Going to make a small rule regarding the looks of the cars. As far as I know, Off-Road tyres don't make a performance impact on the Comet. As they are purely a cosmetic choice I'm going to ban them from the cars as I think they ruin the racing looks. Plus it's a track based series, no off road sections at all! :D

Any colour you want although you can work with your team mates and go for a similar colour scheme.

I can go with Meinmacht (1st preference), 80's Gamer or Auto Exotic for the livery as they go nicely with Dew Yellow and Light Blue.  Globe Oil and Wewang don't look too bad either as the red is placed in good positions.  Although I assume the exact colours can be sorted out once we get the teams listed, @Squirrel?

Colour of your car is down to the individual driver. The teams don't need to have the same colours.

Best to choose the team with your preferred livery before they all go. Remember that only the top two drivers will score points for the team. I'll make sure the other non crew participants are aware of the team selection.

Another White, Blue and Yellow car. Definitely a popular choice :D

Wonder how your sponsors feel about you posing in front of advertising for two rival teams?

They're quite happy about it.  Like you said, we're "in front" of the other teams.  A sign of things to come, perhaps. :D

I'm thinking you may want a team where you can represent the red of the Welsh Dragon. Wiwang looks like it could be a great sponsor. I'm sure you and @Lann will give those Retro Racers a run for the money. 

Alright, I'll join Wiwang :)

Great news, welcome to the team!

I did paint my car white with a dark (racing) green as secondary. We got plenty of time to decide on details like that.. this is what it looks like now.

After reading the comments from the shoutbox last night there is a potential game mechanic which is going to cause a bit of controversy. 

This of course is kerb boosting. Unfortunately the way the game is coded it is faster to drive on the kerbs than it is on the road. 

From what I can gather, no one likes kerb boosting but they see it as a necessary evil to be competitive especially in non-contact racing. 

I would like to outlaw kerb boosting for this championship. It's not within the spirit of the game and the potential arguments it can cause can cause unnecessary rifts within the crew.

Two points need to be addressed. Firstly, how do you define what is a kerb boost and what isn't?

Obviously weaving on the red and white strips while driving on a straight is clearly boosting. However using kerbs on the apex and exits of corners isn't, although you are still gaining a slight speed and grip advantage you are taking the racing line of the corner. Then you have the grey line in between both types of kerb use.

Is putting two wheels on a kerb while getting ready for a turn counted as a boost? Is maintaining your trajectory after exiting a corner actively seeking a boost?

This brings me onto the second point. How do we identify a boost and what do we do about it for this championship. 

I'd like as many of us to be recording the races as possible, this is both good for using the footage for promotional material as well as sorting out any potential issues. 

If you see someone apparently kerb boosting we can assign a few people not competing in the championship as an independent stewards panel. They can review the footage and decide if it was actively seeking a boost to gain advantage or just maintaining the racing line. 

If anyone is found to be actively seeking a boost then for the first offense they will be issued a warning about it. 

Second and subsequent instances will be punished by a 5 place position drop in the results applied after the race. 

The same panel can also be used to judge any collisions between drivers which need a review. Action on those incidents will be decided by the panel depending on the severity. 

I don't think kerb boosting will be an issue in the championship as long as we are all aware it's forbidden. We are all very good at keeping within the rules of the game and it will make the championship fair for all competing.

If you are only allowed to drive on kurbs if its in your racing line on a turn I don't think we will see any issues. It obviously needs to be known. :)

Policing the kerb boosting will be tough, I have been accused of it before when just clipping the apex on corners, some people 'get away with it' hugging the outside kerb a little too long on the exit of a corner, luckily though the real abusers are pretty obvious as they weave down a straight molesting the rumble strip.

I am all for trying to stamp it out though and I am pretty sure the majority will be too. I would emphasise as often as possible in your promotion and before races that you consider it cheating and it will not be tolerated and hopefully it will disappear.

Don't think it is a big issue, we were just messing about last night really but the scale of the tracks did make me worried for the number of cars on them, we're doing Qualifying so will know what lap times are being had previously so if anyone is taking the piss it will show.

I think calling it cheating is a bit strong, I mean, if the creator hasn't done anything about it...

Lots of people just play whatever is put in front of them, whether it be wide open flat races with boosting for 90% of the lap, or wall-riding every corner because the barriers allow it.

It's gonna be tough to avoid the kerbs to be honest. Last night I was doing it deliberately to point out the issues, but a lot of the time I hit them without trying, it's just the line I happen to be taking.

I think I'll give up my spot to someone else, don't wanna spend cash I haven't got on a car that I'll never use only to get people bitching about cheating and stuff :)

I'll probably watch some streams though.

I don't think we can compare qualifying fastest laps to race fastest laps. If you remember the endurance race on Braddock Pass by the time we had all been running it for 24 game hours we knew the track well and improved massively over the one flying lap qualifying we did. 

The tracks we're using are wider than that track too on the most part without the dangerous falls to either side. In that race with lagging drivers there was only one incident of one car badly taking someone out. I think we will be fine, the first couple of laps we'll have to be cautious but as the field starts to spread it should make it easier.

Fair point there I guess, still think the time sheets will help show anything obvious though cause there's not a massive amount of time you can really improve over those laps on these tracks imo, there's not a lot too them in that sense, only difference will be becoming more comfortable with the car, hoping the fact that we're in order properly after a quail will mean less of a problem with cars getting stuck behind a slower one anyways but I'd say join us @DavidCore89, the racing will be more interesting with you being up there anyways imo.

Decision to enter is down to you either way you decide to go.

As for the kerb boosting I think it's best that we know where we stand before going into the championship. It's the same with races set to GTA for pitlane access only just because there's a game feature available to use doesn't mean we should. 

Deliberate kerb boosting is pretty obvious and I'm definitely not wanting people to avoid the kerbs completely as they do form part of the racing line on all the tracks. With the video capture and independent panel reviewing it then any issues can be sorted out fairly.

DC, it would be good to have your input on the worst areas of the tracks for gaining an advantage using it. It will be useful for people to know what they should and shouldn't do.

I don't curb boost intentionally, not because I am against it but because when I try do to it, it's counter productive. Either I lose speed by skimming the fence, backing off throttle so I don't crash or just crash. If I raced everyday I might master it but at my level I'm better off not risking it.

I just stick to the line. If the line makes me curb boost at the exit of a turn, so be it. Same for the apex.

if dc doesn't want to take part I vote we make him/ask him to be the chief steward instead :D

Same here, includes the inside of corners, won't be deliberately relocating the posts around México but it will happen ;)

      A race I made ages ago for use in the snow, recently updated.
      P2P downhill from the Observatory to LSIA in Golf Cart.
      To ensure customs are off and only the Golf Cart can be picked, switch classes to sports, turn customs off then switch back to utility.
      I wouldn't really recomend doing this in sports, they will probably be too fast for some of the jumps. The sports option is there purely to get around the bug that does not let us properly lock races to a single vehicle

      [ DiRT Rally is on sale on the UK/EU PS Store for £12.49 until December 23! ]
       
      "DiRT Rally is the most authentic, challenging and thrilling rally game ever made, road-tested over 80 million miles by the DiRT community. It captures the essence of what makes rally unique like no other game: that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge; trying to remain in control of your emotions as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
      It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.
      The first time you play DiRT Rally may be a little daunting. Not many drivers finish their first race without a crash, and even fewer will win their first event. The game is designed from the ground up to be an authentic simulation of real world rally. The good news for you is, real world driving techniques are applicable to every section of every stage in the game.
      A better understanding of rally driving techniques will lead you to become naturally faster as you gain confidence and understanding of the car you are driving and the surfaces that you are driving on. It is much easier to add speed to a good technique."
      Couldn't have said it better myself. Long story short: DiRT Rallly is probably the best rally racing simulation game out there. Brilliant mechanics and physics, beautiful graphics, great collection of iconic rally cars of past and present, plenty of different locations and game modes. Even the best racers can often make mistakes in rally and that's the beauty of the sport.
       
      Available Rally Types:
      Rally
      Hillclimb
      Rallycross
       
      Game Modes:
      Championships (SP career)
      "Start out at the bottom and work your way to the top of the rally world. Hire a crew chief and engineers to build your competitive edge as you race the most iconic cars from rally history across the rally, hillclimb and rallycross disciplines."
       
      Online Events
      "Take on the DiRT Rally community via Daily, Weekly and Monthly RaceNet challenges to earn in-game currency rewards or take to the track in online multiplayer rallycross races."
      The online challenges are a great way to try out different vehicles in different locations and in different conditions.
       
      Leagues
      "Get together with friends and run your very own racing league, or join an existing one within the vibrant DiRT Rally community. You can join as many leagues as you like and they are fully customisable all the way down to the weather conditions."
      This is the mode we could make the most use of on the crew scale, organise crew rally championships.
      XDBX DiRT Rally League: https://www.dirtgame.com/leagues/league/102999/xdbx-casual
       
       
      Locations: Monaco, Wales, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Greece, England (RX), Norway (RX), USA (Hillclimb)
       
      Some iconic cars from the game: Mini Cooper S, Renault Alpine A110, Ford Escort MK II, Lancia Stratos, Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500, Audi Sport quattro Rallye, Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2, Subaru Impreza 2001, Ford Focus RS Rally 2001, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, Volkswagen Polo Rally (2010s), Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak, Audi Sport quattro S1 PP
       
      Some official hints and tips for the game: https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/about#hints_tips
      The only thing I personally kind of dislike about the game is that you can't drive a specific rally car unless you've purchased it and that process can take a lot of time and trial & error, because earning money is rather slow in the beginning and you don't really know which car suits you best until you've bought them and tried them out. It's a very small issue overall, though.
       
      Verdict: DiRT Rally is a must-have for any true rally fan and rally simulation enthusiast, but if you're a casual gamer and/or mainly an arcade racer just looking to try out rally racing for a change, you should look into getting DiRT 4 instead. There is nothing arcade-y about this DiRT game - it's all about simulating the real thing.
       
      I'm already running an XDBX league in DiRT Rally, so if you have the game, do let me know! Skill level doesn't matter at all, just looking at having a fun time together!
       
       
      Here's a taste of what the game is like:
