Hi Gang,

We have no more funds (I know that feeling, the last invoice from the hosting company hitting my own bank account actually put me overdrawn !), so we shall be waving the forum off into the digital sunset come October 10th.

It's been fun.

I tried.

A huge thanks for all that supported my efforts to keep it going.

To all those that screamed and shouted that they wanted a new forum when the original was killed of by it's over zealous owner, and then never used it.... also thanks - but of a different kind ;-)

If you do want to keep this resource alive and well - £8.40 gets a months worth of hosting.

See the Paypal section at the bottom of the main page or donate to admin@gpoc.co.uk

Cheers - Dave.B

Dave as with many of the older car type forums, fb, twitter and other social media sites have taken over and killed so many off
I have noticed over the last week or so since I joined the lack of posts, the site is dead, don't waste your own money any more

well done for all your efforts

I have to say i bought my mini gp this year thinking it would be a very active scene like the ford rs i came from but im shocked how dead it is. Well done in your efforts to keep it going but i think donating a few pounds is only delaying the inevitable which is sad. Times are changing and i dont like it. All the best to gp owners.

Serious... this is sad. Not even a MINI dealer or importer who can support this?

I made my own topic of my GP0953.
Do you still have. Download of the forum? What is we find a section on another forum where we can put this? Work together with MINI Torque?

A stay of execution has been served. We have another 2 months courtesy of the very kind Louis.

Please remember, a simple donation of £8.40 via paypal to admin@gpoc.co.uk will cover the hosting charge for this forum.

We don't insist that you pay a club subscription or anything like that, but if we do start receiving excess funds we can look at starting to re-offer things like Club T-Shirts, stickers, branded socks and pants, pens, keyrings etc etc like we used to do in the past.
