    Also if I remember correctly Citroen doesn't have Abu Dhabi sponsoring anymore, that's one of the reasons they don't (can't) run 3 cars this year.

    I'm hoping that the signing of Loeb will be the push that Hyundai needs to get their car really competitive again. If so then Neuville might surprise us all again..

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Remarks mostly by people like yourself who haven't even played the game themselves yet but only saw some limited footage. So you explain me now then why everyone here who tested the game so far says that the physics really are better? Just want to point out that we did not test the Porsche nor the cambered roads of Spain.  My bad, I thought tarmac had been tested as well. Thanks for the correction :)

    Both! We're setting up for the live stream at the moment - we're having a few issues with the office being half empty, but doing everything we can to prep. Either way. there will be at least one new video tomorrow....  With new cars?

    There's a note about preorder on the website of bol.com: It's in Dutch though: "Pre-order bonus Pre-order Dirt Rally 2.0 en ontvang een DLC voor de Opel Kadett. Pre-order codes worden op dag van release per mail verstuurd. " Which translates into; "Pre-order bonus Pre-order Dirt Rally 2.0 and receive a DLC for the Opel Kadett. Pre-order codes will be sent by email on the day of release."

    So rumours are now that Hyundai is also trying to offer Loeb a contract for next season to drive on select WRC rallies. *Edit*: Apparantly Breen is also in talks with M-Sport & Hyundai Sources: -  Loeb & Hyundai: http://www.sports.fr/auto-moto/rallyes-wrc/articles/rallye-loeb-avec-hyundai-en-2019-2335559/ -  Breen: "Citroen's two-car plans also leaves Craig Breen without the chance to remain at the team, although he is still in negotiations with Hyundai and M-Sport for 2019." https://www.autosport.com/wrc/news/140455/loeb-wont-get-citroen-wrc-outings-in-2019

    Thinking back about games like 1995 Network Q RAC Rally Championship and Mobil 1 Rally Championship 2000 with 20min long stages, that was awesome

    That black rim against the wall in the background of that video looks like a speedline corse sl1408. Those were fitted to group A saxo's. Citroen Saxo confirmed!

    Yes I would love to get the Maxi Megane to join the Kit Car class, and maybe the 1985 R5 Maxi Turbo 2? :p

    So when Ogier has dips and makes mistakes that cost him points & rallies, it's no problem because he is consistent? But when other drivers experience the same (even then it's mostly about Neuville that people talk, Tanäk is also still consistent...) they are dissappointing? Sorry but that's utter bullsh*t. Let's compare Ogier, Neuville & Tanäk's results from this season. Ogier: 4 wins, 6 top5 finishes, 2x 10th place & 1 retirement Neuville: 3 wins, 6 top5 finishes, 1x 6th, 1x 9th, 1x 16th & 1 retirement (18pts less than Ogier) Tanäk: 4 wins, 2 top5 finishes, 1x 6th, 1x 9th, 1x 14th, 1x 19th & 2 retirements. (38pts less than Ogier) So explain me again why Neuville is so dissappointing and didn't deserve the WRC crown? You all talk about such a bad second half of the season, I only see a bad result in Finland (because the car itself seems to be having problems with Finnish gravel roads) and  in Turkey where Ogier also didn't do well. Neuville also did most of the work (if not all) on his own with no (or not much) backup from his teammates or teamorders (maybe once in Spain where Sordo dropped behind Neuville on the last day?). Ogier had to rely on teamorders much more, needing his teammates to take penalties and such or deliberately checking in late himself to get better position for the powerstage. Which forced the FIA to make rules about the powerstage and checking in late. Tanäk had a superb second half with 3 wins in a row but then halted with mechanical issues, but his first half of the season wasn't so good. Didn't see people call that dissappointing though... And yes you can all call me a fanboy, all you want, I just can't stand it anymore seeing people bashing his performance when it's not so much worse (or actually even better) than Ogier's or Tanäk's. *Edit*: 1 thing that I will admit though is that he was a bit overconfident after Spain, where he said he will be champion after Australia because of Ogier having to clean again. And Hyundai for doing the same thing and hyping Neuville to be champion after Australia. They really shouldn't have done that

    In that facebook post they're saying that the seasons dlc will bring more content (cars & tracks). So that would mean that they actually are new cars and not unlocks in the game itself?

    I also came across some rumours that the organisers of the Monte Carlo rally are talking about the return of another manufacturer for the 2019 WRC.

    Neuville won last year starting from 2nd position, but on the other hand Ogier was already champion then so he most probably didn't put that much effort into it. Weather will also be very important I think. I saw youtube videos from Hyundai testing in Australia on flooded & very muddy roads, but at the moment it looks much drier.

    @ChristinaMc a few questions if u're allowed to answer them please? 1) When the full car list will be revealed, could u tell us then also which cars have had their real engine sounds recorded? 2) Is the Mitsubishi Evo X still RHD or did u manage to license the LHD one? 3) Will the 1995 Impreza have the real group A interior?

    Also those hand gestures by the driver at the end of the Argentinia stage looked really cool

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    The FIA is splitting WRC2 into 2 categories. Pro will be only for manufacturer backed cars with professional drivers just like the normal WRC class. The regular WRC2 will be just for privateers. By doing this the FIA hopes to attract more privateer cars who they think that couldn't be bothered because of the factory entered cars.

    Also a small detail, I already asked Paul about that when the first Dirt Rally was released but for some reasons I forgot, it wasn't possible. But I'd still love to see a little light inside the car on the codriver side for reading his pacenotes during night or evening stages. Small detail but still it would be really nice for realism though.

    Real Gr.4 Escort MkII this time? Looks like it I think, no roof scoop anymore for starters. *Edit*: On facebook they call it the 1976 Escort, so I guess we get the real classic this time :)

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    All 3 title contenders have had their struggles this season. Yes even Ogier made quite a lot of stupid mistakes in his new role of being the hunter. Neuville has simply matured a bit more compared to previous years, trying to manage his lead more than just going flat out to stay ahead. And to be honest I think he's done a good job managing his lead for such a long time compared to last year. Also he's the only one of the 3 who finished and scored points on every rally so far, with only 3 times outside the top 5. Last year he won rally Australia from starting 2nd on the road so this will indeed be a very interesting end of the season.

    Well played by Evans pulling rocks onto the final stage costing Neuville 3rd place o/a...
