On the iOpener website there is a very interesting article about an upcoming World Rally Championship simulator:

World Rally Championship's next game: Racing live against rally heroes

The next generation WRC computer game will allow players to 'compete' in live rallies", states ISC chairman Neil Duncanson in the April version of SportBusiness International magazine. ISC, the global promoter of the World Rally Championship (WRC), mentions WRC's ultimate goal as building up an online gaming world championship alongside the real thing.
ISC and the computer gaming industry believe the next step in gaming is this 'live' competition between gamers and real drivers, made possible through iOpener's patented technology.
ISC CEO Simon Long says: "Now we are a global promoter, we want this to be multi-platform, multi-publisher, multi-territory."
For Long and Duncanson the new game is part of WRC's broader efforts to appeal new fans beyond the hardcore enthusiastics. FIA's chairman Max Mosley has said the virtual champion will be honoured at the WRC's annual end-of-season awards ceremony in Monaco.

Last April we already brought you the first news about iOpener Media's beta testers recruitment for their Real Time Racing project.

The news about this technology where virtual racers can compete against the real drivers on the track in real time is now spreading amoung the simracing communities.

iOpener is still looking for the worlds best simracers to join their beta test program that's about to start soon. If you are interested in joining then you can sign up on the RTR website

WRC 4 is great game but I hope that in next game Milestone doen't make special stages from on big stage.

I hope that Milestone modelling real stages to next games of WRC series. If stage is too long example Lankamaa Finland is 20 km long, stage can divide to little pieces.
Example:
-Small5 km
-Medium 10 km
-Long15 km
-Full 23 km

That is because it is pretty hard to drive big stages without mistakes but that is why I playing driving games: challence.

Other ways to make it that in next game there is modelling like 25 % of real track and other 75 % is fiction. But one track what I want real track and full size is Ouninpohja which is 33 km long

Can someone please tell me how this compares to RBR / RSRBR ? is it any good ? is it worth buying the game ? (not interested in arcade racing)

It's not even in the same planet. The FFB is very bad, Graphics are obviously much better than RBR but I cannot think of a single thing where WRC4 (or 3) is better than RBR beside the graphics.

Guys, I want to render some WRC cars with 3DS Autodesk but I don't know how to have access to the car 3d's. I already knew how to extract the .mix files, but how do I open the .bin and convert it to 3ds?
