LACar BOOK REVIEW: “JIM CLARK – The Best Of The Best”
By David Tremayne

Review by Doug Stokes

Jim Clark, a Scots farmer from Duns, Scottish Borders, and Berwickshire is considered by everyone who ever saw him drive a car in competition to be one of racing’s very best ever. He won two Formula 1 World Driving Championships, was the 1964 British Touring Car Champion, and won the 1965 Indianapolis 500. 

Clark raced in hundreds of sports and formula car races and was triumphant in more than half of all of the races he drove in regardless of the type of car or the venue. Jim Clark almost seemed to have some sort of magical power over his mounts.

… Here’s the deal, we asked our friends at Ford for a small cross-over type vehicle to road test over a five-day family journey up to the cool blue beauty of Lake Tahoe.

The Blue Oval people kindly loaned us a “Lightning Blue” Ecosport with the new 1-liter EcoBoost engine … We then loaded it up with a load of personal survival gear which included nine or ten complete changes of wardrobe, eleven jackets and four vests of varying density, and a pair of shoes for just about every imaginable occasion (and some for just in case).  All in all there was enough gear aboard for close to a two month tour and that included our two dogs, and (very) heavy ice chest*.  The above all stowed aboard, we set out for the cool country.
