A film festival that celebrates the life of the two-time World Champion racing driver, Jim Clark, will take place at Eynsham Hall, near Witney, Oxfordshire, on February 23, 2008.
Clark scored his last race victory almost 40 years ago to the day of the event.
The program will include film shows and talks by people who knew Clark well or worked with him.
The film shows will cover Clark’s exploits at Indianapolis, including his race-winning year of 1965, his races in the Tasman series which took place in Australia and New Zealand, and other rare, never-seen-before footage, as well as some of his more-famous European exploits.
The talk session will feature special guests Bob Dance, Jim Endruweit and Dick Scammell—all former mechanics who worked with Clark at Team Lotus—and Ian Scott Watson who was a big influence on Clark’s early career.
Peter Darley, who was the official Team Lotus photographer during Clark’s time there, will be showing some slides of Clark during the talk session.
The day will finish with a three-course dinner at Eynsham Hall, where guests will be able to mingle and dine with the speakers and like-minded enthusiasts.
