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.”
