Stewart Pays Homage to Tyrrell at Silverstone

Monday August 27th, 2001

Triple World Champion Jackie Stewart fired up his 1971 Championship-winning Tyrrell on Monday in a tribute to the Formula One team's late founder Ken Tyrrell.

Tyrrell, the former Surrey timber merchant who launched Stewart's career and was one of the most popular and influential figures in motor racing in the 1960s and 1970s, died on Saturday morning aged 77.

Stewart opened the final day of the Silverstone Historic Festival by completing three laps in the Tyrrell 003 in which he won seven Grands Prix in 1971. He also dedicated the meeting to Tyrrell.

"Ken was the most important person in my life outside my family," Stewart had said in an appreciation at the weekend. "Without Ken Tyrrell, I would not be where I am today."
