On New Year's Day 1968, two time Formula One World Champion and 1965 Indianapolis 500 winner Jim Clark scored his 25th and final Grand Prix victory from Pole Position in what was to be his final Grand Prix appearance.
'Victory 25' made Clark the most successful driver in Grand Prix history, pulling him ahead of Juan Manuel Fangio and his 24 wins a decade earlier. The potent combination of Clark, the Ford Cosworth engine and Colin Chapman's Lotus 49 was the early favorite to capture the 1968 world title, until events at Hockenheim a few months later ended Jimmy's extraordinary career.
Artist David Gray has captured Clark's 'Victory 25' in the vibrant acrylic on board study seen below.
A Limited Edition of 49 giclee prints on canvas of Gray's painting is being produced. Like the original, the image will measure 21" x 40".
Copies will be available for delivery next week.
The first public display of 'Victory 25' will be Saturday, May 27 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of our display at the Indianapolis 500 Memorabilia Show in the Pagoda Plaza Pavilion.
I hope to see you there.
