Motorsport Memorabilia 1965 Grand Prix commemorative cover
In 1965, Jim Clark took 6 pole positions and won 6 races against Graham Hill's 4 poles and 2 victories, he also led for over half the laps in the season. Having sorted out the problems from its debut in 1964, the Lotus 33 was clearly dominant, enabling Clark to achieve his second Drivers Championship title and give Lotus the Constructors trophy. Although Hill and Stewart both scored well for BRM, they were denied the Constructors title on the discounted points system. The Honda RA272 won the last race of the season, driven by Richie Ginther; this was Honda's first F1 victory. The Ross Wardle artwork depicts Jim Clark in the Lotus-Climax 33, leading the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, with Graham Hill's BRM P261 and John Surtees in his Ferrari 158. It is rare to see so many F1 Champions in the same picture.
