A GP3 test and Formula 1 simulator time are among the prizes for a karting event organized in memory of Henry Surtees this year.
The Henry Surtees Challenge takes place at Buckmore Park in England on Oct. 24, and is organized by Henry's F1 and motorcycle racing legend father John (LEFT). Henry Surtees lost his life in a Formula 2 crash at Brands Hatch in 2009.
The karting event is aimed at racing aspirants aged 16 and up, and the list of prizes includes a GP3 test with Carlin Motorsport and a session on the Red Bull F1 team's simulator.
"This event is purposely staged towards the end of the motorsport season," said John Surtees. "The objective of course is to raise funds for Henry's charity, the Henry Surtees Foundation. However, I am acutely aware of the problems that young drivers face in developing their careers. So with the help of some very generous sponsors I wanted to put together an event that provided prizes which would create valuable contacts, publicity and be career enhancing in their content."
