Donation drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'RACE 07 Racing Club & Leagues' started by Eric Nelson, Aug 27, 2010.

  1. To all who race at the American Racing Club I have a proposal that is open to any member of RD.

    Donations are needed and ESSENTIAL to keeping RD going and providing the level of service you have come to enjoy. While most of us run here for free, I would ask you to give back to those who give to you.

    If you can find the means, I would encourage you to donate each month if possible. Any amount is appreciated and accepted!

    However, to help generate some interest, I am going to add some VALUE to your donation.

    If you donate just $10, I will create an event in YOUR NAME and run whatever track you choose on any available date!!!!! I will provide in the race announcement, a simple biography and a short interview with you as well! ie. the "RD MEMBER 125K @ WATKINS GLEN" If possible, you will receive an RDONATOR SKIN for your car at this event as well!

    Guys it is essential that we raise money or it could potentially change server availablilty in the future. RD doesn't run on love yet we all love RD! It requires money to keep going as you know it.

    If you donate $10 and race 10 times in a month, you paid one dollar per race! Hell you can't drive an ARCADE racing game against some snot nosed 12 year old for less than that price! And you don't have to deal with the taunting and disrespectful looks when he schools you in front of his 5 friends!:tongue:

    So I appeal to you the RD ARC racing member to donate now! Not only do you get that really nice "RDonator" tag next to your name, but you'll be helping RD provide YOU with the Sim Racing experience you enjoy!

    Show the RD community why the "North Americans" have the best club spirit!

    Just click on the DONATE NOW on the top of this page next to the Donation bar in green, PM me that you'd like a race in your name and we will set it up ASAP!Make a note in your donation at PAYPAL that you donated on behalf of the ARC!

    thanks for your help guys!

  2. I recently stopped playing Football manager Live with is known as a massive multiplayer online game and it was a subscription of £5 a month to play.

    That now is going to RD as I use it more, provides me with forums that dont have those annoying google adverts etc, quality servers and events and also a Teamspeak server which I absolutely hammer every week.
     
  3. For the amount of time I spend on servers, forums and Teamspeak, I get my money's worth out of RD for sure! I'll donate. I have donated in the past but that RD Donator sign disappears after a while.

    Just a suggestion, add in the link for donations in your post Eric. Thanks for your work on this and on our commuity.

    You can count on me. I need to get in the habit of paying monthly as RD is WELL WORTH IT!
    I got my car / track combo picked out already! ;)
     
  5. A new wrinkle from the Donation Drive. I have offered a gentlemen's challenge to the Euro Club to beat our donations for the month of September! Hoping a "Challenge Meter" can be hosted in the forums.

    MAke a note in your doantion at PAYPAL that you donated from the ARC!!!!

    first - i dont have a job [cuz im 14] so therefore am too young for a paypal and mum thinks that its a load of wasted money 2 dontae to rd - i disagree but i dont have once myself so cant donate for another 2 years minimum
    second - what about the people wo do both erc and arc ?
    which side of the challenge are they?
     
  7. Mike,

    they would be on whatever side they NOTE in their donation. Frankly, if you live in North America, then you clearly are ARC status.

    The others, may choose whichever they like I suppose. NO matter really. We all win in the end............

    Don';t sweat the donation Mike. I am sure you would gladly donate if it were possible for you.
     
  8. I would say if you are classified EURO due to location, but race more frequently in the ARC then you be under ARC.

    Ill also step up for an event possibly next week as I just donated another $12.

    I think for car selection WTCCX @ KW SuperSpeedway....i would like to run it on a night that my buddy Adam Vaughan is able to race so we can carry on with our drafting fun :)
     
  9. I am so in... but so many choices... this may require a lot of donations... :cool:.
     
  10. keith: That's my pick too so there will be more than one chance to run that combo. Alternatively, i may decide to take them to the Monza 10 K for a 250 or 500k event.
     
  11. I will definitely be donating as soon as the next month starts. I'm getting sooooo much value out of RD

    "If you donate $10 and race 10 times in a month, you paid one dollar per race! Hell you can't drive an ARCADE racing game against some snot nosed 12 year old for less than that price!

    "

    Ha! That's a good way to put it
     
  12. eeegads Willie thats a $20 event for sure! LOL

    if i was able to donate i would pick s2000 at somewhere with about a 1 min - 1.10 laptime, valer for example, for a really long enduro like 100 laps or so if that would be possible
     
  14. still only £15
     
  15. I was just thinking, did we not run 18 laps x 2 at the recent GT pro event, a 500k event would only be 14 laps more than that or another 28 mins. I guess that the extremes will lap more quickly than the GT pros.
     
  16. Which track Willie? MOnza 10K? We have run a MINI ENDURO at Le Mans but it went ratehr poorly for many since that is such a tough track.


    We can do it for sure but the track has to be appropriate
     
  17. Absolutely Monza 10k
     
  18. yes it could be arranged if you wanted this as your "DONATION EVENT"
     
  19. Is there ANY way to donate by snail mail or through someone else. Paypal is not an option, although I really want to contribute and feel terrible running with those who do. Would like to donate an entire year at once, monthly would be impossible as work loads vary.

    Watching that GT1 race today put such a huge smile on my face, that was worth the donation alone! Sure do miss Speedvision!
     
  20. Man you said SPEEDVISION! the best racing channel EVER! Til NASCAR go tinvolved with the major networks...killed that channel.......
