AN EVENING WITH FREDDIE SPENCER
Fri 21 April 2017, 19:30 – 21:30 BST
Join us for an Evening in the company of former World motor cycling champion, Freddie Spencer, as he talks about his new autobiography Feel: My Story.
From humble beginnings in Louisiana, Freddie Spencer rose to the pantheon of greats, to win both the 500cc and 250cc GP World Championship in the same year - an historic achievement over three decades ago which has never been repeated. One of the great racers of the 1980's, 'Fast Freddie' describes the thrill and horror of racing in an era when death was a perennial threat. He recalls in pin-sharp detail the frenetic high-octane racing duels with the 'King' Kenny Roberts, but also describes a parallel internal journey as he struggled to make sense of it all. Driven by a search for the personal fulfilment that comes through finding your purpose, Freddie's story is a universal one. In its message of hope, Feel transcends its genre to offer a story for everyone. Part thriller, part philosophical self-exploration, it is a remarkably insightful account of what it is like to have it all, but wonder why.
We are thrilled to be hosting this event with Freddie the day after publication and look forward to what should be a special evening full of insight. Don’t miss this chance to see and meet this motor cycling legend.
