Seaside rally?

Recommended Posts

Of all the CMR/Dirt games i've played I can't recall i've ever driven next to the sea.
Is this something you codies have though about adding? It need not be based on real tracks or rally.
Or does anyone know if there are any rallies that have taken place next to the sea?

I'm thinking in the ways of Forza Horizon 2, that game had some stretch of road that went by the sea.
And how awesome wouldn't it be to drive up and around mountainroads with a vista of the big blue alongside?


If nothing like this will be added I at least hope that some of the stages in Finland will be going around some lakes... it being the country of 1000 lakes and all.

There is a suggestion box for an American event, mind giving your votes?  

BTW Antoine's Lancer would be pretty sweet in the game as well.

I haven't played Forizon 2, but Forza 3 had a fictional 12 km Rally di Positano track, which I'd love to see again (or something like it).

There's a stage that comes to mind, Great Orme, was used some years in Wales Rally GB
It's very close to the sea (and this one actually would make a great addition to DiRT Rally's Wales stages")

You come into my thread and start to talk about something COMPLETELY off topic and want people to check out something else?
And yes, that car would be a nice addition.

Except the track in Horizon 2 looks a lot better than positano and it is a more enjoyable layout :) Youtube it, or download the free demo. That's what I did, don't want to pay for a driving game locked at 30 FPS.

gtRally was on topic. Olympus Rally is a seaside rally in America.

The co-driver in that vid reminds me of Juha Repo - Kankkunen's co-driver. He always read his notes in english to Juha because that's how he wanted it. Native tongue is overrated! :D

Alright. Except when he said "american event" could be as far as I know anything.  If he in fact did mean this Olympus rally then hats off to him :)

Not a big fan of that stage - it's certainly not a typical Welsh stage. There are some classic 'coastal' rallies though, a lot of the Azores event is, as were some famous Corsican stages. Not a great reason to choose a particular rally over others though, in my book.

There is a rally on Madeira as well. Doesn't seem to go by the water though.

I went out and took some pictures today. Worth noting, these are lakes, not the sea. Tracks going in environments like these would be oh so nice to drive. This is Sweden by the way. Maybe add world first Sweden summer rally? ;)

Remembered another british stage close to the sea
Marine Drive (Marine, Port Soderick, seen this same stage came up with different names through the years) of the Manx International Rally
It also already had it's game representation in Rally Championship 2000 (and i have fond memories of it :smile: )

@Nightswipe 

I think you misunderstood.  

I wasn't trying to hijack your thread at all.  I am sorry I mentioned the other thread or the dreaded 'American' rally scene (I live here, and its all we got, sorry, it sucks but its something).

Yes I ment Olympus rally, because of its WRC heritage (and here).  We do have some different events here and scenery than some other parts of the world, from my perspective.

I only meant to mention my thread because it included Olympus so if anyone wanted it they could look for it and vote.  Again real sorry.
