|Notes||The life and racing success of two-time Formula 1 world champion Jim Clark will be remembered by the Historic Sports Car Club at Donington Park next month.|
The first day of the HSCC`s opening race meeting of the season on 7/8 April falls exactly 50 years from the day Clark was killed in a Formula 2 accident at Hockenheim in Germany, and the club plans to mark the occasion.
A one-minute silence will be held before the first race on Saturday afternoon and the event schedule will include an appreciation of the Scot`s achievements.
The weekend`s race programme will include some of the types of car raced by Clark across his decade of racing, including Lotus Cortinas, Lotus 18s, Lotus 23Bs and single-seater racing cars from the era before slicks and wings.
The prime celebration of Clark`s life will be held at his home town of Duns in the Scottish borders over the anniversary weekend and will centre on the redeveloped Jim Clark Museum.
A tribute race meeting, featuring Historic Formula 2 cars, will also be held at Hockenheim over the weekend of 21/22 April.
