The Jim Clark Trust was formed by Jim Clark’s parents James and Helen in 1978 to formalise their gift of the Presentation Cups, Shields and Trophies of his incredible career for public display to the District Council of Berwickshire, Scotland.
The Trust remains under the guidance of the Jim Clark family with Family Trustees Ian Calder and Doug Niven, nephew and cousin of Jim, alongside community leaders from Scottish Borders Council.
The Trophy Collection
The trophy collection, which is curated by Scottish Borders Council Museum and Gallery Service, consists of over 100 totally unique historic awards from Grand Prix’s around the world and motor sport races at all levels including rallying, GT, sports and touring cars from the 1950’s and 1960’s charting Jim Clark’s career.
Over the years the collection has been expanded with donations from fellow drivers, family and fans with additional memorabilia including historic drivers’ overalls, photographs, pictures, flags, newspaper articles, books and magazines.
