    FIA World Rallycross - Hell

    One of several European rallycross tracks I would like to visit!  I was at Le Mans at the weekend so I will be checking out the coverage this evening. I have already seen the results though and I'm glad to see that Block delivered a performance to silence the critics, also pleased to see Solberg finishing high as well. OMSE are certainly shaping up as the team to beat this year.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The subtle hint dropping is infuriating: just give us something concrete! :D
  3. Cheers Lee: quite pleased with how some of them came out! 
  4. Forgive the double post, but uploaded a set of pictures if anyone is interested!  https://www.flickr.com/photos/22961613@N06/

    Red Bull Global Rallycross Round 1

    Not managed to see any coverage of the race yet, just a few Facebook posts from drivers. Shocking lack of news again, the GRC hasn't even come close to the World Rallycross for PR this year (in my opinion anyway).

    Le Mans 24 Hours 2014

    Yeah, if I recall correctly there was a Porsche "Mission 2014" billboard directly opposite the Audi garage last year! I personally like the banter: at least the WEC hasn't got a stick up its ass in the way "other" top level motorsports do...
  7. Yeah, that engine sounds too high pitched to be a V8. Compare the video to this: http://youtu.be/KEGUwvBG3rQ

    GRID Autosport - The Track List

    Shame that the Circuit de la Sarthe didn't make it to the game, but look forward to racing round Brands and Mount Panorama.

    Le Mans 24 Hours 2014

    Just noticed that the 2014 Le Mans spotter guide is now available:  http://www.spotterguides.com/portfolio/2014-le-mans/ An essential print out for anyone going to the track!  Has anyone else seen the new Audi R18 clip as well?... http://youtu.be/_3u_14CXSDg ...very sly dig at Porsche there: might end up eating those words next weekend!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Well my interest in E3 next week just increased significantly: fingers crossed for some news now!

    GRID Autosport confirmed cars/tracks/features

    Yeah, I was hoping for Le Mans prototypes as well. Still, better one than none!

    Le Mans 24 Hours 2014

    I'll be there. Got there very late on Friday last year, so didn't have a lot of time to prepare before the race. Arriving on Thursday morning this year, so should have a bit more time to soak in the atmosphere (and some French beer!) before the race starts. Managed to stay awake for 21 of 24 hours last year, will try and do the whole race this time! :)

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    World famous rally driver, you'll never guess which though. I'm going to say Solberg, just because! :D

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Not DiRTy gossip as such, but I made a start on my Lydden pictures this evening so I thought I'd chuck a couple of my faves up: I'm really crossing my fingers that Lydden is in the next DiRT: it would be brilliant to blast round it in game!
  15. SUCH a great weekend. Some excellent racing in all the classes, rounded off with some superb finals. Gutted Solberg didn't win, but Bakkerud has been quick all weekend and was a deserving winner. Impressive driving from Foust and Larsson, brilliant result for Jordan. So good to see him back in rallycross again, I hope not for the last time!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    KickUp said: tbtstt said: That was pretty damn cryptic! :D Love Ryan's car, drooled over it several times at the Festival of Speed.   Is anyone from Codemasters going to be at the World Rallycross this weekend? Half a day of work to go... I am already far too excited! Not sure if anyone else is going. I can't make it this year. :( Shame, its shaping up to be a hell of a weekend.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    gfRally said: Maybe I am out in left field here, but isn't Liam Doran been mentioned before? As RallyDriven said I believe Liam Doran was involved with DiRT 3 (his name is certainly in the game). That leg in the video doesn't look like Liam either! Elfyn Evans is a good guess. Are we getting warm yet @JonTucker and @KickUp, or are we miles off?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    MastaVonBlasta said: Another explanation is that Andrew Jordan owns more than one pair of shoes. I own more than one pair of shoes and I'm not a BTCC Champion, so I would think he owns more than one pair! :D Perhaps David Binks again?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    My first thought is Andrew Jordan @MastaVonBlasta. Will head over to Twitter now and read what has been said!

    What does Colin McRae Rally / DiRT mean to you?

    Great read Lee! Its nice to see older gamers (I mean that respectfully! ;)) who remember the roots of the series at the helm. For me CMR really came at the perfect time to get me hooked. McRae's WRC title in '95 had shifted rally from a casual interest to my fave sport, McRae himself was just spectacular and Subaru's were the coolest thing ever. My introduction came to CMR after I bought a Playstation magazine driving special which came with a demo disc (ah, the good old days of cover-mounted demo discs!). After being rather disappointed with V Rally I tried the CMR demo, loved it and decided it was worth the sizeable investment (£30 was a lot when I was 16!) to get the full game. I've subsequently purchased and completed every CMR and DiRT title (with the exception of Showdown, which I don't class as part of the series). Although I have enjoyed other driving games along the way, the CMR/DiRT games are one of the few driving series that I have stuck with from day 1.

    Which is the best rally game ever made?

    CMR 2.0 for me as well (with CMR 2005 in a very close second!).

    Red Bull Global Rallycross Round 1

    Perhaps I've been spoilt with the level of PR we have seen for RallycrossRX/World Rallycross, but I thought the GRC did a very poor job with communication for round one.  All the heat times/positions I picked up were from drivers individual Facebook pages rather then the main GRC page, plus the live timing seems very erratic. I thought the support of Red Bull would improve the speed they fed results back, not slow it down!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Also just seen on Facebook that Pat Doran's rallycross RS200 (Rosie) is almost complete ready for next weekend: Heard some interesting numbers with regards to Group B cars in attendance: fingers crossed they all make it to the circuit!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    38 Supercars now (and I've heard a rumour that there may still be more to come) I shall be there for the whole weekend: if I spot someone in Codemasters gear I shall accost them and demand information!
