    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    We are running another of our Tribute Rallys, where we recognise past and present Rally Drivers and the cars they were most famous with.

    For this Rally, we pay tribute to another great Rally driver from Finland, Henri Toivonen. Henri was considered by many to be potentially one of the greatest Rally Champions in history, but sadly he was killed in a horrific crash and fire on 2 May 1986 while leading the Tour de Course rally in Corsica. This tragic crash led to the final decision to ban the famous Group B cars forever.

    Toivonen proved to be an exceptionally talented driver at a very young age, and achieved success in WRC driving for Lancia, and becoming the youngest driver to win a WRC event at 24, a record only recently beaten by Jari-Matti Latvala.

    So, for this rally, we will drive the Lancia S4, the car he had immediate success with, but also the car in which he died. It is a typical Group B beast, hugely powerful, very quick, and will need careful control of the power.

    For this Rally, drivers will be severely tested to see if they have the skill and control of Henri Toivonen. We are using a split of Gravel and Snow Stages, with the second half of the Rally in his native country of Finland.



    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. This car is typical of the Group B era. It is 4WD, very fast, with "lively" handling. Patience, self control, and a light right foot will be essential to control this one. If you respect the car, it will yield very fast times.

    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).

    Thanks to Damien for the great Banner.

    Good luck all, and I hope you enjoy this tribute to Henri Toivonen. :star:


    And a couple of Video's tributed to Henri.

    Yes Chris, just sign up and request it.

    Senad, there are others in the EUX session now, if you want to go back to your original choice?

    What a bummer Rick, it was you who gave me the inspiration for this one. :frown: I knew you were a huge fan of Henri.
     
  17. I suspect it's because of my poor session name choice. They probably think it's the almost-standard 18 GMT session.
    I'll stay at 17 then, just in case.
     
  18. Christopher Drennan - drennanc - EUY (tuesday 19:00 GMT) please....
