    All sessions will be combined together for an overall result for the event. You can only run on one session.

    ** PLEASE NOTE re Car Selection:

    1. To help ensure a more mixed car selection, please select a car from the available list in the Sign-Up post (below). Only a limited number of each car will be available, so first in best dressed. All cars are closely matched in performance. If more drivers sign up after all cars are allocated, then we may add additional cars at our discretion.

    2. IN ADDITION, all drivers who drove in the previous three Rallys with these cars (Mud & Slush @ Japan, Snow Sliding in Finland, Tour de France), MUST choose a different manufacturer of car to the ones you used previously. ie. If you drove a Subaru 99, you cannot choose the Subaru 99 or Subaru 00. However, for this series, the Escort and the Focus are to be treated as separate cars.

    Please, only sign-up if you intend to join, to help prevent limiting car choices to others who may sign-up later.

    Car Roster for A8W-99 and A8W-00

    Here is the list of cars used by drivers in the previous Rallys with A8W-99 to 00 cars.
    Drivers MUST use a different manufacturer's car in this Rally.

    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    For this Rally, we return to the theme used in our Rally Series, the early years of WRC Rally Cars, 1999 and 2000. These cars are typical 4WD Rally Cars, but lack some of the power and smarts of modern Rally Cars. These Car Packs have a wide selection of cars available, but all are very closely matched, with some variation in handling / weight characteristics.

    For this Rally, we run gravel, and use mainly the default Stages of England.
    The weather also is typically British, often wet, with daylight also varying.
    Again, to ensure full variety of cars used, we have included a restricted range of cars on sign-up.

    PLEASE NOTE: You must select your car from the available list in the sign-up, so early sign-ups get a bigger choice of cars. Don't worry, all cars are closely matched in performance, but may have slightly different handling characteristics.

    We also have an additional rule for car choice. All drivers who participated in our previous rally series with these cars MUST choose a different manufacturer's car this time. See details in the sign-up and the provided list of drivers and cars used previously.
    If you didn't drive the previous rallys, you are free to choose any of the available cars.

    Also note, we will continue running this Rally theme regularly, and the car restrictions will continue. So your choices will be limited until you have driven most manufacturer's cars.

    To be fair to your fellow members, please only sign-up if you intend to join, we don't want "maybes" reserving cars and limiting others choices. So if you are a "maybe", please leave your sign-up to later.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. These cars are all 4WD and handling should be familiar to those used to driving WRC cars. All cars are similar in performance, but may handle slightly differently. The Corolla and Escort are a little tailey, but you can improve that with small setup adjustments. The Skoda feels a little heavier, as expected.

    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 RSRBR2011, please beware that sometimes it may give you the wrong tyre for the conditions. Always double check your tyres, it is critical. This is especially important for Snow Stages.

    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).


    Good luck all, I hope you have fun battling the British weather.
     
  5. A8W-00 are default cars, right?

    Mostly yes, but the physics may be different in RSRBR2012.

    Must use a different manufacturer - that means I can only use the Escort, or the Focus?
     
  9. Or Subaru, or Hyundai, or Peugeot, or Toyota? :D

    Anything except the Seat or Skoda for you Ole.

    Check the chart in the above post #3 to see what you have already driven.

    I may add a Spitfire later. :p

    Ah, differences in languages, what I meant was that if I drive the Escort, I can't take the Focus later?
    I do know that both are Fords, but as those are the only cars from a manufacturer that ain't the same car it might be a difference, that's why I'm asking :)

    Oh, I see now.
    Yep, I'll treat the Focus and the Escort as different cars, they are very different to each other. So, if anyone drives the Escort, they can drive the Focus at a later time. :thumbsup:
    I was really only wanting to prevent using the same car in 99 and then 00 since they are basically very similar.

    I've updated the main posts to make that clearer (I hope). Thanks.

    Nice stage choice! I had a feeling this would be the next rally considering the championship finale.

    Actually, the timing vs the RDRC was a complete fluke. I've had this one in the schedule for some time now, this was the first time to fit it in.
    As it turns out, it might give some drivers a warm up for the RDRC though. :)

    Oki! Wehey! :D Then I can use the Escort one time, without being afraid of not being able to use the Focus :D

    Then I just need to decide for what car to use!
