    The producers have told us that we are not getting paid our salary for the latest season of the show, unless we help then robbing a bank in northern Russia. We have strict order to find a car that blends in with the local population in order to not attract any suspision as we wait outside for the robbery to take place. Since we are Top Gear, we don't take planes when we can drive, so we are off on a high-speed run across Europe to get back to England and divide the loot.

    That is if we can escape across the border and provided that James May's sense of direction is actually working this time...



    1. The LADA is a low powered FWD, and is a very forgiving car to drive. You can throw it around quite a bit, but beware that with the low power it is more efficient to keep it smooth and clean.

    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 for Snow Stages.

    4. Please ensure to install the all the packs needed. This includes the A5_1 Car Pack, and the BTB Sweden stages. All links can be found in the first post by clicking on the name of the pack you want to download.

    5. There is a NEW password for both the servers(sessions) and teamspeak. Please check it out here!

    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).

    Sign ups are now open, lets have some POWEEEEEEEEEER!

    I'm having a really busy start of the week so would it be possible to have another Oceania session on Wednesday morning or an EUY on Tuesday at 20:00 GMT? Thanks :)
  9. Alasdair Beck - Boybeck - EUX

    First time out since Rally of Wales! I'm predicting I'll be a tad rusty.

    I take it 1700 GMT is 1700 scotland time now that daylight savings is done?

    I see that on-one has signed up for any US session yet.
    I would like to remember everyone about that the sessions, have to be requested 12 in advance of the session start. So, if no-one have asked for any US sessions at 1300 / 1500 GMT on Monday - they will not be created!
