Ireland or the Isle of Man would be good. The Welsh stages could probably pass for any upland forestry area in the UK, so I could probably cobble together a British Rally Championship!


U.K. Rallies do tend to differ quite a lot from forest to forest. Wales tends to have a lot more technical and flowing stages, whereas quite a few English forests tend to follow a sort of grid pattern so you get a lot of long straights and sharp turns. You've also got the Somerset stages which is famed for its red dust

Top 5 locations:
1. Ypres (very fast, uneven/bumpy tarmac, very narrow with deep ditches, cutting corners is a true art here, a proper challenge, my home rally)
2. Manx Rally (jumpy, very fast and narrow tarmac stages, one of my favourites)
3. Barum Rally (always been a fan of it somehow, amazing stages)
4. Rally of Azores (beautiful scenery, stunning narrow gravel stages, technical)
5. Japan (similar to what is was in RBR, one of my favourite gravel locations)

Honorable mentions;
Safari Rally (future)
Deutschland Rally (Especially the vineyard stages. There is something special about driving there)

My vote goes out to another tarmac event that is completely different from what Spain offers.

This is on the higher scale of improbability but I'd like to see a tarmac rally based on Norwegian mountain roads. With massive snow walls to boot



Dry summer tarmac mixed with melting snow would be really interesting to drive.

Irish tarmac would be my preference: silly fast and very narrow!





[wishlist]

Ireland wouldn't be my first choice, but with the improved tarmac physics I'd pick a tarmac location for sure. At the moment, there are three gravel and one tarmac and I wouldn't say Spain is particularly typical of tarmac rallying - I would love to see Ypres, Zlin, Valais, Mosel or, indeed, Ireland added.

[/wishlist]


Every time I run Semetin 2009 in RSRBR I take one breath and one blink before the stage, and one breath and one blink after. Zlin would be glorious!

Some good tips in there...


...I intend to ignore them all, get in a rallycross Supercar as soon as possible and probably end up in a barrier. :smiley:

No thanks!  :D Swedens snow banks are more than enough for me ;)

Since I cannot pass up a wishlist.  Here a a couple of mine:

New Zeland, because of this pic. https://goo.gl/images/9halS3

Something like WGB Great Omre stage 

I've been mentioning this for years now, never going to happen, but this is just a beautiful location 
https://youtu.be/BGYMHUnZ5Ms

And just like others have said Kenya/Safari
  BUT, the cars must be properly outfitted with safari running gear (snorkels, roof tires, etc) and we need mud!
https://youtu.be/gSrS8DwduG0

i think some of those tight boggy roads there in Africa would be pretty unique, just parts, not a whole stage

@KickUp

Finally, what happened with famously "Mystery location"? You said it will be a mystery, can we expect a surprise location with the launch of the game?



Thanks for your feedback

The orme is a great stage, I've done it a few times. The kerbs are an absolute killer if you get it wrong. Porlock hill is another great tarmac stage here in the uk

I was messing around at the time. It actually was meant to offer a quick way of getting into a Rally without making any choices but it didn't make sense to keep it so we got rid.

I won't be able to play until the Sunday unfortunately. That's if it turns up at all!

I live on a farm, not too remote, but enough to confuse delivery drivers. In the past few months, we've genuinely had someone attempt to deliver a parcel to a peacock, and another who delivered a parcel to a horse. Me getting dirt 4 on time is not looking hopeful!

Those snowbank in DiRT Rally would send your car straight to the interstellar space :D

That degree of rotation and level of driving :'( 
I know. Barely worth posting :/

Here's a new IGN video though. The rain is looking impressive :)

I was trying to tell if they were using Gamer or not, Cisco looked like it was Sim but not sure

What the ever living @#$& was that dubbed over engine sound for!?  They only needed to turn up the game sound in the mix instead of the constant jibber jabbering.

I know I am not normal, so I see the world differently (am I in good company? :open_mouth: ).  However, why is it when I see stuff like this it reminds me of TV news fluff piece?  They have all this talent and equipment to put out a great piece of marketing, and we get fake sound and game clips that are not really looking new, at this point.  Must just be me.

@KickUp  i was just watching the new deepsilver twtich, and it brought up a concern for me, the ai was ramming the crap out of him and didnt get in any trouble, if that happened in a read rallycross event they would be disqualified, how is this addressed?


Well I haven't seen the stream but AI updates are part of the new patch so stuff has been done there. Based on the previous stream they were using a very old build so the chances are this is not final.
Ultimately if the AI are too kind to the player then they will just stay behind and you will never have a race but they should not be deliberately ramming the player either. That said if you cross their line or block them then they won't let you get away with that. 
Everybody who played any of the Grid games knows that, the AI brakes extremely hard when you get in its path, it isn't agressive enough.

Great Orme is in several WRC games (generally inaccurate) but it's accurately modelled in Seb Loeb Rally Evo
