New for 2017, the Jim Clark Museum will make its debut at the Ingliston Revival as it takes centre stage at the event. The official charitable partner of the Ingliston Revival in 2017, the Jim Clark Trust is raising valuable funds to make the dream of a new and expanded Jim Clark Museum in Dunns, Scottish Borders a reality.
Jim Clark is widely regarded as one of the greatest and naturally gifted motor racing drivers of all time, a national hero for Scotland and international icon of the 1960’s. Jim was an integral figure and key financier of Ingliston Circuit that was opened in 1965 and extended in 1968 and Jim both raced and paraded cars at the circuit.
Jim Clark’s tragic death at Hockenheim in 1968 stunned the world and in terrible circumstances helped redefine the future of Formula 1 with a greater emphasis on safety led by his close friend Sir Jackie Stewart, the Trust’s Honorary President.
The Jim Clark Museum at The Ingliston Revival will display a fantastic range of Lotus F1 cars from Jim’s career, memorabilia, trophies and an audio visual display of his extraordinary life within a dedicated indoor visitor attraction located next to the hospitality pavilion, adjacent hairpin bend. Visitors are encouraged to find out more about the trust’s goals and donate to their campaign.
In addition to the Jim Clark Museum, guests are welcomed to drive the Original Ingliston Circuit in a fleet of classic car simulators located in the retail village, with all donations going to the trust.
