This is the easiest way for our server. But you can use this tutorial for every non-freezone server you know, but you need the server login for this trick. Just copy the following link and change the server login at the end. After this you can paste it into your browser address line.
The browser will ask you if you want to use the Trackmania client to handle the request, you can continue.
This window will a bit look like this (I've a german Firefox browser, as you can see):
The game will start, you should log in with your data. For a short time, a message will appear that the server was added to the list successfully.
EDIT: Please note that the limit of servers in the favourite server list is 5 for free accounts. Thanks to Monika for this advice. If the list is full, you can delete the servers manually via the player page. In the second How-To on this page you will find a little second tutorial how to delete favourite servers manually.
Because the list may not refresh itself, you may have to restart the game. This step isn't required always.
Look in your favourite list, you will find the Weekly Short Hunt server. Now you can join the server.
That's it! Now you can play on your favourite servers, even if the FreeZone is not working correctly or the server doesn't have FreeZone.

If you don't know it yet, there is a page named "Player page" to manage your TMF account. To get to this page, you can click on the following link:
Now the tutorial:
Use your TMF login information. Don't fear to do it, this is an official site from Nadeo.
