There's an effort to crowdfund a proper museum to feature Clark's most famous Team Lotus race cars in addition to the memorabilia housed at the existing Jim Clark Room. Currently, the Jim Clark Trust has raised £85,000 (around $106,000 USD), but it's looking to get £300,000 to open the museum next year.


Major patrons for the Museum include legendary Scottish racing drivers Jackie Stewart, Allan McNish, Dario Franchitti, and David Coulthard, plus Goodwood's Lord March, and Lotus founder Colin Chapman's son, Clive Chapman. If you talk to any of these drivers, it's clear that Clark is an incredibly important influence.
