My son obtained the just release Grand Tour (the old Top Gear guys redux) which has a terrific and sensitive Jim Clark tribute.

The trailer:

Just watched the entire piece on Amazon - a very good watch.

I saw it - it was very good. I assumed that Mr Hammond was driving around in the Type 25 because Clarkson and May didn't fit in it!

Great show. It was especially cool for me as we have been bringing in Bob Dance, Clarks mechanic (chief mechanic for a bunch of others like Hill, Rindt, Andretti, Senna) for Lotus Ltd's LOGs the past few years. I have become friends with Bob and there he was in a few of the videos and photos. Try and make to LOG 39 this year in Sturbridge MA, in August. Bob will be there again.
