Spare a thought for Bev who was re-admitted to Poole Hospital on Friday and is unwell at this time. Hopefully he will pull through again and achieve his ambition of racing next season, if he can find a kind benefactor to lend him a historic Formula Ford chassis for the year. :yawnface:

Sorry to hear that Tony.

 

Get well soon Bev and hopefully we'll get that fancy colour scheme on a car soon.

Very sad news, although I feared this news was coming. His charity work should act as an equally fine legacy as his driving.

What sad news, RIP Bev, I have many happy memories of chatting with him when I first started marshalling as a paddock marshal at the tender age of 14. to have a racing driver talk to you at that age was so very exciting....

Sad to be reading this news.  I have been thinking about Bev and remembering his exploits in the first Formula Three Ensign in 1971.  I can also recall what was possibly his last competitive drive in 1974 in Harry Stiller's Formula Atlantic March.

 

Thanks for posting Tony.
