DCG speech
On the 27th of April, Deputy Consul General Ishii attended the opening event of an exhibition of the work of Japanese photographer, Joe Honda (real name: Nobuyuki Jozuka) at the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in the Scottish Borders Region. Displayed in the exhibition, titled "Remembering Japan's Temple of Speed", are some of the photographs taken by Joe Honda during the "Indianapolis International Champion Race" (commonly known as the Indy 200) held in October 1966 at the Fuji Speedway located in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The exhibition is decorated with photographs of legendary Scottish Formula 1 champions such as Sir Jackie Stewart.
During Deputy Consul General Ishii’s opening speech at the event, she spoke about Joe Honda's encounter with motorsports and Jim Clark at the Indy 200 and the relationship between them. Later in the event, Deputy Consul General Ishii, together with Jim Clark's niece, Ms. Nicola Peddle, unveiled a new addition to the Jim Clark Museum, “The Golden Helmet”. This helmet was awarded to Jim Clark to mark his 1965 successes winning the Formula One World Championsip and Indianapolis 500 miles. It has rarely been displayed in the last 50 years but is on loan to the museum for the next 3 years.
The exhibition will be held at the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum until the 30th of November 2024.
