    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    Back to a more traditional Rally this time, but we will debut a new car that we have never used before in the Rally Club.

    For this Rally we are using a car proposed by Ondrej Kapal, the Ford Sierra RS, a classic Rally car from the early 1990's which enjoyed great success in both Rally and Track Racing across the world.
    This car is similar to drive to other A8 cars, it is 4WD, and quite fast. It's handling is lively, but fairly stable, able to be thrown around for some fun.

    The Stages chosen are all default RBR Stages, and will cover a wide mix of surfaces to see how the Sierra handles each surface type. Tarmac, Snow, and Gravel will all be on show.
    The weather varies but is relatively mild for this one, and we take a break from the dim night driving with all daylight stages.


    1. This car is 4WD, has high power and performance, but it's handling is quite good, although fairly lively as expected. Once you get a feel for it, you can throw it around fairly aggressively.

    2. RBR Pacenotes are designed for default cars, Normal conditions and Good weather. Please remember to adjust your speeds to suit the car.

    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 for the Snow Stages.

    4. All drivers planning to join the OC Session, please note the change in Start time due to the introduction of Daylight Saving Time in NSW, Vic, and Tas. The Start time has been brought forward by 1 hr.

    If requests are made for any additional time zones, 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 Ondrej for the Rally car suggestion, and Damien for the cool banner.

    Good luck all, I hope you enjoy bringing the old Sierra back to life again. :rally: :signup:

    Here is a brief promo video showing the car in-game on SS05, illustrating two of the skins available for the car. I also removed the ugly extra light ramp from the bonnet.

    Also, to set the scene, here is a video showing the real classic Sierra in action from the past.
