The Beaujolais Run 2010 Makes History

After a leisurely breakfast, teams set out for their third and final historic Formula One circuit; Reims-Gueux. Les Amis du Circuit de Gueux were present to join competitors in witnessing a magical piece of history; one of the Amis brought with him a copy of a 1967 race programme signed by John Surtees. John took to the circuit in a Maserati Quattroporte S, 44 years after he first drove for Cooper Maserati having left Ferrari and as leader of the World Championship. John relished reliving his days at this evocative Formula One circuit; he sprayed competitors in Champagne Taittinger before leading competitors on a lap of the circuit; a truly moving occasion. This special morning saw a truly magnificent champion return to the circuit that had been so significant to his career.

Approaching Calais, the teams met unseasonably warm sunshine and boarded Eurotunnel to reminisce their fun filled five days. Undoubtedly thoughts turned to Henry Surtees whose helmet illustration stands proud on their vehicles and adorns their teamwear sleeves. All teams were victorious in their efforts to celebrate Henry’s life and raise much needed funds in his memory for the immediate and measurable benefit of those who need it most.

The Beaujolais Run film, filmed by Felix Prasser of, continues to bring the ‘Run to life for families, friends and sponsors across the world.
