Not sure how many Race players there are here, but you might be interested in a way to play online.
The Genie Game Server has an implementation of Race (including Gathering Storm expansion) available to play as a PBEM style. It supports 2-4 players, including 2 player advanced, and has a simple but easy to use interface. Rio Grande Games have given it their blessing, so I doubt it will suddenly disappear anytime soon.
My nick is Torq on there also, so anyone who is interested hit me up for some games.
