Plans for a £1.5 million redevelopment of the Jim Clark Museum has been given the green light.
The museum has been granted £635,000 of lottery money to expand the existing Jim Clark Room.
A similar amount will be provided by the Scottish Borders Council, and the rest from public donations.
The Jim Clark Trust confirmed it had reached its fundraising target of £300,000 thanks to the support fundraisers.
The project will see the existing space in Duns redeveloped to create a modern museum.
It will celebrate the life and achievements of Jim Clark, a double Formula One world champion.
Honorary President of The Jim Clark Trust said:
The new museum will showcase memorabilia and the trophy collection, including two of Jim Clark’s race cars.
The Jim Clark Trust and representatives of the Jim Clark Memorial Room Trust have been involved throughout the project development, and have played a key role in fundraising.
Trustee and cousin of Jim Clark said:
The new museum is due to open in 2019.
