For those of you that love what we are doing, here's where you can have a monetary contribution.

Thanks in advance!
SimRacingHub

========================================================================

Here's our list of expenses for 2017:

Dedicated Server:

As some of you know, I run the server from my home connection but was looking to have a dedicated one setup for official events, to keep costs down like we did in 2015. The server costs the following:

$0.404 per hour

We have 20 races for this season, each event consists of two official days which are Tuesday for Practice and Thursday for Quali and the Race. I also need about 30 minutes to setup the server for an event. Assuming I turn on the server for the first Official Practice to test the system from 9:20pm till 11:30pm after the mini-races are over, and then I turn on the server for every Quali and Race from 9:20pm till 11:45pm on Thursdays. If we calculate the time each event requires, we end up with:

2.1667 hours (first Practice) + [2.4167 hours (each Race) * 20 events] + [0.5 hours (setup time) * 20 events] = 60.5007 hours for the entire season.

Therefore, 60.5007 hours * $0.404 per hour = $24.44 per year.

Not bad for a 1 Gbps up/down server!

TeamSpeak:

Our TeamSpeak server has a 30 user capacity and is running the entire year. The cost for it is $5.57 per month.

Therefore, $5.57 * 12 months = $66.84 per year.

Website:

Here's where it gets expensive.

Domain renewal (simracinghub.com) is $14.95 per year
Domain protection (simracinghub.com) is $24.00 per year
Hosting (simracinghub.com) is $323.40 per year

In total, the website costs $362.35 per year.

If we add Server + TeamSpeak + Website it ends up being $453.63 per year.

I'm not including how much I pay for tools such as Photoshop and Premier, which I use for our website and our videos. That alone is $50 per month. And of course, the precious time that I put into the league is also not being added to the equation.

There you go guys, now you know what I'm facing and what's necessary to keep the league running :)
