John Surtees RIP

Just seen on the news that he's died.
Chris M Wanted a V-10

Having met him at M-B World in Brooklands a few years ago, that is very sad news indeed.

He never was granted the knighthood that IMHO He deserved

Sad news. What a legend.

Surtees with his legendary BMW 507 (Average Sale Value : $1,393,333). - a gift he had owned from new

Nice Guy Eddie

Top bloke and legend. RIP
Big Blue

Legend. Unsurpassed as being world champion in the blue ribband class on both two and four wheels.


This is such sad news. John was a very quietly spoken and humble guy, which made him very likeable. He was very approachable with spectators, and above all, was a great champion on two and four wheels.

I feel even sadder that John had to witness his sonís death at Brands Hatch. Rip to both Surtees.
