    Oh so eventful rally this evening; many many rolls and excursions through the undergrowth.

    Night+snow+blizzard+over 100km/h=hold on tight and hope to still have 4 wheels at the end!

    Fantastic fun, thanks for organising the event - good luck to you all.

    This was a really interesting Rally, lots of variation, especially the weather. Nothing like trying to keep a Subaru on the road in snow, blizzards, with trees, logs, and assorted hazards all around you.
    I wasn't feeling too well for this one, and was almost going to pull out, but I still enjoyed it. I just got slower and slower towards the end as my concentration went elsewhere. Had plenty of the usual "moments but the spectators do a wonderful job of pushing me back on track.

    Good to have Damien, Peter, and Rob join us tonight. Great to chat with Peter and Damien over TS too, thanks guys.

    Thanks Andrew, yet another well thought out Rally and I'm sure Richard Burns and Colin McRae would have been proud.

    Got off to a rough start (still in GT mode) but gained ground and reeled in the scratch times. Then the intermittent freezing of the game came back. Bugger.

    Edit: Found the problem, was right under my nose! Teamspeak! :shakeyfistatthethingthatruinedmyrallythatwassupposedtoaddtotheexperience:

    And congrats Bjorn, won the EU session on his first go :thumb: and to Lewis for coming out of nowhere :)

    here we go!

    http://forum.racedepartment.com/413544-post3.html

    from next week, in the uk at least, the clocks go back :hallelujah:

    that means the eu start time will move to 20:00 GMT....
    not sure this happens simultaneously over ze globe though... so can OCN and US regulars let me know if your start times need adjusting (and if not, shout up when they do!)

    in other news - jason hasn't signed up for the US event in over a month... so aaron - if you want the start time moving, am cool to give you priority mate... :thumb:

    The timezones in Australia get messy now too with some parts adopting daylight saving, and others (like Queensland where I live) not.
    I'm happy to stick with the current timings but will also be ok if others want to change.
    Will the French RBR lobby be changing the overall time settings?? It's all getting confusing now.

    yep... eu mostly moves with the uk, i think... so i would expect those to change from next week as well... though, (hopefully), the servertime is largely irrelevant so long as we stick to the GMT time as always....

    as you know, there's always a week or two of messy transition around this time of year :becky:... i'll let you all know about the server after sunday :wink:

    Wow! Another surprise result but good to see so many people sharing stage wins. You can never be sure what to expect from these Rally's, one tiny mistake can end it all so fast.
    Well done to Aaron and Damien for the podium, we managed to shut the Euro contingent out this time. (is that Mark thinking about picking up the soap? :poke::rotfl: ).

    I really enjoyed driving the Subaru though, especially in the blizzard.

    Nice driving Warren! If not for a drop over a bridge requiring a CFH I might have edged you out :). I'm really enjoying these rallies. Keep in up Andrew!

    Let me think about the timing, I'll get back to you. If Jason can make it I don't mind keeping the times the same, but if it's just me an hour earlier would be nice. I'm pretty tired the next day as it is. :yawn2:

    Great job everyone!

    You are correct regarding EU dear boy, but the States goes a week later (we're the 25th Oct, they're 1st Nov).

    oh, i'd also like to say that those inconspicuous looking wooden fences that line the edges of some corners are the MOST LETHAL road side objects in the ENTIRE game.... :becky:
