GRID PC is a really nice game but it's one of the games which were abandoned the moment they went gold. Very little support was given, the developer and publisher kept promising patches and fixes that they never delivered, so it comes as no surprise that multiplayer servers had such short lifespan, actually it's 2 years more than i would give it. And it isn't really big loss, because the multiplayer was broken from start, it was really painful to navigate through the menu system to connect to a server, and when you did, often the request would just time out and you'd be thrown at the beggining of the whole process. Ranked servers sometimes counted your progress, sometimes not, no idea why. On servers with enabled player collisions, half of the people would try to grief by driving in opposite way, trying to crash other players, on servers with collisions off cheating was widespread, in every race there was always someone using speed hacks where you would see the cars simply teleporting long distances forward. There was very little point to multiplayer, so everybody playing it pretty much just stick with the singleplayer mode which was really nice.
