Jim Clark races his Lotus 49 Ford through the daunting dives and swoops of the Ardennes Forest in 1967…

He popped his dominant Lotus 49 on pole, then led until a stop to change plugs. Dan Gurney took a famous win in his Eagle Mk1 Weslake thereby joining the club of which he Jack Brabham and Bruce McLaren are the only members- drivers who won a championship Grands Prix in a car of their own manufacture.

    Did you know that the Clark image appears twice in the above story?

      Yes Rob,
      Just me being ‘arty-farty’- they appeared that way in the Getty Images archive and I rather liked the way it looked, so…
      I suppose my favourite 1960’s single-seater is Len Terry’s Eagle Mk1 Weslake but the purity of line of the wingless early 49’s are hard to toss?!

      Yep ‘artistic talent’, I’ll hang on to that one! I haven’t had a trip through the Getty Images archive for a while- one can get lost for days, but occasionally the justaposition of one photo to the next makes an interesting combination which was the thinking in this case…
