Hi everyone! As you've probably noticed, the amount of updates on the main site has been going down and down over the past few years. This is down to both Mike and myself having less and less time to spare for the site, and, with both of us moving out of Scotland over this summer, thus being unable to regularly attend Knockhill any more, this situation will obviously deteriorate.
With that in mind, we've decided that the main site itself is to be closed, and "ScottishClubRacing.co.uk" will now be the forum only - there is much less need for a website featuring the racing now as there was when we formed this site (the SMRC site is nowadays very informative and useful!), and for a long time the forum has been the centre of everything anyway, so this is a fairly natural evolution.
We will however be extending the forum with a new Articles section, which shall contain all the old race reports, features, interviews etc, and leave room for more to be added in the future if possible - we don't want to lose the more interesting parts of the main site, and feel the articles can be well preserved in this way on the forum. The Driver profiles section will sadly have to go - it was a good idea to begin with but ended up very messy with most profiles several years out of date, and I can't see an easy way to solve that issue or transfer it to the forum.
Hopefully the forum will continue to be as active and alive as it's been lately - any feedback or suggestions are very welcome!
Can I just support Norm's comments Think you both have done a fabulous job in building a superb community where people can share and exchange opinions. In some ways its a little sad, but also makes so much sense too. All the very best to you both and many many thanks for making this forum the hooge success it has, and hopefully, will continue to be!
Sad to see it go, I only stopped reading it when Mike and Catriona's great reporting dwindled away due to other commitments. No doubt you'll direct your writing talents in other directions. Good luck and thanks for everything.
I've only just read this and am glad to hear that the site will still be available in one way or another. The forum was always the part I used the most and I've only recently started using it again - forgot how much good chat there was in here :-)
Thanks for the kind words everyone - my move is pretty much confirmed now (house references gone through ok, contracts being signed imminently!) so I'll likely be switching the domain over to point at the forum in the next couple of weeks; I've tried to leave the old site up as long as possible in case anybody wants one last look at any of it!
Ok the domain is now redirected to the forum - if anyone really wants to look at the old pages they're still online at www.knockhill.plus.com/scr but I can't guarantee how long they'll last for - also the pictures have mainly been removed to save on webspace.
Thanks for all the good times we've had with this website, here's hoping the forum will continue for plenty more time
