    Great news! I hope some people will be tempted… I must admit I was considering getting premium but have not taken the plunge until "someone" offered me kindly my first year (thanks again for this nice gift btw!). I am hooked up since then: really happy with the racing here, and the friendly talks on TeamSpeak! The Driver Academy has been priceless too: it really brought me a lot, even if there is room for a lot more improvement…:rolleyes: So I have been really happy to renew my membership after one year, and still enjoy it!
    So with this deal, it sounds even better. Good value for many evenings of racing… :)

    I just bought it some weeks ago to enter the mini championship! Made a race last week and will do another today!

    For that money is worth to have servers where people enjoy racing more than voluntary crashing others. Is less than 1€/month, and today even cheaper!

    Keep it up!

    @Bram @Tobias Röhner Guys, for regular customers like us, there should be an option to avail this offer today, so that we don't have to fork out 10 EUROs whenever our subs run out, when we can get it 2.5 EUROS cheaper today?

    Hey... wait up! Premium Member

    Man oh man.. Guys, how can you resist? It's like one cheap DLC for one of your sims, or like a Pizza and a coke, at least in Denmark.
    And in return you get one whole year of the amazing benefits described above. AND you help keeping this fantastic place in running order. Dont think twice if you havent gone premium. JUST DO IT

    As someone here just for forum games (ive let the side down by not playing racing games, sorry guys) I'm debating if going premium would be worth it :(

    Regular customers like us know what RD is about and know that it is worth the €10,- this is an action aimed at those (like @gilles13 who should definitely do it :rolleyes:) not familiar with RD's club.

    No, probably not. That is unless you feel like contributing to this great racing club and extremely useful place.;):thumbsup: The price is a no brainer. Its cheaper than pint of beer in some London pups for Effs sake.

    Being in Newcastle, i wouldnt know ;)
    However I do feel inclined to support the staff purely because they've done a great job maintaining this community, and as @Paul Jeffrey said, its less than a McDonald's, i suppose it may also motivate me into getting some racing games, even if its just F1 16 or something!
    consider me converted lads
    EDIT - sorted :thumbsup:

    That feels good doesn't it. Well done mate. I suggest trying RaceRoom Racing Experience. If you have a PC steering wheel that is, because its free with some cars and tracks.:thumbsup:

    Don't be cheap guys ... wait few days and get it for full price.... 2.5 euro wont make a difference for you but 2.5 euro multiplied by 'a lot' could help RD a bit ...:) im starting black friday protest!

  18. I think I'll wait a few days, a bunch of times. I wouldn't want to feel bad about my buying at the lower price.
