    The already record-breaking RDRC is soon live with it's second round of the championship, this time in fast and snowy Sweden. With 300 starters in Monaco, Sweden might see even more drivers try to tackle the 137.78km spread out over 17 stages.

    The Swedish rally is building on the immense success of Rally Monte-Carlo, which saw Diogo Velosa win the rally ahead of Jon Joannidis and Lukas Wahlen. The 4WD- class saw Miguel Figueiredo win ahead of Ethan O'Hagan and Alexandre Chaino. In 2WD+ it was a 1-2 team finish for Peugeot Team Sweden, with Tommie Lindberg winning ahead of Jimmy Bogren. Norbert Leitner took 3rd. Lastly, in the 2WD- class it was a complete Opel dominance, with Caramidaru Andrei Bogdan winning ahead of Ismail Yakubu and Kieran Poole.

    As always, here is the checklist for the RDRC Events
    • Check that your name in the league on dirtgame.com is the same that you have signed up with - if not, you can notify the score-keeper here. Remember that changing Steam nickname can change your name on dirtgame.com
    • Check that you are indeed registered to your correct league, PC, PS4 or xBox One. You can find your leagues here
    • Remember to check the Directors Note Thread in case of rule changes or important notices. The thread is here.
    • If you are not signed up yet, and wish to participate in the Championship, you can do so by signing up here

    For a full overview of all the stages for Rally Sweden including descriptions and length, full results from the previous event, and maybe most important, a proper guide on how to drive on snow and with snowbanks. Head in to our snowy edition of the Rally Magazine!

    Another funny little error is Joonas Raivio's surname which is spelled "Raivo" in the magazine. Raivo means "rage" in Finnish so I hope that isn't a hint about him road-raging or anything :p

    Top-notch work anyways! Really enjoy reading these!

    I would assume that you applied to the correct league for your system on this list?
    The RaceNet league called "racedepartment" was used for club racing here, but have not been used for well over a year ;)

    @Greg Doan As I said in my last post, you must join the correct league (PC, xBox One or Playstation 4) to get the league to show up in your game, and to be able to participate. The link to the different leagues are found in the "How To Drive Online" Thread.
