Henry Surtees lost his life in Brands Hatch accident
19 July 2009

Formula Two driver Henry Surtees has passed away in a London hospital after the 18-year-old Briton was struck on the helmet by a flying wheel. The son of former F1 champion John Surtees was knocked unconscious and he and his car crashed straight into the barrier.

Henry Surtees entered his first kart race when he was eight years old at Blackbushe in Hampshire on 25th September 1999 in a 60cc Comer Zip Kart and throughout the remainder of 1999 and 2000 he took part in many club events at Rye House, Buckmore Park and Blackbushe. He was the winner of the 2000 Club Winter Championship at Rye House aged 9.

In 2001 he changed to a Cadet Wright Comet Kart and competed in club events throughout the year and was named 'Man of the Meeting' in 'Champions of the Future' at Rowrah. In 2002 Henry graduated to a Mini Max Rotax 125cc for 11/16 year olds. He won at Buckmore Park his first time out, followed by 2 heat wins and fastest lap at Whilton Mill.

2003 saw further successes with the Mini Max with many heat and final wins, fastest laps and lap records. He was also a member of the British Inter-Nations team and the highest points scorer and a member of the winning team.

In 2004 Henry drove a 125cc Junior Max Rotax at various circuits throughout the country with a number of heat and final wins. In 2005 he competed in two classes in this series, Junior Gearbox and Junior Max with many good heat and final places in the Junior Max class finishing 6th in the event series. In the Junior Gearbox class he had many heat and final wins and was crowned 'Stars of Tomorrow' Junior Gearbox Champion at Buckmore Park on 25 September.

His career really started when Henry entered the Ginetta GT Junior series in Great Britain in 2006. He won three races and finished third in the championship. After a year of Formula BMW he moved to Formula Renault 2.0 UK in 2008.

Our thoughts are with Herny Surtees' friends and family.


Para quien no entienda ingles. Hoy durante la segunda carrera del GP de F2 de Brands Hatch, la rueda de un monoplaza ha salido despedida con la mala suerte de impactar contra la cabeza de Henry Surtees (el hijo del campeon de F1) con terrible resultado.

Que mala suerte tuvo. En la F1 también se supone que con los cables de acero la rueda no debería salir volando pero todos los años vemos alguna rueda por los aires, no se debería endurecer la reglamentación sobre esto?
