    Tonight RaceDepartment Forums will have some downtime for maintenance. The process will start around 19:00 GMT and we can't give an exact estimation how long it will take. (probably 1 hour, maybe a little more)


    What will be changed (read carefully):
    • vBulletin will be upgraded to the latest version 4.0.1
    • The url of the forum will change:
      • forum.racedepartment.com will become obsolete
      • please bookmark www.racedepartment.com as your new url to enter RD
      • all backlinks to the forum will be lost so it will take some time before google and other search engines to update our status
      • possibility that internal links on the forum will not longer work properly (we don't know yet)
    • Some small maintenance on the database and tables
    When the forum is down please use our facebook page as a temporary backup solution: http://www.facebook.com/#/pages/RaceDepartment/110500706658?ref=ts
