Visit the Museum


Visit the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum and discover the incredible story of Jim Clark’s life and racing career with an exciting interactive museum experience. Jim Clark is widely regarded as one of the greatest racing drivers of all time, admired for his remarkable achievements and famous for his humility. He dominated world motor racing like no one before or since in all genres of motorsport, winning the Formula 1 World Championship in 1963 & 1965 and Indianapolis 500.

This award winning visitor attraction, was opened to the public on 11th July 2019 and then officially opened by Sir Jackie Stewart OBE on 29th August 2019 and is a must for all motor racing fans and a great day out for all the family. Discover stories of Jim’s greatest races, learn about his farming background and modest personality, watch films of him in action, be amazed by the trophy collection, be inspired by memorabilia, get hands-on with interactive displays.  The star attractions of the new museum are two of Jim Clark’s most famous race cars, the iconic Formula One, Lotus 25 and Jaguar D-Type.

In my opinion Jim Clark was the greatest racing driver ever.

The original Jim Clark Memorial Room opened in 1969 and has welcomed over 300,000 visitors to the historic market town of Duns in the Scottish Border to celebrate the life of Jim Clark. At the heart of the old museum and now at the centre of the modern Jim Clark Motorsport Museum is over 100 trophies gifted by Jim’s parents James and Helen Clark for public display following the tragic death of their son.

The guest book includes famous Formula 1, motorsport stars and visitors paying their respects and tributes from around the world: UK, Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and from far and wide.

In 2018 all 20 Formula 1 racing drivers including World Champions Lewis Hamilton, Sebastien Vettel and Kimi Raïkkonen signed the rear tailgate of a special edition Jim Clark Lotus Evora GT410 Sport at the Monaco Grand Prix to help raise funds for the Trust and Museum.

The man with natural ability uses finer limits than the man who has none. It is like a born artist being able to place paint on a canvas and make it a picture, whereas the majority of us would only make a mess. For I consider motor racing an art.
