Rally - MINI Monte 2012 - Monday 30th & Tuesday 31st January 2012

Discussion in 'RBR Rally Club & Leagues' started by Warren Dawes, Jan 26, 2012.

  1. Actually, GTL race tonight, so I have decided to create a session for myself :D

    RD MINI Monte EUY - 15:00 GMT (2 and a half hours from now)
     
  2. oooh yes my friend. actually they are the key for me being able to figure out how to do the the job. thanks to you my man. stay blessed.
     
  3. I don't remember liking Monte Carlo mod much before, but this is great fun. Very controllable, loving it.

    The car is also nice, and I mean nice overall, not just nice for an S2000 car :D
    I will actually consider using it in the RDRC :eek:


    Lost about a minute on SS2, too fast in a right hander, went off in style. Called for help, and ended up with steering wheel 90 degrees to the right. Struggled till the end. Shame, splits were looking decent enough.
     
  4. Hmm that i'll drive in EUZ.
     
  5. LOL, nah, I meant that what you said applied to me too. Overslept OC.

  6. LOL :D Well, it ain't always easy ;)
     
  7. Plenty of red times - nice little car but needs work on the setups. Thanks to Warren and Senad for organising this enjoyable event.
    Hope I can start making a more regular appearance :D

  8. No HUH HUH, like we use to say in Finland.
    Plenty of problems first 4 stages, still managed to get my car to finish line every SS. Then I realized little about how to drive with this mini on monte.. Perhaps little practise before event wouldn't have hurt :p
    Thanks for organizers!

  9. Started off ok, trailed Olli for a bit but from ss4 on it was cahotic, had quite a few first degree encounters with some stone walls and some trees. Damaged the suspension a couple of times as well, so fell down towards the bottom of the table.

    Still very enjoyable event, looking forward to the next one! Thank you for the organisers for a great event once again, and I too hope to make a more regular appearance.

    It was a good battle Mark, you definately had the legs on me towards the end, it is a shame your PC crashed! The last stage would have easily been yours as I threw it in a ditch towards the end of SS8 and lost around 45 seconds!

    Looking forward to the next one!

    Congratulations Tero, that's the way to make your first podium, straight to the top. :D
    Well done to Roy and Fernando, very close for such a tricky Rally. Look out guys, Roy's back in form. :p

    I always like to see the Stage wins spread around, so really liked to see these results. Most of the Stage times were surprisingly close this time, so wins were not easy to achieve. It was all about who was prepared to risk it all and push hard on a stage.

    Big welcome to our new Members, Jimi ( great debut mate), Manveer, and Javier, hope you had lots of fun.

    I'm pleasantly surprised at the small amount of RED INK this Rally, especially considering how demanding the Stages were. Looks like the MINI was popular too. ;)
    We didn't quite break the Driver number record, but we gave it a fright with only two less. Thanks to all for your support to the Rally Club.

    Huge thanks to Senad for his Admin smoothness & slickness, and to Damien for the nice banner and the skins he made available.

    See you all next week. :)

    Weeee. That was way better than I feared. And again I win the longest stage of the rally.

    I feel confident that S2000 is the way to go for me in the championship. Suitably fast :)

    Thanks for the rally, looking forward to the next challenge :)
