@Goffik do you think next time the club runs wtrc you'll include 18, 19 and 20 models or just the new 20's?
All of the WTCR seasons have been brought up to the same spec and BoP'd. So any WTCR events I run in the club will use all three packs together, to allow the maximum number of people to join at minimal or no extra cost. :thumbsup:

I was hoping, having bought the ultimate pack in November, that the new content would be cheaper by dint of discounts. Seems not so maybe I have to wait until enough comes out to make the ultimate pack available to me again.

It seems to work like that for some things but not others (gt3 pack, pro pack for example) which is a bit annoying as it feels like they make it up as they go along.
They're not making things up as they go along. Each user can only buy each pack once. If you buy the Premium Pack you get everything in the game at that time for one price... a pretty good deal, which gets better each time they release new content since you get more for the same price. After that you have to buy things individually, which I don't think is that unreasonable to be honest.

What you can do if you're adamant to save money is keep an eye on the content included in the Starter and Pro Packs. Sometimes they change it, so it they happen to add something you don't already own you can buy one of those packs to get it discounted. But as above, you can only do this once for each pack.

You can also wait for one of the numerous sales which happen each year, with the next likely being at Easter which is only a weeks away right now.

Ok, that explains why the Pro pack is available to me. I might buy the Renault anyway but it's good to know I don't need too to take part in club races if they're chosen.

Remember that you can test drive all cars as many times as you like, so you can give the Megane a good thrashing before dropping any money on it. :thumbsup:

After trying the cars out, I really like the Cupra but, the Renault was merely OK. I had a bit of trouble getting use to it. Not to say I cannot use it in a race, but the back end wanted to rotate a lot more than the other WTCRs I tried. This is probably something that can be fixed with a few tweaks in the setup menu. (Something I struggle with at the moment.)

That's strange, because for me it felt like the opposite. Using default setups, I found the Megane harder to rotate than the Cupra by some margin. Different driving styles I guess.

Marginally but still around £10 for 2 cars effectively, it's not the amount that bothers me but the fact that I can't get it cheaper having bought all the content 3 month ago. I sort of expected to be able to buy the ultimate pack again but with all of my owned content discounted, it would make everything new cost around £3 (4% of ultimate pack which is about the same amount extra content). It seems to work like that for some things but not others (gt3 pack, pro pack for example) which is a bit annoying as it feels like they make it up as they go along.
I'm sure your probably aware and I just misread....but the premium pack is a one time deal. After you've bought it, you have to pay for everything for here on in.

It would be nice for say if after say 5 yrs of purchasing a premium pack that it unlocks again.

For now buy VRP and wait for sales to get the best deals.

Edit: apologies, I didn't realize that my browser refreshed on page three and there was a half dozen responses with info :)

Yeah, I have the tendency to completely lift of the throttle when turning. It makes for fun times in just about any WTCR. :laugh:

(Edit)

I just took the Renault to Imola, and the back end wouldn't come around. No matter how hard I turned while braking. I stand corrected.

Full livery set cost for some cars can get very expensive.
It's better to wait for when they go on sale, then they got listed as "packs" for cheap, with only missing content included. Just check "RaceRoom Packs" section on store front.
