Sir John Surtees Sadly Dies......
 
Edenbridge Racing “Hero” Sadly Dies!

Sir John Surtees a well known and respected “Hero” of Edenbridge, sadly died on Friday March 10th at St George’s Hospital, London, due to a respiratory condition which he had been suffering from, he was 83 years old.

He was a favourite to all who knew him in the town, he had a super following when he demonstrated his car’s and motorcycles in the Town’s 2014 May Day Parade...screaming engines, along Station Road through the Town, with himself driving and his crew in and on Surtees own cars and motorcycles.

Edenbridge Racing “Hero” Sadly Dies!

He was, and is still the only man living to have ever won a The Grand Prix “World Championship” on two and four wheels…A superb achievement for this young racer in his early days on the race tracks.

During his reign as a motorcycle racer he won four 500cc titles in – 1956, 1958, 1959, and 1960, also winning the Formula 1 Title in 1964 racing for Ferrari. In his early days, from 1958 to 1960 he was 350cc and the 500cc World Champion on two wheels.

John was awarded an MBE in 1959, which was the same year as he won “Sports Personality of the Year” a Tribute to a Great Racing Hero of the era!

In 2009, John was then awarded the OBE, followed in 2016 with a CBE award

During his race career Surtees, had the magic influence and determination, coupled with daring speed to win his Most Honoured Titles on two and four wheels. Between 1960 and 1972 he drove for Lotus, Honda, Cooper, Lola and BRM – winning six F1 races with 111 starts.

In later year’s he set up his own Formula 1 team when it made it’s first showing in 1970 at the British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch…One of his favourite circuits.

He also became Chairman of the British Team in the latter years which was the A1 Grand Prix Series, which has now been replaced.

His son Henry was competing in the Formula 2 series when he was tragically killed at Brands Hatch in 2009, only aged 18. John and his family went on to remember their son, and to make it a lasting Memorial to his Name with the - Henry Surtees Foundation - in aid of many who are recovering from brain and bodily related injuries due to motorsport accidents.

We Remember Sir John Surtees as a remarkable man…and more his own life devoted to motor sports, he was the life of Motor Racing in cars and motorcycles. He remains the “Hero” of the British people….As Still the only Man Winning Two World Campionships on Two and Four Wheels….!!!
