Jim Clark Trust is raffling off a very special Evora GT410, and it could be yours for £20...
While 2018 marks 70 years of Lotus (or at least 70 years since Colin Chapman started building cars), it also represents 50 years since the passing of Jim Clark - arguably the most fondly remembered of all the Lotus F1 drivers. Possibly F1, period.
Now Jim Clark fans have a very special opportunity; this Evora GT410 Sport, the 100,000th Lotus built and designed to evoke Clark's Elan, is being given away in a competition. It's being run by the Jim Clark Trust (so no need to worry about a Lotus competition being organised by PH), with all proceeds from ticket sales going towards a new Jim Clark Museum.
Making this Evora unique are the red paint, silver wheels, silver roof and tartan upholstery, as worn by the 997 NUR Elan back in the early 60s. Clark's signature also adorns the buttresses.
The Clark Evora was actually revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Duke of Richmond commenting: "The stunning Jim Clark Special Edition Evora is a fitting tribute to a legendary man and his iconic Elan. Clark's exploits on track were very special indeed and we are proud to launch this competition here at Goodwood."
Construction of the new £1.6m Jim Clark Museum began earlier this month, with the work expected to take a year. Tickets for the competition cost £20 and can be purchased here - the winner will be announced on the museum's opening in 2019. Good luck!
