On This Day


Sunday 17th June 1962

57 years ago

Jim Clark won his first Formula One Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, and the first of four consecutive victories in Belgium for the Scotsman (despite thoroughly disliking the circuit) and Team Lotus. It was also the first win for the famous Lotus 25, and the beginning of the famous 6-year-long rivalry between Clark and Graham Hill. Clark would go on to one of the most storied careers in F1 history. His 1965 season was his crowning achievement as the sport's most dominant racer. Clark led every lap of every race he competed in, and he became the first Briton to win the Indy 500. Clark died in a tragic accident in a Formula Two race in Germany.
