Trouble is, the same minimalistic style went into his racing cars. They broke, and people died, tho' in Jim's case they reckon it was a deflating tyre. I was devastated, especially since the first race i ever saw was the one where Moss had his career ending crash.
I have a photo of the "Jim Clark Malt". How the hell do I post it?? Haven't figured it out yet!
I met Jim as a wee boy. I waas walking through the paddock and I saw him looking at a book. I was curious, so he lowered the book so that I could have a look...at a picture of himself with two wheels on the grass!
I'm doing a book of all my racing memoirs and pictures, but I have yet to find a publisher. Got some great pics of jim in Lotus 25, and Cortina. The book has a forward by Stirling Moss(There you are! Now you know who gave me the whisky!)
I wonder if the whisky is Glenkinchie, as it's the nearest distillery to where he lived...but then again, it doesn't say "single"...just "malt"
