    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This time we are introducing a few new twists, just to add to the fun (I hope). We stay with the big boys, but slightly older WRC cars (A8W-05), they are fast and a delight to drive but you will need a patient and smooth right foot.
    As an added twist, 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. The Stages are varied to help even out any handling variations too.

    To ensure that I am impartial, I will choose my car from whatever cars are still available 24 hrs before the Event.

    We will visit a mix of Countries, but all will be dry gravel conditions.
    I have tried to incorporate some of the suggestions provided by our member after the last Rally.

    Based on feedback from drivers, we have stayed with the changed Race Night for this one. Europe and USA will be Monday night, and Oceania will be Tuesday night. If this continues to be favourable, we will retain this for future Rallys.

    Good luck all, and hope we see a good roll up. :rally:

    A little video to help you see the car choices.

  4. I'd like to participate, but I would need yet another Tuesday @19.00GMT slot, if it's possible again. WTM is held on Monday for the last time, so hopefully I won't be beggin' for it again :).

    Didn't have any practice at all with neither of those cars, so sign me up for the Focus, let's stay faithful to the Blue Oval :).
  5. Could I have an earlier US slot if possible please? At 2200GMT if no US guy signs up? :)

    And can I have the Focus if that's possible? RBR name is Redhawk IIRC.
  6. Senad Subasic (mfodor), Europe Rally.
    Subaru Impreza please.

    EDIT: Ah, cool video, nice transitions.

    EDIT2: I like the limit on available cars :good:
  7. Not that I want you to miss an rFactor event but Touring Masters are done by this Monday and this event is next Monday :)
  8. I'll take the Subaru

    Europe timeslot

    Ryan, for now, I'll plan on adding an additional USA slot for you at 22.00 GMT Monday, titled RD Gravel Mix US X.
    This leaves the original USA slot still available for any US guys in case they want that one. If no USA guys sign-up, the USA X slot will remain available for you, or anyone else who may want to join you.
  10. Thanks, appreciated :)
  11. Hey Guys,

    Unfortunately the times aren't good for me. Warren, I would need another spot either Sunday night or Wednesday Morning (Australian Time) to be able to compete.
  12. BTW, I'll take the 307 if we can find a time or me to run
  13. Damien Jones (DJones)
    OCN session
    Skoda Fabia
  14. Whoopeee, here we go again.

    I shall take a citroen please

  15. Guys,

    Not sure if you are aware about setting up rallies, but they aren't single click things to get going. Each stage has to be put in with the weather and other variables placed in individually. Timezones have to be set and the all results are MANUALLY put into a spreadsheet.

    I know Warren will do whatever he can to make people happy and to see the RBR club grow and be successful, but let's respect the hardwork that already goes into it and try to keep the extra requests to a minimum...

    Rick, I understand the frustrations with your shift work hours, and I'm happy to help within some boundaries. As I have said elsewhere, I will try to add additional Rally's but within the limits of having all Rallys within the two day timespan. Therefore, I can only offer Monday or Tuesday, is there a specific time within that range suitable?

  18. Wah, how could I miss that? Thanks for pointing it out :D Then I'm in for an Euro event, just where Warren put me in.
  19. Thanks very much for reminder Warren. Since there is no Subaru left :frown:, maybe someone will give up on one. I'll have to think about what car to choose, but I'm on for Europe time zone, RobbKul (r27kul).
    I'll take the Skoda.
  20. You can have my Impreza, I'll take the Škoda then.
