The Beaujolais Run 2011 Returns the First Bottle by Road
Les Amis du Circuit de Gueux and French TV welcomed teams and ‘Run patron, John Surtees to the historic Reims-Gueux circuit. Teams paid their respects to the drivers of old before heading for Blighty, with a final lap of the circuit led by John Surtees OBE in the Jaguar XJ Supersport.
Approaching Calais, the teams basked in glorious sunshine before boarding Eurotunnel en route to the Royal Automobile Club’s Woodcote Park Clubhouse; where, incidentally, their adventure began at the beginning of the week, to reminisce their fun filled five days. All teams were victorious in their efforts to raise much needed funds in memory of the late Henry Surtees, for the measurable benefit of those who need it most.
The Beaujolais Run was filmed by Felix Prasser of hotels.tv and continues to bring the ‘Run to life for families, friends and sponsors across the world. Sponsors enjoy a vast audience on a global scale, giving patronage of a unique event where 100% of competitors’ sponsor monies benefit the event’s nominated charities.
