    A new car-change-rally is heading your way!
    This time we will use 2 different versions of the Citroen DS3 - the powerful, all wheel driven WRC 2011, and the very standard front wheel driven R1 version.
    The thought is that you start driving the rally with one of them, then after the first 4 stages you change to the other one and finish the rally with that.
    If you start the rally with the WRC you will have to build a big enough gap so you do not loose all your time on the last stages, and if you start with the R1 you will have to limit your time-loss to make it easier for yourself to catc up in the later parts of the rally.

    Go tactics! :)

    General RBR Club Rally Rules:

    1. You need to be a licensed member to take part in this event. Gaining a license is a very easy thing to do. Just click here and you will get a license for in a day or two!

    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. You can still be banned from the RBR Club, even though you do not lose your RD License, but you cannot drive if you don't have a license.

    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."
    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. These cars are VERY different to drive. The WRC is one of the most powerful cars in the game, and with 4WD everything surrounding the car happens very fast. The R1 with its FWD is very low on power, and require some smart driving to keep up the momentum and speed through the corners.

    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 RSRBR2013, 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. This means the R1 and A8W_11 carpacks found in the opening post!

    5. There is a NEW password for both the servers(sessions) and teamspeak. Please check it out here!

    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 noone gets in any trouble!

    Finished! Had some lag on SS5, so lost it one time and had to do 2 kms on 4th gear. But would say, should be good for a midfield position.
    The lag must have come from my system, it occassionally does this once per week or month.
    Somehow I knew the stages;) Now experience starts working out:roflmao:

    Thanks to the staff members! Great job as usual guys:)

  12. Sorry Roy, flat out at work right now.
     
  13. I felt more comfortable on the stages in this rally. There were still too many little mistakes for my liking... but still, I'm confident that I did well. I chose the R1 for the first 4 stages, and the WRC car for the final 4 (more straights).

  15. Had a lot of troubles with, among other things, a head on hit with a rock on SS3 and CFH's on both SS1, 4 and 5 :(

    After my troubles on the previous stages I threw caution to the wind and went as quickly as I could and I got the setup down very well for the bumpy last 3 stages which it seems payed off.

    Will upload videos of each of the last 3 stages later this week :)
