In the 1950s, a young and ambitious racing driver called David Clark fell in love with film. After buying the latest camera he proceeded to shoot everything that he saw – from his early races with Stirling Moss to the factory outing to Skegness.
A DVD is available of his pictures but what's his CV?

Owned Graypaul Motors for years (built up two 1960 F1 Ferrari replicas using genuine works engines for Antony Bamford based on his real car), owned Ferrari P4 s/n 0856 and P2/3 s/n 0826 - sold everything to start his charitable foundation - died on a steam-hauled train on the Great Central Railway, another organisation to whom he provided great support.

IIRC there was 1/2 hr programme devoted to him a couple of years ago in the UK, possibly on Channel 4
Saw that, excellent programme and full of film shot by the man himself of his various Ferraris and comment from his mate Stirling Moss.
Intriguing to think of anyone opening a Ferrari dealership as a hobby, which in effect it was!
Clarke seems to have kept himself quietly in the shadows doing very good work, for many years, out of the goodness of his heart and using his considerable fortune to enhance the lives of many others. If only there were more like him. A rare human being and as Macca says , a top bloke.
