    This week we will be driving some of the fastest modern FWD cars. The diversity in the class is big, with cars like the Fiat 500, the Citroen DS3, the Renault Clio and even he diesel-powered Fiat Grande Punto.

    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."

    1. These cars are fairly powerful FWD's, and that will generate some wheelspin on the looser surfaces. As with all FWD's you have to be sure that you have slowed down enough before the corner, as it is difficult to brake even further and stay on the road in the middle of 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 R3 Carpack, and the BTB Sweden and BTB World trackpacks.

    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!

    Stage wins:

    Roy Magnes - 4 stage wins
    Rhys Gardiner - 2 stage wins
    Jonatan Åcerclinth - 1 stage win
    Pinky - 1 stage win

    Well done to Keegan, Andreas and myself for getting on the podium this week.
    Nice to see stagewins go to several drivers this week.
    Looks like keeping your nose clean was the way to go once more, Keegan was the only driver who managed that - and it payed off :)

    Thanks to everyone who joined in even though we posted the rally waaay to late this week!
    Next week we will be driving the 1000 Lakes in the RDRC, but the following week we have a different challenge for you. Stay tuned ;)

    Huge appologies for the ultra-late thread! Things have come up for both Pinky and myself all this week. Hopefully we'll get a few cars in the field regardless :)

  14. I must have missed something, because I can't find this in my RSRBR menu. What pack was it included in...?

    Probably my worst rally ever, these stages and the car proved to be way too much for my skills and my patience!

    But I believe that properly driven, this rally must be a great challenge! :) Thanks guys.
  17. A horrendous drive from me today owing to a complete lack of preparation :O_o:
    Sooo many retirements......last stage was fun though!
    Thanks guys
  18. Well that was some kind of improvement from my previous rallies.

    Retired on Sieversdorf and Strickovy-Zadni due to unforeseen accidents... Note to my co-driver, tell me about those massive bumps that launch my car BEFORE I get to them... But other than that and many handbrake turn fails at Daniel Bonara, I completed the stages to a satisfactory standard, and hell, I even found myself (shock horror) having fun at some points...

    See you guys next time!

    I had a few troubles at a few stages because of a lack of driving time with the Fiat which made me find myself, at many points, braking and the rear tires would just trouch the grass/snow slightly and the car would shoot off.

    Happened going for the Medium Left after the "Devils' Jump" at Dead Head and a few times on Strojkovy and Kosnutjak stages.

    Crashing out on the Dead Head stage was very costly, 16 Mins instead of around the 1.30 mark :confused:

    Both the Swedish Stages of Karlstad and Uppland went really well, especially Uppland where I found a good "tempo"/flow and could push very hard :D

    Apart from a bit of :confused: moments I had a lot of fun driving with Ole and Roy :)
