Lucky me! I found out about this game not long ago and wanted to give it a try. Now it's the best possible experience for me

More like giving a quick taste so they can sell more content later.
If they actually were concerned with the outbreak they could, instead, give like 1 cars and 1 track for free for the duration of the outbreak. It's not just a 2 day thing, and it's not the whole game for free either.

Sure, free to try it all so if you like it you can only buy what you need/want and use it for the rest of the time you are stuck at home. Sounds a lot better than no offer to me. And a lot better than guessing what you might like best. Are the complainers complaining about every other sim that is not offering any free access?

Or, are we supposed to be shocked that Sector 3 is a business with employees to pay and they are still trying to sell their product?

Tried a few of the cars and tracks I do not currently own...quite the mixed bag.
Stopped testing after four cars and as many tracks.
Thanks though.

Great to see increased MP activity during USA evening hours! Thank you RaceRoom. The new GT2 Porsche is a beast.

So how much of a 'free test' of iRacing, Gran Turismo Sport, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Forza, rFactor2, Automobilista, have you had lately?

Yes, there may be an underlying reason for Sector 3 doing this, and it not just related to the COVID-19 outbreak, but at least they have offered up some free track time, whereas I haven't seen many of the others doing the same.

, give like 1 cars and 1 track for free for the duration of the outbreak. .
What would the point be in adding one more car and track to the free list now?
There are already about 5 free tracks and a bunch of cars.

Blame the virus :cautious:

Sales are dwindling so they hope to hook some new users then put on a 50% ALL special

That is what i would do

I installed raceroom for the first time in 3 years, mostly because I've been TCR hungry for a while. The TCR cars are a blast to drive. But something I enjoy as much as racing, is painting the cars and helmets; which this sim doesn't allow me to do.
Also, I feel the track selection is somewhat lacking, there are several obscure tracks that should have been replaced by the likes of Circuit de Barcelona, Termas de Río Hondo, Interlagos, Kyalami, Donington Park or Some other australian track like Melbourne/Adelaide.
Anyway, I'm gonna keep racing the TCR cars until the avaliability goes back to normal, then I'll uninstall it.

I'm not saying it's a bad sim, because it's not bad. The car selection is very good, and the physics feel great; but those other 2 things are deal breakers for me.

That's not a fair comparison at all. Gran Turismo, AC, rFactor 2, many are constantly adding free content and some have much more free content than the free demo that is RaceRoom. Not only this, they don't promote themselves as "Free Racing Simulator".

And this free weekend has nothing to do with COVID19, at least not in a "we're good hearted" way. Raceroom is known for offering these free weekends from time to time, yet they chose this pandemic to offer it again claiming it's to "help with boredom in these 14 days" despite them offering free content for only 2 or 3 days. If they really wanted to help with boredom they could (and this is just an example) offer 1 car and 1 track (of our chosing) for the duration of the quarantine.

So to me it's more of a promotional move than a "we have a good heart" move. Tomorrow this good heartness ends and we still have more than a week of quarantine, maybe even more.

Just started getting into sim racing. Have to say RaceRoom feels more like a mod than a game. Tried Porsches 964, 934, BMW 635 and NSU. And they all have such a massive difference in quality. From sound to interior.

All that they achieved with their "free" promotion is the bitterness of their regular customers due to the inability to connect to the servers in these already difficult days for us all. There was a feeling that the developers went into deep isolation for at least 14 days. This decision was erroneous, but it was too late to correct something.

I only read 2-3 comments and already got sick of it.

I'll tell you something, RRRE might be the least interesting sim for me (although I have all their content), but:

SWEDS DON'T KNOW HOW TO LIE OR PLAY GAMES. They tried to help with what they can and also a bit promotion isn't wrong.
