So, when are we getting the Audi S1, and possibly also a Volvo 240? :classic_tongue:

This was a painful moment to be frankly honest. Pat Doran went a bit too far...

My hand wanted to slap him, to be honest.

Noobs shouldn't be allowed driving such rare classic cars. Too dangerous...for the car.

In unrelated fashion, it's a bit "old" but I don't think it's been discussed here, anyone have any thoughts about this?

Ugly. I mean really ugly.

The old one has style, but this one looks like a wannabe.

I wonder if you are aware of the fact that Pat Doran is four time British Rallycross Champion? Sounds not like a noob to me. Mistakes happen always, that's part of the game.

No, I wasn't aware of who he is.

But that was definitely a noob move. You shouldn't drive such a rare car in a way it could get destroyed. Not cool.

Should have seen what Liam Doran does when he gets his hands on it. 😃

I love the fact that Pat was on the throttle all the way into the hay! 

It's a rallycross car and it has endured far worse on the track! They had the rear clam fixed that evening and the car was running again the next day. It's still going strong now...

...Pat and Liam always put on a good show!

Wait...the car that burned and the one that crashed in the first vid is the same one?

And it's still racing? Where they get the parts from?

I think they have a lot of spares, so it doesn't matter too much if they damage it. They run several RS200 rallycross cars.

Yep! The Q8 car is the "same" car that Pat was running in European Championship in the 90's... though it's been rebuilt many, many, times since then! 

Some elements of the car have been modernised, some bits they are manufacturing for themselves. The engine is probably the rarest part of the car now, as BDT-E blocks (and spares) aren't easy to come by. Julian Godfrey specialises in those engines though.

Yeah, the Doran family own two RS200's (one rallycross car and one hillclimb car), plus LD Motorsport built and run another rallycross car for Steve Harris.

In one way I want it in the game but in another way, I don't want it. Because if it was going to come to DR2 it would definetley come as DLC and I wouldn't be able to make liveries for it.

Well at least it took about 8 hours of being back on this forum before finding a post like this. Slowly thinning out.

Most certainly isn’t 😄

Jon was doing this rally anyway and figured “let’s put a DiRT livery on it” 🙂

Insane.

I thought 2 times at the beginning he would crash, but he saved it somehow...

That first one, wow. I thought he was off but he was planning to go off there so he could land at full speed 😮

Another Monster crash? The spirit of Mr. The Block really gets around. Never seen a car just disintegrate like that... well. mostly. 1:02 is the exact time the spirit of Mr. The Block possesses the car.

(Insert video here of the British Leyland challenge where everything falls off Jeremy's car over cobblestones)

You see that Monster energy sign in the background? Block.
