    Using the original Rally Australia-stages from the game this week, though with mixed surface at the end. It should provide a close battle, so go out there and have fun!

    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.


    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:
    Tobjørn Withbro - 5 stage wins
    Jonatan Åcerclinth - 1 stage win

    Congratulations to Torbjørn and Jonatan ahead of me on the podium this week. And thank you to all participating once more, nice to see that the usual suspects are running the events :) Seems like the Ford Focus was the car to have in Australia this week, even though Jonatan in the Skoda stole a stage win towards the end.

    Next weeks event will be up later tonight (or tomorrow at latest, Jonatan), so keep your eyes open :)

  5. Aside from you being a few hours late according to what you said with regards to posting the event thread, it was worth the wait by the looks of things, should be good fun this one :D

    The EUX-session pretty much ended with spins and offs on all the stages but one. My driving is being destroyed by Dirt Rally day by day :p

    So slow, but good fun! No way to keep the scandinavians in sight though.

    Quite strange to drive a car with 5 gears, it didn't help either, but hey, i don't need any more excuses :p Thanks for this one Roy, it was nice and enjoyable! :)

  13. Fun rally with some mistakes. On SS3 Mineshaft a spin after to much oversteer:cautious:. Struggled to turn car right way again on that one. Drove like a mad man rest of stage:devilish:

    I hate mixed surfaces stages as SS5 east west and ss6 new bobs 2. I was so slow on those stages. Car was so oversteered on those stages. Last stage it felt like "Bambi on ice" with tarmac tires. slippery as :whistling:

    Nice session with the Sweed duo+ Daniel we were so close in times. But Jonatan whooped us good on SS5 east west. Whats the correct tire choice here? I went with gravel tires.

  14. Didn't have much hope after crashing on SS3 - Mineshaft, made the same misstake that I'd done about 7 times in other runs on that stage, just prior to the open area before the MJump, I managed to put a tire on the wrong side of a "crest" in the road, the car oversteer and I hit a tree big time, was in 5th gear (top gear) so you can imagine the speed travelled at...

    East West is one of my favourite stages in the game and my practice stage for all surfaces (apart from Tarmac...) so I sort of know the stage quite well :)
    I went with Gravel tires, made a few small error here and there costing from time but still "only" 10 seconds off of my PB on the stage in those conditions so happy with it :laugh:

    Sadly had the wrong tires on the last stages, Gravel tires are so much better on that stage compared to the tarmac ones, had two offs, one at the intersection after the long right and a second at the top of the hill before the final run down the mountain, would have been a session stage as well had I not made those misstakes, I blame them on the tires (not the fact that I was looking the other way before both those offs :whistling: )

    Was some nice stage fights in there though, close good fun action :inlove:

  15. I also forgot to switch to the gravel tires for the final stage, was that fun or what? Overall I had a blast. Thanks to all. Thanks for putting this on.
