Everyone is welcome to the Jim Clark 50th Anniversary Weekend, which is free to the public and car clubs.

A collaboration of the Jim Clark Trust, Club Lotus, The Chirnside Common Good Association and Live Borders have put together a programme of events to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of Formula One World Champion and Borders Farmer Jim Clark who died competing at Hockenheim on the 7th April 1968.   

Enthusiasts are welcome to pay their respects, share memories and celebrate a major milestone in the development of the new Jim Clark Museum.  

The BVAC have been asked if we can assist in the running of the weekend by providing stewards and marshals.  Names please to David Pratt asap.
