Touring Car Racing.net no more?

It seems the late Frank de Jong's Touringcarracing.net website is no more. I get a 404 'the following error occurred:
The requested URL was not found on this server.
Please check the URL or contact the webmaster.'

Any one heard any news on the future of this wonderful resource. Has it been taken over by another website? It is as simple as a new url? When Frank passed it was announced the website would continue, but ....

Hopefully it is a temporary glitch but if anyone has any news different please advise.

I get this issue too. We'll wait a few days to see if it comes back. If not, we'll have to restore it via alternative means (like downloading the site through WebArchive) and host it like with the Formula2 site.

What PT says.
If nothing happens, we might want to get in touch with Hans/Guido Fohr who continued the project when Frank de Jong passed away.
I still have their email addresses if needed.

I hope site will return online. It will be great shame to lose it.

There's possibility that someone forgot to pay for domain. Motorsport Memorial, for example, had this problem last year and was offline for about a day.
