Henry Surtees Challenge offering GP3 test
16 August 2012 – More sought-after prizes are up for grabs in this year’s Henry Surtees Challenge, established in memory of the driver who lost his life in a 2009 Formula 2 race. The rewards include a GP3 test outing and a stint in the Red Bull Formula 1 simulator.
“Our primary goal for the event is of course to raise as much money as possible for the Henry Surtees Foundation,” explains John Surtees, 1964 F1 World Champion and father of the 18-year-old, who died following a freak accident at Brands Hatch.
“I am also aware of the problems young drivers face nowadays and we therefore have some very interesting prizes.”
Last year’s Henry Surtees Challenge, staged at Buckmore Park in Kent, was won by Alexander Sims who had been team-mate to Surtees in the 2008 Formula Renault UK season. This year’s event will be taking place in October.
