Yeay! Finally found a decent setup which made me feel quite safe in Poland for once! Probably my best event this season. You'll be way ahead of me, but it's as fast as I can do in the Fiat 🙂

I had 3 rolls that gave a lot of timeloss. The last one in stage 6 was very bad, destroying the car and 2 flat tires. Luckily it was just 100 meters from the finish.

Maybe the heat in my mancave was just to much to keep my concentration...

I had troubles with the night stages in Poland but made no big mistakes. And I just finished Argentina .    Did one hairpin with too much speed and had some troubles get on track again. But overall I'm very happy with last two events.

I wanted to end the last rally in style, @denim398 gave me a hard time. After the first 3 stages I had a small advantage. As I was not happy with the understeering Escort I changed the setup.

In ss4 it seemed better, however ss5 I was just slow and lost the lead. I could close the gap a bit on ss6.

Again some changes on the setup and into the last stage. Now the setup was how I want it to be. Slight oversteer and set it up for a corner with the handbrake. 

A good stagetime and fastest untill now.

Congrats to all of u and the first five are eligible to the usual choices.
Once made, I will assemble another Season.

Though I have to say, I will probably again not participate as in a few days I'm gonna be quite occupied with the new FS2020-

Though I am a great fan of the h2, h3, gpB classes it seems there are not so much drivers in such a championship.

So let's go modern and fast with R5 cars.

For those who could follow me at the last championship, seek for good competition and want more rallies, take a look at WRCgamersclub (on facebook).

@SkyRex is it possible that, after a long time, we could do a new poll about the forced cockpit item?

Like Skyrex, I am out for most of the next championship because of a loooong holiday

Errghf...what a season.

Second half was a bit better, but...meh.

Had a very good chance to win in Poland, but ruined it with a very LIGHT ditch on a bank.
But the tyre said haha to me.

Anyway...

Congratulations to @Janneman60 who deserved the victory and also to @denim398, who was sometimes unbeatable fast for me.

Regarding my decision for the next championship: I choose Scotland to be completely dry, no wet surface or rain at any time.
If Scotland is the drop out-rally, wich I doubt, then the same for Wales.

And my personal opinion is, we should open up the forced cockpit cam restriction, because that keeps players away maybe.
I mean, we can always put it back to restricted after a while, but for the moment, we need more racers.

For me personally it is more important, that everybody sticks to the 1 car per championship rule and does not cut like a maniac.
I refuse to leave the track with all 4 wheels at any time, even it is faster.

I did not check all seasons but I choose"Northbound" 

And would be happy to vote for unlock camera if that helps to get more people in.

I would definitely love to come back and have a shot at you guys if the forced cockpit camera is waived.

@SkyRex extended the votes a while ago to 4th and 5th place.
You can choose wich rally is the safari-rally.

It's not in the starting post, but on page 79? 80? Somewhere there.

Wow. That was an unexpected DNF, to say the least. Car felt good, quite a soft and relaxed setup, was in a good rhythm. On SS1, the car suddenly just went airborne while on the road. Think that section has a small ledge that can unsettle the car, but never experience it to that degree. Oh well, no damage, just a spin.

SS2 also felt real good, had good pace, ran safe. Did some small cuts, no problems. Then a quite small cut in a place that usually doesn't cause any problems flips the car front first, smashes a wheel, and when I get on the road I just nudge the outside of the road at slow speed and another puncture. Wheels failure, DNF. Wow.

Also DNF on SS2 with Terminal Damage wheel failure😩, punctured near the end Stage and tried to drive on, but no luck.

That was over quickly. After being quite fast in the first two sectors, I had a innocent looking contact with a barrier and got a puncture warning. The problem was, I actually punctured both tyres on the right side of the car and had only one spare. I changed one wheel and carried on for another sector, but figured out it would make no sense continuing with two and a half long stages still to come. So there's my first DNF of the season. Unlucky.

A decent rally without major mistakes. It was my first rally ever with the Citroen so the setup was not perfect. W'll see if it is fast enough.

Next 3 weeks I am on a holiday so I'm out for a good endposition anyway.

I went airborne unexpectedly in SS2 as well, or whichever had the fast uncuttable right 6 left 6. Couldve jumped over a 1.5m tall person there. I wasn't even near an edge, i was middle of road preparing for the chicane o-o. After SS3 i went to bed and..  - rage quit on SS4 due to forgetting its wet and not double checking the spares going away after an 'exit to menu' bug. Rest in pieces both rear tyres, TURN ONE.

 

This game is ridiculously unfun lol.

Well, don't know what happened to the other competitors, but I had a quite smooth and fast rally without any noticable big mistakes.
There was a stage (I believe it was SS4) were I touched about 4 times the bank and every single time thought: "Please no puncture, please!" 🤣

The car had almost no grip anymore towards the end in SS3 & SS6, so it got a bit tricky, thinking about using mediums in Australia, because it should get even worse there.

Well, i didn't expect DR2 to round down that hard in the SS4 service - i had to leave the engine unrepaired, my SS2 was just that bad. But it rounded down into some brutal misfiring territory when it wasn't misfiring before so pushing its limits hard = pretty simple terminal retirement later on.
