    Thumbs up Repost: Dirt Rally Summer League Roadbook 1 - Argentina Starts July 8

    Roadbook #1
    So here we are, finally, less than 24 hrs before the first ‘Champion Motorsports’ hosted DR2.0 championship starts in his first season.
    The season kicks off at Argentina, the most bumpy and dusty location the game has to offer. Each of the current 40 competitors awaits 12 stages through the hills and along canyons. The weather-forecast sees a dry period for the 10-day lasting event (08.07. 1pm CET – 17.07. 11pm CET). Some stages will be held throughout nighttime but tyre management should be quite easy in this first event of the championship.
    As mentioned above, there are currently 40 club members in our championship-club. But anyone can join the season at any point of the championship – so please share and make sure all your friends know about it ( https://dirtrally2.com/clubs/club/183582 ). I know some of the names already from past championships held in DiRT4 or Dirt Rally but surely there won’t be any names, of whom I think he might be good for the win, as I definitely don’t know all the guys. All I know for sure is, that to finish first you have to finish first.
    Any recaps or screenshots from every competitor are welcome all the time, wherever you follow our championship or even take part of the discussion here in this thread


    Feel free to ask if anything is unclear and please mind the rules (https://cmsracing.com/champion/forum...ment-amp-Rules )


    A good & successful start into season one to all of you – stay calm and have fun, this is our hobby!

    I saw Torbjørn in the river bed and decided to jump in there with him...

    I was feeling really good on this rally, just a bit slow and rusty.

    I did have some lighting issues, the first part of this stage where it is fast was really sketchy.

    But ultimately was feeling like I was flowing well. Unfortunately it only takes one moment of lapsed concentration, you miss one one call and...

    With about 4 days remaining in Argentina we have seen 31 drivers begin the rally and 24 at the completion phase!!!! What great turnout -- let's keep it coming.

    My rally went from okay to not okay quite fast and early. I am no big fan of Argentina in the game, the roads does not suit my driving that well. So I hoped to go slow and smooth through the event to grab a few points for the championship.
    It did not turn out that way, as I was too late on the brakes before one of the bridges, and slid off the road. There were no damage to the car, but the game deemed it unrecoverable, and that was it. DNF and 0 points from Argentina. It can only go uphill from here, even though we're at the highest altitude event of the championship

    Roy that particular bridge caused a lot of havoc this event. To your point, only up from here.

    Well that was my return to CMS-rally events here with the amazing Dirt Rally 2!!
    With a temporary 8'th place currently, I'm not totally out of it. I was anticipating not being near the top. Lots of mistakes and trouble on several stages put me back.
    So I think lack of experience with the Catamarca province put me at least 50 sec back.

    Default Review of Event 1 - Argentina

    Last Wednesday the kick-off event of our first DiRT RALLY 2.0 championship, which was held at Argentina, finished. Time to make a review and get some words on it before the official results come out

    Of course there is a winner and also most people already know who it is. Of course will he be named and celebrated here. Of course will that be done at the end – as we try to name most (or even all) of the competitors and make all those, who didn’t take part this time, want to take part from now on as there is enough tension at all levels of performance and it’s not only the win, that counts. Now let’s start taking a view at the event more detailed…

    People that didn’t see the finish
    37 cars rolled out for the start and already 6 didn’t see the finish of stage 1 Four of them are known to the author as they appear here in the forums: Magnar (who is freakin fast but struggles with PC problems ever since there is Dirt Rally), Xsaros & Torwith (Fast guys but wait, wasn’t there a bridge…) and RallyManic1964. Kitakaze and pearlo81 complete the list of DNF’s for stage 1.
    On stage 2 only Russelcubs joined the group before the drivers calmed down until stage 6, when Huillaprima forced forum-members svt4cam and Roy Magnes to their knees. Biggest surprise was the DNF of Galvalao, member of esports team A-Sport, as he led the event by nearly 18s after the previous stage and winning the first five stages. So we should attest him that he always drove at the limits – great drive so far mate!
    San Isidro saw all starters finish before Ledesma set a DNF on stage 8 and CHAM, previously placed on P4 overall, didn’t even start this stage. Ralf_mol and man-of-results enamel weren’t able to see the finish the following stage. Two more guys got lost on the 11th stage, Miraflores. Paiven from A-Sport, who had one stage win at stage 8, wasn’t able to set a time and jak2755 had a DNF caused by whatever.

    As max. 20 people can score points per event, there was one unlucky guy to not score beside the ones that didn’t make it to the finish. Vracer1 finished on P21 and despite the fact that he was placed near the end of the tables throughout the whole rally, he managed to finish this challenging event and didn’t retire caused by lost motivation or whatever before the last stage was completed – respect mate!!! That’s the spirit we want to see
    On P20 cypheus earns 1 point, so do Kinggene on P19, Andre1986 on P18 and CMS-admin davidantx on P17. Infected Harpy, Zekeemo and brian_paterson on positions 16 to 14 earned 2 points each and one point more went to Bleifussler, christoph1954 and that_guy.
    Let’s take a look at the top 10: Crazymotors finished on a solid 10th place. His best stage seems to be stage 9 where he finished 6th on his Ford Fiesta . On P9 we see Rallye_Co_Pilot_87 on a Peugeot 208. His highest finish was a strong P5 on stage 7. He lost a possible P8 overall on the very last stage where d69_inge finishes. So Dag’s return to the DiRT series can be seen as a success as he got a P6 on stage 10 as his best result throughout the event. P7 is where Walter Röhrl finishes, as Dag driving a VW Polo, after a solid P5 on stage 11. Wolfsmind on P6 drives a Mitsubishi Space Star, which gave him an impressive P4 on the 10th stage. Overall fifth finishes Lauris_A who drove a VW Polo. Lauris’ highest finish is an awesome P4 on stage 11. Glenowan on P4 finished P4 twice throughout the event (stages 9 and 12). He misses the podium by 2mins.

    The top 3 get completed by Codemasters-forums bugfinder Riggs from A-Sport on P3. Just 16s behind P1 after 43mins of racing isn’t that much! Riggs got one stage win and finishes about 9s behind his team mate, Bombast1k on P2. Both drive a Fiesta which lead Bombast1k to fantastic 5 stage-wins in Argentina. And even though “only” 50% of team A-Sports saw the finish, both finishers went straight to the podium!

    And all those who counted the above mentioned stage-wins so far may ask themselves, if we had more than 12 stages in the argentinian event? Not really boys, not really! So the overall win goes to the Skoda Fabia driving guy with a very high efficiency and constant high performance without winning a single stage! He finished 2nd or 3rd on 11 of 12 stages and entered P1 overall after stage 6 where he stayed until the finish. His lead went down to 2,7s after stage 9 but he seems to have strong nerves as he build a distance of 7,28s to his following rival… Congrats 1KorteX1 !!! Well deserved win mate!!!!!

    Last but not least a quick look at the stats for this event:
    Stage wins go 100% to team A-Sport (Galvalao and Bombast1k 5 each, Paiven and Riggs 1 each). 37 Drivers entered but only 21 finished which results in a completion rate of 56,76%

    The manufacturers appeared as follows:
    Ford: 16 (43%)
    Volkswagen: 8 (22%)
    Skoda: 5 (14%)
    Mitsubishi: 3 (8%)
    Peugeot: 3 (8%)
    Citroen: 2 (5%)
