    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This Rally is the third in a series of Tribute Rallys that we have been running regularly throughout the year. The aim is to honour various Rally Driving Legends, past and present, by driving cars symbolic to these drivers.

    This is a Tribute Rally that I have wanted to run for some time. We will honour a legend in New Zealand and Australia, someone who may not be well known to the European members, Possum Bourne. Possum was not only a great Rally driver, multiple winner of the Australian and South Pacific Rally Championships, but he was one of those true characters who was loved by everyone.

    Possum was a Subaru man during his Rally Career, so we will drive the car in which he won so many times, the Subaru Impreza WRC 2000. We should all find this car to be quick, but still quite nice to control. It is also the base car for RBR, so it should be familiar to most.

    The Stages are designed to represent the Australian and South Pacific Rallys that Possum dominated for so many years. Therefore, I have chosen stages across Australia and Japan only. The weather is mostly mild, but fog and rain will make an appearance. I’ve also included two stages using the Mix Mod, as a test to see how you like it. For Australia, the Mix Mod seems to be a mix of two types of gravel, but for Japan it is a mix of gravel and tarmac, so check your tyre selection for that one (gravel tyres seemed better to me).

    If requests are made for any additional timezones, we will try to include them ( but within the Monday/Tuesday periods).

    Good luck all, and hope we see a good roll up.

    Don’t forget to save your replays for the Rally video. Send your replays to John at elmomarty@bigpond.com . He is specially looking for those classic records of your epic crashes or any interesting or funny experiences. Or maybe you have a replay of a Stage you are especially proud of.

    A little video to give you a taste of what is to come. And also a tribute video which tells the Possum Bourne Story.

    And maybe one more:

    Was in a bit of a bad mood last week so hoping this week isn't as bad :p.
  18. Warren,

    or anyone for that matter. Has anyone come across a possum bourne skin anywhere, I think it would be appropriate to run it on all the cars in the video.

    And talking about that :) Part 1 from the last rally is uploading as I type, Part 2 is publishing and I will upload it right after this first one while I get some sleep. All things being equal they will both be up within the next 8 - 9 hours. I will post in the thread for that rally.

    John, I searched everywhere for a Possum Bourne Skin but no luck unfortunately.
    The best I could come up with was the Burns one that I used for my Promo Video, it is pretty similar to the one Possum Bourne used.
    Actually, the skin that Senad is using for the Rally League is very close, but it is only available for the Grp N Subaru.
  20. Sign me up please for EU thanks :)
