Finland is looking impressive! Very different from the gravel events we already have.

Yeah, the slowest corner I remember hearing is a 3. This is going to be fast.
There is a 2 and a square in there. That is all.

Just had a look at the steam achievements, we got some new Rallycross achievements.
Good spot! 

Interesting one has something to do with unlocking of the RX championship:

Playing With The Big Boys

Unlock the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

How would we have to unlock it? Hmm?

I really expected an achievement such as Magic Weekend: Win at Holjes by punting off your rival in the last corner
or Crazy Nowegien: hunt a moose down.
After the disappointment of the last achievements update (beat delta time for every stage), these new ones seem a bit more fun. Cross the finish line backwards, joker lap in every lap, don't touch anyone, etc.

Sadly, no achievements for wrecking opponent cars in online events, that would've been a great idea :(

How cool is this. Who recognises the piece of stage between 7:30 & 13:45

Would've been so awesome to have had the full stage in game.

@Rallycameraman
After the event, Ogier told the organisers that the tarmac was too grippy and they should make it more like RBR

The only parts he got to slide quite easily were either damp or dirty, BTW, this is the only really notable difference between real life and dirt rally stage, in dirt rally it's a bit too clean and some parts should be bumpier (worn tarmac)

You might need to play through the Rally career first to unlock it, i remember with DiRT 3 you had to do certain races to unlock for more stuff.

Haha fantastic, Irish-Indian accent, I love it! Somebody should get this guy to record co-drivers calls:

That Finnish stage looks mental!

Even turns called as 3s and 4s look so fast! I've been playing the Germany stages lately (I'm a bit late to the party) in 306 and 3-5s are so difficult in that car (maybe it's the setup)

In any case if there's one location which would make Paul's voice different as he clenches his buttocks on jump landings on the D-Box then it is Finland :)

Do we know whether any cars will come out with the Finland stages? Hmm?

I really can't wait for the RX update - because I've not been able to play DR that much I still have many cars to try and Champs to win.   I wish I completed more of the online events and leagues.

All going well we'll also receive the PvP update - can't wait to do punt off some Gossipers off the track! :)

@justbiglee - when the PvP is out you should do a special edition DiRT Show where peeps from the stream can take it out on the devs on the track :tongue:   By that I mean express their gratitude :)

Who said it was Finland?
The number of times he says "over crest" says it was Finland :P


Do we know whether any cars will come out with the Finland stages? Hmm?

According to the timeline "two legendary cars of two legendary drivers. Care to make any guesses?

I'm trying to pick my two guesses from Makinen's Lancer, Mikkola's Twin Cam Escort, Ragnotti's Renault 5 or Carlsson's Saab.

I know what cars are coming, and I can't wait for them. Fingers crossed they will be in their works livery too.

Well, if a young whippersnapper such as yourself is excited, I guess I can discount that Saab guess :smiley:  

Do you know the plan for the Modern Pack too, JOOI?

I know of two AMAZING cars, which are in development but I'm not sure which pack they will come out in. I think people will pee their pants when it becomes official.

But such intel was a result of me annoying Paul and Lee with MANY questions in Holjes so I definitely should keep my mouth shut!

No Tornado jet on the stage, real-life fail! DiRT Rally stage looks better! ;-)

Makinen's Group A Lancer would be a great one, as would Ragnotti's Renault 5. Ari Vatanen's RS1800 Escort maybe? Stig Blomqvist or Walter Rohrl S1E2? Or perhaps *whisper it* McRae's S5 Impreza WRC? 

Knowing the era of the "two legendary cars of two legendary drivers" would make guessing much easier! :smiley:

In the game the jet is on the other long stage. And if you look at google maps, there is in fact a jet there
