JIM CLARK THE BEST OF THE BEST

As Dario Franchitti writes in the foreword, the fact it is now several generations since two-time world champion Jim Clark died only adds to the mysticism surrounding him.
So David Tremayne’s success in capturing the sheer diversity and achievements of Clark’s career means Jim Clark: The Best of the Best leads the way in ensuring his reputation lives on.
When the book tackles his fatal crash, the abiding sentiment is just how numb people were to learn of Clark’s death – making for a chilling few pages. But for the remainder, the accident is only peripheral which makes for an immersive, upbeat read.
Above all, it’s a celebration of a much-loved and world-beating icon.
