DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

Just looked at the picture again. It looks like a treeline on the outside of a left hand turn? Struggling to think of a current World circuit that has a corner like this other than Holjes. Apart from Latvia maybe?

Just looked up Trois-Rivières Canada circut, there are a few trees, but not likely.   I darkend up the picture quite a bit, there are a lot of trees in that pic!

103 Characters. 21 Words. 103 divided by 21 is 4.90. 

DIRT 4.9 CONFIRMED.
I did some quick research, and found found this:

I also used MS Word to count the characters and words in @ChristinaMc 's  post:

I know it's not in English bit it says:
      - Words: 20
      - Characters(spaces excluded): 101
      - Characters(spaces included): 120

If you ignore the full stop at the end you get 100/20 = 5

These two clues make me believe, codies are going to release DIRT 5, which could mean DIRT Rally was a one-time spinn-off :( 
Offcourse this is pure speculation and even though @ChristinaMc and @CMMcBabe clearly hint that DIRT 5 is a thing and that it's supposed to come in the (near) future.
As long as there's no official confirmation this is pure DIRTy gossip  ;)

All this might be due to the fact I have 38.6°C fever. It actually is probably
This is the brilliantly speculative sort of content I deeply enjoy. Keep looking. ;) 

It was noted that her post had C and B in caps, I speculated it might be extra RX tracks, perhaps Cataluya, Barcelona?
Or Canada and Belgium tracks?

I mean I read this as though codemasters were making an announcement, is that not what it says? I believe what I want to believe.

Oh, come on, don't be like that Babe. You'll always be my special lady.

As much as I'd like additional content for D4, IF it is, I still think some tweaks to car handling is a bit more essential.
If it is a new RX game, that could be very neat indeed as long it actually has more content than DR and D4.

That's not until May, so I hope we get some news on whatever is going on well before then!

Yeah I think you're right. The straights are curved a bit due to the curved paper, but what's on the table looks pretty much like the concept layout:

Damn, great spot if that's the case! The image on screen can't be the new circuit though, as there are no trees within the vicinity of the new layout!

Very pleased if there is a new track coming to DiRT 4 (though I am a tiny bit disappointed it's not an established circuit, guess its the perfect tie in for the event at Silverstone though).

But the question is: is that the WRX offices or the Codemasters offices? I got the impression from the tweet that it was just the WRX guys playing DiRT4.


Then again I may be a bit too pessimistic about this.

Hate to say it but I think the track seen on screen is Hell (Norway) and more precisely Turn 8

If you look at this video at 1:24 the background looks quite close to what we see on that screen....

Something is brewing! I can see it over the horizon shining its bright hope.
I just hope it also brews VR news before the Vive Pro arrives. Currently judging that that will probably be my entry point to finally get into VR and if D4 doesn't support that by then... Well it's probably Pcars2 and back to DR until a proper DR-successor arrives...
And where's Argentina or some other heavy gravel location?
:(

D4 is honestly a stellar simulation for RX and I still think YourStage is better as whole rallies, although a single stage by itself is inferior to the ones in DR. I could also understand an abandoning of DR from a business-pointofview. But the not-knowing if there will be more or not, is meh...

Maybe something important

January 25 is also the start day of Rally Montecarlo so it could also be WRC-related. I don't think there will be any DiRTy announcements though, probably just the long-waited handbrake...

it would have been more likely to have something dirt related if it was on the 26th. which is the day DiRT4 was announced last year,



Has it really been that long already?

Had my first rally of the year at Brands Hatch on Saturday! Very wet, and we didn’t have any wet tarmac tyres, so we ended up doing it on gravel tyres! Andrew Coley was commentating, he seemed to find it pretty funny, but it worked surprisingly well! We did crash into some tyres right in front of him though!

First time ive come across sos boards on a rally. A Focus spun on Graham Hill bend, and a MKII Escort couldn’t stop in hit them pretty hard. Poor escort was in a pretty bad way, luckily everyone was alright!
