    SRD - Sim's Racing Design created a custom livery for the Ford Fiesta R5 Mk.II hoping that SRD_FlatOut (me) would be allowed to premiere it at the Dirt World Series Quarter Finals on the 31st October.
    Unfortunately, that might create issues and risk my quarter final. However, if you guys like the design and want to see it released publicly, just react to it and I'll see if it's worthy of release.
    When released, the car will have the option of generic windows (no names) and roof scope (no flag).

    So... it's up to you guys. What do you guys think? Do you want to see this design released?

    Very nice work

    I'd install that skin in my game if it were to be released

    You don't know what I am talking about, so stop embarrassing yourself. THIS is a newer spec of the Fabia, included in Dirt 5. https://www.facebook.com/132609796811597/posts/4221381314601071/

    No there is no new spec and there is no reason at all for you to become so aggressive, the only things you talk about are different lettering and roof scoop but as I explained before the roof scoop is not new, it's the same on both versions of the Fabia R5, only a test car of the Evo model had a different roof scoop. 

    And about your lettering argument, just read this article then from Skoda Motorsport themselves.

    "In line with the new FIA terminology, the ŠKODA FABIA R5 evo has been renamed ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo,"

    "This change, initiated by the FIA, is a purely formal decision, aimed to align the model names to the class designations. There are no changes from the technical point of view, and we will continue to supply our customers around the world with the reliable, high-quality car they know and like"


    Just because it has a new livery doesn't mean it's a new spec car, it's just a name change to fit in the new FIA class system.

    No. There is a new spec car with different aero scoop and the Skoda logo replaced by lettering. That's the car that is gonna appear in Dirt 5.https://fabiarally2.cz/parametry/en/

    there is no new (3rd model) spec car, it is the Evo model that is already in the game. 

    the original Fabia R5 debuted in 2015 and the Evo model debuted last year (2019).

    the most visible difference between both cars are the headlights (Evo has flat bottom), both sides of the front bumper are a bit different and the front grille (height), the roof scoop u talk about is the same on both versions of the car (original & Evo), see picture below:


    the version of the Evo in DR2 indeed has a different roof scoop, but that will probably be because they licensed a test version of the Evo, see picture below:


    Does this clear up your question? 🙂

  4. So the 1999 Toyota Corolla WRC has been announced a while already as preorder bonus in the deluxe edition.

    Found some gameplay videos of 2 other older WRC cars that apparently will be available in WRC 9


    Citroën Xsara WRC 2005


    Ford Focus WRC 2007

  5. if they could really improve the engine sounds this time, that would be the best thing they could do to get even more people to buy it. 

    I didn't buy it because of that

  6. Rally Sweden is just one big joke this year, they should've just cancelled the whole event instead of letting it go through with like half of the stages and still having to cancel more stages due to the weather.

    Or at least adjust the point scoring system and only go for half the points like in their own FIA rules....

    Only 1 stage tomorrow then....


    Due to changing weather conditions and to protect the road for the rally-closing Wolf Power Stage, Sunday's itinerary has been amended. The first pass through SS17 Likenäs 1 will not take place and competitors will tackle SS18 Likenäs 2 as scheduled. The first competitor will now restart at 10.53 ahead of a 15-minute service in Torsby. SS18 Likenäs 2 (21.19km) will start at 12.18."

    DiRT Rally 2.0:

    • Colin McRae: FLAT OUT pack is the last major piece of content we're releasing.

    Is "major" the keyword here? Does that mean we can still expect some minor content then? 🤔

    Otherwise you could've just written "last piece of content". 😁

  8. There's something from Mobil 1 Rally Championship 2000 that I would like to see again in modern rallygames, in Rally Championship the leaderboards (single stage times & rally times) contained every car class. So when you were driving an A5 car you could see how u competed against the bigger & more powerful A6's & A7's.

    And beating them felt hugely rewarding, obviously with an A5 you weren't going to beat every A7 car but still when you were able to mix in the top 5 and beating others of your own class, that felt really good.

    So imagine in DR3 when driving an Evo X R4 f.e. and beating some of those R5's and being able to see it in those multi class leaderboards, that would be great.

    Conspiracy after the first rally just finished!? Wow... 🤣


    When it comes to Ogier you never know, at M-Sport it was just the same, even at the beginning of the season. All for Ogier, other Ford drivers were only there for backup and not to be ahead of him even if they were faster.

  10. So, team orders already at Toyota? Evans having to slow down to let Ogier pass or just not Evans' day today? What do u guys think, would be a real shame for Evans really to have to let Ogier ahead of him after such a great rally where he was faster than Ogier most of the time.
