Lighting Up the Freeway

Formula One World Championship

45 years ago today one of the greatest drivers of all time, Jim Clark, was killed at Hockenheim.

Eric Dymock’s excellent biography “Jim Clark” summed up the universal appeal of the man…………..

” A disk jockey on a radio station in far away Los Angeles said: “If you are mourning the death of the great driver, Jim Clark, put on your headlights.” The whole freeway lit up at midday.”

The lights go on and then off…………………..
