Le Mans Miniatures Jim Clark Indianapolis 1967
1:32 hand painted figure.
Jim Clark is a Scottish driver from the end of the 50’s. Colin Chapman, Lotus team founder noticed him and offers him his first wheel in a Formula one car in 1960. He competed with success in all kind of races and categories (Hill Climb, Formula Junior, Formula 2, Tasman Series, Formula 1, Rally, Sport and touring cars, Indianapolis and even Nascar). He participated LeMans 24 Hour three times in 1959 with Lotus, in 1960 and 1961 with Aston Martin.
Within 10 years he built with Lotus one of the greatest carrier in motor racing. He won his first F1 World Champion title in 1963.
He is very appreciated by his competitors, whose names are Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, and John Surtees for examples. He always beat them fair and square. His driving style was a mix of smoothness and finesse and quick at the same time.
He died during a Hockenheim Formula 2 race on April, 7th, 1968.
The picture we took as basis for the sculpture process was taken in Indianapolis in 1967; by his side Colin Chapman, Lotus team Manager. Note the little balanced but personal position of Clark’s feet, he runs his fingers through his hair. It is just before the start, he gets ready, goggles around the blow he wears his helmet around the arm.
