Name a corner of the Nürburgring as "Surtees"

John Surtees died on March 10th 2017. He wasn't just the only man to win the premiere World Championships on both four wheels and two wheels, he was also a legendary "RingMeister". Fastest laps, race wins, any vehicle, any conditions, that was Surtees.

He deserves a corner of the Nordschleife to be named after him in perpetuity. By naming it simply "Surtees" we can not only honour a motorsports hero, but also his family name and dynasty, which was tragically cut short when his son Henry was killed at Brands Hatch circuit in 2009.

I have written a full explanation on my blog.
