  1. 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!
  2. 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!

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.

  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. My first thought is Andrew Jordan @MastaVonBlasta. Will head over to Twitter now and read what has been said!
  8. 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 tr
  9. CMR 2.0 for me as well (with CMR 2005 in a very close second!).
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. A livery creator would be superb but, failing that, I just hope they get as many real liveries in game as possible (and that all the "fake" liveries are kept sensible).
  14. On the assumption that the Cat B cars are basically DTM I've voted there... however Cat C comes a VERY close second and the classic Touring Cars a very close third!
  15. Just read the blog and the above car list. My anticipation for Autosport just jumped up several notches; virtually all the Touring Car bases I was hoping for covered by that list. Fingers crossed for Super GT and the Circuit de la Sarthe appearing in the endurance class now...
  16. Thats a shame @RallyDriven. There will be more rallycross though, but only one shot at your exams! ;)
  17. Following on from the MastaVonBlasta thread on Round 1, here is a fresh one for Round 2 of the World Rallycross Championship, this time coming from Lydden Hill in the UK. The provisional entry list went up earlier today, and it looks superb: http://media.rallycrossrx.com/docs/Entry%20List_Rd2%20WorldRX_Lydden%20Hill_GBR.pdf 37 Supercars, 10 Touring Cars and 23 Super 1600's. Some big names in the Supercar class, so its going to be interesting to see who makes it to the final.  I will be there for both days and I CANNOT WAIT! :D I've also heard word that there might be a num
  18. Haha! I just noticed the little note in the top right corner. You sods Codemasters! :D   EDIT: Zoom in on the top right: Above the McRae poster: "lol we shopped it out. nice try though"    
  19. Looks like DiRT 1? (Though I see a CMR04 box on the desk)(and what looks like a model of McRae's Legacy at the end of the desk!)
  20. Good spot: definately looks like turns 1 and 2 of the Hell track! Got my fingers crossed this is a hint of whats to come. Is Hell the track with the big blind jump on it? If so, that would be one cool track to race on. Höljesbanan has a couple of blind crest/jumps at corners :) Holjes is such a cool track to watch. I desperately want to get there for a round of the World Championship!
  21. Good spot: definately looks like turns 1 and 2 of the Hell track! Got my fingers crossed this is a hint of whats to come. Is Hell the track with the big blind jump on it? If so, that would be one cool track to race on. I think Kouvola (Finland) might be where you are thinking of; big jump which leads immediately into a hairpin right. http://youtu.be/EZnMZO8okUY The jump/corner is shown briefly at 0:20 (sorry, haven't got enough to time to find a better clip right now!)

  23. Ha, no worries @MastaVonBlasta! I am always trying to increase my knowledge on rallycross, so I always like reading peoples observations on the cars or drivers: chances are someone else will know something I don't or have spotted something I haven't seen! :) The Pipo engine is a possibility. Having said that the Ford's are running well developed Mountune engines, so they are not exactly slow! The way he pulled them in could be due to gearing or even the mapping of the engine rather than the way the engine is built; even though the turbo inlet size is restrict
  24. Derek Tohill, from what I remember, is driving Liam's last year's car and his wing resembles WRC car designs:  The wing on Petter's car seems to have undergone quite a bit of development: In this gallery the differences between rear wings can be clearly noticed and Petter's team have more longitudinal winglets whem compared with their competition. From what I know from following some F1 tech guys, having such strakes may decrease overall downforce when going straight but they make the wing produce more consistent downforce when the car is in yaw, going sideways as Petter does
  25. PS3 controller, manual transmission. Have never actually played a DiRT game with a wheel... :\">
