Meet Jim Clark's mentor at Club Lotus show


Jim Clark's guiding light Ian Scott Watson will be one of the star guests at the Club Lotus Show and Festival at Donington Park on 20-21 April.

The Border Reivers linchpin (on left in main picture, with Innes Ireland and Clark) will be on hand as the event celebrates the 50th anniversary of Clark scooping his – and Lotus' – first Formula 1 World Championships.

Scott Watson will be joined by other leading Lotus lights including designer Len Terry, Clark's chief mechanic Bob Dance and Mike Costin.

Elsewhere, the event will have a technical bent with gurus such as Brian Buckland, Brian Angus, Frank Sadowski and Andy Widnall showing off their skills.

Hundreds of Lotus road and race cars will be on display inside and outside the halls, with many more in club displays and owner parking.
