This is probably my favourite location so I already know the stages fairly well which is nice. :)

I fear a bit more for the rain which I'm sure will make things a bit more difficult.

I've finished the stages. Wales is my favourite rally on the game, so I felt confident throughout and feel I'll probably have my best finish here :)

Can anyone confirm that the conditions are the same on the actual stages as in the info above? ☺

2 countries in a row where the info has been incorrect and I really don't want to practice a lot on a stage to get surprised again. Especially when its so much darkness and rain as in Wales. Cheers.

We can only apologize for these mistakes that's been made. We will make sure this doesn't happen again, we've been lucky the 2 mistakes have been minor and not really something that's made a big difference.

I've checked and everything is correct for this last round.

The problem if one can say of this rally is that the slightest mistake or a deviation from the trajectory can have dramatic consequences see fatal

First 4 stages done and the Lancia is back to normal after the shitfests of Finland and Germany, I think it just doesnt like the faster rallies. Anyway after a shaky start in stage 1 I was quite happy with stages 2-4 just the night time stages to go tomorrow. :)

Doubt I'll get a point but the final 3 sectors of stage 6 were probably my best of the season I only had 1 headlight so left handers were quite difficult but I hit every corner perfectly so I was really pleased with myelf after the nightmares of the last 2 weeks. Should be enough to complete my grand slam against @Erti147. :)

Gotta say that this is probably the worst round for the Ford. I did 3 runs each in the Ford and Lancia on stage 1 and I was 20+ seconds faster in the Lancia (which I've only driven a few times before).

A bit frustrating with such a disadvantage this last round. I'm so satisfied with P4 in the standings which for me feels incredible as the Ford has always been lacking a bit. Now it's looking likely for me to lose a few spots in the standings... :/

Because of the disadvantage here I haven't really practised either, I'll just drive the stages thru, hopefully get some points and see where I end up.

Either way I'm gonna be satisfied with the season both for myself and as a cod for this successful and very competitive season. :)

Really really happy with my final time for the last round after 6 relatively clean & fast paced consistent stages. Certainly made up for the frustration I had in Germany, the Lancia is simply brilliant in Wales... it felt much more predictable and planted in the wet gravel than the previous rallies which gave me the confidence to throw it into most corners at high speed with great success.
Good battle yet again @Banz, I thought you were gonna pass me after doing stage 4 comparisons :nailbiting:... sorry to hear you had issues in the last 2 though man :oops: I'm sure it would have been another real close result between us otherwise.
Now I anxiously wait for that end timer to see if I can maybe just possibly hang on to P1 overall here :wideyed: :dead: (fully prepared for the reigning champ to put me in my place about now) :rofl:

Finished the rally! What can I say? As I've said, just drove thru the stages in one go. Overall went to plan but very annoyed at last stage where I hit some inside thing and ended up on the roof and gliding into some spectators. 15+ seconds lost into that and probably a few positions.... :/ And my first penalty just had to come in the last rally in the last stage! :banghead:

As I've said, annoying end to the season with not being able to compete with my rivals and can just hope it will be enough to keep 4th but it's looking difficult. I will of course either way be happy with the season as I think my driving has been quite good. :) I'm very excited for the next season.

If I'm lucky enough to keep 4th then I'm quite happy I did it in the Escort as the top 3 are so good. Even in a Subaru or Lancia 4th could still maybe have been the maximum and then it's obviously more impressive to have done it in the Escort! :D Really hoping I can keep the position.

Just did my run a couple of hours ago and my Subaru compared to the Lancia is much slower. Only in Pant Mawr Reverse or whatever it's called did I manage to get within 3 seconds of the class leader Banz. The rest was a disaster. I managed to roll twice in the last 2 stages and all I'm hoping is that I can stick to my 7th place in the overall standings..!

As for @RCFloOm 's time with the 1995, I take my hat off to you.
