    As the real life WRC series head to France and Corsica, the RBR club does so too. This time we will re-live the 2002 rally, which was dominated by Peugeot, as they claimed all the podium positions with their 206 WRC. Philippe Bugalski in the Citroen Xsara WRC was the best of the rest in fourth, though a full minute behind Richard Burns on the final podium spot.

    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!

  7. I've never had such a good run on Tarmac, set several PB's over the event :confused:

    Still have a misstake, arrived too quickly in a fast right (4- Keep in) and hit a wall, shot up and ended up out in the grass and then the game gave me a CFH when I was less than a car leangth from the road :cautious:

    But overall enjoyed myself because that car actually sort of suit Tarmac, still need some more time and understandning of tarmac :coffee:

    Scratch that, I will try to have a go in the OC-session tomorrow instead. Going to pop a painkiller for my headache and go to bed right now...
     
  10. I was forced to social reality TV watching (tvungen sosial samvær) with my wife last night :( But can take a session 19:00 GMT Tuesday if possible. Alone with kids today so cant drive before they are sleeping. Early bed for them today:D

    Will try to fight with Jonathan but seems like I must set stunning times to be competitive.:confused: Game on ;)

    Great rally, the Focus was nice to drive! Bisanne 2 and I have never been good friends, just can't get my head around the pacenotes there. So a CFH was unavoidable. Really love the Pereygrosse-Mandagout stage, but lost my focus for one second and plowed down the hill (where there is a red Volvo 740 that also drove off the road), so CFH there as well.

    Nevertheless, it was great to trade times with Keegan!

    Thanks for a great event Roy :thumbsup:

  13. just finished with EUY session alone with the Xsara

    OK run until Puy du Lac where I drove slow and took care of 7-10 spectators in the last turn.. CFH Not good..

    On Bisanne 2 I crashed and spun good in the tight corners midway. limped with wobbly steering and smoke from car..

    Peyregrosse-Mandagout I had a good run with the Xsara.. Took it cool and did a careful run after destroying this rally on SS4 and 5.

    Thanks for making regular rallies on RD Ole and Roy..:thumbsup:

    The results have been posted here. Let me know if I've done anything wrong.
    I sadly missed out on the rally all together being sick, but hope to run next weeks rally and win that one instead ;)
