High-profile motor enthusiasts retrace the steps of Great British racing legends.
Episode 2x3; Jan 11, 2015
Paul Hollywood meets one of his heroes, John Surtees - the only man to win world championships with both bike and car. To get an insight into the life and times of one of Britain's greatest living sportsmen, Hollywood takes to the track and the Isle of Man TT circuit to recreate some of Surtees's finest races. He learns how Surtees went from humble beginnings to working for the aristocrats of Italian racing, Ferrari and Agusta. Surtees looks back on a life filled with danger, glamour and intrigue - one that has seen both triumph and devastating personal tragedy.
With contributions from Surtees's wife and daughters as well as rivals and commentators, the programme gives an intimate and enthralling portrait of a complex man who survived and succeeded in an era when death and injury were an ever-present danger in racing.
