Ace Cafe London’s regular monthly Italian Night, held 6pm – 11pm close on the 2nd Thursday of each month, next falls on Thursday 11th February and as this date is also the 82nd birthday of John Surtees OBE, the cafe will be marking the occasion by teaming up with the charity founded by John in memory of his late son, Henry Surtees 1991 – 2009, for all Italian Nights at the Ace through 2016.
The charity, www.henrysurteesfoundation.com assists people with accidental injuries and helps young people to develop their capabilities.
Starting at age 15 in 1949, racing motorcycles and winning Grand Prix’s and World Championships, in 1960 John switched to racing cars, his debut Formula 1 race being with Lotus. This year, 2016, is the 60th anniversary of his winning his first World Championship in 1956 on a 500cc MV Agusta.
In 2013, the Royal Automobile Club awarded John the prestigious and historic Seagrave Trophy, the citation on which reads "For his outstanding career in two and four wheels motorsport, including seven motorcycle World Championship titles, culminating in the unique achievement of being the only man to win a motorcycle World Championship and the Formula One World Championship".
Everyone who puts a donation in the charity collecting tins on the counter at the cafe will receive a raffle ticket with draw being held at 10pm to win an Ace goodie pack and a subscription to Classic Cars Magazine!
Similarly, on Friday 12th February, British Bike Night, from 6pm with draw at 10pm an Ace goodie pack is up for grabs as a prize, along with a subscription to Classic Bike magazine!
