Henry Surtees

Henry Surtees had been participating in motorsport since the age of 8 when he began karting. His career in Comer Cadet, Formula Junior Rotax, Formula Junior Gearbox, Ginetta, Formula BMW and Formula Renault brought him race wins in every category and some championships. He was widely tipped as a star of the future. He was tragically killed driving in the new Formula 2 class at Brands Hatch in a totally freak accident, where he was hit by a wheel off of another competitor's car, in July 2009 aged 18. He had been a strong competitor for top honours and was the fastest British driver in the category, and the previous day had finished third in a closely contested first race.
