DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

I'd prefer having the option to have ghosts so I can actually feel like I'm having some level of human interaction

Anyway, Halloween is over so let's stop talking about ghosts, good gossip @RodgerDavies ! It looks like we will definitely be getting either Hyundai i20 wrc and/or polo wrc. Possibly but less likely ds3 too. I really hope we get official liveries, especially this year's polo livery!

@RodgerDavies 

I remember seeing a Fiesta R2 on there, I would still like to see this.  Don't know the probability.  

Some are asking for a Datson 270z car,  I would like this, maybe could fit into a Entry-level class with the Fiesta R2, but its a little out of place without a Africa (safari) event.

Take a look at Paul's Tweet with regards to R2 and R5: https://twitter.com/Kick_Up/status/660166772994256896?s=09
Suggests they've not developed those, and fair enough - R5 would be too close to 2010s, I'd rather they were merged together (as a semi-fictional class) personally.

Datsun 270 (I assume you mean 240) I don't see where it would fit. If the Alpine or Escort Mk I were there, maybe, but I don't understand why there's such a clamour for that car and not the 160J/Violet that won so many rallies and would be a perfect 70s class addition (although that class has the three best possible cars for it already).

Wasn't there a rumor a little while back that talked about Codies taking a lot of pictures of the mitsubishi R5? Maybe something will come down the line?

There has been talk about a RX entry class, so I guess RX lites might be possible.

Then we have the super secret cars that Paul mentioned. I don't believe those are on the periodic table. I have hopes for Colin's Impreza 97/98 but creating a new class for one car would be strange.

jeeez , how I would love to see an "End of 90s Class" with 97/98 Colin's impreza WRC ; peugeot 206 WRC and Cordoba WRC and/or Hyundai Accent WRC or Skoda Octavia WRC getting added on either final release or as DLC pack .

o:)
An early World Rally Car class would be pretty awesome. There were some great cars between 1997 and 2000!

There are probably more epic cars from 1990 to 2010 than there are in the rest of rally history combined together. Even if that means it doesn't include the most iconic ones (aka Group B monsters) but still, there's just so much in those 20 years to choose from it's hard to wrap your head around it.

I think the DiRT Show made it clear there isn't going to be a more modern hill climb car. 
They had one planned, probably the Peugeot 208 T16, but it feel through and that's the main reason why an all-gravel Pikes Peak is happening.

Agree they were probably banking on the 208, but this would suggest there may be an alternative on the horizon.......

Well, I think that a new 90's car can be included: the Sierra RS 4x4. Something similar happened with the 2000's class. There are two different shaped Focus. I know that it's unlikely but... impossible is nothing :)

Yes, another example of what I want to say.

I think we'll have another Mitsubishi as current Mitsubishi's folder named mer which would stand for Mitsubishi Evo R4 - so it could be 1997 Mitsubishi in Group A (which would be awesome) - it would fit for Subaru from that season. It could fit with Pug 206 from 2000, perhaps?

I don't think that we'll have another HillClimb car, I think someone said something that hillclimb isn't so popular in the end so they will not  focus they attention there (I may have dreamed that).

A* gossip.

I don't believe there will be another Evo, seeing as Paul alluded to there being a singular one and 'not the one everyone wants' (or something to that effect), which implies no Group A model to me. I also find it very telling that there isn't one on the Periodic Table.

However, if you add the 'secret prototypes', the Mitsubishi R5 visit rumour and the folder structure that you mention together, then we could be onto something........

I don't think there will be another Group A, three will have to do there. Obviously Mitsubishi and Toyota would be great but if neither is going to happen the others are all rather obscure choices (or other cars for existing manufacturers). Please don't follow this post with a huge wish-list of obscure Group A cars.......

I, personally, think some members are downplaying the last update a bit too much. I think we will end with a bang, just like we started with a bang.

Paul has recently started referencing what sounds like a new deal that's sounding very much like something that wasn't originally available.  I think it's two-fold; DR's popularity, and that we're now at the end of 2015.... things expire etc.  Obviously the first point helps with issues that are monetary on the licensing, as opposed to, literally can't get the license for love nor money.
