Hi everyone! Welcome to the 2018 International Rally Championship.
We are looking forward to having an another season of the Rally Championship! This idea of creating a rally series started when I was competing into a rallycross championship on GT6. That took me to host a WRC championship, however, seeing that it was complicated, it ended on being a failure. But while my old PS3 was broken and that I was still waiting for a new one, I already was planning to revive the idea of doing my rally championship and make it sucessfull, as there aren't very much rally championships which are sucessfull.
In September 2017, Pedro Harsk has stepped down as a GORO steward which ended the cooperation between GORO and GRC. As a result, the Rally Senegal was the last GT6 Rally Round under the banner.
So, on 2018, The Rally Championship will now become the International Rally Championship and will also be hosted on Gran Turismo SPORT, however it is a sequel of 2017 Global Rally Championship.

The 2018 IRC will contain 5 classes, the main Class being R1 (Gr. B Rally Cars), R2 (N300 Cars), R3 (N200 Cars), R4 (N100 Cars) and the TT Class (Ford F-150 Raptor). Since the establishment of new era of 2017 GRC, the Race Cars, Vision GT Cars, Prototypes and Supercars have been banned from competing on rally rounds. This year also marks of Trophy Truck Pick-ups competing on a rally championship for the first time.

With that, the rally championship will become more realistic and fair without having to worry about the Race Cars.

If you have any question, suggestion or feedback, please let us know. 👍

Enjoy! :cheers:

I’ll do car number 0, if that’s taken I’ll do 75.
For car I’d like the Peugeot gr.b. If that’s not allowed I’ll do the Focus.

Number #0 isn't taken yet, so the number #0 is now yours! 👍

Peugeot RCZ Gr. B Rally Car is not on Homologation List for the R1 Class, therefore, you will be the 3rd driver on taking the seat of Ford Focus Gr. B Rally Car. However, if you choose the Ford Focus ST '15 (the road car), then you will be allocated to N300 Class (R2). 👍

Not sure of the either tbh. Lol
I hope that you can confirm your entry before Round 1 starts.

Ah! I forgot to tell you that that the Round 1 from Rally United Kingdom has been postponed and rescheduled to 26 February-4 March. The reason why of this decision is to give some of participants a little more of time to prepare their car Liveries for 2018 IRC.

And last but not least, the Round 2 from Italian Rally has been pushed 1 week forward from its original planned date (5-11 March) to the week after (12-18 March) to allow drivers take a rest from Round 1 before the Round 2 starts. Apologies for any incovenience. 👍

@Harsk100 Okay I'm almost set. I think. I need to read up more first.
My livery is almost done, but where are the livery examples stated in 6.6? Like, what should the Gr.B logo look like, and where? :P
