    This time we will attempt to do what Peugeot couldn't do! We shall save the Whale... 307! A car so large, so lazy, so not functioning, that it made Marcus Grönholm go nuts. It's out time to go nuts now!

    General RBR Club Rally Rules:

    1. You need to be a licensed member to take part in this event. Gaining a license is a very easy thing to do. Just click here and you will get a license for in a day or two!

    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. Even though it is way to large for being a rally car, and impossible to take sharp turns without cutting the car in half. It does have a lot of power, and handles surprisingly normal for a WRC car! So watch out!

    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 RSRBR2013, 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 outhere!

    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 noone gets in any trouble!

    Stage wins:
    Roy Magnes - 4 stage wins
    Matt Priest - 2 stage wins
    Mick Aspinal - 1 stage win
    Pinky - 1 stage win

    Well done to everyone competing, and congratulations to the podiums :) A tough challenge to bring this huuuge car around some of the narrower roads, but it seems like most of us made it without too much drama.

    Next week we will head back in time for our next driver tribute to an italian world champion - stay tuned :)

    And as always, if you are unsure about what the car looks like, or need a quick sample on the surface we will drive on.
