    2015 has come, and we climb back behind the wheel once again after a long holliday break. With the new mod we've recieved further 2 cars in the R5, adding the total up to 3. As these cars are more popular than ever, and are likely to be seen in the RDRC this season, why not bring them out on one of the most gruelling test we can think of - the Monte Carlo rally. As usual the conditions in the southern french mountain regions are changing from the bare roads in the valleys to the snowy roads in the mountains. Choose tires wisely!

    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. You can still be banned from the RBR Club, even though you do not lose your RD License, but you cannot drive if you don't have a license.

    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."

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. The R5 cars are pretty forgiving cars to drive, as they are reasonably light, and has 4WD. The down-side to the cars are the lack of torque on the lower revs, so keeping the momentum up in both chassis and engine is crucial to good times. Oh, and managing the tire strategy, naturally.

    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.There is a NEW password for both the servers(sessions) and teamspeak. Please check it out here!

    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:
    Magnar Hårstadsveen - 4 stage wins
    Ole Marius Myrvold - 3 stage wins
    Sam McDonald - 1 stage win

    Congratulations to Magnar and Michael on the podium with me this week, and thanks to everyone who participated! finally I managed to create a Monte Carlo rally that worked the way I wanted with tyre tactics, hopefully you had as fun as I had. The rally was tough indeed, with one trap that in particular could catch people out. The fight for the win and for the podium was very tight throughout the rally, hopefully we'll keep the close fights going during 2015 :)

    Well that was slippery :p Happy that I didn't retire any stages though I CFH'd twice.

    e. Also I loved the Peugeot, will surely be a vehicle candidate for RDRC!
