Sad news

His classic commentary will always live on though, particularly as more and more archive material gets released.

Sad news indeed.

Mike is my childhood memories of Bathurst.

Thoughts are with his family & friends... Mike will live on in the memories of all Australian motor sport fans & every replay of Bathurst in the 70's/80's.

For me, hearing his voice is as synonymous with that era as hearing Fanfare for the Common Man. Both take me instantly back to Those Great Days.

RIP, and condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

So very, very sad.

Made Australian TV motorsport commentary what it is - informative and entertaining with the odd funny gaffe.

Used do see him mowing his lawn sometimes. I guess I'll stop looking for him every time I drive past his house, now.

The sound of Bathurst from my childhood. He really bought colour and life to motorsport in a way no others have before or since

I look back on coverage from Evan Greene and find it quite boring by comparison

Some great childhood memories from Mike. Such a shock that we lost him quite sudden and rather young. A fond memory is this one with Dick Johnson:

Can understand that, after working under him for so many years.

RIP Mike

Don’t forget that he was heavily involved in the now defunct Liverpool Speedway, back when speedway was drawing big crowds.

Don’t forget his catchcry for the tv commercials when the Big Ed Wilbur lead USA sedan team came out to Australia - the no hankee pankee yankee’s up against the Australians at place of pace Liverpool Speedway!


Horsepower reigns at Symmons Plains.

Some of his old Liverpool Speedway commercials are on YouTube.

All of this. Just hearing his voice would get me running into the TV room, even if it was just an ad for Parra Speedway, or a 60 second bit on the news.

RIP Mike, you were, and are a bloody legend.
