I really thought that the R4 would be better as the F2 in Finland. Had a good run, when I compare my personal best times to this rally I only loose less than 10 seconds in 7 stages. But still almost a minute to @Scyy

But lets wait, maybe it is not that bad at the end.




Yeah, ill be interested to see how the final times from everyone works out.

Well, that was underwhelming. In SS2, I had several crashes and drove nearly have of the stage with a blown front tyre. In SS3 or SS4 I even managed to have two punctures at once and I finally stopped counting the spins and crashes. Because of my position in the overall standings I decided to just cruise through the last stages to pick up some points, but even when going slow I had some minor crashes. Bleah.

You'll probably beat me at Germany as you have the last couple seasons. This is going to come down to Wales I'm thinking.

Meh, Germany was a forgettable experience. Was generally clean other than a high speed off directly into a tree on ss3 where I was extremely lucky not to get reset. Then on ss6 I hit the damn concrete bushes on two corner exits one after another at the consecutive left 1s near the start of the stage and had to reverse out of each one. Lost a good 15 seconds from those several issues combined.

Other than that though I just generally wasn't very fast and couldn't really get my braking points down so was stopping way to soon on lots of the tighter corners and slowing down to much for the faster corners.

I'm probably only going to place well if others have bigger misfortunes than me.

I am missing out events due to how event schedule works out against me being out of home for work expeditions. But hey, i might get my other favourite country to drive. :D Last time events worked out better, as 1st event ended.. Friday midnight? so i got to do two events a weekend. Not this time around. >_<

Was thrown off by how far behind the Subaru R4 was behind a very old Mitsubishi R4 PB during my single setup run. Let alone keep up with the low weight of the kit cars. I might have a stage win or two, but over-pushing did me in elsewhere, darn. Rhythm had a reset mid-league too as ALL Steam servers crashed at once right before uploading stage 5 results.. Imagine my panic while looking at the "Steam is offline" alert. :X

Is that reply supposed to come with no text or... ? @Scyy






Stupid phone. I was about to type up a reply but had to get something done at work and closed my phone and it apparently decided to do that.



What I was going to say was nice run, I'm a little surprised how far ahead the r4s have been so far. If @yomrwhite finishes near the top he might get this.

Edit: nvm I don't know why I thought rene was an r4.

A good run in Germany. I maybe could have done more in SS1, but SS2 and SS3 were nice.

In SS4 I had a big big moment, a high speed spin in that very fast and nearly straight downhill passage. I put two wheels on the grass and spun for what seemed like an eternity. Fortunately I didn't hit anything and lost maybe 5 seconds although that felt much longer.

SS5 was okay, then in SS6 and SS7 I went flatout and tried to catch @Snaky115, but fell short by just 1 second. Looks like it's going to be a tight fight in Wales.

Exciting, all three of us have a chance of winning depending on the way Wales goes. I Definitely can't rage quit this time.

A solid run in Germany. Sonehow SS1 and the repeat of it in SS5 cost me 8 and 9 seconds the rest was very good.
And yeah, Rene rocks in Gernany with that Peugeot  B)

Finished Wales, put absolutely everything into it and set pb for myself on every stage other than ss2 where I went wide and off at the deceptive right 2 before a hairpin left about half way through the stage. Lost maybe 5 seconds there. Other than that was generally on point the whole way. If you win @YoMrWhite it's all you because that was as good as I could have really hoped to do here.

Well, those times do look strong. We will see how it plays out.

Damn, that is one of the things i can't wait for d4 for. No more rocket ship cars from the roadside bumps. It was looking like it was gonna be a good back and forth here as well.

I'm honestly a little surprised it didn't happen to me as I usually tend to have at least one corner I cut to much and get launched on here.

My title challenge was over fast. After a good SS1, I had a slowmotion somersault - yes, somersault, not roll - in SS2 and lost a lot of time. At that point I knew I would have to go flatout to have any chance of catching @Scyy. Of course that didn't work out, as I had a few crashes in SS3.

Sort of demoralized after this, but I decided to at least finish the rally. I managed to do that, but had more spins, crashes and resets along the way, as my concentration was gone completely.

Damn, was still a fun season with the lead going back and forth a number of times.

Mmm, Somersaults, thats partially why i didn't take my favourite car in the game - the Ibiza. I took the slower Subaru just for the sheer weight and practice and gear ratio testing.

Finally I found my way back to enjoying driving the Ibiza again! A few mistakes here and there, but overall fast and tidy :-) Was rather surprised that my times stacked up so well.

And big grats for the season win @Scyy!

Edit: saved some vids of SS2 and SS5:

Thanks @Dytut. It seems to me though if you didn't have those unlucky retirements you would have probably been in first considering your pace.

So I already know what I want to do next season and it's time for some group A action.

I didn't think I would ever actually win a season here so I'm pretty happy about this.

And that was a real close season @YoMrWhite. Lots of fun.

Congratulations @Scyy. Your win is well deserved. Very consistent season and you were fast, too.

By the way, if @dytut stays on top, we will have six different winners this season. Very nice.

So, Group A it is then for next season. Everybody taking the Ford should get a special badge for courage...

 Looks like the F2 are flying better in Wales as the R4. Did some good runs except SS6 were I halfway managed to flip the car head over in a really big way. To my surprise the lights stayed intact so I was 'only' losing about 20 seconds with it.

As @YoMrWhite asks, I will take the Escort in group A. It is a car that is as fast as the others, but don't you dare driving it one bit faster as your skills or it will bite you >:)

Good luck to you. I was considering it but I think I'm gonna go with the classic Mcrae Subaru which was the original plan.
