I saw that after I posted, but you quoted me before I finished editing my post! :classic_laugh:

I prefer the Petter livery as well, but brilliant to get both in the game.

haha, a nice challenge with a good reward. Thanks codies.

Fun though, they are from the WRC, but i think the official WRC game doesn't even have them 😄 

EDIT, another livery that would be great for a challenge is that of Chris Ingram (FIA ERC 2019 champ), because how he managed to finished the season and needed a crowdfuning project for it.

The '99 (S6) was the first one with a paddle shift @SkyRex. The gearbox was trialled late in '98 and then introduced in '99. It was actually a semi-automatic "H" pattern gearbox (oppose to being a sequential 'box). 

If the early Impreza WRCar comes then it should go into 2000cc as it was far beyond Group A, that said, if the specs are accurate then it's going to be one of the slower cars in class... 

...not that I care, as I'll drive the wheels off it anyway! 

They trialled paddles (or buttons) as far back as the 92 manx rally with Colin driving the Legacy. It messed up though and he had to use the manual shifter, theres a Bbc top gear rally report on youtube of the event. He still smashes everyone!

Ok, as you guys know, i am not fast dissapointed about something. But i think I am now.

I haven't played the update yet, but it seems the "Ford Fiesta Rallycross (STARD)" ain't at all the MK7 STARD version.

It's just the OMSE Fiesta what was in DiRT Rally 1, DiRT 4 and also with launch at DiRT Rally 2.0. This car is totally not the STARD car.

See for the Audi S1 and Pug 208 I can understand, they are almost not changed and the same as 2018.

But both the MK8 Fiesta have been updated.

Why not use the Fiesta R5 and change the bodywork for this one. ...

Single Stage I believe.

I think a lot of us would like to see a separate late 90's class if the early Impreza WRCar gets added though, at this point, I think its unlikely as (I assume) moving the Evo VI from Group A would require the leaderboards to be reset. 

That’s why I suggested the car appears in TWO categories, no need to remove it from the Group A leaderboards that way 😉

If they did it that way then I'd like to see the Evo VI tweaked slightly to more accurately reflect it's real life Group A-ish counterpart.

Yeah, they were running a pneumatic system for a lot of years, but it was unreliable for competition use.

By having a semi-automatic gearbox (functional or not) fitted to the car, the regulations allowed the use of a lighter flywheel, hence why it was left on.

Those would be a nice additional of locations, but I believe these are just names, not actual locations.  I.e same DR locations just renamed/repeated for their particular round.

We know that. It's just a joke. Because something was confirmed! 😜

Just wanted to quietly mention on here, maybe you all have heard about parent company of Autosport forming a games division called Motorsport games.  Well from time to time, I like to check up on our old friends that used to be apart of the DiRT team.  Guess who their creative director is?  None other than our old friend @KickUp.  Along with a number of former Codemasters Employees.   
 

* Please don’t turn this into some kind of debate or whatever, respect that this is Codemasters forum.  But I thought it would be nice to pass along the news.

So he's back in GB? 

Is it a game developer? Or just e-sport organizer? Can't get my head around it :classic_blink:
