I think we ought to allow Dora time and space right now. She must be devastated, and will have a lot of work to do now - and she may have added problems with administration as Max's family may take precedence.

I have sent Dora a text asking her to contact me should she need to talk to someone. Dora and I spent many hours MSNing as she anguished about her marriage at the time Max first entered her life. I hope that she will take my offer.

I would be honoured to organise something in his memory, but for me, Dora's needs should take priority, and sensitivity the first thing we offer.

Dora needs her time alone with family , the runs would be a great way to say goodbye to max but leave it till the summer of next year.

I think this is most appropriate; I don't have any idea of the 'past' stuff and it's really not the point. Trainman is right. A MINI Run in his memory would be great. I'm sure someone will think of a Run which would be in fitting with Max. I don't mind co-ordinating, at all by Admin purposes if anyone needs a hand. I am off at home today.

PS: I agree with Harpo that Dora probably does need space and the family some 'alone time'.

Oh boy! I've just read this Paul and I see this is about 2 miles from my house...I had heard of this but never in a million would have put the two together. I feel really sad.

Condolences to all. A tragic accident that reminds us of the fragility of life.

I totally agree with your comments Harpo.

Thats why its early days to suggest this. I just think it would be an appropriate way to remember him by.

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

Never met the guy, but reading these glowing tributes from everyone he must have been a real character, the sort that the MINI Community is based on and will no doubt sorely miss.

Condolences to all involved both as friends and family.

Well Max had been looking at doing the re-run of the Ides of March run down around Portsmouth and Alton way next March....And it was quite popular so we have been talking about doing that maybe.

i agree with paul and neil.

let things settle down a bit and those of us closer to Dora will assist with a MINI run when she wants it to happen. I think Max would have probably wanted to have a memorial run near to the old SCNM stomping ground of old days on and around the fast country lanes on salisbury plain.

this is awful, max was a great guy who organized some of the best runs over the years and his dislike of the jcw always kept me amused and its his fault i developed a mini tuning addiction after letting me drive the beast at bedford, a true gent he will be missed

minitorque.com, the site for mini performance, drag racing track days & time attack

its all change for the S, to be revealed soon
