It is with great sadness that the AAMC has learned of the passing of Mr. Barry Bland. The AAMC would like to convey its deepest condolences to Mr. Bland’s family and many friends.


Mr. Bland’s contribution to the success of the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix was immense. In 1983, he played a crucial role in the decision to bring Formula 3 to the Grand Prix and, as entries coordinator, for more than 30 years he ensured the race included the most promising young drivers in the world.


The AAMC worked closely with Mr. Bland over the decades, and his experience and guidance were greatly valued. We will be fondly remembered for his kindness, wisdom and his unfailing passion for the sport of motor racing.


Mr. Bland died on July 5 at home in the United Kingdom aged 71 following an illness. He is survived by his wife Irmgard and their sons Chris, Alex and Ben.
