    This is a recurring "single-day" series that is started and finished in the span of 1 - 1½ hours.


    This is not a time trial or 'stages' event but an all out race event with battles for position and all drivers on track.

    The races vary in length and weather, from dry day-time and night-time to rain, dirt and snow.

    A five-minute qualifying session is held before each race regardless of track length.
    If a full lap is not completed the driver with the longest distance driven is awarded pole position and the rest of
    the grid according to total distance travelled.
    (thank you @jammy21)


    AVAILABLE CARS

    I'm interested. Can I use same car in all 5 races? Or do you have to use all 5 cars (one car in one race)?
    I like to use C4.

    This looks good. I thought about hosting similarly set-up championships. Just need to figure out whether to drive the Suzuki or Toyota. Otherwise, can't wait! :tup:

    Kiitos jammy.
    For this first time I'm going for simplicity, so you race with the same car in all five races.
    But if we do this again it could be very interesting to be forced to use all five cars. That would really show who has the absolute most driving talent and versatility. :tup:

    Thanks Dino. I've been meaning to start a 'Rally Mini-championship' for a while. But because I mostly follow F1, MotoGP and Nascar the Rally hobby has always been a distant fourth.
    There is something pure about Rallying though, something extraordinary.

    I remember when Gilles Panizzi was still active in the WRC. His onboard footage was always entertaining to watch because he had this incredible stare and intense focus in his eyes.
    Same with Grönholm.

    I haven't really played any Rally games since Colin McRae Rally on PS1, but that was a game I played to death. It was so good.


    Yes I'd rather do these quick championships than to plan ahead for multiple weeks or multiple months and have a long schedule of races.
    I might go with the Toyota simply because it could be considered the underdog of the bunch. :)
    Don't know if I'm right about that though.
    Me too.

    As I mentioned in the first post I'm hoping to do this many times so you'll get plenty more opportunities.


    Some of us met up for a few practice races yesterday. It was brilliant stuff and I wonder why I have waited so long
    to get involved in Rally again. It's so much fun and the experience is like none other.
    To drive behind Smiley and If in the dirt at Toscana was thrilling. :)
    Yes, we went there even though the track isn't included in this little championship.

    And even though we won't go to Toscana in this championship I have to share this one;

    Great Aaroh, really nice. :)

    Even though I haven't driven it more than ~ 150km I can recommend the Subaru. Very good handling.
    It's Smiley's choice too.

    I don't know if I can make it for all the races Jocke, but if you don't mind the possibility of me maybe skipping a couple (and I'm around of course), I'd like to give it a try.

    I'm thinking of maybe the Suzuki, since that doesn't seem very popular at the moment. And it's yellow.

    It's fine If, you're not required to participate in all five races.

    Let's move it forward an hour bb, so you won't have to break any traffic laws. :)

    It will help Gavin too so let's start at 4pm eastern and 9pm GMT.

    We might miss the first Mini race or two though. Hopefully not.

    When race host is from neighboring country it usually means better race times (still 9pm GMT is latest for me to start race during the week).
