    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This week we have something different, designed by Andrew Fearby. We have two Rallys in one, with a choice of FWD or RWD, choose your preference. Results will be separated for both Classes.

    These cars are very different, as expected. We opted to run each class separately because their relative performances are not equal, the Peugeot will be considerably faster on most Stages and easiest to drive. The BMW will be much more lively and fun to drive, but should yield slower times. The BMW will have that added "fun" factor for those who enjoy the RWD experience.

    The Stages are mainly tarmac and gravel. They have been varied to try to balance the strengths and weaknesses of both cars.

    We will use REALISTIC damage which will add more challenge.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. These cars are very different, with totally opposite handling characteristics. The Peugeot is typical FWD and quite stable, the BMW is typical RWD and may prove a handful to the inexperienced drivers. However, this BMW seems more stable to drive than most of the other RWD cars we have used.

    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.

    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 Andrew for designing this Rally, and to Damien for the great Banner.

    Good luck all, choose your weapon, FWD or RWD.

    Here are a couple of video's to help introduce these cars:

    The Peugeot


    And the BMW (I know it's not exactly the same one but close enough)

    I'll take the Pug, considering the tracks, I'll never get the BMW round Joux Verte in one piece, those hairpins are evil in RWD cars :p

    Actually, the Beemer is easy there.;)

    You had me worried, so I just gave it a quick squirt at Joux Verte with basically default setup. The hairpins were no trouble at all, don't even have to worry about getting handbrake turns right. Just drop it to 1st, and drive it around and back to 2nd again. If anything, the rear has too much grip, so with some setup adjustment, I suspect it can be made to slide a little around the hairpins.

    Here is a replay of my test run (no practice), maybe it gives you some idea. You should at least give it a try. :p

    Of course, some of the other Stages may be a lot more tricky in the BMW. :rolleyes:

    I'll have a quick shortly and let you know low i get on. I just trying to do hairpins in RWD cars a pain with no handrake lol.

    Edit: bJust had a play, BMW handles quite well on JV, but was aggravating on Poland R. I'll take the Pug anyway, cause no doubt all the quick drivers will run BMW and the Pug will provide some really close competition for me (no doubt I'll fail though :p )
    also, sweet lamb is crashing RSCenter >_>

    I always enjoy a challenge (and some excitement :eek: ), so I'll give the Beemer a blast.

    Yep, it's a real shame we have no handbrake with the RWD cars. :(
     
  8. Yay, Im going to love this!

    I used to own an e36 BMW 325i M-sport, and apart from sounding sweet as a nut and going like stink, it did tend to be rather oversteery. (a lot of fun in the snow however!) These cars are great to drift in real-life, but the enjoyment subsides slightly when it wasn't your intention to make the car go sideways... ;)

    Yes, i'll be choosing the Beemer by the way!

    Edit: If anyone can make this skin i'd be most grateful! Should be easy enough but i don't know how to get the metallic blue effect. ('Mauritius Blue')

    Hmmmnnn!!! The Peugeot isn't proving too popular yet.

    Always loved the 205 on this game so much fun to drive! Plus I've navigated in a few over the years so have a soft spot for them!
