We surprised Ian Scott-Watson on his 90th birthday by phoning him during The Racer’s Edge Live on April 23, 2020. Currently self-isolating in the house he designed himself in Greenlaw, near Duns, Scotland, Ian was largely responsible for bringing Jim Clark to the attention of the world at large and of Colin Chapman in particular. Ian recalls some of the fun days with Jim in the 1950s and 60s and nominates his all-time favourite road car. This video is an edited excerpt from The Racer’s Edge Live, which airs every Thursday at 18:00UK, but has been re-mixed to include little-seen footage from the 1965 German GP.
