DSRL RC: Season 4 Underway NOW!

Post by DSRL McDuff on Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:54 pm



Hey Gang! So here it comes... The DSRL RC: Season4!!!! And it comes with a twist. A one make series, in the venerable 2011 Impreza STi. R4/ GpN spec 4wd struggle bus. Pitting manno a manno on an almost like for like platform.

Why the R4 Impreza you ask? Its the peoples car...... Being that yours truly bashed spanners on a Teg Sport R4 Impreza N11 that regularly beat Elfyn Evans in his Pirelli Backed Teg Sport N11 STi I felt, in honour of Elfyns WRC Rally GB win it was a fitting choice AND the mighty Porkhammer hates it and can't figure out how to make it go quickly, well it might be the one for us mere mortals then eh?

Also THE POWER STAGE RETURNS!!!!! Yup, the win it or bin it stage makes its return, so bonus points for those who bother to upload their efforts and submit their time cards as per the rules chaps Wink As will the testing night rally, thanks to its successful running in Germany back in season 2.

Sign ups will be opened by Friday late PM at the latest with a view to round 1, Stage 1 opening on Thursday 9th November.

Now the kicker.... be prepared for rolling penalty points. Sign up and don't compete? That's a paddlin! Miss a round without prior notification? That's a paddlin.

Hope everyone's ready to dig in and tough it out in this gloves off automotive pugilistic pounding of the Dirt Rally stages!

See you all for a pie and a pint after scrutineering  DSRL McDuff 🐘

Nice Pete! you won't regret it. The pure driving feel in Dirt Rally is more satisfying than any other racing title in my opinion, you feel so connected to most cars in the game once learning the surface tendencies in detail a little more. You can certainly tell Dirt Rally was designed around FFB wheels with its input smoothness, while Dirt 4 is noticeably designed for controller players being very twitchy and erratic on the wheel for many cars unfortunately. You might still need some time to get the FFB feeling how you want in Dirt rally though as its way too crazy on default.

Below are the rules posted in the previous Season 3 signup page, just to get an idea about some of the basics... These will change again to be updated for Season 4 though and Mcduff will also be adding a few more rules in to do with participation/ power stage. You'll be able to find out more in the Season 4 signup coming soon.The key thing is to have a Racenet account set up (it should walk you through that when you first play), that way you can request to join the DSRL RC Racenet league and be eligible to register for the championship on here.


Event & Championship Rules Season 3:


Event restart- NO
Stage retry- NO
Owned vehicles- NO
Vehicle Tuning- YES
Career engineers- NO


Points allocation per round:

1st- 25 points
2nd-21 points
3rd-18 points
4th-14 points
5th-12 points
6th-10 points
7th- 9 points
8th- 8 points
9th- 7 points
10th-6 points
11th-5 points
12th-4 points
13th-3 points
14th-2 points
15th-1 point

*Finishers below 15th or any event DNFs will not receive championship points.

*This championship will be hosted and organized through Codemaster's Racenet, so an active account is required to enter. The sign up for This account should have been created when you first played the game and it can be accessed through the Xbox browser under the "leagues" tab. It is advised you become familiar with navigating the site and league area if you haven't looked at it yet.

*PLEASE take a screen shot of your final event finish times. You are encouraged to post your Final time screenshot in The DSRL Xbox club activity feed, along with a brief description of your Rally if you choose!


*Racenet may show a 7th round at Pikes Peak, this is not part of the official championship. It is merely to add a cool down period and allow admin to collate all the info from rounds 1-6.

*As there is no way of the league hosts directly controlling settings such as assists, views, HUD etc. in Dirt Rally, these will be down to player personal preference.

*Once the championship starts, car choice cannot be changed.

*Number of signups is unlimited and registration will remain open to new entries throughout the season.

*We expect any sign ups to participate in all scheduled rallies as they are each going to be live for a whole week. If you know you are going to miss an entire scheduled round we would ask that you message a DSRL admin/organizer and let them know beforehand.

*Existing DSRL RC Racenet members from previous seasons must sign up for the current active season in order for any rally times/ points to be counted towards the championship.


**Organizers may be required to force a regulation change at any point in the season if there are unforeseen issues with the championship format, this is unlikely but will be made clear to all who sign up if it is necessary.

Hammer I accidentally deleted your last post sorry.
Hey it dusted off and throw some stage miles in mate! Personally I much prefer DR to Dirt 4, much to the scorn of the general gaming internet public, but Dirt rally makes you feel like a legend when you nail it!!’

No worries mate..

My impression from the early reports of D4 was that it was a much better overall package but then that kind of started to change and I held fire on buying basically because I had never got going on DR and thought I should get some miles in on that before laying out for the next one. I'll keep my eye on this area and try to get some miles on the clock before it starts.

Sounds good Rob... but don't expect points from this side of the team.. I've still barely played the game so have along way to go to get a handle on it.

Can I ask how exactly this works as i've never raced anything like this before. I see that you get just the one shot at it and there are multiple stages to each round so do they have to be completed in one sitting or can you save progress between stages and come back later?

Hey hammer. You will be able to save your progress after stage 2 and stage 4. The last three stages will include the power stage and two full stages then rally final checkpoint Wink

Are normal real rally "days" or weekends broken up into 7 races? I have not been fortunate enough to see a whole rally on TV. You can call my team: The Road Racers

WRC rallies take place over 4 days (give or take) and the cars will stop once or twice a day for a timed service. Cars can also be repaired at the roadside at some interjunctions but only by the crew and only using parts carried in car.
We did try a full on brutal rally before but it was too much for most folks as it took too big a slice out of their week.
To be fair, it was proper brutal!

I bet it was. There is a repair while driving option in the game, no?

In stage you can repair 1 puncture per stage, vehicle repairs only occur at service halts buddy.
