AUTOSPORT cartoonist Jim Bamber passes away

Renowned motorsport artist and long-time AUTOSPORT cartoonist Jim Bamber has passed away after a long battle against cancer.

A former art editor of CAR magazine and Autocourse, Jim's well-loved cartoons became a weekly staple of AUTOSPORT magazine, and his impishly satirical weekly views also featured on the AUTOSPORT.com website.

Bamber's rally-based Yumping Yarns and Formula 1 series of books, The Pits, were also fan favourites over the past three decades.

Jim passed away peacefully on Friday afternoon at St Christopher's hospice, where he had spent the past few weeks.

The next issue of AUTOSPORT magazine will feature a full tribute to Jim and a selection of his classic cartoons
