I like how Christina posts something here on the forums, then she also posts it on Discord and then members go ahead and post screenshots here from the Discord post. 😄

Well my two least favourite Impreza WRCars are the S14 and S7: and those are the two that have made it into the game! 😂

Hopefully more might come in later seasons!

So it should be S2 DLC with :

- 4 RX Group B

- Bennet's mini

- 2001 Impreza

+ RX tracks.

Still no hyundaï.

:classic_biggrin:

I might be reading too much into it, but Christina saying that the 2001 Impreza would come in "another season", rather than "in season two", makes me think it might follow later. 

I'm also not sure about the four Group B cars either. I wonder if it will be a pair of Group B RX cars, two modern Supercars (one of which is the MINI) and perhaps two Group B RWD cars (Lancia 037 and Porsche 911 SC RS)?

well I tend to have the discord open on a different monitor more than I have the forums up and refreshed, so I transcribe big things quickly without reading =P

Isn’t there also a problem with his age in most of Europe for driving transits?  

 

So it does make sense to drive here since at 16 you can drive on any road in the US.

Yeah, Oliver has been using a Latvian loophole for some events!

Hi team! So, there's been a bit of confusion over which Impreza's going to be in the Season One pack. After double and triple checking, I can confirm that it is the 2008 Subaru Impreza coming in Week 9. We were right in the first place, the correction was wrong - it's the one piloted by Petter Solberg in the top flight international rally championship 11 years ago.

However, because of the boo-boo, I'm allowed to tell you this: there was only confusion because we'll be bringing the 2001 Impreza to the game in another Season. 😉 

Sorry again! The good news is, we know to double and triple check before publishing/amending lists now... 

Awesome, I played DiRT 2 from start to end with that car back in the day, hoping for the same liveries to be present as well.

YES! Praying for the Ford Focus 2001 to come along with its long time partner in DiRT Rally Subaru Impreza 2001 😄

This also means we'll have 3 cars of the modern era 2007-2010 now, instead of just 2. That should give some more hype.

 

There's also another 2008 Subaru, the long one. So I guess we'll have to wait and see. I dont remember Petter driving the hatchback, Marcus Gronholm did drive on in his private team.

Am I the only one thinking the livery could look much better? The details are way too BIG. Somehow it just makes the car look a bit corpulent?

I thought that as well, I much prefer the McRae tribute livery David Higgins used:

That's the 2007 season car (the S12b), the S14 wasn't ready in time for the opening rounds.  

Solberg drove the hatchback (S14) later in the 2008 season. Atkinson used a modified S12b in 2008 (the infamous S12c), then switched to an S14 later in the season. 

It was supposed to have been McRae driving in 2008, makes you wonder what would have happened to SWRT if he hadn't died in 2007.

Yeah its the hatchback, the hawkeye has a 2007 plate.

The last three S12b's built by Prodrive didn't see action until 2008, so you could maybe say they were 2008 cars...

...I think that is clutching at straws though: the 2008 is surely the hatchback!

I would think officially you'd have to call them the 2007 model, if you have 2 different Imprezas as 2008 you'd just confuse people lol. '57 plate goes to the end of February as well I believe so there is a bit of overlap

I'm glad to see a new Subaru appear in the game but unfortunately the Impreza S14 is probably my least favourite Impreza WRC. And not that highly-requested by the community if I remember correctly. 😅 One day we'll get the S5, S9/10/11 or S12b, I'm sure of it and we'll have a great bonfire to celebrate that day!

I'm guessing some of it's down to that they pretty much already have it modeled from DR and can use that as a base?

Ooh something that popped into my head last night but forgot to write in here. I'd love to see head-to-head return, I loved that mode on D3.

Yeah, I am trying not to be negative about it (especially when Christina has run around to get us the answers), but I think the S14 is the least requested Impreza as well! 

Still, nice to have another more modern WRCar in game.

The S14 is one of my favorite WRC cars, also because quite a lot of them have competed in the Netherlands. Hopefully we can get some of those liveries:

Hmmm, I'm not sure on that. The R4 is aesthetically and mechanically different, plus it sounds quite different. They can use the wing from before though!
