I still try to hold on that little hope that this car is coming in DiRT4 It would be a great PR move for OPEL if they want to put the car out there. But again it probably wont happen. But still it's looking really good.

I've read that it's only for presentation purpose to show Holzer capabilities. Opel didn't allow further development of the project and homologation.

Yeah I read that myself . Oh well. Perhaps in a future game.

Yea looking at this interview with one of the founders of the company who built it https://www.rallye-magazin.de/int/artikel/d/2017/05/18/holzer-wollen-opel-ueberzeugen/ (in german), hes saying that after they build the adam R2 for opel they wanted to put their mechanics and engineers on a bigger rally project and want to prove to opel that the corsa is a great platform to build a rally car from. He's saying that they'd be ready to do the homologation work if opel gives the green light.

The heat haze before the stadium truck race as well as the sound as they all floor it in unison is stunning

Watch the twitch stream linked before. That's confirmed simulation handling. Sadly with assists, but still. The R2's in Australia/Michigan looked to handle sweet on those roads.

People still worrying about the bloody handling!

yeas, that very much looked like gamer handling, or possibly sim with all the assists on, but I think it was gamer

@PaloSamo that explains actor instead of actual co-driver. First race entrance.

The stream did look really good so that's why I kinda worried about the Polish video.

OK but honestly it is still rather confusing because it actually terminates the whole purpose of getting/buying a team. In the career you don't need it. It seems you can work your way through the career without ever buying/owing a car yourself. Could it be that the prizemoney for the events is higher when using your own team? What is their to gain for the player when using his own car, team? 
 






It's the difference between making peanuts or making bank.

Anyone know what car is being driven in Spain at about 1 minute in the video?

Hehe, yep thats definitely how it looks to me. I know some people are still worried about this, but I dont think they should be. BTW in this thread a guy who has played D4 in sim mode for several hours and also played a lot of DR, has already said that in the handling department, its as good as DR and even better. Check it out here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/dirtgame/comments/6bme0f/i_have_driven_about_5_hours_on_dirt_4_so_far/

Don't worry guys, Its gonna kick our arses just like in Dirt Rally...

Preordered today. I have a feling I won't be dissapointed this time, gonna have soo much fun with Your Stage. Let's remember vanilla RBR offered just 6 rallies, yet we had soo much fun playing it for years. I must admit I bought the game in preorder to support Codemasters. Dirt 5 already sounds nice with all features that KickUp flagged as "we want to do this in the next game". 
On a side note I always preferred music made originally for CMR series over licenced songs, hope to mod D5 and get those sick CMR 2005 tunes to play in menus.

for the people who couldnt tune in, this is the VOD of the stream.





It really was a great video to get to see at this stage, thanks @RoadRunner11 and @Etirion :)

It was also great to hear at the end when the publisher guy says that they will be doing more of these streams as the launch date approaches!

Other things I took away from this video were:

* (As mentioned earlier) The crash physics look hugely improved because the way the car rolled on a couple of occasions looked very real and weighty...(I may have made up a word there) and a lot better than in DR.
* Fearless mode has a seperate Ai difficulty that is harder than Master level in DR, I was thinking that it only turned assists off and took the HUD away, but what I still want to know is, does it also restrict certain views like Chase Cam @KickUp @ChristinaMc ?
* You can earn money in custom/freeplay! CHA-CHING! :smiley:
* You can play as a Driver/'Lunatic for Hire' OR Team Owner/'Cruel Slave Master' throughout entire career, the choice is yours!
* Exploiting your employees by paying them peanuts is entirely possible/extremely likely ;)
* Publisher guy seemed unaware that DR also had Rally Cross...
* Chubby guy kept letting it slide ;)
* Maximum complexity in 'Your Stage' is a bit 'mental' and barely leaves any time before the next corner! Eating tacos BETWEEN instead of DURING stages is now highly recomended  ;)
* Car seemed to slide like "rich creamery butter" on those tight asphalt corners! Me likey :smiley:
* Snow now has a sexy looking glare that also adds a new difficulty by BLINDING YOU! :# (Sweden, who hurt you and why do you take it out on me? :()
* If you can drive decently you will probably spank the 'Easy AI' buy about 30 seconds and still have time for a leisurely crash!
* Sweden still sucks :D but might have slightly wider roads? Or maybe that is just wishful thinking to help me cope with previous trauma  :|
* Spanish roads look freakin sexy! Spanish women may need to 'up their game' to compete.  :p
* Twighlight is a really cool looking addition to the stage settings. I will create a 'mini game' and pretend I'm on my way home for dinner, if I dont win the stage, my stake gets cold :#
* Wheels and coffee tables dont mix well. Also, wheel stands are a sound investment in preserving one's sanity. ;)
* Sony is taking over the world and every gameplay footage is now on a PS4  :D
* Buying an Evo is really quick, perhaps too quick?
* Publisher guy likes his free G29 and is cautious to wheel abuse ;)
* GTA style public mow downs are still not possible  :p
* Michigan looks beautiful.
* Talking whilst driving is a dangerous endevour.

*And lastly....




Really hope they do some more streaming before release and for the sake of everyone, that they can locate a wheel stand!
