John Surtees (right), whose 1964 world Formula One championship with Ferrari and seven world motorcycle titles will almost certainly remain a unique feat, is to be honoured in a special tribute within the third Goodwood Revival Meeting on 15-17 September.

A cavalcade of cars once driven by Clark will also be under the spotlight. The Scottish double world champion’s outright lap record for the 2.4-mile circuit, shared with Jackie Stewart from Easter 1965, was finally eclipsed last year, appropriately by Lotus 49 racer Geoff Farmer. MP
