Highly respected West Australian official, Ian Beard, passed away yesterday after a two year battle with Cancer.
Beardy as he was affectionately known, was an integral part of the West Australian Scrutineering teams at State and National Titles, having attended titles spanning four decades.
Recently Ian had the Best Presented Car at State Titles named in his honour, something he was thrilled about in his final days.
Beard and wife Margaret travelled the length and breadth of the State to attend titles, even when flying would have been a more viable option.
Speedway Sedans Australia, along with Speedway Sedans Western Australia send their deepest sympathies to Margaret and the Beard family.
Funeral details have been released today, with the funeral to be held on Wednesday, 17 January 2018 at Midday at the Geraldton Crematorium.
