  1. A staple in modern rallycross: rallycross first ran in 1967, the joker lap was added to the sport less than a decade ago. 
  2. Aren't joker laps longer than the normal lap, sort of a longcut? They are cool though Yes, they are always longer in European and World Rallycross. They are suppose to add at least 2 seconds to the lap time.  Some of the Global Rallycross "tracks" (I use the term loosely) have the Joker as a shortcut.  I would like to see them in the next game, but would like to have the option to race the old fashion way without joker laps! 
  3. Yeah, what could have been for Subaru (and the WRC)... :(
  4. OFF TOPIC: I love this photo, it was taken on the Sunday of the Festival of Speed in 2007. Chris Atkinson drove the car on the Sunday, but Colin McRae had driven the same car on the Saturday.  Quite late on the Saturday my girlfriend and I were stood behind the fence on the outside of this corner and, although there was a bit of spray from the other cars on the stage, nothing was getting near us.  Colin then came round the corner, way faster than anyone else, riding the bank on the outside of the corner and spraying mud, rocks and various bits of greenery all over the place. Needles
  5. I have to be honest and say I'm finding the prolonged teasing a bit irritating now. I'm hoping the mention in mainstream media means we might actually see something solid soon. 
  6. Cheers!  :) Few more here if you are interested: https://www.flickr.com/photos/22961613@N06/sets/72157646190255149/
  7. Ah, I thought it was Turkington, he did seem to come into that corner with quite a lot of speed!  Bit late, but a few photos from Snetterton: I'm still on the fence on the Civic Tourer. Its no Volvo 850, is it? 
  8. Oooooh, good topic @justbiglee‌! But putting top 5 rally and rallycross car in one list?  I can't do it, the choice is too difficult! so I'm going to be greedy and do a top 5 rally car and top 5 rallycross car list... just because.  :D Top 5 Rally Cars:(Roughly in order!) 1. 1997 Impreza S4 WRC (preferably in Colin McRae's livery and tarmac spec). 2. Audi quattro S1 (preferably in Walter Rohrl or Stig Blomqvist's livery). 3. 1995 Subaru Impreza Group A (preferably in Colin McRae's livery and tarmac spec). 4. 2005 Subaru Impreza S
  9. From the comments I've read online the cancellation of next years Championship seems to have divided a lot of British rally fans. I personally think there is sound logic behind the decision, but others do not agree with me! I would certainly like to see some British rallies included, but I still believe that a "perfect" rally Championship would consist of elements of many Championships rather than just one... In other (not entirely related) news there is a British Rallycross Championship round coming up at Lydden Hill in a couple of weeks. As it is a fortnight before the World Rallycross roun
  10. Minor spot, I believe that's a British Rally onboard DVD, not Irish: http://www.dukevideo.com/prd4960/British-Rally-On-Board-Experience-DVD?gclid=CJSG-sq1ksACFaYIwwodDWkAMg Codemasters watching onboard footage of WRCars circa 2003 - 2005 sounds good to me...
  11. VW really haven't messed around with their rally program, they have involved so many experienced drivers in the development of the Polo. I hope that someone at VW can tempt Gronholm back into a rallycross car as well.
  12. I shall be at Loheac, so I will be sure to have a look at Binks car for any incriminating stickers! As @lumpiestfish115‌ has said the EKS cars run with Need For Speed decals. I'm sure Blocks car had some small NFS stickers on in Finland, so that's three cars Binks has got to beat in France!  I have got my fingers crossed that Codemasters are building up to include licensed World Rallycross content in the next game. To have all the Championship cars, drivers and teams included would be dream game material for me! Slightly off topic, but fantastic win for Solberg in Canada yesterday. Was
  13. I actually thought Plato jumped the light in the first race. Great weekend for Plato but a pretty crap one for Jordan. Still four races to go, but I hope this weekend doesn't put an end to his title hopes.  I will have to watch the highlights as I'd like to see the incident with Neal in Race 3 again: that seemed to start a long way back from the corner and I wasn't sure if he turned in on the BMW or was punted out. 
  14. I shall be setting off for Snetterton at stupid-o-clock tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed Jordan will be back in action.
  15. Ha! You seem to have made some new friends over there already! You aren't allowed to moan about being bored waiting for DiRT though: you've already seen more than most of us! ;)
  16. Slightly off topic, but on the subject of sound has anyone played Gran Turismo 6? Picked it up a few weeks ago and Polyphony need a slap for some of the audio: the S1E2 quattro sounds awful!
  17. Haha! First thing I think of when I see the word Delta is Lancia... but god knows what it means in the context of that tweet.  I'm sure @justbiglee‌ will be along in a minute to tell us absolutely nothing. :smiley: 
  18. I have yet to play Autosport, but I have to agree with this statement.  DiRT 3 is the only racing game I have played heavily online and, when racing with friends/sensible players, online racing is absolutely fantastic... conversely racing in open rooms is one of the most un-enjoyable, frustrating, gaming experiences I've ever had. Idiots who don't understand clean racing, abusive messages, dirty moves... absolutely maddening!
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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!
  23. Lets hope someone is spell checking DiRT 4 for Paul! :D
  24. tbtstt


    Keep it up @gfRally, see how he like it! :D
  25. 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!
