    As the Title says what's your best Freebie?

    This doesn't include birthdays or Christmas or any other public holiday.

    Mine is a CORBEAU Forza Sport Racing Seat :) And i got this entirely free along with a ticket to go to Goodwood festival of speed.

    This will soon become my racing seat :)

    Its perfect condition like new with no scaggs or rips in fabric and only thing that's wrong with it is one of the plastic pieces on the side is coming off but that can be glued back on :)

    had a few freebies over the years, some very nice like a signed copy of a book by Jackie Steward or from my second visit to Gleneagles a shooting school pewter hipflask and also some tacky crap from various sources but perhaps my most used freebie is a little Victorinox Swiss army knife that i got from Ford at the Mondeo launch party in 1993, the Mondeo writing on the side of it is long gone but the knife is still going great and used almost every day :)

    Tickets to the World Series by Renault event at Silverstone - apply for them online and they send them to you for free! A full day's racing with full access to the grandstands and paddock for absolutely nothing! :D

    No but i'm not bitter. My family was very, very poor around that time so a new car was really a miracle for us. We took a trip to Norway and then my dad changed it for an older and bigger 1973 model 99.. He drove with it until 1998 until things started to look better.. It was as good as new still..

    I've had so much support from them over the years anyway so i think i have got it at least three times:wink2:

    A 7900gt graphics card in 2006 when I won a really easy competition. I made a video in less than a day, everyone else submitted a couple of lines of text :D. Bargain.

    £200. You can't beat money :D. For winning at Forza2 on (the now defunct) Xleague TV.

    Oh and I got a free copy of FM2 (one day before release, didn't I feel special), for walking some journalists through Forza 2 at Silverstone. That was an awesome day....*sigh*
