    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    Back to something a little more "civilised" than last week's ultimate challenge. This one is based on recommendations from Jeremy Loveland. We will be running a single car, the Toyota Celica, which proved highly successful in earlier WRC development in the hands of drivers like Carlos Sainz, Juha Kankkunen, and Didier Auriol in the 1990's.

    The car used in RBR is the later model ST205, and this car has recently been updated in RSRBR2011. It has an excellent model, very nice drivers cockpit, and drives nicely. It is 4WD and pretty fast too. The new RSRBR model has a couple of neat little exe's that allow you to change the lights and wheel rims, have a look under the Cars\CELICA_st205_v2 folder.

    The Stages used will vary a lot, covering a selection of Snow, Tarmac, and Gravel. We open with the Snow Stages first, hopefully to prevent any of the strange tyre selection issues that occurred last week.
    This Rally also includes two new Stages that we haven't previously used. Peklo Tarmac in Slovakia is a longish and fairly narrow stage which winds through some great scenery. The final Stage is Mont Herman, found in the BTB USA Stages. This is a long, twisting, gravel stage which climbs a fairly steep ridge before flattening out for some high speed action over the top and down to the finish.
    I’d recommend that all drivers have, at least a brief test run, on these two Stages to get acquainted with them before the Rally.

    Drivers will be relieved to see much milder weather in this Rally, so you can concentrate on the Celica's handling, and nice engine sound.


    1. The car handling of the Celica is typical 4WD and quite nice. However, it seems a bit tailey under heavy braking on Gravel, so I'd recommend adjusting Brake Bias forward for those stages.

    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 RSRBR2011, please beware that sometimes it may give you the wrong tyre for the conditions. Always double check your tyres, it is critical. The safest way is to disable the auto Tyre selection in RSRBR Settings, and get used to selecting tyres yourself.

    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).

    Good luck all, I hope you enjoy this car, and hope we see a good roll up. :rally: :signup:

    I've included some base setups for the Celica in case anyone wants to try them. They should be more stable than default:

    Here is a little video highlighting the development of Toyota in WRC and particularly the Celica. Some nice comments from the great Juha Kankkunen too. :)

    I spent some time testing it today Senad, and found that this Celica has been greatly improved since we last used it.
    Superb new model, and it drives really nicely. :thumb:

    I was most impressed with it, so you may get a pleasant surprise. :wink:

    After my recce run at Peklo, I was impressed with this stage, so I made a little video of the run for anyone who is unfamiliar with it. This is the first time I had seen it, and I must say, it is a class act. Full credit to the makers of this Stage. :thumbup:

    It's a pleasure to drive it with the Celica too.

    I'll let someone else do Mont Herman, it's waaaaaaaaay too long. :rolleyes:
