Tribute to Henry Surtees

Following the sad news of the death of Henry Surtees, in an F2 race at the Brands Hatch Circuit, arrangements were made with the management of the circuit, to lay flowers at the track-side, on Thursday 30th July, members who wanted to join in this tribute, met at ‘The Moat’, and at 7-45pm, drove in convoy to the Brands Hatch Circuit, where we laid flowers, and Mark said a few words which I am sure, expressed the feelings of us all. We then returned to ‘The Moat’ where the engines of our Alfa’s were revved for 10 seconds, followed by a minutes silence. Henry was the only son of John Surtees, the only man ever to be World Champion on both 2 and 4 wheels, Henry will be sadly missed by his family, friends, and all who are involved, or follow, the world of motor sport.
