    We should call this "The Wales effect" ! This rally is really tricky.

    I knew I shouldn't have started the rally so late, but I thought I was awake enough to at least finish a stage or two before I threw my car at the scenery! :classic_laugh:

  2. Well at least you got further into the event than I did @JorritVD: less than 10 corners into the first stage and I badly overestimated my corner speed and threw my Fiesta straight off the side of a hill. I probably could have carried on, but I was so annoyed that I rage quit! :classic_laugh:

    Since GRX Taneco pilots took 4th an 5th place in 2019 World RX Driver Standings.

    I think it is a fair argument to say one of their cars should have won the Championship last year. I blame Niclas appendix.

    It dont have to be in N class, if we speak about the S12b, there is ton of video footage Colin Drove testing for Prodrive.. so there would be no problem to be in 2000ccm class.

    as it could be licenced as SUBARU Impreza 2007 Rally.

    I would personally prefer not to see that gold (or the black) "No Fear" livery on an S12b, as that Open Class car isn't close to WRCar specification.

    That picture you have linked is from McRae on his last public appearance before his death: he drove the S12b on the Saturday and his own McRae R4 on the Sunday. As has been discussed before, I'd love to the S12b in a DiRT Rally game: still can't understand why they went for the S14 instead of the S12b!

    I wonder where the last one would fit...should we do a Rally America open class ?

    A Rally America Open Class would be cool, though the vast majority of cars in it would be SRT USA cars! As I recall it that Impreza was basically a Group N car with a few extra bits nailed to it, so it could fit within a Group N class.

    I feel like we're being teased on the Hyundai for sure, but i also feel that it's fairly unlikely - RX at best, but still unlikely.  

    Remember that there isn't any (?) official Hyundai backing of the RX car, at least i don't think that backing is there, so he's just speaking of the looks of the game, tagging the only game, and the official one, but posting his own car, advertising?

    The chassis (and I believe some of the drivetrain components) used for the GRX i20 came from Hyundai Motorsport, but that is where the official connection ends. I did originally wonder if the absence of the GRX i20 was due to a similar issue to the EKS S1 in DiRT 4.

    I agree that it could just be advertising, but the Tweet Instagram post is oddly specific.

    Not sure if PSRX had a "special version" since they were factory-backed

    PSRXVW Polos had a few significant differences when compared to the other Polo Supercars out there: most obvious one being the cooling package all being located up front. 

    The Svardal Polo is the ex-Marklund car that Rustad tried to drive through the barriers at Silverstone.

    The tease from Grönholm RX as well as Pj's reaction pretty much confirms the RX version at least imo. 

    Are we jumping to conclusions here, or could this be happening?

    Happy Season 5 GIF by Friends

    I agree. Though I prefer my gifs to be pure Aniston @PJTierney. You don't seem to be shooting down the idea of the i20 coming, is this a sign?...

    What if the Hyundai deal with the WRC8 devs was a timed exclusive and it's now green light to add both the R5 and RX Hyundai? :classic_blink:

    Timed exclusive is surely the most likely option, isn't it? 

    Seems hard to believe it might come this late in the lifespan of the game but, in true Gossip thread fashion, I want to believe!
