    Background: John Surtees of Great Britain won both the 350 c.c. And the 500 c.c. races in the motor-cycling Grand Prix of Germany at Hockenheim June 14. It was hit third double victory in there world championship events this season--the French Grand Prix last month and the recent Isle of Man T.T.Races.

    Riding M.V. Agustas he and team-mate Remo Venturi (Italy) lapped all the twenty other 500 c.c. competitors. Bob Brown of Australia, riding a Norton, was third. Surtees' time for the 96-mile race was 52 mins 11.12 secs.

    Surtees now leads in both 350 c.c. And 500 c.c. World championships, with 24 points in each.

    Other thrilling races filmed were the 125 c.c. event, won by Ubbiali (Italy) on an M.V. Agusta, and the "breakneck" side-car event won by Florian Camathias and "passenger" Hilmar Cecco of switzerland on a BMW.

    A competitor in the 125 c.c., when cornering at speed, hit and track-marking bale of straw and sent it hurtling into the crowd. Ambulance workers were soon on the spot tending to an injured man.
