Jim Clark (* 04 March 1936, † 07 April 1968) – Highlights

1968 started as his lucky year: In South Africa the Scotsman Jim Clark won his 25th Grand Prix race and became the most successful driver in the young history of the Formula 1. A few weeks later, Clark was killed in a race at the Hockenheim Ring in Germany. His death shook the very foundations of motor sport. Coincidentally, the young cameraman Marten Taege documented his last race. Even then these unique images indicated that probably no other sport would have to offer so many triumphs and tragedies in the future. Clark was considered to be "a virtuoso on the steering wheel" and is still regarded as one of the greatest racing drivers of all time.
