    This.

    I have it and I liked it. Difficult, but fun. And an array of classic rallying machines.

    Just a shame that it didn't have more licenses and was more based in realistic 60's and 70's rallying.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    I'd kill for a realistic rally sim with vintage cars, I want to drive a Stratos or an Mini Cooper @ monte carlo.

    The mod community for Colin McRae and Richard Burns Rally will assist.

    I prefer the driving/physics model of RBR and know there is a Monte Carlo mod for it ( but not sure if classic or modern stages ) and there are also car mods for the Metro 6R4 and Escort Mk2 ... but not sure on Stratos or Mini. Googling around the sim community you'll find the RSRBR packs.

    COlin McRae rally series provided the Stratos out of the box and the 67 Cooper, jsut can't remember which series. Again googling in the sim community will find demo and mods.

    There was a game called Rally Trophy that's all vintage stuff, the most modern it gets is Escort and Stratos. If you can find that it'd be worth a go.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    Here's a preview of Dirt 3 via one of the developers. Of course Jessica is always easy on the eyes.

    Good move on their part. I enjoyed Dirt 1 so much more than Dirt 2. The whole X-games angle was a bad move.

    It would be neat if they'd make a racing/role playing game. Where if you broke down while racing, you'd have to find the different parts to fix it, meanwhile coming upon various adventures.
