Greatest Drivers of All Time #15: Jim Clark

In a new series I am doing on the blog, I take a look at the greatest fifteen drivers in the history of motorsports, with some statistics and reasons as to why I selected them: 

Jim Clark



Born: March 4, 1936 Scotland
Died: April 7, 1968
Race starts: 77
Wins: 26
Poles: 33
Indianapolis 500 Wins:  1
F1 Championships: 2

Jim Clark was nothing short of amazing, but it is such a shame is career was cut short following a fatal crash at Hockenheim. Clark was a legend, winning 25 races in 72 starts in Formula 1. Not only that, but he came across the pond and won the the Indianapolis 500 in 1965. Clark is one of the most versatile drivers ever. It's not often you hear of drivers competing in Formula 1, Indycar, Sports Cars, Touring Cars, and so on. He did it all. Jim Clark is undoubtedly one of the greatest drivers of all time.

Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for #14.
