PETER BEARDMORE

Classic Trial - - NEWS -

It’s al­ways sad to re­port the death of any­one, but es­pe­cially so in the case of Peter Beardmore who passed away af­ter a brave fight against can­cer in late Oc­to­ber.

Clas­sic Trial Magazine Edi­tor John Hulme: “I have known Peter for the best part of 40 years from my early tri­als days at the Chea­dle Auto Club events. Over the fol­low­ing years our paths would con­stantly cross not just in the UK but also in Europe at world cham­pi­onship tri­als.

“I had been told he was very ill ear­lier in the year but out of the blue in June he con­tacted me. He ex­plained about his health prob­lems in a very pos­i­tive way and then asked if I would con­sider tak­ing on board his pho­to­graphic col­lec­tion of around 3,000 pic­tures from the six­ties to the present day! This to me was a great priv­i­lege and they will come to life once again over the next few years in our pub­li­ca­tions.

“Off the back of our meet­ings you will find an ar­ti­cle ti­tled Ambassador, the life of Peter Beardmore. Once you read the ar­ti­cle you will un­der­stand the ti­tle as that was what he was, a global ambassador for mo­tor­cy­cling. We worked on the ar­ti­cle to­gether and it is pub­lished with the bless­ing of his fam­ily.”
