RaceRoom Experience
If you have had anything to do with this title before but thought you would drop it as it is pay 2 play.
Well, now might be the time to try it out again, at least the free stuff. But there are som great deals from time to time and you can get a few good cars sets and tracks if you are interested.
And there are many good things to get for a little amount of money.

You can do offline championships, single races, practice and all the things you would do in a normal game.
There is now dedicated servers up for SJ and many others. Decent public racing. When you have bought the packs you own them, no iRacing online fees.
The only drawback is that you have to be online connected to play, but how often are we offline these days?
