    They trialled paddles (or buttons) as far back as the 92 manx rally with Colin driving the Legacy. It messed up though and he had to use the manual shifter, theres a Bbc top gear rally report on youtube of the event. He still smashes everyone!

    New rally locations

    Another asphalt round, Ireland or the Manx etc
  3. Apologies if this has been raised before. I’m an admin for a historic only racing club (the latest cars we use are the 2001 focus, Impreza, and 206 and anything before). In November we ran a 5 day RAC rally using the H2 rwd class. Each country represented an area of the UK eg Wales was wales, New England was the North of England and Poland was Scotland and Germany was the ‘Micky mouse’ day 1 stages. 10 stages a day and if you retired on any day you were out of the event completely. The event was a great success and for 2020 we’re thinking of using Group B in a similar format. What we be great would be if we could could pick all homoglated cars from that era. So, obviously Group B 4wd, but also the Group B rwd ( as the Manta 400s are such an iconic part of British rallying) and other cars such as the Ascona 400 which would have still been eligible to complete. in essence it would be great if we could pick and choose the cars we want to run in a championship rather than being confined to one class. This would also work where we hold one day sprints were everyone has to use the same car. Thoughts?

    How do I get faster?

    Left foot braking is key, into and through corners always remember to brake and balance the car by blipping/holding the throttle open where necessary

    Is the WRC license really a loss?

    There was no 206 kit car. There was the 206 super 1600 or the 206 WRC.

    Bought the Focus and Bug eye WRC last night. I love the fact you choose between Burns and Solberg. A real classy touch from codies. 👏

    Is it the MK3 golf or MK4 golf kit car?

    I agree with you 100%. But I understand codies need as wide a car range as possible to appeal to the masses.

    Possibility of Purchasable Skins?

    Malcolm Wilson's blue and yellow Michelin Pilot escort cosworth. 1993 - 1995 in the BRC. Think it was featured in CMR 4 or 5?
  13. A full col de turini looks absolutely insane! I'd also love the full Hafren

    Adding dirtfish rally school doesn't do anything for me but then neither does RX. I would have rather codies 'open up' the sweet lamb bowl, lots of roads around to drive around.

    Wales Rally: Available Now

    I love the low lying fog and the sun through the trees. Really captured the essence of of a Welsh forestry at pretty much any time of year.
