James "Jim" (or "Jimmy Clark, Jr OBE (4 March 1936 – 7 April 1968) was a British Formula One racing driver from Scotland, who won two World Championships, in 1963 and 1965...This is the one of the last race cars he drove before his death in 1968..Jimmy's car went off the track at over 150 mph..Clark's great friend and rival Jackie Stewart remembering a string of races in which he finished second to Clark, says: "We became known as Batman and Robin. And there was no doubt who was Batman and who was Robin." Jimmy was a demi-God," says Jean-Pierre Beltoise. "He was the best driver among us at that time."

 

Was cool to see such a peice of racing history at our local show...R.I.P Jimmy

Love old race cars. They show us a lot of advances in design in a very condensed timeline. Love those pipes too. Thanks for yet more cool pics :)

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

My guess is its a cosworth. There was some awesome engine layouts then 1.5L V16s H 16s etc was some very cool stuff around. Check this out for a cool engine sound

Growing up in Indy in 60s I was a big fan of Jimmy Clark. He won the 500 in 1965 and nearly did in 1966. He was second in 1963 which was his rookie year. It was devastating when he died. Many drivers of that era perished in crashes. I am quite sure the engine in the pictures is the Ford Indy V8. I have seen many of these engines.
