Perhaps the greatest natural talent ever seen in Formula 1. He apparently had difficulty understanding why other drivers were not as quick as himself.
Coming from a farming family, Clark started his racing in local road rally and hill climb events, although his parents were opposed to the idea. One day at Brands Hatch Jim raced his Lotus Elite and finished second to Colin Chapman - the man whose cars he'll later be driving at Grand Prix, and with whose team he'll be forever associated.
The Lotus 49 and Clark were an ultimate combination in 1968 and he would surely become a world champion third time, had he not been killed at Hockenheim in a Formula 2 race.
