For any real motor sport fan this is a must see tribute to the wonderful local farmer, who achieved so much in his short life. Been twice during the Jim Clark/Lotus tribute weekends

Visited the Jim Clark Museum on Sunday, this was very enjoyable and interesting. Jim was a great driver and it was wonderful to see and read about all his wonderful victories and all the beautiful trophies he won.
