Well at least we are all sorted. It won't happen again now we know you can't use the same league in both games.

Thanks Skully. I've set a nice lazy pace for everyone to beat, obviously I did not do any practice during the off-season.

There's not a lot of moonlight in the night race. I lost my lights about three quarters through, and had to turn off the HUD and cover the green LED on my shifter to be able to make out the road. I was glad when that race was over.

On the night stage I lost half my lights and got a puncture. Sure was dark. Had to reset to track on first and last stage aswell.

Greece done. Had some setup issues at first. Namely first gear was way too short and the car was also sliding a lot. Had to drive first two stages like that, then changed my setup a bit. Enjoyed like always.


SS1: Spin on the hairpin
SS2: Spin on the hairpin
SS3: Clean
SS4: Roll (co-driver said "Don't Cut", I still cut )
SS5: Clean
SS6: Clean

I broke both lights! at the start, there was no way I was going to finish that stage, so I retired. It's so different than Dirt 4 the car breaks really easy, I had forgotten that .

Germany done. Not enjoying the tarmac lots of mistakes. Grass is bad.

SS1: Spin after rear wheels went onto the grass
SS2: Clean
SS3: Clean
SS4: 2 Spins
SS5: Overshoot the Hairpin, reverse needed
SS6: Crashed into the stoneblocks, reverse needed

Finland done, no rehearsing before, crashed a lot in the final 2 stages I had to be more careful or otherwise I wasn't going to finish in one piece, also had 1 puncture. There was 1 stage that I have never ever raced before. Overall great fun, I enjoy the game more when I drive more carelessly and crash a lot, otherwise being tidy is no fun.

Finland done. Enjoyed but the car was extremely unstable with jumps. Lots of fighting with the wheel. 2 of the shorter tracks i was flying like crazy and luckily avoided mistakes.

Summary:
SS1: Spin and small crash into the trees, i think in total 10 sec lost
SS2-SS5: Clean
SS6: Rolled after cutting too much, lost maybe 10 sec
