I did a couple of races in the UK last year. The car was parked at Bernard's workshop. He would prepare it between races and would go with me to the races. There people would ask him who he was running, nobody he said, i am here for fun! then he said to me, if i am running you, i have to charge you. So i kept on bringin bottles of bacardi. That's typical Bernard a racer who loved to be at the circuits. We Miss you dear! See you later!

Yes Dave - the silence was shared with Dan Weldon - and those who didn't make it to the startline were respectfully silent in the paddock. You could have heard a pin drop. I've never known a race circuit so quiet.
All the FF1600s' carried "RIP Bernard" decals. And the ironic connection is that Bernard spannered Dan Weldon in his early car career.

The majority of people I spoke to said that they just couldn't believe he was gone.

I saw quite a bit of him at the Formula Ford Festival a few days before he passed away and just expected to see him at the WHT at Silverstone the weekend after next. Sadly not to be.

Everyone has a Bernard tale to tell and mine involves having him stay with me for a few weeks after Angela had kicked him out. That was a very interesting and different few weeks in my life. He managed to worm his way back home and my life became plain old boring again.

Hello all, very sad to hear of Bernard's passing - I raced gearbox karts (210 National) with Bernard back in the late 70's, early 80's, at short and long circuits, we were part of a little team with a mutual friend Brian Galley. All travelled together with wives/girlfriends in an old converted coach. We had some great laughs - Bernard was always a brilliant character and proper lad. Some great fond memories.
Our sincerest condolences to all his friends and family.

Bernard Baxter

Just heard today, the very sad news, my thoughts are with his family,

Bernard built my car/engine in the nineties and although i was a carthorse of a slow driver, it never stopped him from being professional and full of humour!

Once at Cadwell testday, after a nice slow jaunt by me around the circuit, he put my overalls and helmet on and proceeded to be second fastest on the day, much to his amusement after all the other drivers came to check what had been done to the car as it was an eight second improvement!

Top guy and a legend of classic ff1600 and never did weigh me in for setting him on the road to an engine building business

RIP

Bernard's nephew Craig owns TGS Tuning/TopGear Stockport and specialises in fabrication and rotary engine builds. Engine building must run in the Baxter blood.
