And it has begun! You have whole week to get your times in, so there better be more participants this time around

and completed by me. this was total fun very similar feeling like i have had on the winters on the iceroads here in real life with an old RWD vehicle.

no big issues on the stages, 1 spin on the 6th stage, everything else was pretty much clean with some corners went too wide ofc, but yeah suprisingly good run, maybe i was too cautios?..but was hell a lot of fun.

Edmene commented on 1 August 2017 at 6:45 pm UTC

done as well, after a awful first stage I was able to reasonably drive the car albeit quite cautious till the end of the event without major incidents. A fun event overall.

Arnvidr commented on 5 August 2017 at 12:07 pm UTC

Me done as well, very cautious driving, not too comfy with either the 70's cars or the Sweden tracks. A few spins here and there, including one fantastic 720, and one reset after I drove off a bridge in stage 4 :p

Satisfied with my result

tuubi commented on 5 August 2017 at 2:05 pm UTC

Considering I spent more time on pause than driving due to various distractions, I did all right. The Stratos was trying very hard to kill me, but I managed to hold on somehow. While Edmene edged past me on the last stage, I'm still surprised and happy I managed to finish even third despite my numerous and constant spins and mistakes.

Sweden is my least favourite venue in this game, but I think I'm going to stick with the Lancia for the season. It's hard to control but tons of fun. I've only driven the Opel in this class before and while it's not a bad car, it's feels very stiff and kinda boring. Also the Lancia sounds better.

My car went flying in Monaco again. I really need a flying car.

Ehvis commented on 7 August 2017 at 9:05 pm UTC

Hmmm, I seem to have forgotten about the first one!

Edmene commented on 8 August 2017 at 9:46 pm UTC

No points for me this time. Because of this

RedfaceMy car went flying in Monaco again.
Nothing like the wonderful Monaco and its tight roads that leads either to rocks or flying through a cliff.

tuubi commented on 9 August 2017 at 1:52 pm UTC

I survived. \o/

I think I even managed to granny a couple of stages without needing to reverse at all! The wet night stage was a nightmare though, especially after destroying my headlights right at the beginning. I got stuck on a bank at one point and reversed over the finish line on that one.

Xpander commented on 9 August 2017 at 5:19 pm UTC

Monaco done by me also. 3 spins in total, 1 with reverse needed. overall pretty clean run.
i would drive stratos also if i hadn't change how the gas pedal works, its the only car that needs different setup for this, im too lazy to switch between when im driving with different cars
