John Surtees

Tribute to Surtees Family


I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of Henry Surtees, the son of 1964 Formula One World Champion, John Surtees, OBE. I interviewed John for an article in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 2008 MotoGP program one year ago. John was most helpful and pleasant to speak with. He encouraged me to call on him in the future if he could be of service to me. That interaction somehow makes the tragedy of his 18-year-old son's death all the more real for me.
