    Drivers, Please Note & Consider: This is a test rally for the RDRC Season 6. It is to see how the Gr.B cars compares to the newest WRC cars. It would be to a great benefit for us in the RDRC-crew if there would be a difference in cars in this rally. Instead of 2 Gr.B and 15 WRC. While we know that these are hard cars to drive, it would really be helpful to get some of your input as well! :)
    For that reason, if you already know what class you will drive, please mention
    WRC or Gr.B in your signup. This might make it easier for others to choose car!
    Additional Note: The Lancia 037 and Renault Gr.B, is RWD!

    Welcome to the second rally of the year, and the first RDRC S6 test rally. In this rally we will drive over all three surfaces, on a variety of stages, some fast, some wide, some slow, some narrow. To try our best to get a comparison between the Gr.B and WRC cars. It will be a very challenging rally, but also a fun and helpful one. We hope to see lot's of good driving this time as well!

    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 the most powerful cars in the game. While the newer WRC cars, does have the brakes and suspension to match it, they are a handful. The Gr.B cars however, is even more powerful, but they don't have any of the handling characteristic, or stopping power to match it. They might be fast, but they are really dangerous.

    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. Everything needed is linked to in blue in the opening post!

    5.There is a NEW password for both the servers(sessions) and teamspeak. Please check it outhere!

    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 winners:

    Manuel De Samaniego - 5 stage wins
    Sandro Pinho - 1 stage win
    Emil Pribanic - 1 stage win
    Aku Lokelainen - 1 stage win

    Congratulations to Manuel, Tommi and Karl for finishing on the podium this week. The times were competetive throughout the rally, and it looked like the Group B-machines did well on these stages aswell. It sure looks like the Group B cars can be implented in the RDRC, given they can last for the longer stages. I guess we'll test that in the future ;)

    I'll probably drive a WRC car, as that's what I'm intending to run in the RDRC.

    Great to see an even spread of the cars so far! :)

    Though, you should also drive the car that you want :)

    I can already see this isn't going to be a very fair test of both categories...

    I'll just leave this here. :p
