Product Description

DVD Champion Surtees
There are many champions who can say they have achieved the ultimate honour of lifting a world crown in their chosen sport. But only one man has achieved this tremendous feat on both two and four wheels. His name is Sir John Surtees, and this is his amazing story.

This DVD follows his prestigious career through two individual films.
In the first, David Wood charts Surtees motorcycle yearsàten seasons of racing which netted him no less than seven world titles!

The story is then picked up by Sir John himself, as producer Neville Hay illustrated the highs and lows of Surtees career on four wheels. When he won the F1 World Championship for Ferrari in 1964, John Surtees achieved aposition in motor racing history which is unlikely to be matched at any time in the future.

But it wasnt all plain sailing – en route to F1 success, Surtees came close to disaster in both his motor racing roles; facing death in the driving seat and financial ruin as Formula One team owner and Grand Prix car constructor.

But in typical Surtees fashion, all of these obstacles were overcome and Gentleman John now lives in stylish retirement, surrounded by one of the worlds finest collection of classic racing motorcycles.

Both of his legendary careers are covered in the depth they deserve in these two wonderful films, which make great use of rare archive footage. Its a unique film about a unique talentàJohn Surtees, World Champion on two wheels and four.
