John Surtees died aged 83 on Friday. The only man ever to win the World Championship on two wheels and four.
I watched him many times and marvelled at his speed, even in his seventies, particularly once at the Goodwood Revival, driving Nick mason's Ferrari 250 GTO to victory , where he was miles...
This man surely deserves a knighthood even though he hasn't donated large amounts to a political party, please sign if you have a soul and I'm assuming you have as you either own or like Alfa's

Death and Injury was commonplace in his fathers era, you just don't expect things like this to happen nowadays. :(
RIP Henry, and my thoughts go to his family.
Congratulations to John Surtees on his OBE. A phenomenal driver and rider. I don't think we will see his like again. It still annoys me that he hasn't been knighted. World champion FI and motorcycles...amazing follow the link to learn more
