    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    We have an Aussie themed rally this time, featuring the Historic RWD cars which are still very popular in Australian Rallys.

    Drivers are free to choose any of the Historic cars available in the Group_H car pack. Please note however, these cars do vary considerably in power and handling, some cars are more difficult to drive than others, with power vs handling being a tricky trade-off. It is recommended that drivers choose a car that they feel comfortable with, as this may prove to yield their best times.

    These cars are all RWD, so the handling is unique and may require delicate control of the throttle. All can be a lot of fun with plenty of tail end sliding on offer.

    Stages are mostly Gravel, but a couple of Mix Mod Stages are included.

    We will use REALISTIC damage, but weather conditions are generally very good, typical Aussie weather. This should allow drivers to get the most fun from these cars.


    1. These cars are typical RWD Rally cars, but some are trickier to drive than others. Choose your car wisely as some are quite a handful. Patience, self control, and a light right foot will be rewarded. Also, the Handbrake will not work with these RWD cars.

    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 when changing to Snow Stages.

    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).

    In addition, we have the added bonus for the Rally winner, choosing the details for the nominated Club Rally on 2nd & 3rd April 2012. (as per the proposal submitted by Fernando Agapito).

    Good luck all, and hope you enjoy these Historic RWD Classics. Happy sliding . :D

    PLEASE NOTE: I have adjusted the Start times for North America, based on DST commencing in the USA 11th March.

    I've left the US Start time as 2:30 GMT (10:30 PM Eastern) which was the compromise used last rally, but taking into consideration that DST will have started.
    Please let us know if that doesn't suit the US drivers.

    ALL USA Drivers: Please check your RSCenter timezone offsets, to ensure synchronisation to the Server.

    you sir, win. I can't wait for this event!!
    Can't decide on which car to take though, the escort is a bit of a beast :p
    sucks we can use the other old RWD ones like the celica though, that would be epic :p

    This should be fun. No clue what car to choose, possibly the lovely Volvo, if it's in that pack.
  8. Warren Dawes

    Warren Dawes

    It is. ;)
    The Volvo and the Starlet are the easiest to drive, but one is very heavy and the other is very light, so quite different.

    Oh yeah it's supposed to be just a bonus and not an obligation :D. Thanks for considering it Warren :)

    Jack, I hear you and I did consider it this time. However with RSRBR2012 Update 03 due this weekend, and not knowing what might be included or changed, I didn't want to widen the risks.
    I also think we have plenty of choice available in Group_H, and I didn't want drivers to have to spend excessive time testing heaps of cars to make their choice. :)
