That danger sign is proving tricky in the winter so far, can’t get much more than 700 ft.

edit - I did it after a few more tries.

Which one is it? Is it the one over the freeway? That one proved tricky in Winter last time it was up as a seasonal. But it was eventually possible.

Yep that’s the one… tricky because no matter how much speed you get, the bumps and slope saps it at the last moment. I like it when they’re a bit of a challenge though.

This danger sign was tricky but the route in this video is probably the best. Driving straight on doesn’t work well because you lose too much speed when in the air after crossing the road just before the sign.

Trial is Gardens, Coastal Rush and Titan, so set aside a bit of time for it. Should be simple enough though as it’s off-road, so the likes of the 17 Raptor, MB X Class and Ranger Raptor are all available and any decent A class tune used for ranked should do the job.

They seem to love using this danger sign in Winter, when it is very difficult. Will have a go at it now.

Managed it third go in the Mosler. From memory,it’s best to hit it at an angle - although I largely relied on pure speed to get it - keeping the Mosler pointing straight is hard work on the snow though!

Speed zone is relatively easy in an S2 class Hoonigan RS200 - best to start the end nearest Derwentwater Trail though, so you can start on the straight (the other end has a couple of tight corners immediately you enter the zone).

If the danger sign is the one I’m thinking of, I normally go up to the field and head straight for it but in winter it’s best to hit it from the road to the right. Still takes a few attempts to line it up perfectly.

That Northbound danger sign in winter? I can see people complaining about it, but I smashed it at 230,8 meters. After 20 tries or so.

It’s easy with the “Ferarri 599XX E”.

New PB, with 858.39ft (261.6 meters).

Drove at the jump from angle rather than straight towards it.

I set a new PB at 279M, starting from the right side of the old tree on the hill, oh yes, that would be around 915’.

Difficult trial, 3rd try was the charm. Easy to miss check points, aggressive cannot drive X country team. Car flips on first track same spot every time near the end. Two 2nd and would have won the last if I didn’t take the jump. Here is my advice if you are not good and cross country, and you know who you are stay out of peoples way and don’t try to mess them up. Glad I played Storm Island on H2 for a year.

Lost the first three attempts due to quitters.

Got on fourth try, but there was something wrong with the AI.

Drivertars in “MB 65 AMG” where skidding left and right all over the place making it impossible to pass and they glitching in and out of the game.

Oh cool. Free Aston Martin DBS Superleggera this week.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has a 200K CR perk in its mastery tree.

The danger sign is a bit tricky. I usually start at the top of a hill next to a single tree on its own. I was in a Mosler for the speed trap so I tried that first. Didn’t quite make it so tried a Hoonigan RS200 and got it after a few rewinds. I got the best results choosing a line of approach which reduced to a minimum the amount of air during the approach to the danger sign.

The Mercedes-Benz SL65 FE from Championship 1 has a 300K CR perk in its mastery tree and I’m looking forward to:

2016 Renault Clio R.S. Concept 16
2018 Renault Megane R.S
2017 Alpine A110

I don’t know how I got 56% just doing the regular races? Usually I have to do the stunts too.
