Realish Racing Championship 3 - Debrief

Postby camp_bell » 06 Nov 2020, 22:45

Once again, many thanks to everyone who took part in Realish Rally Championship 3, I hope you all enjoyed it! This is a thread for congratulations, feedback, etc.

Due to continued strong interest, we will run Realish Rally Championship 4 on Dirt Rally 2.0 in the New Year and that's where I want you (or at least your ideas). Which cars do you want to run next season? It's just an advisory vote, but it'll give me an idea of what's popular and what people want to do next. Please elaborate on your response if you wish as well as any other feedback and/or suggestions for the future.

R5 is the most diverse and competitively-balanced class in the game, and the cars are also fairly easy to drive so that's my pick.

I guess you'll be taking suggestions on the format too?

Fun championship and thanks to the organisers. It's a pity it didn't end up as competitive as the pace of the drivers would suggest, on pace I'm not sure I had any right winning Finland, Scotland or Wales, so it should have been much closer at the top.

For future cars again I'll drive anything although have a preference for older and more characterful stuff, especially anything with a proper manual with clutch gearbox. Depending on the class it might also be nice to drop the same car rule for teams, so I could potentially take something interesting without hampering Mark S. Even better make it a 'history of rally' championship starting in the 60s and moving forward in the hope that peoples different strengths will mix the results up.

Format wise, again what we have works but variety is the spice of life so I'm in favour of anything which mixes it up; 12 stages with no service, all tarmac Monte legs, at the end of the championship the points just set out a grid for a rallycross race and whoever wins takes the championship, any and all mad ideas.

Ooh I really like the sound of that!

One thing I didn't like was that each event was a different "Championship" within the DR2 Clubs system.

It would be nice if all events were part of the same Championship so that you have a countdown in-game for everything. Even if you're not using the in-game scoring system it's nice to have everything already set up. Does mean you need to pick all the Stages beforehand but that's not a big issue really, transparency is a good thing :)

Each event running for 14 days feels about right, that's what we typically did for Solberg World Cup.

Yeah that's a holdover from how April organised the first rally championship on DR1, which I carried over with a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" view.

I'll investigate all the options further over the winter, especially if we're going to be more creative with the format.

For the official club I set everything up in March and it’s running for a year.

4 months of Group A
4 months of 2000cc
4 months of R5

Once I set it it just runs itself :)

Having slightly longer to do the rally would be nice - 14 days sounds like a good amount of time. I found it a bit rushed as I'd be practicing for the Sunday night races, doing my iRacing and trying to cram DR2.0 in there somewhere too.

Report from the season including final championship standings

First of all, a big thanks to everyone who took part this season. I for one thoroughly enjoyed it. I really like Dirt Rally 2.0 and these cars are the iconic rally cars in my mind, so after the success of last season it was always on the cards. Getting on the podium at Scotland was the obvious highlight of my season but even more satisfying was the fact that I managed to get significantly closer to the pace over the season (crashing out of 4th place at Monaco notwithstanding).

Congratulations to @BlueSpearman on his dominant championship win, and also to Team Mark (aka Bad Pun Racing) for an equally dominant teams championship win. As I said previously, a devastating combination of speed and consistency. A shout out to @PJTierney and @supernicebob, who came in and were instantly competitive.

Many thanks for your suggestions and votes. I'll be organising a few club rallies over the winter to test some thing and keep everyone engaged so keep an eye out for those, and hopefully we'll see you all again for next season!
