This month's meeting was a real highlight as our speaker will be Andy Ibbott.
Longer term members will recall the last time Andy visited us, in very different circumstances, when he was Director of the Californian Superbike School in the UK and was accompanied by Leon Camier.
Andy suffered a massive stroke in March 2011, aged just 46, during a routine operation on his neck to remove a tumour from his carotid artery and was told the devastating news that he might not survive the next 72 hours. Despite all the odds Andy pulled through, although the effects of the stroke changed his life forever when he discovered he was unable to speak or move his right hand side. As director of the California Superbike School, a race coach himself and a keep-fit fanatic, the realisation was crushing.
