    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This time, we leave the dusty gravel and return to tarmac around the French countryside. Our car choice for this Rally is well suited to the tight French mountains, these are the great little S2000 class cars, slightly down on power but still using that typical 4WD Rally transmission. These cars probably represent the future of the WRC.
    This car class is highly recommended to anyone looking to get started in RBR, they are very nimble and well balanced, and are not as demanding to drive as the more powerful WRC cars.
    All cars available in the N4_S2000_1 class are very evenly matched too, no specific car will have any advantage over another. All have very good driving visibility from the cockpit too.

    The stages have been designed to be not too demanding, although the French weather does deteriorate towards the end, especially with the onset of some winter snow beside the roads as we add a couple of Monte Carlo stages.

    Mark, there are some guidelines here that should help.
    http://www.racedepartment.com/richard-burns-rally/31470-rsrbr2010-installing-using-guidelines.html

    Basically, once the Rally starts, you run Stage 1, and when that has finished, you can go back to the main RSCenter and then run the next Stage. Continue that until you have finished all Stages, the Server will record your times, but you can see your overall results compared to others who joined your timezone.
    I will collate and publish all resuts for all timezones after the Rally is finished.

    It is adviseable to use TeamSpeak during the Rally, that way others may be able to help you for your first Rally, and it adds some fun too, comparing stories after each stage or two.

    Just did my installation run :biggrin:. Forgot how much I loved this game on the old Xbox and it looks like it will be even more fun with a proper controller setup on PC. I guess you could say I am hooked! Sign me up!

    Welcome to our RBR Club Mark, great to see you again.
    Can you please let me know your In-Game RSRBR username, so I will be able to find your results from the Server.

    If it is any help to newcomers, I could set up a test Rally on the Server, so you could have a dress rehearsal and make sure everything is working for you. It might also give you a feel for how it all works.
    I could set up a Rally using the first 4 or 5 stages of this Rally (and same cars) on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday night European timezone.

    Let me know if anyone wants this, and which night is best.

    Test Rally Available for Sunday (Euro Zone)

    I have setup a test / rehearsal Rally on the Server, so that anyone new can do a dress rehearsal to make sure they have everything working, or want to see how it all works.

    The Server Name is RD Rehearsal Rally, and it uses the first 4 stages / cars/ password etc as per the main Rally (see sign-up top post).
    This one is set for the European timezone ie. starts at 20.00GMT Sunday.

    Have fun with it and post here if you have any problems.

    Everything seemed to work fine (except me that is). I had a few system issues and didn't realise AVG was doing a scandisc in the background (just installed it) so with that and my not practicing the stages, I kind of crashed a lot in the fog :eek:. I really like the format though and will definitely be there on Wednesday (I am trying to convince other BFR members to join the club as well. Maybe you should stop by our forum and tease them :wink:).

    System froze on me so I had to reboot (incase my times are missing).

    I'll do that, anything to try to get more RBR support.

    Your times were recorded on the Server ok.
