    Hello fellow racers,

    In the next few days you may notice that the forum is sometimes not accessible. The reason is that we are attempting the switch over to a new hosting company. It was hoped that any outage could be avoided, but it may now be inevitable.
    The problem should be resolved in a short time, but this being Easter, it's bad timing and it may drag on for a few days more than expected. So if you see the message below, this is the explanation:

    You can keep an eye on what's happening on the SRP FaceBook page:

    This temporary outage does not affect the dedicated server, so even if you can't reach the forums, racing is not cancelled. TeamSpeak also will not be affected.

    SRP Management apologise for this inconvenience and hope that it does not affect anyone adversely.

    Things progressed so slowly over the Easter weekend that there will now DEFINITELY be some down time. We expect the site to be inaccessible for about 24 hours or more from tonight (Monday 21st April) until some time tomorrow, possibly Wednesday.
    The dedicated server and TeamSpeak are still unaffected.

    Here we are, almost exactly one year later, and once again we must make the same announcement:

    Hello fellow racers,

    In the next few days you may notice that the forum is sometimes not accessible. The reason is that we are attempting the switch over to a new hosting company. It is inevitable that there will be some downtime during today (Monday 20th April) and tomorrow (Tuesday 21st April).
    You may find that posts which are created during this time will have disappeared when the forum returns. We therefore recommend that you DO NOT POST any really important stuff until this period is over.

    As always, you can keep an eye on what's happening on the SRP FaceBook page:

    This temporary outage does not affect the dedicated server, so even if you can't reach the forums, racing is not cancelled. TeamSpeak also will not be affected.

    The forums are now back. You will have noticed that there is no front page at the moment (www.simracingpro.com takes you to the main forum page), but that will return after it has been integrated correctly with the new hosting.

    Thanks for bearing with us during what turned out to be only around 24h of downtime. :cool:

    We are aware that some posts have gone missing during the unexpected outage yesterday, 2nd May. Posts or threads which went up between 03:00 and 14:00 on Friday 1st May are not showing at the moment.
    We are working to resolve this; it may be possible to restore them from the records.

    On the bright side, members who registered using gmail accounts are now receiving notifications again.

    You may have noticed it's not possible to upload files? This is because we have not yet successfully integrated the content management system we use. This will also be resolved soon. In the meantime, please host your files elsewhere and post a link.

    We apologise for the inconvenience.

    There will be a short period in the early hours of tomorrow (Thursday 14th May) when the forums will not be accessible:

    Downtime = 15 minutes, at around 01:00GMT

    An announcement will follow when we're back in business.

    The forums are back up again. There is still no front page yet, because the decision has been made to implement a different system which will work better and more seamlessly. This will take more time of course, but will be of benefit to everyone.
    Updates will follow.
