Bonhams Henry Surtees charity auction at Brooklands 25 June

Bonhams is privileged to have been asked to once again conduct a charity auction in memory of the late son of ex-Formula 1 and 500cc motorcycle world champion John Surtees.

Henry Surtees, who was widely tipped as a star of the future, was tragically killed in a freak accident while driving in a Formula 2 event at Brands Hatch in July 2009.

An endurance kart race and auction at Mercedes-Benz World Brooklands on 4th July last year raised £54,000. Some £16,000 of that was achieved at a star-studded auction attended by the likes of ex-Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell and F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.

This year’s auction in aid of the Brooklands Museum Trust and the Henry Surtees Foundation will include a six-person tour of the McLaren Technology Center donated by McLaren Racing Ltd, a monthly supply of Kurt Geiger shoes, items of signed Formula 1 memorabilia, and the chance to secure a chauffeur-driven Maserati Quattroporte for the day.
