Millions of words have been written about Jim Clark, especially driving this tiny Lotus 25. But the one quote, hence the title which stuck in my mind when involved in research for this sculpture was the answer Ayrton Senna gave when asked what he thought of Jim Clark driving skills? “The best of the best” so who are we to argue? No tricks, no cleaver backgrounds, no extra stories hidden in this sculpture. Just the purest of shapes, twisting and sliding at spectacular high speed, flying across the base. All in total control in the hands of the one and only Jim Clark.
