Motorsports enthusiasts visited the Borders in their droves at the weekend to pay their respects to late racing legend Jim Clark.
About 1,000 visitors attended a programme of commemorative events marking the 50th anniversary of the Fife-born Grand Prix champion’s death.
People travelled from far and wide to celebrate the life of the Chirnside farmer turned double Formula One world champ, killed in a crash in Germany on April 7, 1968.
Lotus cars, including six of Clark’s own, lined Newtown Street in Duns on Saturday, and guests including Clark’s mechanic Bob Dance, friend Ian-Scott Watson and Clive Chapman, son of Team Lotus founder Colin Chapman, were also in attendance.
The gathering also signalled the start of work on a new £1.6m Jim Clark Museum.
Clark’s sister, Isobel Henderson, closed the current museum by waving a chequered flag before waving a green racing flag to give the go-ahead for work to start on the new one.
Clark’s cousin Doug Niven, a trustee of the Jim Clark Trust, said: “We will never cease to be amazed at how many people want to come and pay their respects to Jim and learn more about him.
“We look forward to a new museum celebrating the life and achievements of Jim and his legacy for Scottish motorsport to promote heritage, education and inspire future generations.”
