    WRC 9

    Took me a while to get into WRC 8, but once I did I absolutely loved it. I've now got 9 installed but I'm waiting for my new Fanatec handbrake before I launch into it. Can't wait! I see a lot of WRC vs DR type debates, but for me they're perfectly separate. WRC covers the top level FIA aspect, DR games cover the more amateur clubman side of the sport, and for me they both cover their respective bases very well. I also had no idea how many gamers have driven current-gen WRC and R5 cars! They must have done anyway, to be such an authority on their handling...

    Yeah that is annoying. Also annoying that you can't drive a single rally or create your own event, it's single stage or season only. No clubs or leagues option either, but that should be fixed in WRC 9

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Anything else coming in 1.16? And is that going to be the last update, or is it going to go up to a fitting 2.0?

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Car Inaccuracies

    Shouldn't the Group B 4WD cars not be able to use the handbrake other than for launch? I think doing handbrake turns in those cars would have made the diff explode or something...

    WRC 9

    I wrote off WRC 8 when it came out as it just felt and looked alien after playing DR2 for so long. However, a mate convinced me to have another go. After having a good mess around with my wheel settings and the field of view (dash cam works best), I'm now absolutely loving it. The stage design is incredible. The narrow German stages alone are worth putting the time in for. I would urge anyone to go back to it and find the sweet spot, it's really worth it. I can't wait til Codies get their hands on the licence, these stages with Codemasters visuals and diverse car lineup will be unreal. Excited for WRC 9 and the safe knowledge that my rallying addiction is fully covered between DR2 and WRC until the next Dirt Rally comes out.

    Monza Rally Show stages

    This is a huge part of club and national level rallying, I absolutely welcome a bunch of single-venue events with tight stages around bales and tyres etc. Circuits and open areas like Dirtfish would be perfect for short 'spectator stage' style events, super special stages or even some kind of create-your-own-stage type feature.
  12. Yes this is one of the things I had in mind! A great watch on Amazon Prime if anyone's got that.
  13. I've definitely mentioned something like this in a similar thread before, but I would love to see more use of open spaces such as Dirtfish, or even of the RX tracks to make single venue short stage events, or even super-special stages. Single-venue rallying is quite popular in the UK, with one area being used for a whole event and the route being changed using obstacles, cones, bales, pylons etc. Basically a less whacky version of the Time challenges at Dirtfish from Dirt 4, but with pace notes etc. I always found those events to be really fun. Rallycross circuits, along with the paddock area etc could be used to make numerous short stages. Just seems like a good way to bring in more stages and events with less drain on resources.
