Going by the sales of our 1:18 and 1:43 race car replicas, Jim Clark remains the most popular driver by far amongst collectors. He out-Mossed Moss and out-Gurneyed Gurney in the versatility stakes, achieving success in almost every discipline that he turned his hand to: F1, Indycar, endurance racing, touring cars and rallying. Heck, even Ayrton Senna decreed the Scot to be the best of the best, describing him as his boyhood hero.

You can imagine our joy, then, when we heard that a half scale helmet replica for Jim Clark is in the works to be produced later this year. It will be of 1965/66 vintage, featuring a deep blue shell (Pantone 289 to be precise), a white peak with a three-stud fixing, and a cloth strap complete with metal buckle. It will measure about 13cm in height, by the way.

The model will be supplied in a soft bag and presented in fully-branded packaging, with a donation from the sale of every example going to The Jim Clark Trust.

Given the stature that Jim Clark still holds across the sport, we do not think we are exaggerating when we say that this replica could well be sold out to pre-orders before it is even released. To be absolutely certain of securing yourself an example, your best bet would be to get your name down now.
