RIP John Surtees ( February 11, 1934 – March 10, 2017)

Sad to hear of the passing of John Surtees today, aged 83. A true gentleman and a former MV world champion. Rip John, it was my pleasure to meet you many times.

One of a kind for sure, one man ever to reach the top on 2 and 4 wheels. Glad I met him, if you get the chance to read his book, do.


Please MV do a Surtees F4 rather than a Lewis Hamilton one.

John Surtees Dead

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of MV legend John Surtees;


his family announced that he had succumbed to an existing respiratory condition.


He was 83.


Rest in Peace "Il Leone".

The older I get, the faster I was!
