F1 » Surtees Vs Brabham Vs Clark Vs Hill (Italy 1967)

The 1967 Grand Prix of Italy is considered by many to be one of the best Formula One races in history. It was also Scotsman Jim Clark's best drive of his life, according to many of those same people. The irony is that Clark didn't even win the race.

After all was said and done, there had been a total of twelve lead changes in the race. Just as it is rare for one to see that many lead changes during a race today, it was a remarkably competitive race then

Definitely his best race (Clark) - watching on BBC, his laps were consistently 1 1/2 - 2 seconds faster than the rest. Just a shame Chapman's calculations on fuel were just a tad too marginal, although to be fair no-one could have factored in those laps following the pitstop.

Another magical memory - thanks Crash.
