    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This week we are invited to join Fernando Agapito's Rally Challenge. He has designed a fiendish rally, using a very nice / stable Group N car choice, but combined with some quite difficult and varied Stages.

    These cars are typical Group N, 4WD but lower powered and quite stable and friendly to drive. Drivers should be quite familiar with these two cars.

    The Stages are quite a challenge. Surfaces, weather, and light settings are widely varied, so they will test drivers skill across the full range. They also include the great Pikes Peak hill climb from the BTB USA pack, we have used it before and it is always a big test of your gravel driving skills.

    We will use REALISTIC damage which will add more to the Challenge.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. These cars are typical Group N 4WD, and have quite stable handling.

    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, especially when changing to Snow Stages.

    4. Special note re PTD RallyeSprint (SS05). This stage has a very blind turn-off to a side road at the end. If you miss this turn-off and go straight ahead, the stage will end and you incur a penalty time.
    Please read this note at RallyeSim which explains it. It is recommended that drivers run a test run to familiarize themselves with it.

    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).

    Many thanks to Fernando for designing this Challenge and to Damien for the great Banner.

    Good luck all, let's see who is up to Fernando's Challenge.

    Here is a great promo video made by Fernando for this Rally:

    Are you sure you can't run Pikes Peak?
    I know of people with quite low spec PC's who can run Pikes Peak ok.
     
  20. Nope, Im not sure :p But I think all BTB tracks have special pixel shader expectations from the graphic card. And mine doesnt fit those expectations. At least it does not for most of the BTB tracks, as far as I know.
