Where does R4 fit in?

Discussion in 'DiRT Rally' started by David Brock, Dec 13, 2015.

  1. I'm just curious where the R4 class fits into the 2000's and the 2010's. What's the difference?

    R4 is a more tuned Group N-car, but still within the old rules of weigth etc.
    So compared to a WRC car, an R4 has less power and higher weigth, other than that they are pretty similar. The premise of Group N (and R4) is a simpler, cheaper and slower car than the WRC's.

  4. The R4 cars are the kind of vehicle you see a lot in country-level rallies. So not factory-backed WRC competition, but privateers buying a rally car and taking it out on local rallies.

    Motors TV shows lots of these kinds of rallies throughout the year.

    Affordable for national rallies. They go alongside 2010's timeline-wise, as a privateer class.

    Way newer than 2000's class, but still slower.
