Hello,

these Rallyes are completely driven by roadbook notes. The driver drives more or less "blind" only depending on the road-notes/-data (e.g.: direction and ° angle of the next curve, length of the next straight ahead part, etc.) that would said him (out of the roadbook) by his co-pilot. Without Co-pilot these driven speeds (on more or less unknown terrain!) are not possible.

Some of these rallye sequenceses/parts are driven in complete darkness. <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

Welcome on the "Autobahn"...

The Trucks on the right lane are not standing still, they go with approx. 50-55 mls/h


...and yes, to drive that fast is not forbidden ( but only on Autobahn parts without speedlimits by trafficsigns)


Cheers
