A sad day.

Hi all. Not good news. I have to announce the passing of an absolute legend that is Maxster. He'd been battling cancer for a year now and it's finally got the better of him. Miss you already mate. Rip.

Have just seen this on Facebook.

Maxster was truly one of the great guys of this site and the one who I always had fun racing. He was a true gent and a great team mate back at TfR.

Truly saddened by this loss.

Anything we can send offering our condolences?

I've just seen the sad news in my fb feed. So sad. Whilst I never met Steve in person, he was one of the good guys, someone who welcomed me to this forum with open arms. You were a gent and will be missed by all your friends and family Maxster. RIP my friend.

Such a shame and my thoughts go out to those close to him.

He put up with me and that says a lot about him.

I feared this was coming soon when you said on Friday that he'd gone into the hospice. At least he is at peace now. Just got to remember all the races we had over the years... including the one he completed despite having 3 hornets buzzing around him in the conservatory - I'd have been out of there like a shot, never mind the Xbox!

I'm not on Facebook, but if you get chance to send condolences to his family please pass on mine as well.

A truly sad day. Maxster was a great guy to race with and through FM3 and 4 I had many good laughs with him. The world is a little worse off today.

RIP Max.

Thanks to Woody for messaging me on XBL to let me know this otherwise i probably woudnt have found out for ages. Really gutting to hear this. Im not about much on the racing scene anymore but i used to race with him if i remember right as far back as FM2 and onto 3 and bit of 4 with all the old crew IE Slim, Tank & Spanners etc. Top guy and good banter. A sad day indeed.

RIP Max

Oh dear, I only just found out, really sad, he was a true gent/nice guy, raced with him and chatted many times, he'll be sadly missed. Maxter mate, if you read this, you still owe me a paint job lol, catch up with you one day perhaps. thanks for the good nights racing & chatting in the past. RIP Maxter.
