gah in preparation for the Festive Challenge today I practised with the SpaceStar R5 by doing an entire career championship with it... only to find that the event that wins you the SpaceStar livery is in R2 cars 😂😪

edit: done it. took a couple tries, but ultimately I am very lucky they picked a car class and stage I'm good at (aka easy ones)

GG! I finished 150th in the world, probably my best showing in any community event, only got 1 good run in but it was pretty perfect by my standards 😄

GG guys, I finished 156th. My fastest run was kinda messy but I'm happy because I was constantly improving and my last run was 16 seconds faster than the first one. I think you guys agree we would like to see more competitions like this, even for such a small prize. Not only on Holidays 😉 Happy New Year Everyone!

same. I got 123rd or something(!!!)

I get Tier 1 regularly in R2 and H2 FWD classes (especially in longer events when more people retire), but wasn't expecting to be that high...

Off topic, kinda, but over here in American Rally..  David Higgins and Craig Drew are no longer signed with Subaru.  David has expressed interest and his return to American rally for 2020, obviously in a different car.  
 

Before the speculation starts, I doubt Oliver will be back this year (maybe for one event) but I believe he will be following his WRC interest going forward as he should be.

Also I do not see Travis doing a full season as that takes a huge bit away from his nitro schedule.

my hopes are for Atko, he is a former WRC/Subaru guy and seems pretty likable.

Anyone else?

I hadn't seen the news about Higgins/Drew, that is an interesting development. 

The last rumour I read about Oliver Solberg suggested that he would be driving a Skoda in WRC2. 

Atko seems the mostly likely replacement in the existing Subaru line up: unless they are going to draft some fresh blood in?

@tbtstt  I wouldn’t mind someone young a fresh, as long as they are American with good talent.  There are a few over here, if groomed they would be great.

But from a marketing perspective, They are going to have to find some athlete from another sport (Think Dave Mirra) with a following to make that work.

Currently RX in America is a bit unknown after IMG pulled the plug on ARX. If two of your Rallycross drivers (Atko, Sandell) are a former WRC factory driver and a former JWRC champ, than it would be logical to go with them.

Maybe they now go for an North American driver, as there was a bit of critic that an “American” team has only drivers outside North America.

I daresay Higgins didn't have a big following (Stateside) when they picked him, so perhaps there is a chance of an unknown talent from Europe? 

Given that M-Sport haven't picked him up, I'd love to see Craig Breen appear at SRT USA!

Maybe they could do a Mentor type of thing, get Atko or someone like Breen to continue as Higgins replacement and groom some young guy till they are suitable to take the lead.  
 

Petter had some very nice words to say about American Rally and the potential it has here.  He said that the roads here are very challenging and different from elsewhere and liked that.

But this happens almost every day. We have put many effort to create a legitime Championship and now people can´t finish it, or they were put to „DFN“ because of this issue.

We're aware that it's been on and off the past few days.

Clubs should be back up and working now, there are investigations taking place to try and ensure this doesn't happen again 🙂

 @tbtstt  Maybe Petter's picture is part of the joke?  IDK

 

I would say that 70% of the players are actually THIS guy.  

EDIT: Just to clarify, the other 30% think kidnapping homeless codrivers is ok. 😛 

Well something needs to be done about the massive droves of roaming homeless co-drivers.

Yes true, judging by how quiet the forum is there’ll be no-one left to by any more dlc at this rate 😂  

Sure people will come back if the right DLC is announced: the forum has always had peaks and troughs in terms of activity.

Chances for Dirt Rally 2.0 Year 2.0 content trailer on the event ?

Not planning to reveal what that December teaser was all about, at this event.

Things are coming together though but still a short while away, but I guarantee it'll be worth the wait 😉

Or a very short teaser like the Halloween one 🙂

Where in Ireland though? My vote has to go to Moll’s Gap, what better rally stage is there in Ireland?

Ireland has been on the gossip dream list for some time. It's the narrow lane thing. Isle of man would fill a similar role.

 

But yea, some very iconic stages.

Ypres Rally stages are narrow AND have deep ditches on the side! So no massive corner cutting possible! That solves one major problem some of the locations have. Not in Ireland though but still would be fun as hell...
