    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Pat Doran's rallycross RS200, the very car that got me into rallycross.  <3 Sadly caught fire at Lydden earlier this year, I understand it will be back in action at Loheac. I can't wait!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The worst situation would be if an official and full WRC licence would force Codemasters to make a game the promotor would want. If Codemasters are able to licence great locations from outside of WRC and individually include modern and past WRC as well as lower category cars; and create an authentic and full of content experience then that would be ideal :) Easy right? :P Hypothetically speaking... What if it couldn't have that other stuff too, what if having the WRC licence meant just having WRC and WRC only, no Hillclimb, Rallycross, Dakar, ERC, Rally America, Group B, 90's or any of the other stuff you've mentioned before and that we've had in our previous games.  Would you still want WRC at the cost of all that other stuff? My personal opinion is no, I wouldn't want to sacrifice the other content for the sake of a full WRC license. Considering the rally element of DiRT 3, I really like the mixture of content  and I am hoping for more variety of rally cars/rally content in the next CM rally game, not less.  I'm also "quite keen" on rallycross, so I really want to see that well represented in the next DiRT.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Fully agreed with this. Like @doyley101‌ I find it more satisfying to race against real names on real stages/tracks (in "proper" rally cars). Having said that, when in concerns the rallying content I can think of several licensed Championships/events I'd be happy with in place of a full WRC license.  Specific events from the WRC calendar (such as Monte Carlo, Finland and Wales) are a bigger priority (to me) then having the overall World Rally Championship. I mentioned it in the wish list ages ago, but instead of the full-WRC license I'd love to see CM produce a rally "best of" with the best events from many rally Championships all rolled into one game.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Yeah, absolutely @gfRally‌.I daresay the majority of the regular posters here in the DiRT section all think along the same lines concerning what is and isn't feasible when it comes to a new game. I actually think @justbiglee‌ has a pretty tough job. Can't be easy to continually dream up new ways of winding us all up on Twitter! :smiley:  I agree with @VirtuaIceMan‌ concerning the implementation of DLC in DiRT 3: it was a bit cruel to wave what you could have in peoples faces!

    Motorsport Stuff thread

    Only just spotted this thread.  So glad the above changes didn't happen as I can't imagine the alternate layout being anywhere near as good. The proposed circuit area on the right of this drawing is relatively flat, so it would be nowhere near as interesting as the current GP circuit!

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    Such a great video! (And yes Mads does rock: he has driven many Imprezas! :D).  I have just one request to add to the thread - and it is something that has been requested before - but I was reminded when I switched on DiRT 3 last night for the first time in a few months.  I was feeling the urge to break out a Group A rally car and so I browsed through the 90's class. Admiring the fine period liveries on the Celica and Escort before getting to my fave car in the class, I felt a pang of disappointment as I remembered that it didn't look like this... ...make it happen CM, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease! :D

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I've said it in other threads, but I personally think its possible to make a good rally game without the WRC license. For me, the inclusion of World Rally Cars is vital though: the absence of so many modern classics was the biggest failing of DiRT 3 (in my opinion ;) ).

    Cheers Pete: the Toyota shot is my fave of the set.  Some more pictures (and words) here...  http://fueltopia.co.uk/profiles/blog/event-24-hours-of-le-mans-2014-circuit-de-la-sarthe ...if any of you are bored!

    Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014

    All my pictures are here:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/22961613@N06/ The Loeb shot is all I've uploaded from Goodwood so far though: I only took about 10 pictures over the course of the whole day!

    Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014

    Cheers Luke! I was having a lazy day with the camera, quite glad the moment I decided to take it out of my bag was just before Loeb came flying by!

    Forgive the double post, but one shot from the weekend: Loeb on the attack on the Forest Rally Stage.

    Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014

    I was there! Only did the one day (Saturday) this year, but got there very early and left just before 8. Would preferred to have done two days, but the ticket price ruled that out.  A lot of car shows get very repetitive, but this was my eighth Festival of Speed and I have every intention of being there again next year! There are so many cool cars to look at, plenty of surprises and the rally stage (which is the best bit of the Festival in my opinion). PS: Cracking video Luke!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    What if we stole the coffee and donuts? Then they'd have no respite from the pressure, and we'd have coffee and donuts! Sounds like a win-win to me! It's ruthless, but it seems a certain way to get some answers. I'm in if we steal some tea as well: I'm not a coffee drinker and I refuse to break-and-enter for a beverage I don't like.

    Le Mans 24 Hours 2014

    Finally had some time to make a start on my photos:  Hopefully have some more up soon!

    Where's the reviews???

    Well the sparse endurance content is a little disappointing, but the rest of the game looks to make up for that, especially as a lot of the reviews seem to indicate the Touring Car content is significant. Definitely a game I'll be picking up! (And hopefully Codemasters can address the absence of Le Mans via DLC :D)

    Dirt 3 handling..

    I actually thought the handling in DiRT 3 was the best of the DiRT games! A world away from the atrocious handling in DiRT*... (*  no offence Codemasters: I just thought DiRT 2 and 3 highlighted how bad the D1 handling was!)

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    YES PLEASE! The S12B is one of the cars I'm really hoping has made the cut!

    Awesome job! Though with the title of the thread I was afraid I was going to see a photo of something I really didn't want to see when I opened the thread up!

    FIA World Rallycross - Hell

    Round 4 is Kouvola (Finland), Holjes is Round 5. :) I have lost count of the number of times I've researched a trip to Holjes. It is reckoned to be the European rallycross event to go to. Getting there is a proper mission though!  To be honest I fancy a trip to all the Scandinavian rounds; the track at Kouvola looks fantastic as well.

    Le Mans 24 Hours 2014

    Got back late last night. Absolutely superb weekend and a very eventful race. Managed to keep up with most of the twist and turns of the race as we had Sky TV in the camp! I was hoping to see a different marque crowned as the winner, but you can't fault Audi for their consistency and meticulous planning. Given the drama surrounding this years victory I wonder if the 2014 Le Mans will become "Truth in 24 III"?
