    I think it's a well-timed excuse and Citroen are more worried that Meeke is an expensive and inconsistent driver. He (and the C3) seemed to be having a better season, and if Budar really wanted to drop him then it would at least wait for the end of the year. But I guess Budar couldn't wait and the excuse presented itself. I hope someone else gives Meeke another chance. This is good news for Ostberg at least.

    That "like" is for the WRX part, and the espresso part.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Just i dont like a lot the short tracks and official content.. I prefer more variety about enviroments like snow , impressive stadiums , monaco location (Dirt 2 - Dirt 3) ..Offiical ones are a bit boring to me..And also more cars and many classics between them.. So you want a sim, but you want to axe real-life content in favour of spectacular fantasy tracks? Horses for courses, but be aware you're asking for the same mix of realistic/fun as people who want Infected mode in a sim. And anyway, who says there can't be snow in rallycross? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biGdyBxjFTI

    Is this a dig at us poor Overlord fans being completely neglected by Codemasters? :(  It's kind of odd that they own the IP anyway considering they are all about car racing games. They should sell Overlord to a publisher more...suitable I guess.  DiRT 5: Tour de Skira

    Pretty accurate as I recall. "Too much grip!!1!" – Dirt forums, April 27, 2015 to June 5, 2017 "Dirt Rally was perfect!!11" – Dirt forums, June 6, 2017 to present

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Heh, this is all the stuff I'd like to see more of in the next game—all the rally atmosphere and team management experience. What Dirt 4 has is fantastic, so I'd just like the same or more in the future please. :smile: Road deformation would be my number one pie-in-the-sky wish. Not necessarily dynamic (i.e. happening over the course of a stage like Sega Rally Online Arcade), but a slightly different surface each time depending on your start order and the conditions. Antoine L'Estage said he would follow Ken Block on the stage and could see where Block braked because the ruts became darker, so L'Estage would brake after that. Being able to do something like that in a Dirt game, if you're following S. Alvaraz or whoever, would be very cool. Oh and bring back multiple AI on the stage like in Dirt 3 if possible!

    I’d hardly call the non-R2/R5 cars undriveable. The 205 GTI, Evo VI, ‘01 Focus, and R4 Impreza are all favourites of mine in D4, with the default setups. I had to re-learn how to brake, especially with the Group A cars (very gently and in a straight line, then power through the corner), but that was it. I have 80 hours in Dirt 4 so far and 270 hours in Dirt Rally. I don’t care what the Codemasters rally team is working on next, but I’ll be playing it.

    RaceRoom does touring cars. It has multiple seasons of DTM and WTCC (and some classic DTM and Group A), and will have WTCR soon.

    One positive at least is that Loeb isn't stealing points from the drivers who can challenge Ogier for the championship. Well with the pace he has, he could have stolen points from Ogier himself... shame he's out.  True, if Loeb won every rally he was in, it would have pushed Ogier and Neuville closer together in the standings. Win it or bin it, Loeb!

    At least they sorted out the power stage shens: https://www.motorsport.com/wrc/news/new-power-stage-rules-set-for-corsica-1017625/ “WRC stakeholders and Commission members were asked to vote on a simple change which meant any time penalties taken on the final day of an event would make the crew ineligible for any bonus points.”

    No yellow house jump at Rally Finland this year. Just in case you thought the chicanes last year were bad enough. https://www.autosport.com/wrc/news/134907/finland-revamp-removes-famous-stage In Dirt Rally terms, they'll be using Kakaristo, but not Kontinjärvi.

    Eden Games? source? Sounds like a guess. I'm going to say... Three Fields.

    Yeah, I was half-expecting GTR 3 to be the Blancpain game. I enjoy R3E's driving (and sound of course) much more than AC's, but I'm in for whoever is going to make a Blancpain game—especially with a career mode and driving school.

    Yeah, that’s why I feel they will have to do something about this. They have tv schedules to stick to, they can’t have everyone using up all their permitted lateness to try and get better road positions. Ogier did get some kind of penalty for it, but I’m not quite sure how international time works. On national time in the UK you wouldn’t get a penalty for doing that unless you were over your permitted lateness (often 15-30 minutes depending on the rally), in which case you would be Over Time Limit (OTL) and be retired from the event As I said before, if they add the time penalty to the stage that you were late for, the loophole disapears. 30 seconds or more added to the power stage surely means zero PS-points. Update: And he actually got a 4.20 penalty this time. Not sure, but you get 10 seconds for each minute you're late to a TC? Ogier got a 4:10 penalty time. It was Evans who got the 4:20 penalty, to bump Ogier back into 10th. Sneaksie M-Sport. I wouldn't mind seeing this kind of loophole closed, mainly because we TV audience were cheated of drivers to watch on the PS. But rather than changing PS format, it looks like they're being asked to look at changing how national events share WRC events. Bogani, you're right; that article also mentions the penalties: "one minute for every minute or fraction of a minute early; 10 seconds for every minute late".

    Dirt 4’s Sweden is the first time I’ve enjoyed Sweden in a rally game. I’ve been driving it in the R4 Subaru and the 2001 Subaru, and been having a lot of fun with the stages when the speed is up and the tires are really grabbing the surface.

    It had to be really bad thou. If you look at the splt 3 he lost +2.4s to Mikkelsen, splt4 already  +9.6s and in the stage end +18.6s. Overall classification - from SS3 2nd +2.4 down from Thierry, ss4 +19.4s from Thierry.  With last 6km atleast 15s lost thanks to deep snow.  I stayed up to watch SS2 last night (bit of a disappointment with the technical issues) but as it ended close to midnight here I was falling asleep. I watched the highlights show on Redbull.tv and noticed the +19.4s and wondered how it could have been so bad when his SS2 was so fast. Definitely going to watch SS4 later.

    That's the upgrade offer from regular WRC+. It's a bit sloppy. I kept asking, and they finally refunded me the €30. But I still have All Live, since they said they can't cancel upgrades (their original excuse). So I'll enjoy as much of All Live as I can while it lasts. Only Mexico and Argentina will really be live for me, but having every stage and studio segment on demand is pretty great. I watched SS14 for that Dirt Rally action.

    What’s so bad about second overall is that the championship was his to lose in 2017. Ask Neuville what’s so bad about being runner-up.  :p   Yeah it’s early days in Monte, but still, not the way you want to see Neuville start after last season.

    Haven't heard back from WRC or PayPal since my last messages, so guess I'll be checking out what All Live is like for the next couple of days at least. Starting in 25 minutes...

    Pretty much what happened to me: no confirmation or chance to cancel, just straight to being charged. Last year I couldn't get WRC to take my money as the "pay now" button wouldn't work. This year they took my money without so much as a by your leave. WRC+: great content, iffy website.
