James Clark, Jr OBE (4 March 1936 – 7 April 1968), known as Jim Clark, was a British Formula One racing driver from Scotland, who won two World Championships, in 1963 and 1965.

Clark was a versatile driver who competed in sports cars, touring cars and in the Indianapolis 500, which he won in 1965. He was particularly associated with the Lotus marque.

He was killed in a Formula Two motor racing accident in Hockenheim, Germany in 1968. At the time of his death, he had won more Grand Prix races (25) and achieved more Grand Prix pole positions (33) than any other driver. In 2009, The Times placed Clark at the top of a list of the greatest-ever Formula One drivers.

 

Greg’s lyrics on Cirith Ungol’s Frost and Fire are very introspective, and I relate to them a lot. Maybe we’ve been through similar things growing up. Some of his other lyrics, like say “Jimmy Clark,” don’t dwell on personal stuff, but I dig how they tell a story. Much the same way Phil Lynott did with “Frankie Carroll” or “Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed.”
