Chirnside farmer David Swan opened his private collection of motor racing paintings and memorabilia, which included a special room dedicated to Jim Clark, back in 2004. The fruits of collecting over 70 years were on evidence in a converted granary and stable at Harelaw Farm. The collection included a number of prints signed by such luminaries as Stirling Moss, Juan Fangio, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

David is pictured above sitting on a Cooper Jap 500cc racing car in front of his collection.
