The rallies will be different when it comes to the amount of services and length of stages The amount of stages will be 12 for each rally (as that is maximum for a single rally). However, some rallies will have more services than others, we will play around with "remote service", "overnight service" etc. Hopefully we'll be able to make the rallies feel different enough from each other with the help of this.From my past experience in Dirt Rally 2.0 Championships, I have seen that there is no incentive to change wheel materials, just soft all the way; even in highly abrasive stages like Argentina.
If service areas are sparse and far between the pilots must take in to account not only the car conservation but also wheel strategy:
I know that the longer a service area arrive the more dangerous the rally for beginers (and everyone), but also the more strategy that come in to play.
- soft and be fast in the first 50km and slide till the next service area
- or hard wheels and keep the car in the road for more time.
Last season it ranged from service after 2 short Monte stages, to service every 3rd stage in Greece, to 2 services in 20 stages in Wales. Sadly due to DR2.0 limitations we cannot emulate the real life in that way this time, but we'll give it our best shot. Trust me
