John Surtees was a nice quiet unassuming gentleman, unfortunately motorcycling is not a sport that is recognised by the media try getting motorcycle race results on the TV RED BUTTON . You can get everything from Football down to Judo Squash Ice hockey Basketball but never Motorcycle Race results.If he had played tennis, been a jockey or played a guitar he would have received a Knighthood years ago. R.I.P. John you will be sadly missed by us all.
You would never know it from the media. BBC are more interested that a sister Sledge has died and also today Alistair Mcgowan said on prime TV (pointless) that “motor sport is not a sport” its a very sad day indeed
