We are delighted to announce the opening of the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum after a period of closure for an exciting expansion to the centre. We’re glad to have been part of this project, celebrating the two-time Formula One World Champion Jim Clark.
Back in January 2019, we reported on the swift progress of the project and the freshly expanded museum re-opened in July 2019. The museum was officially opened by the world champion Formula One racer Sir Jackie Stewart, who counted Jim Clark as a friend, an inspiration and a rival throughout his racing career.
The BBC featured the opening of the museum in their ‘In-Pictures’ series which gives those of us not lucky enough to attend the opening a great idea of how the museum looks and what we can expect from our visit (as well as some great photos of racing heroes!).
The museum is in the small town of Duns in the Scottish Borders and expects to see visitors, holidaymakers and Formula One fans from across the globe in the coming years. The museum is home to a collection of over 100 trophies and memorabilia from the racing world and plans to host events and competitions for avid fans to enjoy.
More information on the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum is available on the Jim Clark Trust website.
