    With a cheap price tag compared to other rally cars, the Ford Fiesta ST is one of the entry-level cars in the sport in the recent years. We will take the car for a spin on well known, simple stages to prove ourselves worthy this week.

    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. FWD and low on power - keep the momentum going without too much sliding!

    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:
    Jonatan Åcerclinth - 3 stage wins
    Roy Magnes - 3 stage wins

    Congratulations to Magnus and Jonatan on the podium with me this week, and thank you to the ones that did participate :) Keegan had a very good pace too, but as he was in the wrong Ford, he is placed at the bottom of the list. Next weeks rally will be posted tomorrow, stay tuned :)

    Todays top tip - brake early! This car has stock brakes, so they are incredibly weak compared to the ones found on the regular machines we're using in the club!

    was just a few seconds too late for SS1, and wasn't feeling it on SS2. Dirt Rally has been corrupting my brain... :D

  17. The car was very frustrating to drive, way too "top heavy" if that makes any kind of sense, especially with my driving style which didn't gell at all with the car.

    Still happy with a couple of good stages, especially Sikakama where I felt like I made no misstakes, I made a couple of small ones but was able to keep it on the right side of the limit :)

  18. Old good chirdonhead makes a crappy car fun. That stage still gives a good feeling to a simracer when completed good. The slow Ford was flying in there.

    A suggestion from me after teamspeak session with Roy, Magnar and Ole yesterday. We talked about the end of Richard Burns on RD.
    What about a LAST 3 RALLIES IN A SMALL SERIES TO CROWN THE LAST RD RALLYCHAMPION ON RICHARD BURNS ORIGINALS. Only with original stages cars weather+ Back to the beginning?? Go out with a Originals champion :cool:
