John Surtees to be the star turn at Autosport International

| 6 Sep 2013

Motor sport hero John Surtees will headline the celebrity guest list at Autosport International in January.

The only man to be world champion on two wheels and four is set to share memories of his illustrious racing triumphs, accompanied by a selection of iconic motorcycles and race cars from his three-decade long career.

At the show, Surtees will also highlight the work of the Henry Surtees Foundation. Established after his son Henry was killed in an accident at Brands Hatch in 2009, the charity assists those who have sustained injuries in accidents, and provides education, training and road safety instruction for two and four wheels.

The 1964 F1 World Champion said: "Autosport International is a major part of the motor sport calendar, and I’m delighted to be attending the 2014 show. Having raced for over 30 years in many different disciplines, it’ll be exciting to pass on my experiences to passionate fans, and share the work of the Henry Surtees Foundation in motorsport and road safety."

Autosport International takes place at Birmingham’s NEC on 9-12 January 2014. Click here for more information.
