2015 Season 4:
Seth W's "Cheapskate's guide to racing in 2015 S4"
 
Links: iRacing forum thread | SW's Oval image | SW's Road image 
Please let me know if the image links change.
(Kudos to Seth for doing it, apparently RW is still banned).
 
2015 Season 3:
RW's Thread "The cheapskate's guide to cheap racing in 2015 S3"
It was a good thread. RW's actions resulted in the thread being removed (28/9/15).
Martin's post shows a screenshot before the thread was removed.
I have his images filed somewhere, ask if you want them.

2015 Season 2:
At a glance you can see the concept of driving included tracks/cars.
Extract from RW's thread The cheapskate's guide to free racing in 2015 S2:
Read his thread for any corrections or updates.
RW's opinions of 'Driving standards' included below, I don't necessarily agree.
 
The cheapskate's guide to free racing in 2015 S2

Post this anywhere you like but please don't include my real name. This is the internet, it's full of weirdos.

Thought I'd do this to indicate what free/cheap racing is available (ie with no purchases or minimal purchases). If it proves useful I'll do this every season. Not going to cover the 20/36-week series as I'll be here all day! If you decide to purchase something for a series, check its past participation to ensure that it runs at times that suit you. You can find this by selecting the series and clicking results to look over past weeks.

Free cars: MX-5, Solstice, Legends, SRF, Street Stock, Caddy.
Free tracks: Charlotte, Laguna Seca, Lanier, Lime Rock Park, Okayama, Oxford Plains, South Boston, Summit Point, Thompson, USA
