Fifty years ago - on May 31, 1965 - Memorial Day in the USA - Jim Clark securing the first half of his historic achievement with Team Lotus. In becoming the first European to win at Indy since the 1920s - and the first to win in a rear-engined car - Clark set the scene for a double-whammy that will never be repeated. Clark would go on to secure the F1 World Championship that same year with a stunning series of wins but in May, 50 years ago, all his focus was on Indy - on rocking the establishment and changing the way the Americans went racing.
