Looks like another closed door for The Pit Lane Club
« on: August 28, 2008, 06:23:46 PM »

Its always sad news when an F1 Forum closes its doors and by the looks of it the relaunch of the pitlane club has not gone as planned.

Lets hope their admins manage to keep the site afloat or at the very least their members manage to find a great community such as ours.

Farewell Pitlane Club.

I signed up for Pit Lane chapter 2 (never had heard of it before he announced it here), but it was much a re-hash of what was said here (but with a lot fewer posts), and I didn't see the point in saying everything twice.  No Grid Game though...

Hi,

Im a new member, just registered and a refugee from The Pitlane Club (andy). After they asked if anyone wanted to continue the forum I actually offered to host it for free when it was announced it was closing but the administration didn't bother replying.

(http://thepitlaneclub.com/formula-1-racing/137-forum-danger-closing.html)

But someone else on there recommended this place, so I thought I would give it a go.

You're most welcome Andy,

Stick around, you won't find a more welcoming F1 forum anywhere (if you do then I want to know about it  :D)

Have fun!

Always great to have another new member.  I have read some of your stuff and I look forward to your comments here.  I was a member of the original pitlane forum and that really was an excellent bunch of people some of whom are still around here.

me too SD, this is the 3rd time the PitLane forum has crashed and while I do not enjoy any F1 forum going down, more time and thought how to interest and attract more activity has to be made.

our forum is hard to beat; I believe it has the right approch to robust debate and opposing opinions while prohibiting personal attacks etc.

perhaps this is why it has attracted 'real F1 fans' and is part of the reasons it flourishes; it is very well managed and moderated by knowledgable and passionate people who have built a lot of extra features into the site to cater for a range of motorsport interests and who keep thinking of ways and means to improve the mix.

so to all our moderators: well done guys and gals, we appreciate the work and thought you make in running GPWizard!

welcome andy, your 'General Disorder' nickname is brilliant btw!
