    Re: Andy Phillips "Ducatiman"

    Met Andy only once and by chance at one of my visits to LB. We chatted as I'd overheard that he'd had a recent procedure and wished him well with his recovery. He replied in a very matter of fact way that his condition was terminal! He seemed a genuinely very friendly guy as others have confirmed and so sad to hear that his condition has taken him too soon from his family and friends.

    Condolences to Carol and Family, you can expect something as much as you want & it is still a shock. It will be impossible, thankfully to forget Andy's fantastic smile, what a lovely bloke.

    The level of his Stratos is near impossible to match & a huge credit to Andy as he has created something that may well out last us all.

    Rest in peace Andy.

    Re: Andy Phillips "Ducatiman"

    Just logged on when I saw this sad news, I did pop up to see Andy a few times and was amazed at the amount of medication he had to take !.... He wanted to build his Hawk Stratos HIS way and was making a great job of it, probably the first car with a sequential box ?... along with other unique parts.
    Great bloke who will be missed, condolences go to Carol and his family

    Re: Andy Phillips "Ducatiman"

    I first met Andy at Chatsworth in 2007, he’d never been in a Stratos so I drove him to John Hinchcliffe’s house. We’ve met up at various events since then and have had many conversations regarding his build. I’m so sad I won’t get to see him behind the wheel of his car.
    I have so much admiration for the way Andy battled his illness and am extremely grateful to him for taking the time to give me support when I was going through chemo.
    Jules and I send our condolences to Carol and the wider family. X

    So sad to learn of the terrible news regarding the loss of Andy. We always enjoyed meeting at different events .I remember his hospitality at Silverstone Woodlands when he had the use of a motor home . He took time to show me and Ian around his new R8, which he was proud of . A true smiling warm hearted gentleman of generous and courageous spirit.You will be sadly missed. Condolences to Carol, friends and family . Paul & Ian H x

    RIP Andy. Sad news indeed. Many memories from our French rod trip in the early days of his prognosis.
    Our thoughts and condolences to Carol.

    Re: Andy Phillips "Ducatiman"

    I've had a text from John Hinchliffe today. Unfortunately John can't access the forum at the moment, but wants to add to this thread and echos everything that has already said on here regarding Andy.
    John has been very close to the work progress on Andy's Hawk, and has made working visits to help Andy with some aspects of the car's build. John knew Andy as well as, if not better than any of us.
