Remembering Jim: A Tragic Loss
Reflecting on the tragic events of 7th April, 1968, we mourn the loss of the talented Jim in a devastating accident at Hockenheim. His untimely passing has left a void in the racing community, with many attributing the crash to a deflated rear tyre. Colin Chapman and Graham Hill, deeply affected by the loss, continue to honor Jim’s memory. As we pay tribute to his remarkable skills and unwavering dedication, let us strive for safety and excellence in his honor. May we never forget the impact he had on Formula racing.
