Another great racer now gone. You were a classy man, John, and a credit to the racing community. R.I.P.

In the '60's I associated the name Surtees with Ferrari's Grand Prix cars; both top shelf for me. RIP to a great driver and a gentleman.

Sad news... if memory serves, he won world championships on both 4 and 2 wheels.
The world loses another one of the greats.

A bit late but I ran some of my Surtees cars in his memory this past weekend. RIP Mr. Surtees.
