RDRC S9 Round 3 - Rally Argentina (1st March - 7th March 2021)

Thank´s a lot to the organizers a lot off work very professionally done. I did a couple of real life rallys as an amateur 30 years ago. Some of them were not as professional organized as far as I remember... My first Rally in this championship ever, looks like it will be a tough one... Good Luck to all ! Have Fun
 
finished my prep by doing two more of the long stages, one in rainy conditions (which i actually liked more than the dry, weird) and one in said dry conditions. it's a bouncy ride in the group A lancia, will probably split the rally in three bits again but not following the rhythm given by organizers: stages 1-4, then 5-8 and then the rest. love how it's divided in the short and long bits, great layout of stages!

When testing, we, too, found that the wet conditions make the gravel more bearable, weirdly enough.
I guess this is because it slightly flattens out the bumps, and makes any dust disappear as the rain collects it. This might be the first rally where I prefer rain over sunshine! :D
 
This time we are actually going to split the Rally as per the days due to Argentinia giving us a bit of motion sickness actually. Especially SS2 is leaving me nauseous. Not sure how I would survive this rally in RL. :sick:

Feel free to join the fun at ~ 7:15pm CET today at
:thumbsup:

Also got a pedal cam now by the way, please check it out and tell me what you think about it :D

Update: Seems like we might just pull through today in one sitting cause tomorrow we couldn't do it as a group due to real life conflicts, oh well, so watch me vomit live on stream.

Poop! Excel and me! It's clear at night.
I didn't even spot that when I set up the sessions and compared them to the itinerary! At least it's just a cosmetic thing, nothing that actually will cause any issues. Fixing the itinerary now.

Me being live in 2 minutes... Müller Motorsport at ARG Pt. 2

Paul's run wasn't that satisfying for him, so we had a little chat afterwards, drank some beer (To all those kids out there: DON'T DRINK & DRIVE) and as he went home now it's my turn in the Delta HF.

Cheerio Miss Sophy!
 
That's an "This could've been made harder - almost". :whistling:

lol, just finished the first day (5 stages) and i think it's stage 01 that will decide the rally, that switch from early morning sun to deep shadows as you start the climb is utterly distracting! had a half spin there as it was just pitch black in one or two places and i couldn't find the light switch what with all the speed and the action ...
then i tackled the four night stages, which only a truly ... mind could have put on the agenda. kept the fancy extra lights intact for 2.7 of these stages, but a crash into one of those smallish walls along the side of the track and a missed bridge in stage 2 led to my cooler slowly dying and with it my motor and the power available. last two segments i was crawling and motor spluttered off as i crossed the finish line. survived, but just so.
Those four stages will dash many a hope as the week progresses.

So I managed to survive the night stages (incredibly I never even damaged a headlight) and am having a good duel with Walttu77 on the PS4 J-RDRC leaderboard - I seem to recall our times were pretty close on Monte Carlo? I also squeezed in stages 6 and 7 tonight, video to follow soon! It's very easy to get complacent on the shorter legs, you've really got to avoid losing concentration.

Not looking forward to the last set of stages which I'll probably tackle tomorrow, running essentially 4 and a half full stages on one set of tyres is a very foolish thing to do... it would be good if there was an option to bring 4 spare tyres and change them after stage 10 :)
