  1. Forgive the double post, but a few pictures from the opening round of the British Rallycross Championship... Few more here if anyone is interested in seeing more.
  2. Not WorldRX, but the Supercar final from the first round of the British Rallycross Championship at Lydden on Monday: Great race, definitely one of the best Supercar finals I have watched at Lydden recently.
  3. I am reluctant to let you get excited, as I don't want to see you disappointed again when the next patch comes out!
  4. Ha: I read that and was going to post on behalf of all the optimists... ...but you have already done it! 😄
  5. Possible tie in WRC back on the cards then? Just seen this article being shared on Facebook: https://dirtfish.com/rallycross/world-rx/why-gcks-world-rx-driver-shuffle-shouldnt-be-a-mystery/ Some interesting snippets to take from this, specifically the statement from Baciuška: "We have agreed with our sponsors that we couldn’t waste our sponsors’ budget unnecessarily as we can’t see us getting on the podium with this car, so we’ll make a decision about our further plans after this weekend. “There will be a lot of changes made compared to when I drove in Sweden. The s
  6. Looking at the results for the weekend, that doesn't seem to have worked out as they planned... ...I'd be mortified if I was a FORS mechanic. The failure rate of the cars is appalling. Despite all the claims the Clios look no better and the Meganes are going backwards. Real shame to see Ekstrom and Larsson drop out on Saturday, but some good racing in the rain today and a fantastic drive from Niclas in the final.
  7. Yeah. Kevin Abbring and Philippe Maloigne were originally announced to contest the Euros in a Clio, that plan was later revised to a Euro campaign for Maloigne and select World appearances for Abbring. Philippe wasn't on the entry for Holjes, so I wonder if the plan has changed and/or budget has fallen through. The Marklund car is the only one of the Meganes that has looked consistently competitive in the last year and the less said about the Clios the better. Raymond and De Ridder had a wasted season last year (in my opinion), so maybe it is better for Maloigne and Abbring if they end u
  8. Definitely agree. As much as I want them to have a poor year, I was surprised at just how out of the mix the Hansen brothers were. I hope GRX have a better weekend in Finland. Finland also could be interesting as I think less than half the field have driven there before. I don't have much confidence in GFORS and this weekend reinforced that belief. Despite all the claims of improvements over the (extended) off season the Clios still look well off the pace: though at least they didn't break as much as the Megane...
  9. Forgive the double post, but I have just seen EKS confirm that Ekstrom will be at Kouvola this weekend.
  10. I thought it is interesting to see how good Szabo was in the i20. Szabo had hugely impressed me when he made his Supercar debut in an older specification Audi (at Loheac), but I thought he was disappointing in the later specification car last year. I think that later specification car requires a very specific driving style and neither he nor Liam Doran mastered it. I wasn't able to watch the qualifiers during the day, but caught up on all the broadcasts in the evenings. Good to see all the classes getting such comprehensive coverage. Shame that they couldn't get a couple more elect
  11. 100% agree: I don't think TV will ever be able to convey how violent the cars are (especially on launch).
  12. Good first round. Terrible start for RX Cartel, but an impressive run from Johan and a very mature drive from Larsson. If he carries on like that I think he has real title potential. Team Hansen and GRX cars not looking as competitive as I expected. I hope Gronholm has a better day today. Projekt E laps times weren't that far off in practice (about a second and a half slower), but all three drivers seemed to be having trouble being consistent. It must be a very different driving experience. Yeah, strange without spectators. Was odd watching the RallyX Nordic rounds without cr
  13. I actually guessed the American aircraft, it was just the Brit one I thought was unclear! There are quite a few Mustangs in the UK (only a handful flying), but there is always at least one at any airshow I have ever been too. The Corsair is rare here, only one flying. I have been to Duxford a couple of times to see it. Incidentally, if you love aircraft and ever find yourself in the UK then a trip to Duxford is a must. The museum hangars are good, but it is worth the trip just to look round the restoration hangar.
  14. I have seen that before: very cool!
  15. Just Googled military Lego. Now I want to buy this.
  16. I thought the Corsair was the most identifiable of the three: blue and inverted gull wings instantly means Corsair in my mind! I can see the Mustang, but the Spitfire isn't that distinct looking (to me anyway).
  17. I think so: given the wing profile I'd say it is the most distinctive one of the three!
  18. I'd say the last aircraft on the right is a F4U Corsair.
  19. I have been hoping for this since we started getting DLC car classes, but I suspect it is unlikely at this point.
  20. Liveries and other details are cool... ...but this is the bit I am most interested in. Real shame we aren't going to get the GRX i20, but I am really excited about the new Fiesta R5 and there is still one more patch to give us that all blue S4S5...
  21. Jon confirms the correct audio for the new Fiesta R5 in a comment on Facebook:
  22. CM - Codemasters. R5 - R5 20 - 2.0
  23. I hope the CM audio squad have been able to get some time with an R5 Evo 2...
