Passing of John Surtees CBE

Very saddened to hear of the death of sporting hero and Lingfield resident John Surtees CBE. As well as being one of the true greats in motorsport, John was a local campaigner setting up The Henry Surtees Foundation in memory of his late son, which helps support those suffering from serious brain or physical injuries. John was also a great campaigner for the local environment and a prolific fundraiser for many different causes. He will be greatly missed.
