Jim Clark Motorsport Museum

Overview

About the Museum

Jump into the driving seat and discover one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. This is the story of Scotland’s first Formula One World Champion- one of the greatest racing drivers of all time.

During a career lasting over 11 years, Jim Clark secured double Formula One World Championships, conquered the Indy 500 and won many other races around the world during the 1950s and 60s.

This vibrant visitor attraction is a must for motor racing fans and everyone looking for a great day out!

As well as viewing many of the trophies that Jim Clark won throughout his career, we have a changing programme of exhibitions. Currently, we have a special exhibition of ‘Clark in the Lens; photography Eric Bryce’. Eric Bryce was Jim Clark’s friend, fellow Borders farmer and a gifted motorsport photographer.

A highlight of any visit is our changing programme of period cars associated with Jim Clark.  On display for 2022 are:

  • Lotus 25 R6, a Formula One on loan from the Tinguely Museum, Basel. This car was raced by Jim in 1963 and 1964.
  • A Yellow Lotus Elan, the last road car owned by Jim Clark which he kept in Paris. He gave it away to his friend Jabby Crombac, a French motorsport journalist, just before he took off to fly to Hockenheim in April 1968.
  • A locally owned Lotus 23b. In 1963 and 1963 Jim Clark competed in numerous sports cars races in Lotus 23s.

Our interactive museum allows you to explore Jim’s incredible career in motorsport and his life beyond, and all in Duns Berwickshire, the area in which he grew up and farmed.

A great day out for all the family and enthusiasts.
