    Aaah, night time. The quiet, peaceful time of the day where the world slows down and relax in the dark... But not this week! This week we'll be tearing up the place with some night time driving in the noisy, brutal and fast WRC cars! Tighten the belts, and get ready for action!

    General RBR Club Rally Rules:
    1. You must use your real name when signing up for the event.

    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.

    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."

    8. As in RDRC, restarting stages is not allowed. You are however allowed to start a new session,-and get results from that, if you have not passed the first sector on the first stage. If you have passed the first sector on the first stage. That session will count towards the result.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. These cars are powerful beasts with 4WD, so take care out there!

    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 RSRBR2015, 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. Password is the usual RD password - if you for some reason do not know that. PM @Ole Marius Myrvold

    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 no one gets in any trouble!

    Stage wins:
    Jonatan Åcerclinth - 3 stage wins
    Torbjørn Withbro - 2 stage wins
    Roy Magnes - 1 stage win

    Congratulations to Torbjørn on his win with last seasons RDRC-machine, and congratulations to Jonatan on the final step on the podium this week. Thank you to all that took part in the event, it really seems like the Monte Carlo-stage was the one with the bigest margin this time. It separates the drivers who know the stage from those who doesn't in the daylight, and it proved itself so in the dark too.

    Next weeks event will be up thursday evening, so keep your eyes peeled :)

    @Daniel Monteiro Have you been playing Mass Effect lately, that is the exact way a space race in that would express that :p

  8. I've been watching all the races held after the end of the championship. Due to workload I did not have time to go racing so I collected all the hardware in the closet. The time that the beast will awaken once more closes. Next week my geko gs105 arrives. By the end of the month I will find a way to present it to my wife as well. Can't wait to smell tyres again...

    Well, that went down south in a hurry... Jumped the start on ss01, then I hit a post and spun in the final corner. Went for tarmac tires on ss02, but I don't know if this was the best choice today.
    Okay runs on ss03 and ss04, then I spun again on the narrowest part of ss05. Lost lots of time doing a 25-point-turn to get going again. Then I did an okay final stage. Driving fast in the dark is tough!

  15. Thanks a lot mate :)
     
  16. Again, thank you very much for the, althought late, session :)

    Had a few good and fun stages, most fun I had I had on Bisanne, apart from the Skoda the Pug is very nice to drive on that stage :laugh:

    Had a few massive misstakes as well, one at Mineshaft II where the car understeered even though I had a bit of gas as well as left-foot-brake going on :O_o: and one on the last stage where I missjudged the angle over a crest and made a run through the old "Cut Down Wood Area" resulting in a spin, stalled car and time lost doing a 180 hand brake turn to get going the correct way again :cautious:

    But overall enjoyed myself as always when it's dark and the owls are singing, even though I couldn't hear them this night :roflmao:
