  3. Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    This week we have something special, designed by Tom Peters. It will be a double Tribute Rally, recognizing two past Rally Drivers / Co-drivers who may not be well known outside of their respective Countries, Gareth Roberts (Co-Driver) from the UK, and Matthew Marker (Driver) from the USA. Both tragically lost their young lives in Rally crashes.

    We have two Rallys in one, with a choice of cars relevant to the Driver / Co-driver being honored, R2 Ford Fiesta FWD (Gareth Roberts) or Group N Subaru Impreza N12 4WD (Matt Marker), choose your preference. Results will be separated for both Classes.

    These cars are very different, as expected. We opted to run each class separately because their relative performances are not equal. The Stages are varied, but are designed to best match the environment that each Tribute Driver / Co-driver participated in.

    We return to REALISTIC damage which will add more challenge.


    1. These cars are very different, with totally different handling characteristics. The Ford is typical FWD and quite stable, the Subaru is typical Group N 4WD and should be familiar to most by now. Both cars should be quite stable and fun to drive.

    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 RSRBR2012, please beware that sometimes it may give you the wrong tyre for the conditions. Always double check your tyres, it is critical, especially when changing to Snow Stages.

    4. Special note re PTD RallyeSprint (SS07). This stage has a very blind turn-off to a side road at the end. If you miss this turn-off and go straight ahead, the stage will end and you incur a penalty time.
    Please read this note at RallyeSim which explains it. It is recommended that drivers run a test run to familiarize themselves with it.

    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).

    Many thanks to Tom for designing this Rally. Thanks also to Damien for the nice Banner.

    Good luck all, choose your preferred car or Driver / Co-driver to honor.

    For some background, here are a couple of Tribute video's for both Gareth and Matthew.

    Never knew who Matt was (RIP), but definitely knew who Gareth was. will definitely be gunning for him. So sad.
    Lets hope I can get a good place this time for him :)

    I'm surprised it's not the Fiesta S2000 O__o
  6. Sorry Fernando, you can drive in both but only one will count. :p
  7. Keegan Rees- CossieWRC - Ford Fiesta R2 - OC4
    Never knew who Matt was (RIP), Gareth was local to me, such a sad thing to happen, a huge loss of talent.
  8. Tom Peters - Jumpiest Eel - Ford Fiesta R2 - US
    Woke up early just to sign up. Thanks so much for making this event!
  9. What is this, Fernando picks one car, everyone else pick the other? Pft, wusses :p

    I probably won't be able to run this one, very busy that whole week. Will see.

  10. I picked two cars because it's a double tribute, but I later realized this gave the slower members of our club a chance to shine! I picked it as a form of training because I'm running the DS3 R3 in the championship.
  11. Alasdair Beck - boybeck - EUX

    I'll go Subaru. I didn't know about Matt but I think he should be represented.

    Yeah, I've been thinking about that too. I'll see how numbers go and if there still arent that many I'll swap to represent Matt :)

    Could I have a 9:00 GMT session on monday, please? :)

  15. Sion Williams - RS Williams - Fiesta R2 - EU

    Deffo Gunning for Gareth or 'Jaffa' as we all knew him as. Having had the honour of competing against him a few times and having had a quick chat with him on events it would be rude not to!

    Such a sad loss to the sport as he was defiantly going to the top with Craig.


    These stickers and nav bags have been made to sell and all proceeds go to the Gareth Roberts Foundation for aspiring you navigators and event safety in Europe.

    Had also not heard about Matthew, very tragic news and also effects everyone in our sport.

    As the tribute video says, Rally In Piece! I'm sure 'Jaff' is in his Group '4 Door' Escort!

  19. I'm used to getting beaten by Fernando, so I'll go Subaru to help even the numbers up.
  20. I'm surprised at how many people choose the little Fiesta over the 4WD Impreza.

    I've got my work cut out for me...
