    RACEDEPARTMENT was originally conceived as the RPM Racing Community and later developed and expanded through our merger with RaceSimCentral.

    There are many rumours, some say even the pyramids have RD chambers in them. Mayans also used "R" and "D" words in their paintings. According to professor Hengestein, there are signs in the middle of Stonehenge which resemble the logo of RD. Let's just say it is ancient.

    Or it is Bram's membership date, but that one is boring to believe.

    I joint 2008. Didn't know what SimRacing was and when I googled it, RD was the first hit.

    Under our first name RPM the site was first online on its own domain on 26 December 2006. Before this date we were on a free hosting solution.

    In March 2008 we adopted the new name RaceDepartment..

    In a few weeks time the site will be eight years old. *sigh*. Time flies :(

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace

    And you were in a clan as well, and you merged with some guys and then became RD ;)

    ---

    You can also celebrate the success RD has had in these eight years, it has certainly grown! :D

    We didn't merge with anyone. We were asked to setup the racing side of RaceSimCentral in 2007 and basically locked down our good old RPM site just for members of the original racing team.

    When the RSC forum died and didn't come back online we moved back here with the new name and continued the racing for everybody, not just the original team members.

    The RPM team is still alive though but we are a bit rusty, but will return in the V-GT series in 2015 :)
