    Time to start driving the cars that doesn't get so much love! This time, it's the new Opel Adam R2! :)

    General RBR Club Rally Rules:
    1. You must use your real name when signing up for the event.

    2. As always, Club Events are for casual fun racing. It's always great fun to be fastest, and win. But this is not the main thing to achieve in Club Events. The club events are for developing your skills and test new cars and stages.

    3. The usual RaceDepartment rule do apply. You need to keep two wheels on the road. Even though this is a rally game. We will not check this on replays, but for yourself, and all the other drivers please follow this rule.

    4. RaceDepartments Terms of Service do apply. If you haven't read it, or don't remember the 19 points of the ToS. Please read it again.

    5. If you feel the need to contact anyone about something that's happened on the forum or on the stages for some reason, you can always report the post. Or you can send a Private Message to either Ole Marius Myrvold or Roy Magnes (by clicking on the link in the names).

    6. The RBR Club Staff reserve the right to ban any person from driving in the Rally Club. The time of the ban will differ from each situation.

    7. As this is not a circuit, there is no possible way for one driver to affect another during the events. By such, there should not be any reason for drivers to be angry with one eachother after a rally. A good rule is to read through your post before posting it. If it comes across as angry, or full of sarcasm. It might be good idea to wait some more minutes to post. Remember the general RD rule: " Mutual respect between the people using the RaceDepartment.com website(s) and forums. This means you may not personally attack other forum users. malicious behaviour and bullying will not be tolerated. If there is a problem report it to the staff."

    8. As in RDRC, restarting stages is not allowed. You are however allowed to start a new session,-and get results from that, if you have not passed the first sector on the first stage. If you have passed the first sector on the first stage. That session will count towards the result.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. Medium-Powered FWD cars, will understeer while on throttle, and oversteer while braking and turning! Good Luck! :)

    2. RBR Pacenotes are designed for default cars, Normal conditions and Good weather. Please remember to adjust your speeds to suit these cars.

    3. Tyre selections are the drivers responsibility. If you use the automatic tyre selection option in RSRBR2015, please beware that sometimes it may give you the wrong tyre for the conditions. Always double check your tyres, it is critical, especially for Snow Stages.

    4.Please ensure to install the all the packs needed. Everything needed is linked to in blue in the opening post!

    5. Password is the usual RD password - if you for some reason do not know that. PM @Ole Marius Myrvold

    6.Please report any problems caused by the stages, or the inability to make sessions, posts and times right from the Rally Club Staff!

    If requests are made for any additional timezones, or changes to Start times to better suit your local needs, we will try to include them ( but within the Monday/Tuesday periods).

    And with this post! The sign up is open! We wish everyone the best of luck! And hope that no one gets in any trouble!

  5. Never even touched the car but count me in for this one, should be a lot of fun, even though a majority of the stages is Tarmac :)

    In reality it will be a session that I am around for as I usually turn up to one of them.
     
  7. Usuall question by me- I ask for permission to drive the rally as guest entry with non homologated car, my times wouldn't get classified in result table. If it is any kind of hassle for You guys- I won't participate (causing any kind of problems is the last thing I want here). Cheers!

    Sorry, in the club events, we want to keep it clean with only the car(s) allowed to being run.
    Anyhow, these sessions will be locked to R2 only ;)

    We cannot "force" anyone out, as we have a public password, but we would like you to either participate with the car(s) specified in the Club Event, or not run these events :)

  11. Last week I was completely ruled out by the flu. That was also the reason that I didn't drive the Jänner Rallye. Little by little it is going better, but I haven't practiced at all.
    Although I am not absolutely sure, probably I will give it a try (and hope that I will not crash at the first coughing fit :().

    Fun car to drive, and cool selection of stages, really enjoyed the Belgian ones!

    Practiced a bit on the new stages, and apparently almost did well before i lost the rear completely near the end on SS2! My feeling at the end of the stage:

    [​IMG]

    And so many CFH on SS6, damn ditches, and it didn't happen once during practice :D

    Thanks for the event, guys! Got CFHs and DNF but still a happy guy nonetheless :)

    No practice. Had the BTB stages installed 2 minutes before the start of the rally.

    Car seemed to have unpredictable braking characteristics. Either very stable or very backwards. I missed the last turn in PTD and clonked a few trees on the first of the Belgian stages. Other than that just set it to cruise control and listened to the pace notes. Pretty pleased with the overall result given that we all knew that Magnar was going to school us as per usual.

    - Oscar.
     
  18. Fun rally. Never seen the first 3 stages before. Nice. Happy to show my ice-skills on the last stage. Thanks organisers.

    Not my rally this week either... The first stage was somewhat okay, but that is the only stage that went okay. I left the road twice on SS2, and locked the gearbox in 1st. SS3 loaded Kaihuavaara snow for me with the Citroen C2, so a retired time on that one.
    3xCFH on SS4, retired when I put the car on the roof on SS5. On SS6 I spun big time without hitting anything, but when I then put the car in 1st gear and started to move, I hit a spectator I did not see, and got a CFH here too.
    I did an angry and pretty fast SS7, but in a hairpin just after sector 2 I understeered straigt off the road, and once more locked the gearbox in 1st...

    I really, really want to drive some fun cars and get the good feeling back now, the last few weeks has somewhat taken the fun out of the driving.
    But next week... Next week... Beware! :p

  20. Some ok times. BTB stages was new.Installed just before Eu session. Survived SS2 but on SS3 I crashed car and gearbox got stuck in 3rd gear. Had a small crash uphill later in stage and CFH and could not start in 3rd gear uphill retirement.

    Nice car by the way.. fun on tarmac.

    Thanks for great great itenary:) Got the good feeling for "Adam" during the rally (that came out wrong:whistling:)

    thanks to organizers:thumbsup:
