Grand prix legend John Surtees
is inviting enthusiasts to buy £45 tickets for a champagne reception at the Brooklands Team Challenge two-hour endurance kart race at Mercedes Benz World at the Brooklands Museum in Surrey on June 25.
Up to 35 four-person teams will compete in Daytona DMax karts at the event, which raises money for the Brooklands Museum Trust and the Henry Surtees Foundation.
Guests at the reception will drink Mumms champagne provided by F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and will get the chance to win a tour of the McLaren Technology Centre for six people in an auction organised by Malcolm Barber of Bonhams.
Other auction prizes include a pair of Felipe Massa's 2013 racing gloves, a Ferrari jacket signed by John Surtees
and a Maserati Experience prize, which makes a chauffeur-driven Maserati Quattroporte available to the winner for a whole day in London.
Nearly 30 teams have already entered. For entries or reception tickets contact Sharon Bowness at email@example.com
