power stage @36:12
finished my run. Not the best rally with 2 reset penalties in there and some other offs, but made it to the end alive which is always a great feeling after doing all those brutal Greek stages. I felt I could have been quite close to the provisional lead without the stupid mistakes but @Laitsu was very solid and kept a comfortable gap to the end with an awesome drive.

Quick question - does running shorter gears make the car quicker?

I use always short gears. I can handle that Peugeot much better that way.

yeah I usually do it when cars are bogging down or not getting near redline in their top gear. It helps with getting the power down quicker.

Just completed the first 4 stages and amazingly I'm still in it lol. Tough stages all but so far my car is in good shape. Admittedly my rallying is more like a tourist drive around the Greek mountains but hey I'm still hanging around just outside the to ten haha.

I'll finish tomorrow Very Happy

Does anyone know if there's an option on the Racenet site that will show DNFs on the overall standings?

I am pretty certain it only displays event DNFs in the form of extreme time loss on the stage of their crash. if you go to stage 2 of this round for example, it shows 2 DNFs at the bottom with massive time gaps (usually 25-30 minutes) to the rest of the field above, indicating they've had terminal damage or an unrecoverable car as they went over the maximum time limit for completing that stage.

Did some drivers just give up after stage 4? Points are awarded to top 15. Hope everyone tries to finish the event.

I never give up.. I might trail home a day adrift but I'll never quit. I have only completed the first 4 stages so far but will get the others in the book tonight.

Done.

That was fun. I almost didn't even start the rally but thanks to Toast for reminding me the rally ends at 22:30 and not midnight.

In the end I prioritised repairs over any sort of half decent time to make sure I finished the first round of the season. A lot of radiator damage and lost a bit of power from the engine but no punctures or smashed lights during the night stages.

The transition from morning/mid day/evening/night was cool.

Congrats @Laitsu Great performance buddy.

Really enjoyed getting back into Dirt Rally again. A really poor final quarter of the 6th stage killed any chance I had of a better finish but I am just pleased to make it through to the end. Car was pretty good damage wise, not too many car crunching incidents.

Finished just 13 seconds adrift of Zero, a 13 second penalty and getting stuck briefly at one of the hairpins putting paid to my chance of moving up a place.

Great fun and looking forward to the next stage.
