    So first round of 2021 in the history books, what did we all think? (Assuming anyone else here watched it! 😄)

    For the most part I thought the coverage was pretty decent. Solid camera work and presentation (aside from the absence of tyre allocation graphics, hope they bring that back), weakest points had to be the feed dropping out for the first World semi and some inconsistencies from the commentary team(s). I hope that becomes less of an issue as the new (to rallycross) commentators learn the sport and drivers.

    I didn't get to watch all of the Friday races, but didn't see Neil Cole in any of the coverage I watched so that was an added bonus.

    Disappointed for Johan. That win should have been his and, although the rules were clearly broken, shame to see him put on the back foot through no fault of his own... that aside he looks to have some good speed in the Audi already. Gutted for Gronholm as well, was looking forward to seeing him in the final, definitely not the start to the Championship he wanted. Good showing from Abbring, despite (predictiably) a plethora of car issues.

    Not to sure on the noise, but actually some good action from RX2e.

    I quite agree 100% of what you've just said @tbtstt

    Neil will start his season with the Loheac event, and then the rest of the season.

    Even if I am not fan of Johan, I reckon he is one of the most greatest driver I have ever seen. His ability to adapt the car is such impressing. I feel sorry for him not to have see him winning it and really bored about the classic Hansen's overreacting moment. 

    But this adds some real good expectations for the rest of the season. I already look forward seeing Holjes. 🙂

    Quite happy overall by this new kind of coverage. The onboard section is awesome. The camera angles are so awesome.

    I carry on thinking that it would have fit 100% for Andrew Coley and Dan Rooke. But, we can't have what we always dream of.

    I bet what happens though is that a 16:9 image gets stretched, whereas Kojima Productions may be developing a bespoke option for Death Stranding.

    Yeh, that's what I am thinking. It gets stretched, so it is ugly in some ways. But if Sony adds a Ultrawide update to its system, do you think DR2 would need a bespoke update too, or would it work alone ? 🧐

    I have seen that news : https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/death-stranding-could-be-the-first-ps5-game-with-ultra-wide-support/

    I am wondering how a such feature could be implemented in PS5 and would it make old games compatible with Ultrawide (like Dirt Rally 2 for instance) ? 

    I still have a little dream to have an ultra wide screen in my gaming rig for PS5.

    I am a huge noob with that kind of technology, so please, be kind with me 😄

    Your thoughts on that ?

    I mean, to me, it sounds good if it lets me to have access to inside videos, interview, special contents, more live coverage, a bit like what we had during the magic weekend in 2020 with Andrew & Molly.

    The WRC app is cool. I woud love to have a WRX one.

    I don't care about paying for this if, and only if, the content is here.

    The absence of Andrew is still a pain for me. I am pretty sure that it is a cool format for him.

    Can't say anything about any potential future titles until I'm allowed to, can't even give a date or confirm if anything does or does not exist 😄 


    When I can though, I'll do my bit to get you all as hyped up as possible 😉

    I had an idea and just rolled with it.

    It's not perfect but the idea behind it was something I just couldn't resist.

    The EXR Rally VW Polo GTI R5 promotional video:


    These replay angles are just insane. Reminds me the very good replay from RBR pro.

    For 2021 I'm looking to do something a little different, in that I'll only be managing the Official DiRT Club and want to bring in some aspects of Expert.

    It doesn't make sense to set up everything twice when (based on how many joined in 2020) only one Club is truly active/popular.


    So with that in mind I am thinking of fewer Service areas, with gaps potentially long enough for Medium tyres to be viable.

    Also might consider Hardcore Damage but will make the Service Areas longer to compensate.


    It'll still be a single Championship for all of 2021 though, but based on a number of factors it makes sense to have it be only R5s.


    that sounds really good to me.
