    • You will require the RSRBR 2013 Mod & Update 01, in order to participate!
    • You will also require the R4 car pack.
    • Teamspeak is highly recommended, and adds to the fun.
    • It is not mandatory, but we advise everyone driving to follow this link and install the patch for update 01.
    IMPORTANT:
    • Please sign up in the following format: RD Name - RSRBR2013 Name - Session.
    • Take a screenie of RSCenter, or save your times, showing your final results at the end of the rally (including the car you drove!). This is in case any of your stages are missed by the server.

    Welcome to the first rally of 2013, first rally with RSRBR 2013, and first rally with the R4 cars.
    The rally was an idea from Jack Hintz who wanted to test the R4 cars, and some stages that often are causing problems for drivers before the new RDRC season. This will mainly be a test to see if the stages are causing PC errors or not.


    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. This car is 4WD and handling should be familiar to those used to WRC cars. They are extremely similar to Gr.N, but with a tad more power.

    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. This means the R4 car pack!

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

    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! :)

  4. Sounds interesting but will have to get everything (mainly check stages and R4) installed before I say that I will join or not but could be good fun :)

    Can't wait to get back into it after so long, especially with a few tweaks to my setup ;)
    Yes, I was playing these stages online just after update 1 got released, and all the original format stages either ended up loading like BTB stage then crashing, or having 2 maps in one (PTD was really bad with this).
    I don't know if anybody else is having the same issues, I've already reinstalled and everything, but still the same O_o I can't organise RDRC to commence until these issues are fixed ;)

    I'd recommend that you read this post, especially porridges comments about BTB (or former BTB) stages:

    http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/rsrbr2013-update-01.62667/

    Don't know if it is related to your problems Jack, but it looks like everyone should install the latest Correction / Fix to be sure.

    Unfortunately, I still don't have a fully installed and updated RSRBR2013 to test it.

    I am working late this week, so I will have to have an early session.

    For the next few weeks we will test out some combinations of cars and stages with thought of the RDRC here in the rally club, so it would be nice if as many drivers as possible joined and left us some feedback on cars and stages so Jack can make a list of what to use and what not to use this year :)

    You have all the stages. If I'm not wrong, is it impossible to start RSRBR without the track-pack innstalled (not BTB).

  10. If I don't need the BTB tracks I will be able to participate I think :)

    I will try the cars and come back with my sign-up tomorrow or later tonight dependent on how quick I like the cars and so on :D

  13. Nice to see the first event this year!:)
    Monday is not the best day for me but I will do my best to participate in the EU zone
     
  14. I wonder when will the Grading test restart:D
    Likely skipping this event but consider I may end-up in a R4 so I need some time to consider...
