    Looking forward to trying Latvia, but not as much as I am looking forward to throwing it into the first corner in Germany 100ft before The apex

    No I didn’t, but thanks I’ve joined now. Also joined the discord one. I’ll get mine running next week when I’ve got some more time. See you at the bottom of the leaderboards!

    Has anyone set up a dirty gossip club yet? If anyone was in my league from dirt rally/4 (Michaels league), I’ll get it up and running again. I seem to be having trouble on the mobile site though, it won’t let me change the number of stages/locations

    Yep car number 5 from the m-sport fleet. First driven by Sainz, last our in Australia last year. It looked like driving an old boat!

    Good to see clubs is finally coming! Can’t wait to see how terrible I am. Spotted some rallying royalty today at a rally in Abingdon

    Wow a new GRID game just got announced, didn’t expect that at all! Can’t find any information on it yet though

    2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship

    I’m sadly away for silverstone this year, but I will be in Spain so there’s that I guess. F1 was terribly boring. I don’t understand why fans always complain it don’t actually change the channel over and watch something decent like WRX or WRC. Or touring cars or pretty much anything else. I’ve seen 10 year olds have better races around a quarter mile oval than most F1 races

    Really happy for Timur, he drove brilliantly all weekend, it was well deserved. His reaction was brilliant too. I flicked over to the F1 afterwards and I quickly turned it off, it’s just awful

    Yeah I know, I wanted to go and you talked me out of it! 😂 Q4 was brilliant too, I hope there’s lots more racing on track in the finals. Timur has been really impressive this weekend so far, hope he can do well this afternoon

    I’m very hungover, but race 3 of Q3 has completely woken me up! This track is producing some brilliant racing! Can’t wait for Q4 and the finals

    So, early impressions of Spa? I really enjoyed the opening races. The track could probably do with being a bit longer, but it’s not a bad layout. Plus I think in the dry it will be cool to see them smoking the tyres out of T1. Timmy seemed to really enjoy himself

    I’m back, haven’t really posted on here in a little while. Really enjoying Sweden, much more forgiving when you touch a snow bank with the front end. Also, I posted a while ago to say I was doing the Clacton Rally in a Talbot Sunbeam. Unfortunately it won’t be ready for the rally so we are back in the trusty MG!

    How Far Away Is Realistic Audio?

    Yeah you often don’t realise how loud gravel is until you come onto a tarmac section and everything goes quiet! It doesn’t completely cut everything out, but the loudest noise you have in the car is gravel followed by engine noise. Obviously your co driver is right in your ear, although I’m normally the one doing the talking so I don’t really know what that’s like!

    How Far Away Is Realistic Audio?

    It’s pretty pointless posting on board videos because that’s not what you hear when actually in the car with your helmet on. One thing id like to hear is more gravel and kick up sounds on smaller/older cars. They don’t ride as high as R5’s so you get much more sounds of gravel hitting the underside of the car

    Personally I thought the track was ok. The merge wasn’t too bad, although I think they were lucky there were no collisions from merging (not including Hansen/bakkerud. There were a few close calls other than that. I think realistically the two most important things they need for next time is a proper off road section and something to stop them going straight on after the finish, either a different finishing position or a barrier across that part of the track

    I thought his comments about Kevin and his bumper were stupid before his incident with Timmy. It was hardly a big hit, and even if you are running on a budget you’ve got to expect some body damage over the course of the weekend. Yes it’s annoying to happen early on, but you can’t get pissy every time someone gives you a tap. Maybe get angry if they’re doing it constantly, but once isnt really an issue

    It was a genuine mistake from Andreas, as others have said he wasn’t the only one to make that mistake, but it had the worst consequences. I think the issue could be partially solved if there was a temporary barrier outside the corner so that they couldn’t go straight on after the race had finished. I hope the Peugeot can be repaired as it looked like it had sustained heavy rollcage and chassis damage. It was heartbreaking watching Kevin helping Timmy out of the car, especially as someone who also competes in motorsport with their family. As soon as I saw those if kerbs I knew someone was going to have an accident on them. It was a shame to see Bennet go over, but I agree that he is definitely out of his depth here. Overall not a great start to the championship this weekend. I was out watching other motorsportso I didn’t see the finals live, but I thought Niclas’ penalty seemed a little harsh, and I’m a fan of Kevin

    ***** what was bakkerud thinking?! He was never making it around that corner even if Timmy wasn’t there! I was quite a big fan of Andreas but he’s really disappointed me this weekend with the comments to Kevin Hansen and now this. Hope they’re both OK, but I can’t see either cars going again today. Big shame for Bennet, really not what he needed. Dorian looks reasonably quick but as usual he’s just over driving and losing time in battles

    It’s ok, the first few corners seem to provide a bit of action, but then it just seems to turn into a line of cars just following each other. Probably a fun track to drive, but not great racing to watch and it needs a proper off-road section, not just some dust

    Think you are about 5 years behind the conversation. You may have some reading to do

    Wow monte is a lot different to DR1. Very slippery on both the black ice and the snow sections. Just took the Aston up a long stage, and drifting around in the snow was very tough but a lot of fun!

    Okay I’ve just got in from work and Monte has disappeared from my championship, it’s now showing New Zealand again. Wish I had taken a photo last night, now I just look like a liar who couldn’t follow through when people asked for proof 😞

    I will try and rush through my championship this evening and see if monte actually works, seems strange that I’m the only one who appears to have it!

    People seem to think foxes happen immediately, which just isn’t true. The amount of comments on FB and Twitter I saw saying ‘it’s been a week, still no patch!’ How long do you people think it takes to do this stuff?
