Jim Clark in Lotus Racer at the Indianapolis 500 Race, 1965

Summary

Scotsman Jimmy Clark sits in his Lotus-Ford Type 38 in 1965. Clark finished second at the 1963 Indianapolis 500, and was forced out early by tire and suspension damage in 1964. The third time was the charm when Clark became the first driver to win Indianapolis with a rear-engine car in 1965 -- and the first foreigner to win since 1916.
