  1. Good find @couger1981! I'm waiting for the annoucement for the new game so I can start another confirmed car list!
  2. Great photos Avenga76! Nice selection of cars as well; the '75 Avenger is easily my fave!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!  
  6. 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.
  7. They don't show it there? No, we don't get NBC in the UK!
  8. The Lotus 49 is definately my fave of that lot: very cool!
  9. 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.
  10. 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. ;)
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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. Thinki
  16. YES! Please, please, pretty please Codemasters: no Christian Stevenson!
  17. 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!
  18. Great to see so many familiar names back already!
  19. Glad you did because this is the first time I've seen it: very cool!
  20. 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! :) 
  21. 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 tra
  22. @tbtstt :-O I thought u would go for the Scooby! But this is an amazing choice! I am also a great Petter Solberg fan! ( And Petter and his son Oliver are great Codemasters fans (D3)) Looking forward to follow him in the World Rallycross series this year! :D    Haha! Syngamer had already posted an SWRT car, so I thought I would go for that instead! I'm hoping to go to at least two World Rallycross rounds this year, can't wait to see Solberg in action again!
  23. Perhaps an acquired taste (and I'm biased because I'm a huge Solberg fan), but I'm a huge fan of the look of Petter Solberg's 2013 rallycross DS3: Would love to see it in the next CM game so I can attempt some Solberg-style corner entry!
  24. I definately agree with this. A playground where all the cars can be used would be brilliant; a nice big open space (and perhaps some tighter spaces) to play with cars and tweak car settings. As for my wishes for the new game, a focus on rally and rallycross is my main hope. I would like to see European style rallycross properly represented, with real tracks and the correct race format. Rallycross race weekends implemented like the F1 games (i.e. where you do qualifying, heats and finals) would be my dream scenario, but I'll be happy with real tracks! As for the rallying
