Dedicating an editorial to someone who’s leaving the team isn’t something I’ve done before.
The work environment is an ever-evolving place and, although it rarely happens at CAR, we lose and gain team members.
This man, though, deserves to be singled out. As the deputy to two different editors, Mike Fourie has epitomised what this magazine is about. He has led by example with his in-depth automotive knowledge, his professionalism both in the way he conducts himself and his dedication to the craft, and the respect he has earned from peers.
For 14 years, this big-hearted guy has been Mr CAR. Alongside Mike’s integrity and work ethic ex- ists an unquenched love for all things automotive … especially if it has an Alfa Romeo or BMW badge on the front. You can read his take on his time at CAR magazine in a column on page 26.
Mike, you will be sorely missed and you leave a large pair of shoes for your successor to fill. We wish you every success in your new endeavour!
