Just heard that John Surtees has passed away. The only man to be world champion on 2 and 4 wheels :(

Sad, indeed. I just recently watched "The 24 Hour War" about the Ford vs. Ferrari competitions at Le Mans during the 1960s. John Surtees was one of the commentators featured in that excellent film.
