John Surtees 1934 - 2017
It is with great sadness that we heard the news of the passing of John Surtees on Friday. John had been a patron of the Sporting Bears Motor Club since 2000. Whilst I currently have no knowledge of his introduction to the club or any subsequent involvement maybe members can share their experiences with us all via facebook, twitter or letters to the editor. I am sure we are all in agreement that John Surtees was an incredible inspiration to all involved in motorsport, both two and four wheels, and his commitment to his race team right through to his last days show the level of his passion and dedication. John may you rest in peace from the best grandstand seat ever.
