The Ford Fiesta 2010 has been excluded due to it being uncompetitive to the others.

2. We may use these cars for the following Rally, so expect to have to choose a different car for that one.

Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

This time we step back a little in power and size to the S2000 class cars. Don’t be fooled though, these cars are little pocket rockets, AWD, and very nimble. These cars may well represent the future of the WRC. For our newer drivers, these cars are also very nice and stable to drive, but will reward a more aggressive driving style.
Our Stages will suit the Gravel jockeys this time, and are restricted to Australia and England, hence the Ashes theme, but as expected, the weather is better in Australia.
In addition, you must select your car from the available list in the sign-up, so early sign-ups get a bigger choice of cars. Don't worry, all cars are closely matched in performance, but may have slightly different handling characteristics. The Stages are varied to help even out any handling variations too.

PLEASE NOTE: We have eliminated the Ford Fiesta 2010; my testing of all cars has revealed that the 2010 car is uncompetitive with the others (slower), this being opposite to the real life Ford Fiesta 2010 car too.

Good luck all, and hope we see a good roll up. :rally:

Credit for the great Event banners goes to Damien, thanks mate

A little video to help you see the car choices.

Hey Warren, unfortunately we are back to a night i am on shift. Can I request Tuesday or Wednesday morning Aust time about 8:30am? If you can swing it...............

Fiesta - I'll drive the only Oz developed s2000 we got;)
Hi Warren, had to go online before work this morning and what a nice surprise to find this video at our forum. Sign me up with the Fiat, please.

You guys are in a bit of strife now! There's gonna be some hot Russian lovin' going on!

(Note - That ain't sideways. This Lada ain't gonna know what's hit it... Apart from the first tree)

Edit - That means I'll take the Russian beauty, thanks Warren.

Let's set one up for Tuesday morning (Aus Time) then.
Rick, I've included an additional Rally "RD Ashes OCX" starting Tuesday 9.00 AM Aussie time for you. I decided to go a little later than 8.30AM since we had problems at that time previously with the Rallyesim Server. I suspect that they do backups around midnight CET.

EDIT: I reckon we should make you drive the Ford Fiesta 2010, just to give us all a better chance. :tongue:
