Thank heavens there is that much time left! I thought I might miss this one. I'll do it sometime once I get home. Sounds like I need to really take care of the car. 

Yeah, Finland is always tricky. The roads are so fast that any crash can be your last.

The ditches on the side of the roads are treacherous. Pay attention to the navigator when calls a turn directly following a dip, crest, or jump. Brakes do not work when the car is in the air. 😁

Well I completed the rally of a thousand Lakes.

My rally was ok my car do you know when a slide too much so I was a bit under steering I know first four stages I was just winning the stages by about 8 seconds I wish but I'm the fifth stage I run that by 2 and a half minutes and also my car was sliding just as I wanted it to say I was real quick on that one and no crashes Beauty

Is a video of Stage 2 in the dark

I won't make the next round. I'm going out of town for the 20-29th and won't have PS4.

@Crawford1872

and anyone else who's thinking of buying DiRT Rally on sale:

The current sale with a price of just £12.49 ends midnight tonight, so if you miss out, you'll probably have to wait quite a few months for another price like that. At least on PS Store.

All done.  Racing in the snow went better than I expected, although I was being very careful.  No real big crashes except for the one right at the end of stage four.  I was coming up to cross what I assumed was the finish line, so I stopped trying to turn the corner.  Turns out it wasn't the finish line and I ended up on my side in the bushes with the actual finish line about 100 yards away.

Only got video of the last stage, so you can all see my ridiculous fuck up.  Also, this stage is intense in vr!  Glad I managed to keep my lights for the whole thing!

Got a lot on my hands this week, so might push the start of Season 2 to next week instead. Same goes for the uploading of results of Season 1.

With all the preparations for the anniversary I've had little time to get this sorted, so I think the best idea is to start the next season at the beginning of February, once the Anniversary has passed.

 

@Crawford1872 If I'm not mistaken, DiRT Rally is on sale on PS Store again, for a pound less than last time even, until the first few days of February! If you get the chance... ;)

My season 1:

Event 1 - Germany

Struggled properly on all stages, plenty of crashes.

Stage 1

Stage 3

 

Event 2 - Wales

I had a pretty abysmal welsh rally due to my gung-ho approach. First two stages saw lots of mistakes and crashes, including an epic rollover on stage 2. I believe stage 4 was the cleanest and fastest of all. Stage 5 was very eventful and there was another epic crash right before the 2nd split. By the end the car sounded absolutely terrible for obvious reasons. :D (timestamps for specific stages are on the YT page)

Video of the entire rally: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHOPp2ZH5RI

 

Event 3 - Finland

 

First 2 stages were filled with massive crashes and I was limping on 2 wheels for most of stage 2 (lost a total of 3 tires, repaired one), which eventually brought about my retirement from the rally on stage 5. Stages 3 & 4 were rather fast and gave hope to climb back, but a blown engine on stage 5 left me at the very bottom of the leaderboard of rally Finland.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

Stage 4              S4 Replay

Stage 5

 

Event 4 - Sweden

Definitely the best rally of the season for me, but not without a fair share of small mistakes.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

Stage 4

 

 

Full season results will follow in the next post and the post after that will come on Monday with all the info on Season 2.

Once I get the spoiler-filled post sorted out (spoilers are a mess, complete P.I.T.A), then you can watch some of the videos and some more videos are coming shortly. You'll pretty much see what it's like.

XDBX League Season 2

https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/leagues/league/102999/xdbx-casual

Vehicle Class: 2010s Rally Cars

Events: 5 (Sweden, Monte Carlo, Finland, Germany, Wales)

 

Event 1 - Rally Sweden (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 2nd - 03:00 UTC Mar 8th

Event 2 - Rally Monte Carlo (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 9th - 03:00 UTC Mar 15th

Event 3 - Rally Finland (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 16th - 03:00 UTC Mar 22nd

Event 4 - Rally Germany (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 23rd - 03:00 UTC Mar 29th

Event 5 - Rally Wales (5 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 30th - 03:00 UTC Apr 5th

 

Season 2 kicks off this Friday in cars from the 2010s. Compared to last season, we have 1 more event (Monte Carlo) and more stages per event (6 in Sweden, Monte Carlo, Finland and Germany, and 5 in Wales). Another thing you can see is that every event/round lasts for precisely 6 days (up from last season's 3-5 days per event), from 3am UTC every Friday to 3am UTC every Thursday, over the course of 5 weeks, with there being a 24hr cool-down period between events. You can save your progress after each stage in every event, so you could do 1 stage per day or divide them differently over the 6 days or do them all at once if you want.

Available cars: Mini Countryman Rally Edition, Ford Fiesta RS Rally, Volkswagen Polo Rally, Hyundai i20 Rally

I recommend trying at least one of these out in a custom championship first, to get an idea of how they drive and don't forget to try out some setup changes as well, depending on the conditions! ;)

Everyone will be allowed to pick a different car for each event during this season if they wish to do so. (In future seasons with the 2010s rally cars everyone might need to pick 1 car for the entire season instead.)

 

I'm also thinking about getting together during some days over the season to play some rallycross together. How about this weekend? @Dodge @Beez @LimeGreenLegend @Road2fury

      Welcome to the first in a series of vehicle based photo contests. This is the brainchild of @Con but I will be be doing the leg work for his ideas. This one's theme is "Nightlife" but don't think that just means clubs and that kind of stuff. It can be anything that involves your car, bike or vehicle and night. Just make sure it looks good and looks like it belongs. A BF Injection is not something you'd take to a 5 star restaurant for example. Photos can be taken with in-game camera or using the editor. Submit them by posting them in this thread and you can post two entries and you can change them anytime before the contest ends (just edit your post and replace the photos).
      Contest ends at end of August. Feel free to ask questions about the theme.

      When creating/exporting the video it soon stops and gives me this error msg:

      I need to see what everyone is doing with the update. Post your pics and stories!
      Did you create the ultimate garage, kick ass dance club, or just a hub for all your business endeavors?
