In 1966 a couple of weeks after competing abroad in the Alpine Rally Roger Clark had a phone call from Henry Taylor of Ford with some surprising news. Roger's namesake had been persuaded to do the RAC Rally with Brian Melia as co-driver. Roger was flabbergasted that he was asked to go down to Bagshot to show Jim the ropes. Roger in his book was extremely complementary about how Jim learned everything so very quickly, the book is well worth obtaining. Starting in London Jim drove #8 Lotus Cortina NVW241C and made a lot of headlines but finally retired in Scotland due to an excursion so far into the scrub that nobody could see the wreckage. Roger retired quite early on and Graham Hill in a Cooper S didn’t get any further than the Lake District on day two, his Mini retiring at Grizedale with a broken gearbox and a cracked sump.
