    If an iRacing series were to start on RaceDepartment and you didn't already own all the content to take part, how much would you be prepared to spend to run a full series?

    ****Edit - please read

    For those that choose one of the first three options have you bought the tracks required for any of the 'D Class' road series?

    I voted - whatever is required - but I have all but about 6 ovals and have all the cars. I'd love to do trucks or sprint cup cars on ovals. Star Mazda's, MX-5's, DP's, Corvettes, Mustangs on road courses. After a few attempted laps in the Williams my crew won't let me near the car. :)

    Well I would buy things but I'm just not sure how much. I say that due to my having only the F1 beginner pack, and just for giggles I added everything to the cart the other day and with discounts it was going to run me over $500. That I'm not willing to do since I had to get a wheel and will be getting the G27 when I can get one in stock. Plus I like my nose where it is and if I paid that much my wife may move it for me...lol I will be able to do say a season and car at a time but not everything at once.

    I own everything at the moment and I'll continue to do so to keep my 25% discount on everything.

    Same here, own all road tracks, will not buy any oval.
    Do not own all cars though, most probably not going to buy them. E.g. I have the Star Mazda, but will not buy another open wheeler (I like to drive them, but not to race them, to fragile).

    For those that answered to the $15 and $15 - $30 ranges have you bought the tracks required for the 'D' road series?

    I'll update my first post as it could make a lot of difference to organising venue's for a series.

    I already own all of the road tracks and most of the oval. Their are a few popular tracks that most iracers own or will mostly buy. Starting with those and some of the D class tracks may help ensure we have a good turn out for events. Maybe even tossing in some of the base cars like the spec ford.

    I will be willing to buy all the tracks that the open wheel cars run on. I may have to do it a few tracks at a time but those I will have for sure. However sooner or later I'm sure I will have bought everything on iracing including all the nascar stuff as well. I just have to and pick choose for the moment as money is a bit tight. If you know how that goes.

    I'm one of the two voters that selected $15. That's mainly due to the fact that I already own all road content and most of the oval stuff. Therefore I have set my priorities already and would not be willing to invest in too many additional stuff I'm rarely gonna use. And I thought it would be better for fresh members to join when the required content is somewhat reasonable.

    Therefore: I do have all D-License content.

    I intend on having 100% content at some point in the future and am currently 9 tracks (all ovals) and 6 cars short of that objective.

    I'm certainly not the quickest racer, but enjoy racing especially here with the RD community, so am happy to purchase what is required (if I don't already have it).

    Maybe, I have all somewhen in the future. But as a principle, I buy only stuff I need for the official iRacing series. So, club races with official content are ok for me. I will not do a series with content I don't own.

    Keeping in mind that i do have a fair bit of content altough its spread out on both RC and Ovals

    So it kinda depends a track or 2 i would not mind so i guess that makes it option 3

    I am willing to buy a track or two here and there. If a series consists of a bunch of tracks I don't have than I wont really bother.
