Jim Clark's Trophy - Help required!


Recommended Posts

We have recently become aware of this trophy coming up for auction. It was awarded to Jim Clark in 1962 for Pole Position and Fastest Lap Rand Grand Prix Trophy. The Jim Clark Fan Club feel that this cup should belong to the Jim Clark Trust and on display in the Jim Clark Museum in Duns. We are unsure what the final bid for this would be and we have asked our membership (5.9k members) if they would like to make a donation to allow us to bid at the auction for this. We have no idea what the interest will be like and how much the trophy will fetch at the auction. a contribution to the funds to allow us to bring this back to Duns. We would be most grateful to you and we would ensure that you are mentioned on our facebook page to be seen by our members worldwide.
If we were to be unsuccessful we will return the monies donated to everyone – however, it would be so meaningful to allow this trophy to come back to the Borders and allow fans to view it when they come to visit The fund page is now open see below for details

It seems we are bidding against an early riser with deep pockets, hopefully the reserve is not met and the owner can speak with the museum and come to an arrangement, lets be honest £4k is enough for that cup and the museum is it’s rightful resting place....fingers crossed

Unfortunately, the trophy did not meet the reserve.

However, the bid for the Jim Clark museum was the highest.  They will try to get details of seller.

Last bid was £12,110.

Thanks to all who donated to the cause.

That's very strong, reserve could be anything but that seems like a lot of money. Good effort for trying, fingers crossed they get hold of it off the seller without too much trouble.

Well, in my opinion, a pretty poor show on the sellers side of things, personally I would have took the £12k and been glad that it had gone to the museum.... but hey that’s his business.

delands, how much was paid for the one they bought in the end?

Anyone who made a donation and is a UK tax payer please let the Jim Clark museum know you are ok for them to claim tax relief on your donation
