So Sad To See John Surtees Has Died

Such a great man who I met on several occasions.  Always had time to spend with you, especially if it involved chatting about his passion for racing.

Re: So Sad To See John Surtees Has Died

Sad to hear.  In my early teens I remember sitting up all night with several friends the night before the race, setting out before dawn for the long uphill walk from Belfast to Dundrod through the mizzle, mountain mist and rain(14km + walking around the course to get a good position) to arrive before the roads closed for the start of Ulster Grand Prix, at least it was all downhill on the way back and well worth it to watch John Surtees win the 350cc and 500cc races with his distinctive sounding MV Agusta, lapping many of the other riders in the process.   We made that walk 2 years in a row.   R.I.P
