Lotus Exige Sport 350 - Hillclimb at Bo’ness Revival

"Lotus legend Jim Clark – a national hero, one of the greatest drivers of his generation and a true motorsport icon – has been celebrated at the Bo’ness Revival Hillclimb 60 years after he competed at the event.

In 1959, armed with the very same Lotus Elite he had raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans weeks earlier, Clark tackled the famous West Lothian hill in a time of 37.4 seconds. Overcoming all the elements of the course, it pushed his Lotus to the limit and is still a competitive time today.

Formula 1 World Champion in 1963 and 1965, and the winner of the Indianapolis 500 in 1965, Jim Clark made 72 Grand Prix starts, claimed 25 wins and 33 pole positions, all behind the wheel of a Lotus. Clark remains to this day a true icon of the sport and one of the greatest drivers of his generation."
