Video: A tribute to Jim Clark

1968 started as his lucky year: in South Africa the Scot Jim Clark took his 25th Victory at a Grand Prix race and was therefore known as the most successful driver in the young history of the Formula 1. Just weeks later, Clark was killed in a F2 race in Germany on the Hockenheim Ring. The cause for this fatal accident was a puncture – but there were no eyewitnesses.

His death shook the entire racing sport to its core. Clark, son of a sheep farmer, was seen as "virtuoso at the steering wheel" and is still regarded as one of the greatest racing drivers of all time.
