Favourite corner sequence?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what others thoughts are, and this may be a bit hard to fully describe, but does anyone have a favourite corner sequence from any of the rally stages? For example, I am reeeeally quite happy with the New England sequence where it’s a 1 left (or right depending on course layout) over junction. Basically a really wide hairpin, but if you get it right, it feels soooo good, especially in a RWD car. Just buck the back end out and powerslide through it. I think that corner sequence alone shows some of the power of the upgraded physics. The next corner sequence I’m looking forward to is the sections in Germany around the abandoned airplane, where it’s all tight hairpins and acute turns and stuff. That part really is gratifying when you nail it. Any other suggestions for great drives?

There is a section in Spain, I don't remember the name of the stage, but the section is very fast and twisty and it feels awesome when you nail it, in spite of those floaty tarmac physics.

Also, those narrow twisty sections in Australia when you have a drop on one side and you're almost flat out into a right 3, pretty cool.

Speaking of Spain, my favourite through there is the long stretches where you can really open up the throttle. Centenera is a good stage for that. Wide open, bouncing off the rev limiter, that is perfect for me. Granted, then I’ll trash my car because some of the corners are rated a bit high in my opinion, but if you get it right and rush through there cleanly, I think it’s great. Centenera is a darn near perfect stage in my book.

It is very hard to choose a few because track layouts are great in overall in the game, most of them has a great flow.

I really like that section in Poland where you have to get around a warehouse on cobblestone road, feels great when you manage to link together the drifts in an rwd car.

Another one is in Australia, Yambala Descent I guess: forest section, you jump through an easy right bend, going downhill a few meters than at the bottom part the road turns left and uphill, still quite high speed, than at the top going into a longer right 3 or 4. Quite scary to going high speed into a blind jump than you have short time to setup the car for the climb and the sudden right turn. It's a blast!

I like anything that's slow and technical, because that's where the most time is lost or gained, so the two consecutive hairpins in New England are always a treat for me.

I know what you mean about the notes that are too high, but get in to free play and see 6 gear corners as a target. There’s usually a line or a hidden apex that if you hit you can feel like a god.

Now that Germany is out, mine is the section I think of as "the bowtie" because of how it looks on the map 🙂  There really are so many cool choices now in 2.0!

Nice thread, I'm going to have to give this one some thought as there are certainly a few.

First thought is a few of the USA sections, like the one where the there's a long sweeping 3 left followed by the straight with a kink over the crest and heavy braking into the square right, and the section with the double junctions.

Spain, I like the transition corners before/after the really quick part and the mountains, with the barriers to one side and the wall to the other - you can straight-line a lot of it.

And, of course, inland New Zealand is just one long lovely sequence!

Use these to point out your sections, should hopefully make it easier for everyone.

My vote is this section circled in red

It has the hay bale corners which feel sooooo good if you hit them right and it really tests your ability to hold your line through tight sections at speed. That and the double apex right around bales before the hairpin is just so much fun to hit :classic_biggrin:

The hairpin in spain, and also the stage where you have several 5 lefts and rights after each other which you can cut. Lovely rhytm

I know exactly what you mean. There are a few areas in Spain that are gratifying- but one stretch of road in particular where it is 3’s and 4’s back and forth in quick succession and it feels so good going in to and out of these corners when you nail the timing and throttle input.

I always used to tell my driver off for doing Scandinavian flicks on tarmac! 

 

Not fast IRL but definitely more fun!!

One of the shorter New England stages. The name escapes me but there's a sequence of hairpins and square rights and lefts that are really really fun to drive in the RS1800. Also the New England stages remind a little of the Forrest of Dean and the Wyedean rally for any UK national rallyists out there.

I wasn't really feeling DR2 and didn't play it much for 2 months but I sort of stumbled upon this combination of car and stage and am absolutely addicted now.

I know what you mean. The only thing missing is the mums pushing buggies on the stage....

I'm about 10 minutes from Chepstow Park Wood/Trellech so thats my local rally.

I think I know which one you mean, and I completely agree.  It's possible to push a lot there, and when you nail it it's just sooooo nice.
