    Greetings from Finland! Opposite to what you may believe we have no polar bears walking around the streets, but there's supposed to be an iceman somewhere out there =)

    I've just picked up my old interest in driving sims and pc-racing again after some years raising up a few kids and all that stuff. I'm a complete rookie when it comes to online racing, but i've been lurking around here for a while and this seems like a good place to start learning. At the moment for me it's mostly DIRT Rally and Assetto Corsa varied with some Project CARS.

    Hope to see you guys and girls on the track soon!

    Ps. The premium holiday offer says 9,99€ for a year but i couldn't find the normal price nor the price that will apply after the holiday offer year?

    Welcome to RD!

    Online racing is very good, and even better with the right environment! I'm sure you will find this here.

    If you want some AC lessons I can certainly help you in the AC club! Check out our races here:
    http://www.racedepartment.com/forums/assetto-corsa-racing-club-leagues.171/

    And for other races check out the calendar, as I'm more into the AC side of things.

    About the premium price, the normal one was 20E before the promotion, don't know for how long it is going to keep on that price. Maybe @Bram can give you some insight on that.

    See you on track!

    Hi Welcom to RD! :)

    It has been at €20 and €15 in the past year and around the €10 mark for the past couple of months. We try to keep it as low as possible to maintain our servers and services. If we can get down to €0.50 at some point we will. We've done a little shuffling recently and managed to keep it down for a while but a typical worst case scenario would be around €15-20. In short the more people who subscribe the lower we can offer it for.

    Ha ha. I'm browsing at the office (don't tell my boss though) constantly switching between this site and the UPS package tracking site to follow my CSW base and wheelhub on their journey ;) Thanks for the welcome!

    Meh, you know what I mean! :D :D As you can tell, the BigMac was taking most of my attention at the time of writing....

    For those who are interested, I got an 8 pack of socks for £6.00. Wicked.

    Sweet! I'll bolt a 350mm Momo wheel on the hub for now. Estimated delivery is tomorrow, and the last logging is from Glostrup, Denmark yesterday evening, so fingers crossed here.
