Jim Clark en France.
Jim Clark. A name that suggests a prince of speed with a dazzling smile. So much has already been said or written about this extraordinary Scottish champion, whom many consider to be one of the greatest in the history of his sport: His natural elegance, his surgically precise aerial driving, his behaviour as incisive on the track as it is discreet off it, his loyalty and simplicity in his relationships with others, the symbiotic couple he formed with Colin Chapman – the brilliant Lotus creator – his tragic destiny… However, if the international sporting career of the champion is well known, the French part, including his life in Paris, is probably less so. With the help of new testimonies from friends and family, exceptional and unpublished photos and documents (notably from the archives of Gérard Crombac, Michel Finquel and the Clark family), the author has been able to shed light on the French and Monegasque dimension – 41 races in F1, F2, FJ, Sport and GT from 1959 to 1967 – of Jim Clark’s unparalleled trajectory.
