Jim Bebby 1935 – 2015

By Chairman • August 1st, 2015

Jim at Signing on

It is with great sadness that we announce that LMC Vice-President Jim Bebby passed away peacefully in his sleep on 26th July aged 80 years, after a thankfully short battle with cancer.

Jim’s jovial personality will be remembered by many hundreds of competitors over the years as he enthusiastically welcomed them to events at Aintree in his role as Secretary of the Meeting.

Jim joined Liverpool Motor Club way back in 1977, initially as a marshal but quite soon becoming involved as a very willing member of the service team supporting Club members on rallies in the UK and abroad. In the days when LMC’s main activity was promoting rallies, Jim became a pivotal member of the organising team on the Mayfield Safari Rallies and the Jeans Gold Cup events. He also took on the role of Club Treasurer, a role that he would maintain in typically impeccable manner for well over 30 years.

He will be greatly missed by all his many friends at Liverpool Motor Club and in the wider motorsport world.

Jim’s funeral service took place Tuesday 4th August at Anfield Crematorium, Liverpool and was attended by over 100 family and friends.
The family requested no flowers.
Instead any donations received will be divided between their two nominated cancer charities and may be sent to:
Barrington’s Funeral Service, 28 Crosby Road North, Waterloo, Liverpool L22 4QF


John Harden
Chairman, Liverpool Motor Club



Hi there
I now live in New Zealand and have very fond memories of my rallying days in Liverpool. The support and contribution Jim provided to me, friends and other competitors will live on in all of us.

Sincere wishes to Geoff and the family.
