    • Click here to read the password!
    • You will require the RSRBR 2010 (update 03) mod in order to participate, please see the installation and usage threads.
    • Teamspeak is highly recommended, and adds to the fun.

    ...Saved for results...


    Sorry this one is so late drivers but with Warren away it has fallen to my slack self to organise this rally. We are sticking with the Group N theme and visiting the US with only slight variations in stage conditions.

    Normal sign up procedures etc...

    Well guys, we have one sign up and a maybe... I'll postpone this one until next Wednesday 5th May.

    Sorry I didn't post this earlier, spread the word that it is on though please.
     
  7. I've just finished installing RSRBR for the first time (I'm a Czech plugin myself, have yet to grasp the online and physics yet), but I think I'll be able to enter the competition. I'd like it on Thursday or weekend better, but I will just have to wrap my work up faster.

    I'll pick my car after some tests later this weekend.

    As luck would have it, I am home for a few days before heading off again, so I can join this one. I'll try the Suby this time for a change and to balance things a bit.

    Please Note:

    I have made one very small change to Stage 05, it is now good day instead of damp day.

    When setting the Server, it would not allow the damp conditions.

    The Aussie Rally is done and dusted, but with only two Aussies representing Team Subaru.
    Yet another epic battle with Damien, both of us only a few seconds apart for almost the whole Rally, but this time it was my turn to make a hash of the final snow stage. I pulled off a monumental barrell roll in Stage 4, but somehow dragged the Suby to the finish. All other stages went ok until the final run through the snow, when I hit a tiny tree which somehow killed the gearbox and locked it in 1st gear, for most of the Stage. It got very boring trundling around in first along such a high speed Stage, but the poor Suby miraculously crawled to the end.

    Well done to Damien for another good Rally, and thanks again for the TS chats, it adds a lot to our fun. :D
     
  15. Yep, another close battle tonight, often down to 10ths of a second between us. Really good fun as it keeps you pushing on the whole time. Managed to find a pretty good rhythm tonight, had great fun getting it sideways through the long sweeping US bends. Only 2 bits of bad luck; wiped out a gaggle of spectators foolishly standing on the outside of a bend (when will they learn?!), and got catapulted onto my roof by one of the deep potholes . . . watch out for those, they'll get you!

  16. Um... :D... I didn't manage to turn a wheel for a single second of pre-event practice (not good). So I fully expect to barrel roll in the first 20 seconds of the EU event tonight.

    The same for me, but I managed to clear the first stage, but then :frown:

    I have trained for another event, Skoda S2000 on tarmac, and planned to test the Evo this evening but then we had burglers in the house....so no training and no car control :tongue:

    Well better luck next time
     
  18. Burglers... Hope no-one was injured (unless it was the burglers :mad:)...

    Just finished the event and I have to say it was my favourite of all the events we have run thus far. I decided to be conservative and just lift early and stay with the pace notes. No flat-out stuff and no practice seems to have yielded me my best finish yet (think I won EU). I had three major-ish offs when I couldn't quite make out which side of the trees the road was going to follow. Also was going well on the sandy snow until I had an off at the final turn of the stage.

    Thanks for organising the event... Looking forward to the next one. (don't think I'll practice for that either).

    NB - would love to run some event using cars from the 70's if there are any in the mod.
     
  19. I apologise for not showing up on time, I have yet to fully grasp the RSRBR client (it looks like fun though), I'm too much used to the Czech plugin. It was real fun though, despite the fact that I rolled (I always remember this right-hander over giant crest, except the very moment I turn into it...), then crashed and destroyed my gearbox on the last corner of the SS7, and the spectators had to push me back on the road, as I had completely no torque in reverse whatsoever.

    Last stage was extremely interesting - I have done maybe two stages on the snow in the past year or so (and both of them about a month ago, classic Arctic Lapland RBR stages), and I wasn't ready for the snow-covered Hualapai Nation, one of those stages that gives me goosebumps caused by a special mix of fear and joy. I went for a cautious approach and was overjoyed to finish without crashing after few grin-inducing yumps on this flowing and fast stage.

    I'm looking forward to the next event, hopefully it won't be held during the worst part of the week for me (which Wed-Thur just happen to be, unfortunately). And I hope I will be there on time, alarms and calendar entries will be set for sure :)

    BTW: Is there any way to see the results after exiting the password-protected rally? Either the site is completely unintuitive or there is no such option anywhere...

    Hi Łukasz, glad you had some fun with us, hope you can join us regularly.
    You are right though, the RSRBR interface is not overly intuitive and takes some time to find where everything is. It is possible to see the overall results for the Rally you have joined (but only the specific one you joined) before leaving the Server. However, it is not possible after you have left the Server (if it is passworded). Only the person who set up the Rally can see all the results later.
    However, I will extract all results for all Stages across all timezone Rally's and publish them here soon. So you will see your times for each Stage compared to all drivers who joined this Rally, including those who drove in a different timezone. It will also show the overall Rally winners and best Stage times.
    Give me a few hours to pull it all together, it is a tortuous process since the RSRBR data is not all kept in a suitable format.

    Regarding the Race times / days, I would be interested in seeing if there are more suitable days to run these Rally's, especially since we seem to be struggling to get many competitors. I welcome any suggestions for improvement that might attract a few more drivers.
