A Great Scot – Jim Clark Conquers the World

This is a story of 1963, the season Jim Clark first became Formula One World Champion.

In a masterful campaign Jim won seven of 10 Grand Prix, securing maximum points under the contemporary rules. He became the first Scottish winner and was the youngest-ever champion at the time.

Jim also made a sensational debut at the Indianapolis 500 miles, finishing second – many felt he should have won as the leader was controversially not disqualified for leaking oil. Jim then entered and won the Milwaukee 200 miles, proving both his and the car’s capabilities.

These photographs come from the Motorsport Images archive, a collection of over 23 million pictures spanning 100 years of motor racing history – the Jim Clark section of the collection, taken in a pre-digital era, comprises a significant element of the archive.
