  • Description

    JIM CLARK, THE FORMER WORLD MOTOR RACING CHAMPION, IS GETTING READY FOR THE INDIANAPOLIS 500-MILE (1600-KM) RACE TO BE RUN ON MAY 30. HE HAS BEEN TESTING A NEW LOTUS, WITH A 4.2-LITRE FORD V8 ENGINE, SPECIALLY BUILT FOR HIM TO DRIVE IN THE '500', AS THE RACE IS KNOWN.

    THE NEW RACER -- IT'S KNOWN AS THE LOTUS 38 -- WILL BE LEADING THE BRITISH CHALLENGE IN THE RACE. IT IS RUN ON RAW SPIRIT (ALCOHOL). CLARK FINISHED SECOND IN THE 1963 RACE, AND LAST YEAR WAS FORCED OUT BY MECHANICAL TROUBLE AFTER HOLDING A LEADING POSITION. IF HE'S TO WIN THIS YEAR, THE LOTUS WILL HAVE TO AVERAGE SOMETHING LIKE 150 MILES (240 KMS) AN HOUR.
