    This rally is another testrally for the fifth RDRC season. Here we will test out different car classes for the WRC 2 class in RDRC. Because the cars have different performance the RDRC Crew would greatly appreciate that all the different classes will be run in this rally.

    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, albeit with a small tweak. You need to keep one wheel on the road at all times. 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."


    1. This/These cars are 4WD, some have turbo, some have not. They handle like all 4WD's, but they do require different driving styles. You are adviced to test each car on a stage before you start the rally!

    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 one of the R4, S2000 or A8 Packs you intend to use! Links can be found in Post 1.

    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!

    7. There are many car packs for this rally, all pack varies in performance. To give the RDRBR admins a best possible foundation to evaluate what classes that fits in the WRC 2 category, please also note what class you plan to drive, and try to have at least some drivers in all the different cars.

    8. The last stage of this rally is long. It is 35km, and will take 15-20 minutes to drive, depending on how fast you drive, and how many mistakes you make. The stage is fast, with lots of jumps, and demands much more concentration than other long stages like Mont Herman or Pikes Peak. A good advice is to take a breather before the stage!

    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!

    Another rally is here! Please do note that some General Rules have been added. You will need to read those.
    Failing to read, and understand both the RBR Rally Club rules, and the general RaceDeparment rules, can lead to a ban from parts of the site, if not the whole. It is not adviced to take a gamble that you know about the rules. It will only take a few minutes to read.

    Thank you on the behalf of the whole RD and the RBR Club Crew! :)

    A lot of cars too chose from this time round :o. I think I'd probably be likely to be in WRC-3 or WRC-2 for the RDRC, so I want to make sure to use this opportunity to pick a car I would be comfortable driving for an entire season. I'll edit this post once I've picked a car, but it will probably be an S2000 or RRC car, I didn't feel entirely comfortable with the R4 in the event a few weeks back, and A8 are probably too powerful for me.

    Looking forward to Ouninpohja though :o 35km!

    EDIT: Me messing up, not thinking! If you read this before I edited, just forget it Michael :p I initially thought that RRC wasn't included :)

    I will take the Fiesta RRC, very fun to drive and want to see how it compares to people driving S2000 cars.

    (Assuming I understand the last two posts correctly that RRC is allowed :p)

    RRC is allowed, I just had a brainfart that Jack wanted to take blame for, then it got sorted out in the backroom ! :p

    By looking at the official rallyesim rallies, it seems like the fastest RRC drivers are faster than the S2000 guys, while there are more S2000 beating RRC cars than opposite. If that made any sense?

    So basically I have to be a good driver or else I'll be in the back of the pack?

    Wah! Don't put it that way. Now I'll feel really bad if you end up behind some S2000 cars [​IMG]

    Well, it's all down to driving style I guess. I can't be faster with an RRC car even if my life depends on it! :p

    Yeah, I'm absolutely horrid with the S2000 cars, I feel much better driving the RRC. I'm not too fussed if I end up not being quick, as long as I have fun doing it, and learn so I can improve next time, then it's worth doing! (So don't feel bad :p)

    Since it's not very likely that I'll drive on WRC2 next season I'll just pick something on the heat of the moment before the rally :)
  17. John Cunningham - HH_BF1 - EU - RRC
  18. Sion Williams - RS Williams - EU

    I'll be going in either the Sierra Cosworth or Escort Cosworth, defiantly from the A8 packs either way.
  19. Rob Venn - Rotaxmax07 - EU Ford Fiesta S2000
    Not sure why I have chosen it as I can really tell the difference between the S2000 and RRC car only the sound
  20. Ole Marius Myrvold

    Ole Marius Myrvold

    S2000 is without turbo, and needs to be driven at high RPM all the time, and quite aggressive to be fast. While the RRC have turbo, and is better under 5500RPM like the Gr.N/A & WRC cars :)
