Tom lebeuf made the comment that rfactor 2 is beginning to get expensive. I don't disagree with him that if rfactor 2 makes you buy every track individually at $10 a track it will get expensive. However, I expect that we're going to see as they develop tracks eventually new members will be able to buy track packs and package deals for significantly less than what the tracks were when they initially were released. At least that's my hope.

This is exactly what you saw in assetto Corsa. As Tom pointed out you can now buy asseto coursa and all of the DLCs for less than 90 bucks. Mind you this is still half price from what that particular package was a little while back.

 Unfortunately, it appears that as the current tracks are being released we will have to pay top dollar for their development. But if the remainder of the tracks are of the same quality as Sebring I don't think we're going to get any many people complaining.

I'm actually hoping that one Studio 397 gets there track building chops up to Snuff they will be able to hammer out tracks more quickly and offer four to five tracks per pack to meet the demand as rfactor continues to grow popularity.

I've seen a number of YouTube videos now of people who are suggesting that rF2 is going to be the next big Sim because of all the good work Studio 397 is doing on it. I hope they are right.

That's true. I feel there's another point. S397 need to produce content at a high rate, since other sim's have more official content. For that reason I bought the Formula E and Hong Kong. I've driven that car maybe for 2 hours, so money-wise it was expensive, but it helps S397 develop our beloved sim and for me that was enough to buy that specific DLC.
The other content (GT3 pack, endurance pack, Sebring laser scanned) I really wanted to buy. The price for Sebring is high, but I feel that average prices will go down at S397 in the future, even for new releases, because they'll have more experience with e.g. developing a laserscanned track and a bigger crow to sell to. A lot of people fell out of love with rF2 due to the ISI development issues. S397 is making up for that big time.
Personally I would love if they sold all the items individually or at least tracks and cars separately.

Well on the plus side,my refund request was rejected so I am keeping Sebring after all...LOL. It is a fantastic track, I just REALLY wish S397 hadn't recreated what was already a top 3 track in Rf2. I really want them to release a track pack, as I think that is what will draw new interest. I have heard a few real-life racers indicate that the main reason they use iRacing is because of the accuracy of the tracks, and having driven both iRacing and RF2 (for me anyway) there is no debate. Both are excellent but RF2 at it's best (GTE content) is just ridiculously good.

In terms of new users to RF2 though, I hate the segregation of content because what will likely happen is the new user buys the base game to try it.. IF they can figure out how to get it up and running without getting fed up, they still have outdated content and abandoned mods to deal with. I would still like to see all of the base content updated to the GTE standards and fully DX11 content. Many mods have been abandoned so it seems unlikely they will be updated. Hopefully this new "league support" in the new ui will make it easy to advertise leagues and have members join. As an alternative, S397 could host a championship like iRacing does.

We will see marketcrash, ...Reiza Studios & S397 will unite in August. Unsure how many clients Reiza has working for them, but they could allow updating of old content, and finally a new UI for our current game.

I don't believe the two studios are actually uniting. My understanding is that they are going to Simply bring some of the assets from Reiza estudios to rfactor 2 such as tracks and cars. But I don't believe they're actually going to be combining.
