Scottish Borders Council have announced that work will start on the expanded Jim Clark Museum project immediately after the temporary closure of the museum in May this year.
Thomson Gray have provided Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer services for the project since its inception and are delighted to be part of this historic £1.6m scheme.
The temporary closure will coincide with the 50th anniversary of Jim’s tragic, untimely death at the Hockenheim race circuit, Germany, on 7 April 1968.
A double Formula One world champion, Jim Clark was a native of Fife but grew up in the Borders town of Duns, where the current museum is situated, within what was once his family home.
The museum will display historical memorabilia, trophies and some of the cars that Jim drove on his way to becoming World Champion. Space will also be afforded to ‘guest’ sports and racing cars from different eras.
Commemorative events to mark Jim’s remarkable life are taking place throughout April.
