Went reasonably well with about three spins. 

I wonder how the icy sections feel with a well tuned Accuforce? With T300 there's almost nothing, unless you ramp up the forces, but then dry sections feel awful (clipping).

Monte was a disaster for me, but I expected worse because I'm awful at it.  I actually did pretty well until SS6 where I punctured my left rear just bumping one of the parked cars.  I thought I was further into the stage than I was and tried to finish on 3 wheels, but that was a huge mistake.  I must not be the only one having a bad day because I was in first even after all of that.

Got off with a terrible start, puncture early on SS1. Somehow I managed to climb my way to the top in the end.. 

 

You mean by driving the fastest time for every other stage?

Hehe, yes. But I was not expecting to make it because I was so far behind. And I really hate Monte, specially in DR2. In DR1 there was at least some grip in the snow/ice parts. Personally I don't care if the level of grip in DR2 is supposed to be like this IRL, it's no fun at all. The dry parts is kind of ok.

Monte is my worst location as well.  Something about it antagonizes all of my worst habits and makes me super cautious in areas where I need to be fast, and yet I still underestimate my speed in places where I need to chill out.  It's rare I finish a Monte rally with all 4 wheels attached at all times.

This was a short one. Good start and fastest in sector 1. Puncture in sector 2 and then puncture in sector 3. End of rally...

Well, at least I finished his time. Still maybe a minute lost because the Polo has the habbit of for no reason let the back step out and send me in a spin. Strange car this R5, tested some orhers they don't have that.

First run in a looong time driving without VR !! That was very unaccustomed to say the least. Reason for doing so; I'm attending finals in a competition where I'm probably not allowed to use VR. So I have only a few days to get used to driving on a pancake screen 😞 That's tough !

The only assist I use is "Automatic Windscreen Vipers". Everything else makes you slower..

Btw; I did not qualify in world series, I'm attending a different competition.

That went about as well as I could ever hope for.

New Zealand must be the only location where track degradation makes me FASTER.   Those deep ruts in the insides of tight corners makes that VW into a slot car.
