After a dominating win at the1963 Italian Grand Prix, Team Lotus designer Colin Chapman and number two driver Mike Spence share the victory lap with the newly crowned Formula One World Champion, the incomparable Jim Clark.
Clark was a sheep farmer from Scotland, and arguably one of the greatest natural talents in any sport. Humble by nature, he was admired and respected by his competitors and beloved by race fans worldwide. He lost his life in 1968 in a Formula Two race at Hockenheim, Germany, when his car left the track and crashed into the woods. No other drivers were nearby at the secluded part of the circuit to witness the accident, and the cause was never positively determined. The consensus throughout the sport was that, given Clark's immense talent, it had to have been mechanical failure.
