    @Dirt3 It might have been more than one but yes, I agree - especially when they are standing on the outside of a fast corner. Some spectator placement in this game drives me mad although that might be because I come from the land of Volvo where safety comes first :)
    Thank god for windscreen wipers.

    One day I'll get the hang of Finland. Today is not that day.

    I don't have the Finland dlc yet, considering it ... mulling over it ... Do you guys recommend it?

    @TheGreenYamo No rally this weekend? Feels like I been going cold turkey.

    My Finland result was clearly due to incompetence, but fuck me if the Subaru isn't vastly underpowered in this class. Apparently they're different real world classes, the Evo is "R4" and the WRX is "NR4", whatever that means. Well in DR2 it does mean you lose. I think this class doesn't make much sense, these two cars should be in different classes. Otherwise the NR4 Subaru is just a complete waste of time.

    Sorry for not sorting a championship over the weekend, I'll get one sorted tonight.

    Congrats to Salrip for the previous championship win!

    Just got this last week after realising my G920 hadn't seen any use in a long while and signing up for Game Pass. Absolutely loving it so far.

    Only completed a handful of events but it's already got me hooked. Still on my first car and really not gotten drifting down yet at all, but still having so much fun blasting through the countryside.

    How do I sign up for the EG championships?

    @gamingdave I've accepted your request.

    New championship is base game stuff only, no DLC.

    Group A cars.

    Cheers. I checked the cars and thought I better do some practice in an HF Integrale before stepping up from the Lancia I have been in up to now.

    Sure to say I totalled it pretty quickly :D

    It's a little bit trickier than Sega Rally, the speed is immense. Will enter the champ once I've had a bit more practice!

    The Delta is the fastest but clearly the most difficult car in Group A. I avoid it

    I'm just a fool for the Cosworth.

    The Delta seems to be the most popular group B car, looking at the leaderboards. I thought I'd buy one and give it a try, but it was an unresponsive, floaty death machine. At least the quattro turns in when you ask it to!

    Welcome to the party, Dave! Don't practise too much, I'd like to have some kind of competition for the bottom of the table 🙃

    Promise I won't practice too much (if only I had the time) and I will definitely try out the Cosworth and Audi, as there is no way I am finishing four stages in the Lancia with my current skills

    Oops, I thought you were talking group B. In group A the Delta HF Integrale is pretty good, really like the Subaru, but the Escort is a bit hairy.

    I find that my play has improved (a wee bit) since I changed the view to exclude the steering wheel; less immersive but offers a much better field of vision.

    There seems to be some confusion here. The current EG event is Group A which has the Delta Integrale and the Escort Cosworth. It's not Group B which has the Delta S4 and the Quattro.

    How does the game calculate penalty time for hitting spectators? Is it purely based on speed at impact? My mind drifted on the third stage and missed that a 1 right was coming up meaning I went full speed into some poor guy and got a 33s penalty. Harsh!

    Congrats to Pac who was streets ahead of everyone else in the last championship.

    New one should be online in a few minutes. Group B monsters this time around.

    Had one of them moments when you puncture a tyre and debating if your should change it or try get through the last 2 and a bit sectors.

    Guessing salrip met with the same post or same sector accident.

    Yup, got a double puncture on one side, had one spare but decided to not change at all. I think it was a mistake, not easy to drive a car without wheels on one side :)

    Just picked this up on PC, £12.99 for Super Deluxe was too hard to resist and I wanted to try the McRae dlc. Iíve applied to join the club, can I take part in the Championship stuff or is it PS4 only?
