Liam Doran is the only rallycross driver we know that has visited the Codies studio. There were even pics of him being interviewed in front of a camera?
We've had David Binks and Chris Mullen visiting too. ;)
Oh! Forgot about David and didn't know about Chris Mullen :) @KickUp is quite picky with the questions he chooses to answer :)

Therefore it figures that Petter and Liam want to concentrate on solo campaigns in 2015 and not worry about running multiple cars for team mates.

The World Rallycross Championship is a Monster Championship and Monster nearly always back one of the front runners (or Champions) so it figures they would want to get behind Petter. The whole thing works out rather neatly really: just needs Liam to ensure he doesn't wipe his "team mate" out!

Thanks for this @tbtstt - it all does make sense. I can understand that Petter Solberg does not want to give an equal car to someone else :)

Funnily enough that wasn't the problem last year; the second PSRX was setup up identically to Petter's car! Petter insisted the way he had the car(s) setup was the fastest configuration and that Hvaal should learn to drive it like Solberg rather than adjusting the car to suit his own style...

...although I'm not that struck on Liam as a personality I actually think he is one of the few drivers who could get the best out of a PSRX setup car. Guess we'll never know if I'm correct there though as Liam's team are preparing the car for him.

 Both the PSRX and LD Motorsport teams have been critical of the way the other team have built their DS3's in the past: I wonder how much (if any) technical information will be shared between the teams in 2015.

Hey guys, you can add me on Steam now using the same username as here - Rallycameraman

I don't think i'm going to be on DiRT3 for a while yet though, need to clear some space to move my racing seat around and get the PC moved about too, and I really don't want to play it on a pad as i've been using my G25 for too long now!

May play some other games with a pad though. Possibly Battlefield Hardline

Hmmm...interesting. Wasn't there a similar news regarding nVidia drivers for SLI? Would just anyone be able to contact AMD or nVidia and have them include information within their official update files? I guess people putting these configs together would verify if the information is legit.

Is this meant to be a driver for DiRT 3 CE instead of DiRT 4?

@GentleNameMVB 
This is probably legit.  This one was pretty obvious, but the Nvidia one needed to dig around config files (or similar) to find the reference.  I think this may just be communication with Nvidia/AMD based on internal Codies testing giving the manufactures feedback as weather it is working with the game.  Someone at AMD made an error and left this out with the driver update.  

We all know its happening, more than likely this year.  Only a matter of time before its announced (we are almost 5 months into 2015) when it will be released is undecided probably.  

F1:2015 will be great and exciting for F1 fans, but I think the race-sim world has been holding their breath for the next DiRT...  D3 is the benchmark game for all racing game and hardware tests.  DiRT4 being rumored for so long now really has built the hysteria even more.  

Is Codies taking notes from Apple with leaks/hype?  I don't want a gold plated $10k watch, I just want an awesome rally game

That's why I wrote "again". :wink: 

I don't think that is DiRT 3 CE related because it's the same game, same engine, etc... Usually they only add new drivers for new games (not for new editions*) and If it was DiRT 3 CE related they probably would put it on improved drivers instead of new drivers.

*except for remasters (which is not the case of DiRT 3 CE)

Well I think this should clear up any doubt we had left surround #ThatCar!

And if I've just ended up copying and pasting a whole load of code, here's the link to the original tweet. Good luck on the Somerset Stages tomorrow guys!

EDIT: Tried to paste the entire tweet embed code in here. Rookie error...

Yo dudes.

Not much to report this week, been pretty busy with F1 stuff and talking with business partners about a super special thing I'm trying to get to happen.

As you know we're at the Somerset rally this weekend too, I'll be running PR and Marketing for Jon Tucker Rally while Darren does the rubbish jobs.

Was good to see @RallyDriven tonight too :)

I'll be tweeting as much as mobile signal will allow :)

Good to see you guys too!

for added realism in the next game, may I suggest sleep deprived co-drivers from snoring service teams?

There is a rough cut video of Jon and Paul here too

As soon as I've got the time I plan on putting a proper video together too.

So either @justbiglee was showing his excitement of the above occasion (I think he's going to spectate) or... and here's the more wishful thinking type opnion... the car will be covered in branding of the new game and some information will be released either that day or soon after! :P

In any case it will be great to see the guys back on stages. Hopefully, they'll keep up the good standard of onboard footage :)

Maybe they should do an FY Racing style video, where @justbiglee is the team motivational speaker and motivates the team to forget the rally and go to the pub?
Well... I guess I should man up and admit I was totally wrong on that one :)
So now that all of my recent predictions were demolished I got nothing now...

Well done to @JonTucker and @KickUp on completing the Somerset Stages! :)

And @justbiglee I still have hopes for an edit combining the exciting rally and service shots, with your party shennigans in Minehead with @Hatward and @RallyDriven  :P

Oh so quiet on the Gossip front... 

Let's make stuff up then.

The next DiRT will be released on the 44th Monday of 2015.

Actually I had a dream about the next DiRT game. It was a bit like DiRT3, but the environments were a bit like street scenes from King Fury and David Hasselhoff tune... (check it out YT...). But then again that is not *exactly* what I got to play in February, so I'm a bit confused...

Well I just found Dirt 4 (drt.exe) settings after I updated my nvidia drivers on my laptop: 


Although this is much the same as what got leaked with the earlier AMD and nvidia driver releases, but hey, it's something.

Interesting again! Why drt.exe instead of dirt.exe? Does it stand for DiRT Revo Tetris? DiRT Rigorous Terrain?

Were there any settings released for F1 2015?

Noticed DiRT Showdown was rp6.exe, according to my Steam account history GAS was RP8. What does it mean?

Colin McRae: DiRT already has dirt.exe, but why didn't they choose to go with dirt4.exe, there must indeed be some explanation for this.
Maybe DiRT Rally(cross) Turbo?
Were there any settings released for F1 2015?
I can only find profiles for F1 2010 up and until F1 2014.
Would have expected F1 2015 to be there as well.

Unless.. DiRT 4 will be released first :O

Codies have a new website - http://www.codemasters.com/

Do we have any hacker-type guys, who can inspect the technical stuff for any hidden Gossip?
