Jim Clark Museum Duns Scotland

Recommended Posts

Went a run today to the Jim Clark Museum in his hometown of Duns .

For those who dont know about Jim here is a summery

James Clark Jr. OBE (4 March 1936 – 7 April 1968) was a British Formula One racing driver from Scotland, who won two World Championships, in 1963 and 1965.

Clark was a versatile driver who competed in sports cars, touring cars and in the Indianapolis 500, which he won in 1965.[2][3][4] He was particularly associated with the Lotus marque.

Clark was killed in a Formula Two racing accident in 1968 in Hockenheim, West Germany.[5][6][7] At the time of his death, aged 32, he had won more Grand Prix races (25) and achieved more Grand Prix pole positions (33) than any other driver. In 2009, The Times placed Clark at the top of a list of the greatest-ever Formula One drivers.[8]

Ha ha! Nothing like a rousing drive through the Scottish countryside in a perky little sportscar to prepare for a visit to the racing museum! I'm positively green with envy. :tongue6:😁

:) Its the standard Assetto Corsa. As long as you have all the updates. RaceDepartment.com is the place for lots of extra resources.

We need to have a chat about add-ons. If you think you will play it a lot, then there is a third party launcher called "Content Manager". You can do load of stuff extra to the game. There is a free standard version and a donation of any amount unlocks the full version.

There is a mod called "SOL" that enables day night transition and working lights (something Kunos said they could never do with the AC graphics engine!)

We will have to hook up on a server.

1 convert down....how many others to follow.....Fruitbat? you next.......?
