    Rear wheel drive? Check. Loose surfaces? Check. Powersliding? Check. Fun? Check.

    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. Rear wheel driven cars will inevetably go into huge slides when the power is on, don't overdo it to keep the right pace.

    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!

    Manual gears, check. Manual clutch, check. 720 degrees of wheel rotation, check!

    EDIT: damn, just took the M3 for a spin at Lochard 2... there are just no words in the world to describe how I envy the people driving powerful RWD cars on gravel...!

    @Roy Magnes I really don't want to miss this one but it seems I will be busy this evening.

    Would it be stretching it too much if i ask for a session for tomorrow at 15:00GMT (assuming it's 17:00 in Norway)?

    Drove in the EUX session as I'm working tomorrow so heading to bed when I've written this (was asked earlier this afternoon if I could) so I wish you all good luck :)

    As for me I had a blast even with the misstakes I made, I forgot how heavy and wayward the Volvo can be :roflmao:
    Had 2 spins, one at the second hairpin on Sweet Lamb when I came flying in a bit too hot, put the car sideways and got the front tires caught on the inside post and one at Sipirkakim when I came through full on sideways in the last section, in the hairpin left and the rear end came out into the greenery and hit a set of trees, 360 spin while at the same time throwing it into 1st and was on the power as soon as I saw the road again :rolleyes::roflmao:
    Also hit a bump the wrong way at Sweet Lamb and made a visit down the slope, had to ask the kind onlookers to sit on the bootlid to be able to get back up the hill (CFH) :cautious:

    Other than that had a few good runs through the stages, especially Sipirkakim and Jourdain was very enjoyable and full of sideways action :laugh:

    Have fun and again, good luck everyone :)

    I made it on time for SS3 after solving some overheating issues here.

    I will still drive tomorrow to get SS1 and SS2, and will drive the SS3-SS6 tomorrow for fun :)

    EDIT: Roy, "Dude I almost had you" on Sweet Lamb 2 :D

    EDIT 2: So glad I joined the session tonight, some really close times, loved it! I think we are nip and tuck from SS3 to SS6 actually - looking forward to do it all again tomorrow :inlove:

    How close was that? I think I won by 1,5 seconds over the 4 stages we did together there, really close powersliding :D

  15. I was all alone on EU session. So lonely :( Well tried BMW M3. Was going more sideways than forward. I am always running 4x4 in championship so this was strange. SS1-SS3 went slow but no major errors. On SS4 sweet lamb i struggle a lot in slow technical corners. Lucky to get out of first kilometer :roflmao: One trip to the deep forest also. Since M3 does not have a functional handbrake I did not have the ability to get fast around tight bends. The scandinavian flick needs more practice in this car to speed up. One call for help on loch 2 :cautious:
    Cote d arbroz I struggled a lot with same problems as on sweet lamb.
    But i got through rally without retirement.:)

    Diamond Creek... no words... just a dance... :inlove:

    Sipirkakim did not go so well (3 CFH) as my shifter suddenly started to give in... only 3rd and 4th gears working, the rest completely dead (the leaver wouldn't engage) :cry:

    After 7 years with the G25, it is for the first time giving me trouble so I can't complain :) time to disassemble it and get it sorted.

    Thanks a lot for the extra session Roy! and for the amazing event :thumbsup:
