The Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in Duns has been nominated for a Royal Automobile Historic Award.

Started this year, the RAC's Historic Awards recognise excellence and outstanding contributions to the UK’s historic motoring and motorsport industries.

It is the first award nomination for the new museum, which opened in July of this year.

To have our first award nomination after just a few months of opening is incredible. This demonstrates the hard work and creativity delivered by all the project partners: charity Live Borders, Scottish Borders Council and The Jim Clark Trust. A huge thanks to all those that have supported us to-date. There’s still time to visit the museum if you haven’t already, as we are open until the end of November, before re-opening for the new season in March 2020.”

Shona Sinclair, Curator for the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum

The winner will be announced at a gala evening in London on Thursday 21 November 2019.
