Attraction in Scottish Borders

Jim Clark Motorsport Museum

The Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in the picturesque market town of Duns in the Scottish Borders is dedicated to the life and motor racing career of Jim Clark. Originally opened in 1969, after welcoming over 300,000 visitors, the Memorial Room was expanded into the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in 2019. The historic museum is home to a unique collection of over 100 trophies and memorabilia and draws visitors from all over Scotland, the UK, and the world. At the heart of the museum is the trophy collection featuring both Jim Clark’s historic Formula 1 World Championship cups from 1963 and 1965 and the Indianapolis 500 clock trophy from 1965. The displays chart his early career from 1956 and his remarkable success particularly with the Lotus marquee through to 1968 in all types of motor racing. The museum also features film footage, the drivers’ overalls in which he raced, pictures, photographs, flags, newspaper articles, books, and magazines. A small shop makes available a range of gifts. Signatures and messages from the Visitors Book include many of Jim Clark’s peers and drivers of the modern era including another motorsport legend Ayrton Senna.
