We will update about the Andy Hallbery cause of death once we get the information from the right source.
Who was Andy Hallbery?
Andy Hallbery was a former editor for Autosport and RACER magazines.
He developed his passion for racing while attending grand Prix events throughout Europe and seeing the speedway at Wembley as a child.
When he was a student at the London College of Printing, he was fascinated by the Brabham squad and formed a fanzine.
When he went in for a job interview in 1986 to become an editorial assistant at Autosport, this was his resume.
Long nights at the typesetters were necessary for the magazine’s production, but he was able to race in the Ford Fiesta Challenge and the Mondello Park 2CV 24 Hours.
GM Lotus Euro series
Since most of the races in the GM Lotus Euro series were on the grand Prix support schedule and Hallbery loved it, he switched Mallory Park for Monaco.
He had a unique set of drivers in 1990, according to history, when Rubens Barrichello won the championship, with Gil de Ferran and David Coulthard following closely behind.
His happiest years followed as he travelled over Europe with the DTM. Dario recalls:
“We had a ball from Helsinki to Hockenheim and a spin on the Nordschleife in my company Mercedes.”
He was allowed to lead Haymarket’s new Special Assignments department in 1992 after being promoted to editor, which meant less travel and more work on his plate.

However, he quickly realized that his experience was better suited to working on editorial projects. Starting with the Stars & Cars magazine for Mercedes, where he famously recreated the Oasis What’s The Story Morning Glory? cover image very early one morning in London with Dario Franchitti, the job sparked his creative juices.
Hallbery’s transition to Racer magazine in California in 2001 marked the largest shift in his professional career to date.
As he followed the Indycar route, it not only brought him to tracks he had only imagined, but it also brought him back together with Franchitti and de Ferran.
Dario Franchitti said,
“Andy was there the morning after my first Indy 500 win organizing a photo in which I was surrounded by milk bottles and had a painted-on milk moustache. Only for Andy would I do that.”
Although there were many highs, losing good friends like Greg Moore and Dan Wheldon brought about some extremely deep lows.
Even though Bryan Herta preferred Depeche Mode, the two established a bond through their shared love of music.
Since moving back to the UK, Hallbery has written two outstanding books, including The Romance of Racing, which he co-wrote with Dario, and Lionheart, which is about Wheldon’s triumphs in the Indy 500.
In the UK, he recently loved returning to the grassroots level. In November, he attended the Walter Hayes Trophy race at Silverstone on a gloomy day.
Alongside his racing career, he relocated to Cardiff and attended concerts at least once a week while soaking it all in.
Hallbery led a fulfilling life, was well-liked and was regarded as an expert in his field.

“That’s sad news, enjoyed his writing, especially his support of Indycar racing over many years and more recently via twitter.”
Fraser Masfield tweeted,
“Terrible shock. Gave me my first Haymarket interview and job and even helped me on a recent F1 book project. Owe him so much.”
Richard Northen tweeted,
“So sorry to hear this. I only worked briefly for Andy at Haymarket, but he was a thoroughly good bloke who went out of his way to make me feel welcome there. My thoughts are with his family.”
One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must have a destination at the end. The person’s time on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have died.
We wish him eternal peace and send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones, family, friends. May he rest in peace.
