1-DVD (148 Minutes)

The second DVD disc in our series about the greatest drivers

of Formula 1. This DVD features Sir Jackie Stewart and

Jim Clark, and is nearly 2.5 hours in length.



Jackie Stewart : The Flying Scotsman – (88 min)

From European TV, a tremendous documentary on the great Jackie Stewart. Jackie started 99 Grand Prix’s, winning
27 of them, and was World Champion 3 times (1969, 1971, 1973). Jackie Stewart was the first millionaire racing driver
and one of the most recognizable faces in sport at his peak. The lad from Dumbarton, in Scotland, dined out with
royalty and shared his fun with multimillionaires, and his favorite haunts were in Monaco and in tax exile in
Switzerland. But that all paled beside his focus on driving. He was a natural who found his niche with Ken Tyrrell’s
homely team; the cars were not necessarily very good but in Stewart’s calm hands, they were winners. Stewart had
no qualms about walking away from the sport after the death of François Cevert, his team-mate and close friend, and
Stewart will probably want to be remembered as much for his refusal to accept lax safety standards and his
campaigning for better measures that probably helped save the lives of many drivers. Now the elder statesman of F1,
Stewart has emerged not only as a great driver but also as one of the greatest figures in motor racing.


Jim Clark – The Quiet Champion – (60 min)

Again from European TV, a great documentary on Jim Clark, a man many Formula 1 fans consider to be the greatest
ever. Clark started 72 Grand Prixs, won 25 of them, and was 2-time World Champion (1963, 65). There was always the
feeling that Jim Clark could drive a milk float and make it fly around a Grand Prix track. Adept in saloon cars and sports
cars, he was the yardstick by which every driver wanted to measure themselves in Formula One. There was nothing he
could not do at the wheel of a Formula One car, and his marriage with Lotus was made in Grand Prix heaven. The shy
son of a Scottish border farmer had little to say for himself and would have been out of place in today‘s publicity-hungry
environment, ruled by sponsors flinging around money and demanding the attention of the drivers they backed. Clark was
a gentleman amateur who drove simply because he loved driving. And he was sublime at the wheel, his touch and feel for
his car and the circuit without peer. He could administer a trouncing that would leave his rivals in admiration, no more so
than at the extraordinary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. In the 1960s, the circuit was more than eight miles long,
winding through the dense forests of the Ardennes, with its quixotic micro-climate, which struck on race day for the
Belgian Grand Prix in 1963. Clark drove through the pouring rain to lap the entire field, which effectively put him eight
miles in front of his nearest challenger. Clark was also impressively accident-free, registering only three crashes in eight
Formula One seasons, which only underlines the paradox of his death. In a minor Formula Two race at Hockenheim, his
car flew off the track into the trees and he was killed instantly. Formula One stood still and his death even now ripples
through the sport. The quiet man from Scotland was gone, but the memories of his immense talent live on.
