    What can any of us say. I’ve known and worked alongside Bev since the mid Seventies he was always a true gent, and even when our opinions differed we always parted on good terms, Bev was a true supporter to the National MiniStox Club taking an interest and fighting their corner when he could.
    Bev will be truly missed, my condolences to Dot and the family.

    Like many others I knew Bev from the early days when we watched stock car racing from the terraces. And as time went by I admired his skills as a commentator, journalist and administrator. Everyone will have different memories, one of my favourites, his opening line to one of his early commentaries “If you think you can hear thunder its not, its the butterflies in my stomach doing the military two step”.
    Great memories of a great guy. cheers mate Steve.

    To me Bev you was the voice of Brafield and always will be nobody could ever fill the seat and commentate like you , I have been coming to Brafield since 1976 , I raced a stock rod for 6 years and had and heard the pleasure of you saying my name over the speakers many a time , you will be sadly missed and I will miss saying good afternoon to you every time I saw you , God bless Bev may you rest in peace

    RIP Bev, you will be sadly missed by thousands on and off the terraces and be remembered by countless fans who haven’t been racing for decades. Your commentary is as synonymous to F1 Stock Cars as the Rinky Dink tune is to a rolling lap at Brafield. What a tough act to follow.

    I cannot remember how I met Bev, but it must have been down to photographs for the Stockcar Supporter Magazine.
    Bev “promoted” me to Charles Ochiltree and I added Coventry and Leicester to my “official photographer” list, likewise John LaTrobe at Brafield at Bevs intervention allowed me onto the centre at Brafield. Without Bev’s help who knows how things would have been. In that way he touched my life and I wonder how many more lifes’s changed for the better when guided by his gentle manner and advice.
    Bevs was truly one the really nice guys, a gentle honest and helpful guy and never a wrong word for anybody.
    I know KB is regarded as “Mr Brisca” and rightly so…but surely Bev Greenhalgh was the “Voice of Brisca”.

    R.I.P. Bev
