What a brilliant experience.

I attended a evening talk the great man gave when he came to Brooklands a few years ago which was fantastic and where I felt he was a warm kind hearted man who gave his time freely.

Good for you in meeting one of your hero’s and even better that he didn’t disappoint, thanks for sharing.

Good post Andrew, and a great visit by the sound of it. Rather timely, although a bit close for comfort. KC.

You lucky luck man! I watched him ( and listened….. unforgettable sound) to him on Bray and on the mountain in TTs.. Tough choice between him and Mike the Bike tho! Tom

    Thanks Commanderrostom. Yes indeed, still think it was a dream.

    We asked Ago about Mike Hailwood. He called him a true gentleman.

    Of course, they were briefly teammates at MV Agusta. As you may know already, there are some fabulous pictures of both of them together in Ago’s pictorial biography.
