Jim Clark's Lotus 25-Climax
Racing immortal Jim
Clark qualified this
Lotus 1st, but DNF'd. The race history is a little confusing:
Clark was a strong runner in this car for 44 laps, then stopped at the
pits with fuel-injection problems. After a long stop he continued
in next-to-last place, but stopped again after 6 laps.
Team leader Colin Chapman called in teammate Mike Spence, then running
4th, and replaced him with Clark (Could you imagine that happening today?
TM) . Spence continued in Clark's car, but DNF'd after only 5 more
Clark (in Spence's car) moved up to 3rd, but retired after 102 laps
with an empty gas tank. He was awarded 7th place.
