  1. They still make awesome cars @ThierryNeuville, just not World Rally Cars! ;) Have to say I'm rather tempted by the 2015 STI... Back on topic, one of my fave circuit race cars and liveries of all times:

    What do you drive?

    During the day I drive a 2007 Skoda Fabia 1.9 TDi (pretty boring, so I won't bother posting a picture of that!). At the weekends I drive a 2005 Impreza STi Type UK PPP:

    Good find @couger1981! I'm waiting for the annoucement for the new game so I can start another confirmed car list!

    Great photos Avenga76! Nice selection of cars as well; the '75 Avenger is easily my fave!

    Rally America 2014 Schedule

    They don't show it there? No, we don't get NBC in the UK! Oh man! I'm sorry. Its really cool to watch racing on there. Hope you guys get something soon. :(( I've managed to follow the previous Rally America Championships via Facebook and You Tube, so I'm sure I can do the same again this year. Should be a new season of the Subaru Launch Control web series as well, really looking forward to more of that!

    I don't believe that is entirely correct: DiRT 2 came out two years after McRae died and that had Colin's name on it.

  9. I really hope at least one of Higgins liveries is in the next DiRT game!   pupazzo said: Favourite classic car: Audi Sport quattro S1 E2  This picture is just full of win: love it!

    I personally would agree with this; if the rally stages were based around proper rallies but the stages themselves were fictional that personally wouldn't bother me.   The rallycross tracks are the only thing I'm really bothered about being fiction free.

    WRC 2014 Round 4 - Rally de Portugal

    Lets hear your top 5 then Sorry, just saw your reply to me there: bit late for predictions now! Another win for Ogier. 13 wins from 17 starts for the Polo R now, they really are the team to beat at the moment. Once again I have to reiterate how gutted I am we never saw Loeb and Ogier go head-to-head for a full season! Good result for Ostberg, not such a great weekend for Meeke or Evans.

    Colin McRae DiRT

    Pretty much as CarBoyCam says, I really enjoyed DiRT up until the point when I played DiRT 2 and realised just how off the handling was. DiRT has some of my fave stages and definately my fave rallycross circuits from the DIRT series, but the handling model is the main reason I rarely go back to it anymore. Still, loved it at the time and would like to see some of the content from the game in a future title. ;)

    Rally America 2014 Schedule

    The TV coverage is great news for the Championship. Its not a massive Championship, but I have really enjoyed following it the last few year, hopefully I'll find a way to pick up the coverage here in the UK!

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    As much as I didn't like the Gymkhana in the DiRT 3 career mode (it felt forced) I have to confess that I rather enjoyed playing Outbreak online: charging round dodging other cars was actually a pretty good way of getting to grips with the gymkhana cars!

    F1's V6 Engine Sound

    I'm in agreement with @flsince08. The noise itself isn't too bad (it actually reminds me of a bike engine), but they are far, far, too quiet. I've seen a couple of news reports from the F1 pit lane with cars running behind the commentator: with the old cars you wouldn't have been able to hear a word they were saying, with the new cars they were still perfectly clear!

    I ordered a copy from the US and wasn't disappointed, I have watched it a number of times now! Definately amongst the best motorsport documentaries I've seen in the last few years.

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    I don't know about the latest crop of World Rally Cars (the 1.6L cars), but the 2.0L cars definately had launch control. I read an article about the launch control on the last of the Impreza WRCars quite recently, which was describing how sophisticated the system was. Not only does it regulate the initial launch of the car, but it automatically upshifts from 1st to 2nd so the driver can concentrate on keeping the car in a straight line! Rallycross supercars use launch control as well. If you watch onboard cameras before the start you will often see the drivers tweaking the launch revs. Thinking about it that would be quite a cool little feature to include in a game... ;) The WRCars in DiRT 3 (the "Pro" class cars) actually have launch control, but you can't use it at the start line. If you come to a stop in the stage though, then hold the brake and accelerator down at the same time, the revs will be held. Release the brake for quick launch!

    The last game you completed?

    Arkham Asylum was the last game I finished: seemed a good use of the Christmas break from work! :D A whole list of other games I want to pick up and play through, just don't seem to get enough time for gaming these days!

    Glad you did because this is the first time I've seen it: very cool!

    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    I remember the little tests in CMR 2005 and they definately would be a fun inclusion: but only for money/XP/content rewards. I personally would rather the cars come in one specification only, earning upgrades for them is a bit arcadey for my liking. Just my opinion though! :)

    Idea WRC Ultimate rallyteam explained

    How much do you want me to write? Haha! I'll try to keep it brief... Championship: I would like to see the rallycross reflect a real life Championship(s). A full World/European Rallycross Championship would be perfect, or a National Championship (such as the British or Belgium Rallycross Championship). The Global Rallycross Championship would be a nice addition, but I would rather the focus of the rallycross be a "proper" rallycross Championship rather than the GRC. Tracks/Racing: Probably my biggest wish for the rallycross is the use of real rallycross tracks only. DiRT 1 had them and I would like to see proper rallycross circuits again, preferably with "joker" lap options. I would like to see the racing reflect a proper rallycross weekend as closely as possible: so you have to do practise, qualifying, heats and finals, with the event presented in a similar fashion to the F1 games (and for those people who don't want to do the full weekend CM could include a "short weekend" option as they have in the F1 games.) Cars/Drivers: I would like to see as many real-world rallycross cars, liveries and drivers included as possible, with the minimum fictional liveries. Some of the rallycross car stats seemed a bit skewed in DiRT 3, so having the game cars reflect thier real world counterparts as closely as possible would be great.
