A programme of events to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of double Formula One World Champion Jim Clark, who died on 7 April 1968, has been confirmed.

The weekend of 7 & 8 April 2018 will see a collaboration between The Jim Clark Trust, Club Lotus, Live Borders and Chirnside Common Good Association all coming together to welcome visitors to the Scottish Borders who would like to pay their respects, share fond memories and celebrate plans for a new Jim Clark Museum.

The programme will involve a commemorative Church Service in Chirnside, a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Jim Clark museum in Duns, an anniversary dinner at Carfraemill Hotel and an open exhibition at Chirnside Village Hall for anyone who would like to showcase their own Jim Clark memorabilia.

As part of the anniversary programme Classic Team Lotus are planning to exhibit some of Jim Clark’s famous race cars, with the addition of over 100 classic and modern sports cars from Club Lotus.

Plans have been announced to provide details to visitors and car clubs expected from across Scotland, the UK and around the world – everyone is welcome.

Doug Niven, cousin of Jim Clark and Trustee for The Jim Clark Trust said:

“Everyone is welcome over the weekend of 7 & 8 April. It is quite incredible how his memory remains so strong and emotional even 50 years on. We feel honoured that so many people have shown interest and we want this weekend to be both a commemoration and celebration to inspire future generations. We would like to thank Club Lotus, Live Borders and Chirnside Common Good Association. It will be intriguing to see if we can uncover new memorabilia that may be of interest to the new Jim Clark Museum with the Chirnside Hall exhibition. We are delighted with the support of Classic Team Lotus and a display of some of Jim Clark’s incredible race cars which I am certain will help attract people from far and wide.”

Jim Clark inspired a generation in the 1960’s. He was killed in a tragic accident in a Formula Two race at Hockenheim in 1968. His death shocked the world leading to a greater emphasis on safety led by his friend Sir Jackie Stewart still relevant to this Formula One to this day. The world of Formula One and people from all over the world came to Chirnside Church in the Scottish Borders in 1968 for his funeral. He was a shy farmer at heart and much admired for his modesty and humility alongside his success. Jim Clark is widely regarded to this day as one of the greatest and naturally gifted racing drivers of all time.

In September 2017 plans were confirmed for a new £1.6m Jim Clark Museum funded by Scottish Borders Council, Heritage Lottery and The Jim Clark Trust. The new museum is expected to open in the spring of 2019. Additional Jim Clark anniversary events are being planned at the Hockenheim Jim Clark Revival 20-22 April, Loretto School 22 April, The Argyll Festival of Performance 2-3 June and at The Goodwood Festival of Speed 12-15 July.

Thanks to Land Rover for a great day out at Dunkeld today. Condition were perfect, to put the new range of Land Rovers to the test with deep snow and temperature never getting above-9 it became rather challenging at times. Highly recommended. In my opinion Land Rover still make the best off road vehicles and personally cannot wait for the new Defender range.

Beautiful sunset across the frozen Loch to finish off a special day.

Testimonial

This is to state that when I visited the premises of Border Reivers,I was really impressed by the knowledge of Tom Fitzsimmons when it comes to Porsche.The standard to which the cars are presented is meticulous.I have been communicating with them over many years as their offerings of Porsche have seemed mouthwatering, but one never knows by conversation alone the extent of enthusiasm and detail knowledge that Tom has put into the business, so it was a real pleasure to be there for real. I have been connected with the Marque Porsche ever since the early 60s and have driven them internationally and for Porsche themselves over many years. I have been buying, selling and racing Porsche for 48 years and it is a real pleasure to see such enthusiasm translated into such a passionate business always seeking perfection in the product.UnknownQuick Nick with his trade mark front wheel in the air
