WRC6 Review… Part 3: The Stages

In the 3rd piece of this 4 part series covering WRC6, we’re going to take a look at one of the most important aspects of any rally game. As I hinted at the end of part 2, this is one of the things that can “make or break” the experience. What are we talking about?...

WRC6 Review… Part 2: The Cars

In part 1 of my WRC6 review I discussed the “feeling” of WRC6 and whether it captured and portrayed, not just the physics, but also the emotion of rallying. Today I’m going to focus on the cars themselves. I’m going to touch briefly on physics, but since I already covered that in part 1, I’m...

Do We Really Need More Whinging?

5.9 seconds. 5.9 seconds are covering the top three after a fantastic day of rallying in the Mosel vineyards and yet, the WRC Promoter still felt the need to goad it’s drivers into whinging about road order to create a sense of buzz and drama. Here’s how it played out. After the first loop of stages, during...

What the Doctor Ordered

Last week, news broke of the creation of a new sanctioning body for rallying in the USA. Named the “American Rally Association”, this new organization announced its intentions to serve as the custodian of American stage rallying moving into the future. At first, this seemed like an amicable transition of leadership from the current organizer/promoter: Rally...
