    @racing_fan I'm OK at Argentina, I tend to come unstuck on the really fast courses. I spent a lot of time crashing into trees in Finland in DR1...

    I've just been looking at the times for Australia on the DR2 Clubs site, Skull Buggery beat Dr. Strangelove on Stage 2 by 0.003 seconds. I don't think I've ever seen a result that close!

    Hello all, I've been really enjoying getting my teeth into this, noticed you's have a tourney going - if there's space and you don't mind, how would I join that and have a go?

    I was happy with that round for a change, been using these tuning setups lately and still only playing it in vr.

    Hmm, I might get home before the Australia event finishes. We had the rally here today, uploaded some clips on youtube if anyone wants to see :) Last year we hade snow by now but not today unfortunately...

    Looking forward to Finland, I found it fun but hard in the last game. I think it's a location where you really can gain time if you know the stage well.

    @daver I've accepted your request. You should be able have a crack at the last event in the latest league.

    I miss going to the Welsh Rally, was a mile or 2 away from some stages but they moved it due to a tree disease that's now threatening the rally again.

    Really curious how Finland will turn out with DR2's physics, they have the greatest impact there. In DR1 pre-patch it felt a little like there was a magnet under your car pulling you to the ground, after the patch it was the opposite and you were flying 30 metres high for most of the stage, the main reason why I didn't like it a lot in DR1. DR2 feels much more balanced, I expect Finland to be more fun than ever now.

    Remember someone in here showing a bugged car in a screenshot, had my front bumper inside the car and quite a put off in vr.

    Finland is live, at least on PC. Will give it a shot right away.

    I'm going to set up another event later. Should I still just use stuff from the base game, or should I add DLC courses? Also, car suggestions are welcome.

    Finland is better than in DR1, but I still don't like it. Started 7 time trials, finished one.

    @DrStrangelove It took me 5 goes to complete one stage in TT in the R5 Fiesta. :D

    First stage in TT was 9 miles, I didn't stand a chance.

    @TheGreenYamo I think it's ok with dlc courses. They are not that expensive so I think it's not unreasonable to expect most people that like the game to have at least some of them? I bought the deluxe edition on sale but the new courses after that I bought separately as I don't really need more cars and rallycross stuff.

    I had Season 1+2 included and paid £3 per course for the rest, just the car classes that are only dlc I can see being an issue.

    Sorry, I've been fairly busy, so haven't had chance to set up a championship year. I'll do that tonight.

    I'll start dropping in season 1&2 courses in if that's ok with everyone?

    I'm open for suggestions for car class, something mental like Group B? or something more sedate like the R2s?

    I'm happy with either of those. I like 4WD up to 2000cc also, if we're doing requests.

    Any 4WD or Group B RWD are my top choices. I'm not too fond of FWD cars in the game.

    I've spent half the day doing a stage in Finland (can't remember the name) in the Lancia delta. It is so satisfying when you're in the zone in Finland and it feels like driving on rails. Unfortunately it rarely last for a whole stage, so there's been plenty of restarts today :)

    I had a few goes in Finland last night, first time playing this in ages. I crashed plenty even driving the mini. Enjoyed it loads.

    Championship is live. Wales, Poland and Monté Carlo, Group A.

    Only 2 days per event. Good luck!

    Loving this.

    Have found it far more accessible than the first game.

    @KD DrStrangelove would probably still beat my times if he was riding a horse.
