    Welcome Back everyone. Sorry it's taken so long to get the forum up and running, no doubt you are all wondering what happened.

    In brief, our hosting provider VAServ were hacked last Sunday evening (7th June). Many of their servers were corrupted. See news article on The Register for more details.

    The Register - Webhost hack wipes out data for 100,000 sites

    It took our hosts a couple of days to check their servers, give us the bad news that ours was unrecoverable and provide us with a new server.

    Vectra-Sport has been restored from our last good backup, which was taken at 4am on Sunday 7th of June. Any posts, PMs, changes to your profile or registrations made between 4am and when the server went offline on Sunday evening have been lost.

    We were unable to recover attachments, Gallery and Classified Ad photos - you'll have to re-upload those from the original copies that you have on your PC awww

    Please use the support forum should you need to report anything and we will look into it for you.

    On behalf of the rest of the team, we thank you for your patience and ongoing support.

    Andre
