John Surtees awarded a CBE. What does he have to do to get knighted? New Year honours are a joke!
Congratulations to AP McCoy on his knighthood but why hasn't John Surtees been given one!? Only man to win 500cc Motorcycling WC & F1.
John Surtees - it's in the name he was born with. He will always be a Sir to me.
John Surtees, A P McCoy, Chris Froome and Ronnie O'Sullivan just some of the greats to rightfully recieve honours this New Year.
Although it's good to see the AP McCoy and John Surtees are being honoured they may be two different generations but both treasures of sport
yay John Surtees to finally become a Sir -
AP McCoy - the epitome of hard work leads to success - deserves his knighthood. As does John Surtees - why it took so long for his?
Jenson Button, top bloke , and John Surtees, because he will have lots of stories.

Good to see the Great John Surtees today. No stranger to the podium on 2 & 4 wheels. Recently celebrated 80th birthday.
I can see why people think John Surtees should be a sir. The man won a motogp and F1 championship, that's a feat and a half
Hamilton gets his 1st placed trophy from a Tory MP, Bottas gets his 2nd placed prize from legend John Surtees. I know which one I'd prefer.
Great to see Sir John Surtees on the podium!
I can't believe an MP presented Lewis with the champion's trophy on 50th year when John Surtees was there beside him!
Nearly 5 years ago John Surtees lost his son Henry, still remember that race when i saw him giving 1st price to Hamilton.
So why couldn't Sir John Surtees present Lewis Hamilton's 1st place trophy instead of some tosser of an MP instead of doing 2nd place?
How is John Surtees not a Sir??? Only a World Champion on 2 and 4 wheels!
why hasnt John Surtees got a knighthood!!?
Good to see John Surtees presenting trophies, British racing legend and apt as profits going to
Its nice to see John surtees on the podium today (handing out a trophy) what a legend.

Shouldn’t John Surtees not be giving first prize out over a bloody MP?!
Fab to see the legend that is John Surtees :-) Give that man a knighthood FFS!
Why not let John Surtees present the winner's trophy instead of a bloody Tory politician?

🐾🐾TOP AWARD FOR WOFFY🐾🐾 WOLVERHAMPTON ace Tai Woffinden left a host of motorcycling icons trailing as he blitzed to the prestigious Motorcycle News Man of the Year Award for 2013. The 23-year-old was up against a galaxy of two-wheeled stars from the road racing world, but bagged twice the number of votes notched by any of the other 13 shortlisted riders to become the first speedway winner in the poll’s 56-year history following his World title triumph last year. The award puts Woffinden in the company of motorcycling royalty, as the likes of Barry Sheene, Mike Hailwood, John Surtees, Valentino Rossi and Carl Fogarty have all triumphed in the past. The prize is further recognition for the Team Great Britain captain, who stormed to the Speedway World Championship, despite starting the season at odds of 500/1 and breaking his collarbone twice during the year. Woffy, whose achievement was announced at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show at ExCel today, paid tribute to his fans for getting ...

John Surtees overlooked again in the honours list. What does a man have to do? World Champ 2 & 4 wheels, 10yrs charity fundraising
TBH I find it rather astonishing that Christian Horner gets an OBE and John Surtees STILL isn't knighted.. Its INSANE!!!
What a shocking omission, once again...what more could the great man (John Surtees) have done to deserve that title?
Can someone please tell me why John Surtees still hasn't received a knighthood?

Congrats to Christian Horner, OBE. As for the other guy, he's Sir John Surtees for me from here on in. Given up waiting.
Mmm. s John Surtees 79, only got his 5 years ago. MBE would have been more appropriate. Where M = MOANER
Congratulations to Christian Horner for his OBE. But sill no knighthood for Big John Surtees.
I'm more annoyed Horner got one but John Surtees still hasn't been knighted.
Christian Horner gets an OBE but John Surtees doesn't get knighted. Hmmm...
What about a knighthood for John Surtees then.
Congrats to Christian Horner on getting an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. Now for that Knigthood for John Surtees.
Or John Surtees, its a bloody farce! :-\
Arise Sir Baldrick! Tony Robinson knighted. What about John Surtees? Only 2 and 4 wheel World Champion?
I can't understand the Queen and system , why John Surtees is still waiting?
John Surtees is Knighthood material though? Compared to some??
too true and what about a Knighthood for John Surtees? Moss got one and bloody Baldrick now???

I see the queens Birthday Honours list has been published, still no knighthood for John Surtees!
Take John Surtees. Double World Champion on bike and car and only OBE? Stirling Moss and Baldrick bloody knighted!!!
Christian Horner gets an OBE for basically just hiring Adrian Newey. John Surtees wins the World Championship on bike & car and gets nothing
Yet still no knighthood for John Surtees. Surprisingly, the honours system *** ;)
congrats my *** ! What's he done in compared to John Surtees to be awarded the same gong and bloody Baldrick gets knighted!!
Can someone explain why John Surtees has not been knighted

BONHAMS TO ONCE AGAIN CONDUCT THE CHARITY AUCTION IN MEMORY OF HENRY SURTEES Malcolm Barber will take to the rostrum at the second annual event at Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands, on Tuesday 25th June to help raise money for two worthy causes 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.

Interesting article in the Guardian about John Surtees, and the fact he should have a Knighthood!...
It's funny when you look back on the long history of In Pit Lane and the opportunities it's given us over the years. Melissa McCormick and I have been to Le Mans several times, I've stood on the grid as the two minute board was shown. We have done the Goodwood Festival of Speed, attended the last ever meeting at the famous Montlhery circuit in France and went back two years later and filmed at Dijon. We filmed a show in Macau and I attended the opening meeting at Hampton Downs in New Zealand. Then last year, Adi Gondo Hartono, Jamie Kok and I went to the Ordos circuit in Inner Mongolia as guests of Audi China. Simon Thomas went to the Indy 500 and Jamie ended up at the British GP and Malaysia. Now I'm going to film at round three of the Super GT series in Malaysia. I've met and interviewed legends like Stirling Moss, John Surtees, Jack Brabham, in fact three generations of racing Brabhams and of course Peter Brock. It's been a hard slog at times and it's cost a lot of time and money but when I look back . ...

Hi, yes I paint everything this is signed by John Surtees, Jackie Stewart, mansell, Hill, Hamilton, Button
Click It Or Ticket. We've all seen the tv ads, macho posturing cops ticketing people wholesale. To target the police is misguided, however. They are "just following orders". The real criminals here are the legislators, local and national, who take money from the insurance lobbies and then write binding legislation imposing monetary penalties on those who don't obey. When you think about it, the insurance companies are the only ones who have an interest in making sure we 'buckle up'. CIOT is just a visible manifestation of the erosion of our individual rights. And what's with the $92 fine? If they were really serious the fine would be $5k. No doubt a focus group agreed on $92 as being 'just right'; not enough to break your bank, but enough to make us working poor just a bit poorer. Personally, I have always 'buckled up'. My childhood heroes Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill and John Surtees would never have gotten into their Formula 1 cars without strapping in. But, that is a personal choice. It is no one else's ...
