F1 Fanatic gets an upgrade
Apologies for the interruption to service from F1 Fanatic yesterday afternoon which was due to planned maintenance.
We are now running on a substantially upgraded system, some aspects of which still needed to be fine-tuned, but which should ultimately deliver a better experience for all F1 Fanatic users in terms of speed, reliability and security.
I’d like to take this opportunity to again thank F1 Fanatic’s many Supporters who have helped make this upgrade possible. I am incredibly grateful for your contributions.
