JIM CLARK THE BEST OF THE BEST

F1 Racing (UK) - - ESSENTIALS -

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.
