From 1970 he ran his own team, Surtees Racing Organisation, in Formula 5000, Formula 2 and Formula 1, taking the title in Formula 2 in 1972.
honestly my favorite part of rupauls drag race is seeing queens who love themselves and are confident and positive succeeding. esp when theyre given shit for it or didnt start out loving themselves. like jinkx was given shit her entire season but she loved herself and performed so well because of it. and roxxxy and alyssa and katya learned to get past anger and fear and bullshit and learned to love themselves and their art (and their personalities) elevated so much as a result. everyone on drag race who learns to get past their own heads and just be positive about themselves are rewarded for it and its so affirming to watch.
