DiRT Rally GOL League - Group B Season

EhvisThe notable feature of Germany is not the tarmac. It's the bloody rocks!

Rocks are not on the road You should drive on the tarmac not on the grass

A rear wheel drive is no fun in Germany, so I picked a 4WD car at random and did okayish. Except for the disastrous fourth stage.

Edmene commented on 26 June 2017 at 9:25 pm UTC

As in all previous events the right back tire has suffered a puncture more than one time. Something tells me that I need to change my driving style

Xpander commented on 27 June 2017 at 6:03 pm UTC

I just don't like tarmac at all

first stage: spin and crash into the stones with reversing needed
second stage: crash into the stones, cutting too inside of the hairpin with people standing in +15 sec, spin
third stage: adventures on the grass
fourth stage: crash into the stones with reversing needed and spin on the grass
fifth stage: first clean stage, a bit slow driving though.
sixth stage: smaller spin and some adventures to the grasslands

I think Sigz will beat me in this one, maybe someone else also who might enjoy driving on tarmac

I also missed some corners, one in each two first stages, and I went slow in other stages because I had enought time.
Group B cars have very bad brakes, they are not suited for slow stages like germany, you take speed very fast but you can't brake fast.

So, Germany completed also. Last Event of the season starts in about 10 hours.
Greece, Where small mistake can be a big one

First post updated

Well, Greece was utter garbage for me. Got fairly nice times in the long tracks but when I got to the first short I crashed and burned at an easy corner and lost all confidence (which really sucks, because the Manta needs the second gear and confidence to drive) so I promptly fucked up all the short tracks. Really demoralizing.

1st stage went good. second long one went down the hill and got puncture also, in about 40% of the track to drive. next ones went good, last one had a puncture after hitting a rock in the final sector, made a spin also.

recorded video also, need to edit and upload it


Xpander commented on 2 July 2017 at 1:38 pm UTC

so, after this is finished. i decided to create another one since it does seem that popularity is still quite good for those. Group A is next.
