    Hi everyone! Welcome to the 3rd season of the GRO Global Rally Championship.
    We are looking forward to having an another great and fun season! 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.

    And also, the GRC-3 is a continuation from GRC-2, as the Organisation has commited a Huge mistake on making 2017 GRC season too short.

    The third season of GRC will be containing only 5 classes with the main class being the Group B Rally Cars. Street cars, Red Bulls, Vision GT's, LMP Protoypes and Race Cars have been banned from competing in GRC-2 and GRC-3.

    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. :tup:

    Enjoy! :cheers:

    First week is from July 31st to August 6th.

    So, anyways, with GT6 dying and drivers dropping out, the Schedule will have to be shortened to less rounds than expected. Simply because GTSPORT is coming on Autumn 2017 and as soon GTSPORT comes out, the GRO's attentions will be focused to GTSPORT and PCARS 2 respectively.

    Therefore sadly, there will have to be only 4 rounds, so we can say goodbye to GT6 Rally in a better way. Who is willing to do those 4 rounds? :cheers:

    Thanks John. :tup:

    Just to confirm: Will you keep racing with Delta? Or will you change to Peugeot 205, as Group B is now homologated for GRC-3?

    Cool!

    As Group B has replaced the Group 2/3 class, you have a Option of keep driving the Hyundai Accent Rally Car '01 or then change to another car, such as a Group B Car. :tup:

    It's understandable, but I hope that you are able to arrange a day to do your GRC Runs. :sly:

    Just to make sure: Will you keep with the Group A Lancer, right?

    Will you keep using the Delta? Or will you be changing to Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Evolution 2 '86 which you did in last year?

    Thanks John. Anyways, here are the results of Round 1.
    upload_2017-8-7_13-2-37.png

    There were four easter eggs during the rally:
    - Andrew Geier beats Luke Mitchell's record (7th in Rally Sweden) by finishing 6th overall in a Group A Car;
    - Christianne Harsk has driven her Toyota home into 11th place overall, which now becomes her best classification ever done in a Rally;
    - Audi starts the season the best way: 1-2-3 finish!
    - The Rally Spain beats the record of lowest number of finished drivers in a GRC Rally. The previous record of lowest number of finished drivers in a rally was held by the Rally Sweden.

    Note: The GRC-2 points will be mixing with the GRC-3 points to make the 2017 Overall Global Rally Champion. Thank you for taking part into Round 1 and see you for the next round, which will be the Rally of France! :cheers:
