Jim Clark author Dymock to visit Duns
Tomorrow (Friday) afternoon Live Borders will welcome motorsport journalist and author Eric Dymock to the Jim Clark Room, in Duns.
Dymock is visiting to sign copies of his new book, Jim Clark, between 2.30-3.30pm. This is an updated version of Jim Clark Racing Legend complete with an introduction from patrons of the Jim Clark Trust; Sir Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, Alan McNish and Dario Franchitti.
A donation will be made to the Jim Clark Trust on each copy sold which will go towards supporting the construction of the new Jim Clark Museum.
Dymock first met Clark in 1955 when Jim was only 19. This was at a planning meeting prior to the Scottish Rally of that year. Clark went on to become a double World Champion while Dymock became a noted journalist working for the Guardian and the Observer amongst others. He also contributed motoring items to television and radio.
Dymock’s original book on Jim Clark was published to great acclaim. He set up his own publishing company in 1990; Dove Publishing. In 2004 he won the Jim Clark Memorial Award in 2004 and was awarded the President's Trophy by The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers in 2014.
