    Okay John, the Lancia is now yours.

    Now that most of cars are removed and that a proper car selection was made, it should be more easier now. :tup:

    @Obelisk but... why?

    That kinda sounded like me too. One of the worst in the championship to a win lol. In just a day of practicing at R246 with one of Thebes's slower gt500s (toyota Supra '06). I was able to knock 20 seconds of my total time in from my previous race (both 2 laps) and beat my best place of 3rd against a stealth GTR (behind by 10 seconds) after practicing for about an hour. I beat the GTR And beat him by 5 seconds (around 20 seconds better)

    Okay, thanks Trevor. :tup:

    The conditions of the track for this week's round are the following:

    Weather at start of the race: 80%
    Water surface at the start of track: 60%
    Time progression is 1.

    These conditions are simulating the Estremoz (which is a city located in Évora) forecast.

    Oh, by the way... I forgot to tag @BenMillard . :confused:

    Too much tarmac for a rallying event, for me. That's why I didn't sign up.

    It's understandable, I just arrived 10 minutes ago...

    I couldn't open a lobby earlier because I wasn't at home.

    Sorry for double post, here are the Round 1 results.



    Dillon Tsuchiya won its first ever rally, at his 3rd try, after he had missed a win twice. :tup:

    There is an update on the calendar: The Greek Rally will be now a running Time Trial Event in a Toscana Reverse; Round 4, which is Giro d'Italia, will be in Toscana Forward.

    So, thanks for your participation at Round 1 and see you at Round 2, which is ADAC Rallye Deutschland! :cheers:

    As we wrap up Round 1, I thought it'd be nice to tell a story about what these events bring out in people.

    This is about the team's fourth member, Jay Bee. Nice guy with a deep passion for cars. He just showed up in my life after over a year of total silence, which was nice.

    So he joined the team two weeks ago, bursting with enthusiasm for this rally, and we set him up to do a few laps on various tracks...And he was 20 seconds behind our lap times, with no clue how to take a racing line. And he was coming into a very competitive event, so we had to do something about it. For two days it was just small chat about the basics of driving, and then one of us opened a lobby and brought him in to show him what to do. Progress was slow until Thursday, when Ruwan decided to chase him around Willow Springs. Something clicked, and Jay was suddenly getting the lines right. The pace wasn't there, though...

    Thursday-Friday, we got the track for this round and decided to learn it. Jay was about six seconds behind Terror's best lap Friday night. That Sunday night, the rest of my team got the shock of our lives. We watched as he first knocked four seconds off his run in one try, and then knock off two more seconds in two successive runs to put himself ahead of Terror's lap time and right behind mine. He ended up running a 3:13 on the route offline, while I was at a 3:11.

    So to summarize: with a little help, Jay went from being a total noob to someone seriously quick in less than a week.

    Hello guys, Round 2 starts in next monday.

    So, this marks the first edition of German Rally, a rally which was planned to be included in the previous season. The organisation was planning to include 10 Special Stages, however, the problem is that 10 Special Stages would be 10 tracks and it would be too much, therefore, there will be only 2 tracks instead.
