JIM CLARK WEEKEND 13TH-14TH MAY
Event Date: Saturday, 13 May 2017
Start time: 00:00:00
End time: 00:00:00
This year’s Jim Clark Weekend will be based in and around Duns over the weekend of 13th-14th May. In fact we kick-off on Friday evening at around 7.00 with our traditional drive out to Eyemouth for fresh fish and chips and some bracing sea air.
On Saturday we head to Ingliston Circuit for the first day of the 2017 Ingliston Revival - see www.ingliston.co.uk for more information. Their charitable partner for this year is again The Jim Clark Trust and we’ll have reserved car parking and will be taking part in the track parades as well as watching the sprinting and other attractions. On the way back down to Duns we stop for dinner at Carfraemill near Lauder where legendary Scottish rally driver Andrew Cowan will be our guest speaker. As well as his numerous international rallying successes, Andrew has always been and still is a Borders farmer. Born in the same year as Jimmy, they were close and longstanding friends from the time when they were both young farmers and leading lights in the Berwick and District Motor Club with Ian Scott Watson.
On Sunday morning we meet at the Jim Clark Room before heading over to Andrew’s farm where he’ll host a privileged viewing of his private collection of rally cars. After lunch we then close the weekend by laying a wreath on Jim’s grave at Chirnside. All Club members are welcome to join in for all or part of the weekend
