hi mate have done some shifting around of the thread to try and simplify things. Its a tad difficult to see what is current and what is past. can i make a suggestion that for the upcoming rally champinship we keep it
if you want anything in a certain place just let me know. we will also try and formulate some, results boards for you with access to display the points, and a google sign in form to allow you to know who is entering the competition. Let me know if you want anything specfic on this.
Looking good though and interest is starting to build, i just feel as we are building we need to keep it simple and easy to navigate and access, especially as there is people coming across who have not played the game prior (eg me lol)
If you wouldn't mind deleting or clearing up all threads from the Pikes Peak thread down, they are all past threads (so only leaving the top 4 after the sub-board). Thanks for the help Steve.
Still trying to find good settings for Fanatec v2.5 on Dirt 4 any recommendations appreciated
I'm trying to get good settings for the G29 in DiRT 4, maybe it's just the G29 but it feels like different cars need completely different settings, I assume this just the different characteristics of the cars.
For now everything will be mostly focused on DRC Season 2 & DiRT Rally but that will followed by 2 championships on DiRT 4, one of which will start a week after the DRC. That series is going through final testing.
Also my recent promo tweet was retweeted by DiRT themselves so expect some traffic through the forum.
The future of the Delta Rally Championship will be decided based on the success of the upcoming season or if there's an increase in interest for the series. If the series was to return, it would be back on DiRT 4 as there's more interest for DiRT 4 events than DiRT Rally & it would likely return sometime in early January 2019 (or possibly mid-December with a week break for the Christmas period).
There will more DiRT 4 events coming to Delta, I will be shelving any DiRT Rally that I currently have planned & focus on running DiRT 4 events up until & beyond the release of DiRT Rally 2 (rumoured for release in 2019). These future events will include the unnamed Group B championship that will follow shortly after the DRC & R2 Trophy. The Delta Mini Rally Series is also in the works after being postponed until after the DRC.
Finally, I have been discussing DiRT 4 Rallycross with members of AOR DiRT 4 Rallycross trying to get an idea of how to effectively run a RX championship, Project Cars 2 offers more car & track choice for RX but DiRT 4's RX mode is much more fleshed out. However this concept is far down the lines before even being considered as a series.
Apologises for my absence this weekend, I'm currently over at M-Sport in Cumbria & won't be travelling home until early Sunday morning, I should be back into for the end of round 1 of both championships
I'm unsure which game to focus on after the announcement of DiRT Rally 2.0. I was going to shift focus to DiRT 4 but with Rally 2.0 being a simulator like DiRT Rally, it would make sense to focus on DiRT Rally to give new drivers a taste of what rally simulators have to offer ahead of DiRT Rally 2.0's release in February. Codemasters revealed they're dropping the dual playstyle from DiRT 4 (gamer or simulator) & sticking to the simulation style for DiRT Rally 2.0 meaning DiRT 4 wouldn't be the best game in the lead up to 2.0's release.
My problem is DiRT rally is not an easy game to get into, it is difficult at the start but will reward those who stick through it & learn how to tame the simulation style. DiRT 4 has a very smooth learning curve & caters to new players however it sometimes lacks the rally feel from trying to be a game for all, best example is the difference in the Group B cars, DiRT 4 they can be tamed whereas in DiRT Rally they never stop trying to kill you like the real things did.
Both games are on GamePass now, so for €10 or £10 or whatever a month, you get both games in all their glory, my ideal plan is to have DiRT Rally as the main game & DiRT 4 as the game for smaller & support championships.
Some people will say it's up to me since I'm running the DiRT stuff but I like to get feedback from the forum so I can build championships that will bring interest from the racing & rallying community.

Just to give my 2p here and I hope you dont mind. Although I haven't joined a league which I know I should however I have played both games and I completely understand where you are coming from. I believe the few options that you have are as follows:
1) Make the jump to DiRT, like you said above it will give people a great chance to get used to the game before the new one goes live in Feb.
2) Change DiRT 4 to force sim (not sure if you can do this) but this allows people get used to the sim aspect in a game they are already playing and familiar with so you break them in gently.
3) Stay as you are to keep the series alive and then assess DiRT 2.0 when it's out and go from there.
Personally I prefer the more sim side of things but know in DiRT 4 it gave a more accessible approach to the series. From running series in the past you could run another series may be shorter as you have been doing, then either switch to DiRT or add sim to DiRT 4 so people have the extra series to get ready for sim and then run that for a while. I presume you wouldn't just jump to the new game on day one due to possible issues and setting up lobbys etc etc so you have time on your side.
I really hope I have helped here and I am super interested in joining at some point when I have time. The beauty is both games are on game pass.
Thanks for the feedback. The next series on Delta Rally will be the Delta Mini Rally Series which will be on DiRT 4 & the club handling style is set to simulation so apart from disable exterior cameras there's not much more I can do to force sim into it. The Retro Rally Championship will most likely be moved over to DiRT Rally on the grounds of car handling & its support series will be on DiRT 4.
of course I take things bit by bit & judge what to do next.
Round 2 of the Delta Mini Rally Series will head to Wales, on DiRT Rally that week will be the Powys Forest Rally, a 10 stage rally testing drivers abilities as much as possible. The rally will allow all the usual classes (no Group B) but the Group B 2WD class will also be allowed (Opel Manta 400 & Lancia 037 Evo 2), the layout will be 4 short stages, 4 long stages & 2 randomly picked stages, all types of weather conditions will be used. Plans are in place to hold similar event on DiRT 4 in the Delta RallyChamp club.
December 2nd will see the launch of the Retro Rally Championship, a 6 round championship on DiRT Rally. This series will be limited to only 2 classes, Group B 2WD & Group B 4WD, there will no class points system for this series as the classes (2WD & 4WD) will be ranked on overall points scored but the team championship will return. At the same time, the Delta Historic Rally Series on DiRT 4 will be held. This series will also have just 3 classes, Historic 1, Historic 2 & Historic 3. The class standings will be follow the usual 5-3-1 system.
The third season of the Delta Rally Championship will return in late March\early April & will most likely be on DiRT Rally 2.0 with support series remaining on DiRT 4, this won't be finalised until car & stage lists are revealed, if R2 cars make a return, the Delta R2 Trophy will return & may be incorporated into the DRC itself meaning both series would take place on same stages.
