Nothing new in here particularly but it's a good read and answers some recurring questions well.

Guessing that's our lot for today.

When it comes to stage length, I wonder if loading time is one of the issues that prevents the stage from being longer? I've read somewhere that Sony/Microsoft have certain guidelines for this.

Well it was already better than battlefield load times when we played it in November, although beating that probably isn't too hard!

Witcher 3 would have a word with you on that subject xD That thing has massive loading times, even on a PC xD
I found it ok to be honest, Battlefield 1 on my PS4 took a lot longer than W3 on PC :P

And this too! https://www.redbulletin.com/int/en/lifestyle/go-off-road-with-dirt-4s-creator-paul-coleman

We'll be out in Barcelona next week for the FIA World Rallycross Championship launch too - we may or may not be filming a DiRT Show out there!...

Grand Theft Auto V, you could finish a long stage before that thing loads (I'm not exaggerating)

Although who remembers back in the day the GTA VC and SA loading bars taking forever? I installed SA on my SSD a while back and it loaded in about 10 seconds...
Pfffft. I remember waiting for tapes to load on the Vic 20. 25 minutes of squealing noise and the bloody thing still failed...

Ohh... The memories of my Spectrum 48K, back in the day. It was exactly the same thing...

Not strictly DiRTy Gossip, but I just posted  a season preview blog for the 2017 World Rallycross Championship. If you are bored and have time to kill, then give it a click!

Fine, but only because I'm bored and too tired to play guitar. Pretend race cars topic is also iRacing which I look at long enough to close the page.

Working with electric motors a fair amount, they're not a great sound. The whole track would either be the sound of a cat fart or a high pitched whine.
Yeah, the absence of sound is what concerns me most @JZStudios. The technology seems very appropriate for rallycross but (to me anyway) ,a significant portion of the spectacle of rallycross comes from sound, especially in the case of the Supercars.

Electric Supercars would likely be as quick, but I don't think it will be as spectacular without the pops, bangs and turbo flutter.

electric?????????????   Anything Rally should not contain a electric power plant.  Electric cars will completely lose my interest in the sport.
I'm with you on that one. Rally cars should make noise - the louder the better, not buzz around like insects in heat.
Exactly. The sound of a rally car is something special. As an example the Escort fanatics we have on this forum who share their memories about the sound of a BDA echoing in the forests back in 70's... I just can't imagine that in future people are telling stories about how someone's electric rally car was hissing in a forest  :|

To be embedding electronics and electrical features to motorsport, it is always greedy business with fallacious so called "developing technologies for the better" claims for it is a huge spoil on genuine motorsport to become a consumed object gaining no fun from it... Surely, we will be missing the genuine sounds of petrol cars and the musicality that arouses us as rally fans.
