Festival of Speed visitors raise thousands for a new museum

THE JIM Clark Trust raised a huge £53,000 from donations from Goodwood Festival of Speed visitors over the four-day event weekend held this summer.

 

The official charity of the festival, the proceeds will help to celebrate the memory of one of the most successful and admired motor racing legends of all time, with plans for a new Jim Clark Museum.

 

This year’s Festival of Speed 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of 1968 with a competition launched to win the 100,000th Lotus ever made to raise funds for the charity – a Jim Clark special edition Lotus Evora GT410 Sport inspired by Jim’s famous 1960s Elan and created by Lotus Exclusive.

 

The winner of the competition will be announced at the opening of the new Jim Clark Museum in summer 2019.

 

The new, expanded Jim Clark Museum is being built to preserve the memory and display some of the incredible cars in which Jim Clark raced. The new £1.6m museum is funded by a partnership between the Heritage Lottery Fund, Scottish Borders Council and The Jim Clark Trust.
