on, which celebrates 50 years since the modest Border farmer won his first World Drivers’ Championship.The original hardback edition, published in 1997, was quickly nominated as the best account of the life of the double world champion. Classic Cars awarded five stars, nominating it Book of the Month: “Eric Dymock has produced a book rich with anecdotal reminiscences from those who raced with Jim Clark. Dymock has clearly done his research and brings riveting details of the life, background, psychology and raw talent of the man alive.” Andrew Frankel wrote in Motor Sport: “Great though (Jim Clark) was I thought I’d reached the stage when I’d read so many words about him as my lifetime would stand. Not so. Dymock’s book is compelling, not least because its story is told with clear affection that stops short of the fawning adulation with which so many seem obliged to equip themselves before penning a word about dead racing drivers. An engrossing read.” The Automobile: “…compulsive reading and thoroughly recommended”. Classic and Sportscar nominated Jim Clark Best Book of the Year: “Eric Dymock’s celebration of Jim Clark was a totally inspired publication". Clark’s close friend, Ian Scott Watson wrote in Scottish Field: “Jim Clark – Tribute to a Champion is the sort of book you will not lay down until you have read it cover to cover; it is the definitive book on Jim Clark; it is a must for the bookshelves of anyone with an interest in motor sport. It is a book which stands as a remarkable tribute not only to Jim but to its author.” Judges for the Guild of Motoring Writers Montagu Award agreed. They nominated Jim Clark runner-up for 1997 to Eric's winning book Saab, 50 Years of Achievement.
