the 2000's class is missing. Weren't the Impreza and Foci confirmed?

Its been said that cars are no longer grouped by age, but on performance instead, so the 2000's are likely just regrouped within some other class
Pretty sure the MODERN RALLY R5 Up to 2000cc (4WD) part of the list are separated, it should've been MODERN RALLY: R5, Up to 2000cc (4WD),.... Two different classes. Mr. Coleman forgot the commas :D
There you go:

Looks like me and @KickUp will be teaming up again on some events this year. Hopefully our first event will be early April :) 
Somerset stages? If so I'll hopefully see you both there!
No more gravel for the foreseeable future for me. It's too expensive!
Shame, you could see if they'd let you just do porlock? ;)

A blast from the past, did it 78 /79 in my Mexico, DNF both events !!

Cjl9 did you see my post a few pages back ?  I posted links to the Vatanen Rothmans Escort livery amongst others for you.

That would be an expensive toll road  :s

@KickUp I saw on the AMA you mentioned driver portraits (and it looks like there are at least three different driver faces in the screenshots released so far)—will that include male and female faces?

@KickUp u mentioned the longest stages possible at the moment are 12-13km, does that mean even longer stages might become possible in the future?

That's awesome, thanks! My 4-y/o loves playing the female biker in Burnout Paradise, but I have to get her into rally. A girl driver and pink livery might do it.

Hell, when D4 come out, you choose the car I'll do the livery to your little girl ;) (Princesses and poneys are the best xD)

Ken Block's wife sometimes rallys.  This was the livery that she used once:

It's very expensive if you do what the car ahead of is did a few years back. They hit the bridge near the start on the first run in the morning, game over for the car and the bridge!

@KickUp Doing yesterday's daylies, I was reminded of something - how about the handbrake being disabled on cars that effectively didn't have one, like the Group B cars? Any chance of that happening? Would be fun for the authenticity AND challenge sake :)

Probably not, mainly because we're not racing in those time periods, merely with cars *from* then, which have since all been retro fitted with hydraulic systems.

My thoughts exactly. We're racing in 2017 not 1985, there is likely to be some modernization.

I'm actually reminded... does @KickUp stain his face? How is his beard that thick and black while being so short? I've seen a fair amount of beards in my time, but his looks insane.

Paul's beard is indeed, epic, and I too have questioned his genes in the afformentioned epicness :)

So what did we learn from reddit?

1. No saveable replays
2. Current SS length is 13km max.

What I found most interesting:

highRPMfan
4h

Can we please have a Volvo?

7
cm_kick_up
DiRT Dev Team
4h

You'll have to wait and see ;)

Just watched the Dirt Show, but I was so busy looking at Paul's beard I don't remember what the show was actually about.  :(

Yeah I saw the Volvo request, I'm like the possibility, so much stuff might happen with late licensing deals.

Likewise, there was mention of currently talking to Skoda and Citreon about some models,. 

Again, all based on what deal may, or may not workout, but love that they have a chance :)

Not wanting to be too pessimistic, but when Paul says that, chances aren't very good (sorry!) If I'm remembering DiRT Rally's licensing track record straight. What matter is that they're trying their best.

I thought the clubs (leagues) stuff was really interesting:
*Improved event creation and curation on DiRT4game.com.
*Full Your Stage integration (generate stages on website, with on-the-fly spline graphics!)
*Hidden Points
*Custom penalties
*Brand new, scalable scoring system to support tiny Clubs, huge *Clubs, and everything in-between.
...oh, and they're Cross Platform. ;)
Cross-platform! :love: That's a big boon for my gaming community.

Hehehe. I don't stain my face or use a permanent marker.
