If, like me, Jim Clark was your idol as a schoolboy, then you must not miss this book! The photographs capture brilliantly an age when the skill of the driver was uppermost. A genius like Clark could overcome the deficiencies in a car and bend it to his will, but at the same time he was a quiet, shy man, and this also comes over in the photos, many of which catch him off-guard. Quite simply I've never read another book on Clark that gave me more pleasure and understanding about the man. Peter Darley's skill as a photographer is evident in the way he takes you inside Team Lotus, as if you were a privileged visitor. Not a cheap book, but as they say, the quality will be remembered long after the price has been forgotten. Bravo Peter!

If you buy just one book on Jim Clark, let it be this one, a pictorial of Jim's life at Team Lotus from beginning to tragic premature end at that fateful Hockenheim F2 race, when racefans (including me) expected him to drive at Brands Hatch. As a constant spectator at Brands, I witnessed most, if not all of Jim's exploits at the circuit, and official team photographer Peter Darley captures the spirit of the times superbly, you can almost hear the fab four singing "Help!" as you flick through the pages. The book covers Jim's races at the british tracks used in the period of Crystal Palace, Brands Hatch, Goodwood, Silverstone and Oulton Park, a feast for the eyes for all motor racing fans!

If I had to save one of my collection of motoring books from a burning building- this would be the one! Not only is the reproduction quality of the photographs superb, the composition is absolutely fantastic. Often photos taken around the pit-lane and paddock are nothing more than snap-shots; that is not the case here, Peter's work is of almost studio-quality, one would think that he had all the time in the world to compose, focus and set the exposure and yet there were no auto-cams in those days!
