I think for this next thing this is the right place for it!

I don't know how i forgot to mention this before, but seriously a great rally themed boardgame called Rallyman. Probably best thing i have ever owned and played (with Dirt Rally ).
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/60435/rallyman
http://www.rallyman.fr

This game captures essential parts of rallying and truely let's you even feel a little adrenalin rush when tackling those stages. 
Easily moddable, so this game can be played with many different styles. 
-Want more "rush", add an timer.
-want different car classes, easily moddable rules for that
-want to recce or go blind. Can be done easily
-real tracks? We'll this takes a little bit work but printing google maps and editing them with photosop etc to have sufficient markings.
-there is an official extension called Dirt.
Etc, etc. 

So many ways to mod. Even some have made tracks 3ď models and to be playable with model cars 1:43 example.

I even played it with using my projector, so that those track markings where big enough for 1:43 model cars.

Point is, that i can not recommend this enough.

Oh man you're so right and I can't believe I forgot to mention this too! I love Rallyman. It's a brilliant board game that captures the feel of rallying with a remarkably simple design that somehow packs in different road surfaces (tarmac, snow, and gravel), on modular boards, tire choice (hard, soft, snow, gravel), cuts and jumps, water splashes, slides, mud, damage, punctures, a Sisu card, and so on. The regular game is 1/220 scale, and the Rallyman site sells some metal cars (Fiesta, Polo, DS3, Mini, Impreza), and there's a bigger 1/144 version with almost 100 metal cars in that scale.

The official site also runs an annual year-long competition, of six stages per month: http://rallyman.fr/index.php/communaute-forum/world-rallyman-cup

Unfortunately the Dirt expansion (which adds gravel roads, gravel tires, and water splashes) just went out of print. You can still put it together with the 1/144 scale components, but the 1/220 scale is done for the foreseeable future.

Rallyman is one of my favourite board games, and couldn't recommend it enough.

Edit: Oh yeah, and the game was designed by a rally driver! His first board game design.

Initial D Creator: If I Do a Sequel, It Will Be About Rally Racing
"When Initial D was starting, I considered highway racing and rally racing," Shigeno said. "From here on I'd like to continue drawing manga, and if I do an Initial D 2, I'd like to make it about rally racing."
I haven't watched a lot of Initial D, but it's way better than Goddamn. Bring on Initial Dirt!

In this WRC.com article today I learned South Korea has a reality TV competition about rallying, called The Rallyist. The winner was Chewon Lim, who'll be driving an i20 R5 for Hyundai this year. Some of the episodes are online, but only in Korean:

I find it amusing how all the logos in that tv chow was blurred. They even blurred out Hayden Paddons name at one point

It is a quite recent video but it is in French. I think however the non French speakers are still able to like it  :)

Had to go 15 pages deep to dig this out :D 
Anyway, the new season of Subaru's Launch Control had recently started, so far there's 2 episodes (in case anyone's interested and had missed it).
And also wanted to ask, if anyone knows if there's anything similar to this from other brands?

If anyone here is into LEGO, or thinking about it, there's going to be a Technic rally car next year! 1,005 pieces, longitudinal V6 in the rear, radiator up front, steering, suspension, and roll bar. Doesn't sound like it has gearbox or differential.

If that Technic rally car is too much, or not enough, one of 2018's Speed Champions sets is going to be Tanak's Fiesta!

I need that Fiesta in my life.

Also Rallyman, but there are no US distributors. I just need to bite the bullet and import a copy one of these days.

Discovery Channel series behind the scenes of Subarus 2006 season. Engineering the World Rally. Picture quality is cack, but it's a pretty interesting watch.

Engineering the World Rally was a fantastic series, but depressing viewing if you are a Subaru fan!

That reminds me, the Amazon Prime series on McLaren’s 2017 season is going to be available soon. :cry:

Hello! I fell in love with Dirt Rally and spent much time to create these two videos to show how great this rally simulator. I think you can appreciate it.

The new edition of Rallyman, the rally board game, is up on Kickstarter right now:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/148661905/rallyman-gt/
Yes it's GT racing and not rally, but that's only to start. There is a solo mode that plays like the original Rallyman, and rally content will be coming in an expansion.
