• Short Summary

    Craftsman Henri Baigent finishes a painstakingly detailed model of Jim Clark's Formula One Lotus Ford.

  • Description

    Bournemouth, Dorset.

    Various shots show Formula One driver Jim Clark in a Lotus Ford in the Grand Prix. Commentator says "Now he is dead, the Flying Scot who won more Grand Prix than any other driver".

    We then see several shots of Henri Baigent working on a miniature model of the Lotus Ford, that was to be presented to Jim Clark to commemorate his Grand Prix victories. Every part of the model is made by hand - extremely detailed work.

    The story ends with a L/S of Jim Clark driving along after winning a race, with the back of his car covered with flowers.

    Note: there is a newspaper article on file about Henri and his work.
