Well it was WET , Muddy , and the diches where deep, they swallowed a lot of rally cars but a great rally
The rally was won by a 997 GT3 Cup car driven by a local guy
I was pretty far back not willing to risk the car just wanted some seat time
There is 1 more rally in November in Belgium I will enter hopefully it will be dry

Jim, I've really enjoyed your thread here & love rallies (although I've only done tsd & that's all I probably ever will do). This car seems to be with out a roll cage & I see the van seems to be painted in the same colour... any more photos? What's the back story?

Within the next week it will be road legal in the UK and then a couple more weeks to get its competition MSA log book then go rallying and retire the RS200 which I use now see photo
I've only driven the RS200 on my "Dirt Rally" Playstation4, but WOW! I can't believe you own one!

Default New Season

Hi All
Just got the RS200 back from the workshop going testing the next 2 weekends, then it should be ready for the TAC rally in Belgium in April, then to Austria then Goodwood Festival of Speed Then Eifel rally in Germany all in July ,hopefully by then the Group B A2 Audi Quattro should be ready to go Spain and Italy
The Porsche 996 GT3 Cup Rally car is out on the Hannut Rally in Belgium in March and if it goes well I will do a full season in Belgium with a new Belgium Co-driver
