10 Secrets to Sporting Success:Professionals reveal their mind training secrets Katie Page, Helen Clarke
Jim Clark was a genuine sporting hero. He won 25 of his 72 Grands Prix and in the sixties was the yardstick by which every other driver on the starting grid was judged. Quite simply, Clark was peerless. Stubborn and notoriously indecisive outside the car, where he would nervously chew his fingernails, he was a genius when he got behind the wheel.
Though it is fi fty years since he gained his two Formula 1 World Championship titles, the interest in Jim Clark has not waned. The Scotsman is still regarded as one of the best Grand Prix drivers ever. In the 1960s, Clark and his mentor, Colin Chapman, conquered the very pinnacles of single-seater racing with Clark winning the F1 World Championship twice and the Indy 500 once. All in all, he claimed more than one hundred victories at the wheel of a Lotus. This 400-page book from McKlein does not just tell the story of Clark s extraordinary racing career, it also portrays his personal life from A to Z. Author Graham Gauld followed the career of the Scotsman right from its very beginning. He has fi lled the roles of friend, photographer and reporter, and thus spent innumerable hours with Clark. This lavishly illustrated book contains many rare images from various well-known archives thus helping to complete an intimate portrait of a true sporting champion.
