Hey all! This is the place to discuss how your rally went, and general discussion about the league/event.

Since this is round 1, make sure you give the League Info and League Rules a quick glance, even if your returning from last season as we have a few new rules implemented and a few changes from last season. The main difference is the new Power Stages feature, which you can read about below

1. ● Power Stages:
This season we'll be introducing Power Stages into the Rally format. Power Stages will function like they do in WRC, the last stage of each rally will server a secondary purpose aside from being a normal stage. On top of it's normal function the top 5 of that stage will receive the following points:
  1. 5 Points
  2. 4 Points
  3. 3 Points
  4. 2 Points
  5. 1 Points
These points will count towards the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship standings.
Other changes include an increase of stages from 6 to 8 per rally, and an event restart will be allowed for all drivers to cater for hardware failure and the like.

With that, lets get onto the first stage (y)

Maybe a silly question, but if I start with the first stage...do I have to do all 8 at once or can I spread this between different days?

@neonostra Every two stages (so before Stage 3, 5 etc) There will be a service break which you can use as a break (so you can quit the game without losing your progress in the rally).

Did mine last night right after it opened. So much F****ing fog :dead:, brutal!
Crashed a couple times early on when the visibility dropped to near nothing but the rain/ clear stages felt decent enough to possibly make some ground back up. Power stage was quite clean but a little too much on the cautious side to be right up there I think, here is the on board of my run:

not expecting much of a result from this round unless many other drivers run into fog trouble too. Just hope it doesn't become a resetfest tbh, should really be a DSQ for anyone who puts in a final event time and then re runs all the stages to gain an unfair advantage over opponents and put in a better time. No excuse for that at least imo.

I seem to be able to access 'clubs' in game if I keep spamming it after the racenet error message pops up, it lets me in every 20 or so tries and then acts fine from there :unsure:. Trying to access on my computer though, I get this error every time I try log in

Ok, that strange :unsure:.
Im able to login to the website, but im not able to get any result when i click on a clubs event. It only shows a empty list.
But a the moment it seems like it works as it should here.

Those pace toes seem distracting if anything to me.When you are being told what is happening in 4 corners climb it must be quite confusing,at least at first.

If you mean pace notes then yeah I probably should have adjusted them for Spain so they were said a bit later, completely forgot. That could have helped some in the fog too damn :banghead:. Think how I have them now is for Michigan so its a few corners ahead. Better early than late for pace notes though!

Pace notes in spain are bare awful tbh. Some corners are 1 if not 2 levels too low. (We all know that "Right 3" in the hills)
