Jim Clark weekend in Duns - 7th & 8th April

A programme of events to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of double Formula One World Champion Jim Clark, who died on 7 April 1968, has been confirmed.

The weekend of 7 & 8 April 2018 will see a collaboration between The Jim Clark Trust, Club Lotus, Live Borders and Chirnside Common Good Association all coming together to welcome visitors to the Scottish Borders who would like to pay their respects, share fond memories and celebrate plans for a new Jim Clark Museum.

The programme will involve a commemorative Church Service in Chirnside, a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Jim Clark museum in Duns, an anniversary dinner at Carfraemill Hotel and an open exhibition at Chirnside Village Hall for anyone who would like to showcase their own Jim Clark memorabilia.

As part of the anniversary programme Classic Team Lotus are planning to exhibit some of Jim Clark’s famous race cars, with the addition of over 100 classic and modern sports cars from Club Lotus.

Plans have been announced to provide details to visitors and car clubs expected from across Scotland, the UK and around the world – everyone is welcome.
