Our sympathies go to Dora and all the family.

Our paths had crossed at several events, including both MINI Uniteds, Misano was the first time we met them and then Zandvoort.

RIP

I'm still numb at this news. State of shock almost I guess.

Will miss you mate.




Big thumbs up.

I did not know Max but having read these recent posts I can gleam he was a wonderfully well respected and characterful guy who meant so much to many. I send Dora and all the family my condolences and hope you find comfort in the messages left on this and other forums.

I've met Max a few times and although things got a bit out of hand on here between him and Mini2, I always found him to be a nice decent fellow who always had time to say hello.

You'll be missed by many Max. My thought are with Dora and family.

I will not dwell further on some of the instances where there was a difference of opinion. I personally didn't have any issues with him - I remember he was an eloquent speaker who was also a bit of snazzy dresser at the Ball. From speaking with Dora in their early days I believe he was also a real gentleman.

And a lot of us know how he enjoyed the spirited side of MINI motoring - we even did a joint Maniacs/SCNM run a few years ago.

My condolences to Dora and family at this very difficult time. I know Dora doesn't come on M2 any more but would love to meet her again.

I know its early days to suggest this but with all that has gone on in the past I think that it would be a fitting tribute to Max to organise a mini run in his memory.

I don't want to go through all that has gone on before but Max was a real Mini enthusiast and thats what we all at heart are and this would be a fitting tribute!

When I nod my head...... hit it!

My condolences to Dora and his family. I didn't know Max, but I remember some of his posts and 'Mini enthusiast' is an apt tribute.

Great idea - definitely up for a tribute run - let's "Take it to the Max!"

Anyone got a copy of the route Max mapped out for us around the Devils Dyke area?

I couldnt agree more All puts it into prospective Would certainly be good to get all the old faces back together if only just for one time but I do hope all the past can be put behind everyone

Would be brilliant to see you at the Christmas Meal too http://www.scnm.co.uk/forum-t53048.html
