John Surtees becomes first person to drive through Channel Tunnel

John Surtees becomes first person to drive through Channel Tunnel

Right, now we're well and truly motoring! This is quite often the way with interesting newspaper articles, I've found - there is a sudden glut of them within one or two days, then absolutely nothing for days - sometimes weeks - on end. Still, I'm not complaining if it means my shiny new blog gets populated nice and quickly!

So on the subject of motoring here we have Mr John Surtees, former British F1 and motorcycle GP champion, driving a British car, the Ginetta (which showcases possible future electric vehicle technology) through that marvel of Anglo-French engineering - the Channel Tunnel. Huzzah! A triumph for British ingenuity and pluck, all wrapped up in a story that we can look back on with a smile about our lips.
