I too met Ian [ Yon] at age 16/17 when we were all stone broke apprentices at various Engineering jobs. My memory is a very talented helpful friend who knew how to make a motorcycle go well, & we all watched him race at Brands Hatch or other UK tracks.
I join with All of our "Friends of Long Ago" to offer our condolances to Jo & All of The Family & wish Ian Everlasting Peace.
Good -by to our Friend Yon known locally as Ian.
