scottish Borders farmer Jim Clark was the dominant driver of his era. He had a deceptively smooth and fluid style that masked tremendous pace. Despite being an extremely competitive driver he was the most good-humoured, polite and gentlemanly of men. His constant shadow was Graham Hill in his BRM. The great Scot is seen here leading Hill, Surtees, Stewart & Spence through Becketts corner early in the 1965 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Clark was to score a fine win as late in the race, he switched off his engine and coasted through some of the corners to offset dangerously low oil-pressure, narrowly beating Hill’s BRM.
