Jim Clark

Here's a photograph I took in the paddock on practice day for the British Grand Prix at Aintree in July 1962.
It's the late Jim Clark who qualified his Lotus 25 in pole position for the race, in which he finished in first place and also set the fastest lap. Jim Clark won three of the nine World Championship races that season, but retired in four of the other races due to the fragility of the Lotus 25, finishing second in the World Championship to Graham Hill. The Lotus was sorted by the following year though, Jim Clark winning seven of the ten races and the World Championship by a large margin from Graham Hill.
