Finally done with the freezing weather in RDRC, and time to get on to the gravel! Up into the mountains of Argentina, and we'll have the shortest rally of the season. At least in distance, but it's narrow, technical and very challenging, so it certainly won't feel like a short rally.

Rally Sweden brought us new a new overall-winner, and new class winners. It also caused quite a bit of change in the championship-standings. This is something we expect to see after Argentina as well as the rally is a completely different beast compared to the first two rallies. To read more about the upcoming rally, how Rally Sweden unfolded, a feature on our real world WRC-2 team participating in RDRC and more, take a look at our Argentina Rally Magazine.

And with all this information, the thread for Rally Argentina is... open. A bit over a day until the rally starts, and it's time for the drivers and crews to avoid all the stones!

On behalf of the whole RDRC-Crew, I wish everyone a great time in the Argentine mountains. Remember to take care of your car, tyres and on the first day, also your lights! Have fun!

Wow, feeling kind this week with a third service I see! Think there are a good few of us who might end up needing it, especially with that brutal night section. Gonna be a tough rally but very fun so good luck everybody because I think some of us amateurs need it! Actually, the more I think about it the more I think we're all gonna need it :laugh:

Maybe it's kind, maybe it's not. There's a risk in it ;P

I think that's worth a test or two ;) Especially considering the wet stage on the last loop, and the relative short distance on the rally.

Now, 0, 1 or 2 spares that will be a question!

First of all: Once again a big thank you to everybody involved who makes this championship happen, be it organizing stuff, driving as a competitior or even having schizophrenic traits and doing both like @Ole Marius Myrvold and @Daniel Monteiro are doing :p

Not really feeling too well if I look at the stages, or the rally location per se. Argentinia is something I very much tried to avoid while playing the game normally. Also the amount of practice runs we at Missed Apex Racing had was a bit compromised this time as @Michael Springer and myself participated in the 12 Hours of Bathurst in iRacing yesterday.

So that only leaves us with enough time to go to Argentinia by plane just now - cars should have arrived already, but I really hope that the team buffed out the dents and scratches already. Not like thats worth anything, as the rocks will probably do their thing again this time. :rolleyes:

To all the drivers out there - good luck! And most importantly enjoy it. See you out on stage guys.

Practice is going really well! :unsure: What a challenge, wow.

Good! I mean, not good that you are getting into issues when practicing, but good that it might be a very challenging rally. I think I said it in the Sweden-thread. When I started watching WRC it was "Monte - Sweden - Massive Challenge" for the first three events :p

It's easy to see where the inspiration are coming from :whistling:

haha, same here, did one of the long stages at night and could keep those fancy extra lights on for maybe one third of the stage. in the more labyrinthian parts they are not so important anyway, but in the open country ... well, whatever, we all love a challenge! this is going to be fun. will be testing the other long stage in rain later this evening, and then: bring on Monday!
