NoGripRacing.com Is Down

Update 2018-06-13: Sorry, no good news to share, but I did want to re-share the Nogripracing.com gone? thread over on RaceDepartment.com. Looks like more and more nogripgracing.com members and fans have been migrating over there. Don’t forget about the European Endurance Center which is also an excellent resource and alternative site for most of the things you could find on NoGrip. Don’t worry about their somewhat tedious signup process, they’re friendly enough and the site is worth it.

Update 2018-06-04: A user by the name of wibble has posted over at RaceDepartment.com about the the situation indicating the hosting contract has expired but they have a full backup of all the data on the server. I replied with some questions and asked if there were any way we fans and members could help out. It sounds like there is a past due hosting bill situation and, if that’s the case, I am personally willing to contribute to help pay off the bill and get the server hosted elsewhere. Please leave a comment if you’d like to help keep nogripracing.com alive!

Members and fans of nogripracing.com will probably have noticed by now that the site is down. I first noticed the site as down May 30th. If you are the owner, know the owner, or have news of the downtime I’d appreciate hearing what’s going on.

At this point, the downtime has gone on a few days and it’s looking less likely that it will come back, although I’ll be delighted if it does! NoGrip hosts many downloads for many different sims.

You can find alternatives to nogripracing.com at RaceDepartment.com and the European Endurance Center (which also serves general sim racing purposes), eSport-Racing.de (non-English language but you can work your way around). If you know of any others, please leave them in the comments, thank you!

Best of luck to NoGripRacing! I really hope it makes a comeback. The site really served an important niche not really served by anybody else.

If you are the owner or know the owner please let them know that I’d be happy to provide mirror hosting for the site if they’re having issues with hosting.

  1. FWIW, a little snooping (Accessify and Whois sites) reveals little about nogripracing. It changed ownership in Feb. 2014 and “public access to Nogripracing ownership data is restricted due to privacy matters”; previous owner was Eamonn O’Doherty. Domain is registered through GoDaddy to “Registration Private Domains By Proxy, LLC” and doesn’t expire til Jan 2019. Since June 2015 they have been hosted by OVH SAS in France.

    1. Thanks for the heads up. News is painfully slow from those who know what’s going on. I’d love to help get the site back up.

    1. Your support is definitely appreciated. Not looking good so far, though, no news, nobody seems willing to come forward with options, sadly.

  2. Same here. I gladly would donate a bit too being a member there for years. Would be kinda sad to lose that site. Btw. has anyone got the HAT files for GTR 2 track Cannonball Run!? I urgently need those to make it work it seems.

    1. Glad to hear there’s some support for this. Sorry can’t help you with the HAT files thing. Try posting on RaceDepartment or EEC, though, I’m sure somebody could point you in the right direction.
