    All sessions will be combined together for an overall result for the event. You can only run on one session.

    ** PLEASE NOTE re Car Selection:

    1. To help ensure a more mixed car selection, please select a car from the available list in the Sign-Up post (below). Only a limited number of each car will be available, so first in best dressed. All cars are closely matched in performance. If more drivers sign up after all cars are allocated, then we may add additional cars at our discretion.

    2. IN ADDITION, all drivers who drove in the previous two Rallys with these cars (Mud & Slush @ Japan, Snow Sliding in Finland), MUST choose a different manufacturer of car to the ones you used previously. ie. If you drove a Subaru 99, you cannot choose the Subaru 99 or Subaru 00.
    Refer to the Car Roster in the below post.

    Please, only sign-up if you intend to join, to help prevent limiting car choices to others who may sign-up later.

    • Click here to read the password!
    • You will require the RSRBR 2012 Mod & Update 05, in order to participate, please see the Installation and Usage thread.
    • You will also require the A8W-99 and A8W-00 car packs.
    • Teamspeak is highly recommended, and adds to the fun.
    • Please sign up in the following format: RD Name (RSRBR2012 Name) - Session. Include your car choice.
    • Take a screenie of RSCenter, or save your times, showing your final results at the end of the rally (including the car you drove!). This is in case any of your stages are missed by the server. If there's a discrepancy, please post your times ASAP so we're not adjusting times over 24 hours later.
    • You must stick with the same car throughout the rally - if you change, your times for those stages will be defaulted.
    • If you are new to Richard Burns Rally, we have provided a set of guidelines and links to help you get up and running: Here

    Car Roster for A8W-99 and A8W-00

    Here is the list of cars used by drivers in the previous Rallys with A8W-99 to 00 cars.
    Drivers MUST use a different manufacturer's car in this Rally.

    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    For this Rally, we return to the theme used in our Rally Series, the early years of WRC Rally Cars, 1999 and 2000. These cars are typical 4WD Rally Cars, but lack some of the power and smarts of modern Rally Cars. These Car Packs have a wide selection of cars available, but all are very closely matched, with some variation in handling / weight characteristics.

    For this Rally, we run tarmac, and use mainly the default Stages of France.
    The weather also varies for most Stages, with daylight also varying, and finishing with a change from the mountainous climbs to the fields of Puy du Lac.

    Again, to ensure full variety of cars used, we have included a restricted range of cars on sign-up.

    PLEASE NOTE: You must select your car from the available list in the sign-up, so early sign-ups get a bigger choice of cars. Don't worry, all cars are closely matched in performance, but may have slightly different handling characteristics.

    We also have an additional rule for car choice. All drivers who participated in our previous rally series with these cars MUST choose a different manufacturer's car this time. See details in the sign-up and the provided list of drivers and cars used previously.
    If you didn't drive the previous rallys, you are free to choose any of the available cars.

    Also note, we will be running this Rally theme regularly, and the car restrictions will continue. So your choices will be limited until you have driven most manufacturer's cars.

    To be fair to your fellow members, please only sign-up if you intend to join, we don't want "maybes" reserving cars and limiting others choices. So if you are a "maybe", please leave your sign-up to later.


    1. These cars are all 4WD and handling should be familiar to those used to driving WRC cars. All cars are similar in performance, but may handle slightly differently. The Corolla and Escort are a little tailey, but you can improve that with small setup adjustments. The Skoda feels a little heavier, as expected.

    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. This is especially important for Snow Stages.

    4. We have decided to override the default penalty time for SS08, Puy du Lac. The default time is 5:30 mins which is considered too short for this Stage. So, we will be adjusting the penalty time to 8:00 mins for those who DNF or skip the Stage.

    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 his nice Banner.

    Good luck all, I hope you have fun climbing the mountains of France.
