Codemasters & Motorsport Network announce DiRT World Championships

Kevin Dooley On February 12, 2018

Codemasters and Motorsport Network have teamed up to announce the launch of the inaugural DiRT World Championships. Beginning February 19, the DiRT World Championships will give participants the chance to win a test drive at Silverstone in an RX2 rallycross car.

Utilising the “Community Events” section in DiRT 4, players will compete online in rally and rallycross events with the aim to earn a place in the live-streamed quarter-finals and semi-finals before moving on the final which will be live-streamed on Motorsport.tv on May 26 at the Speedmachine festival (which hosts the British round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship)



Operated in conjunction with Gfinity, the event consists of six weekly qualifying rounds with the first beginning on February 19. Round one features a two-stage rally in Australia using a Group A car. The two fastest times on every platform (PlayStation 4, Xbox and PC) will qualify for the quarterfinals.

We are delighted to announce the DiRT World Championships,” stated Codemasters’ eSports Manager, Andy Gray. “DiRT 4 has a vibrant and highly engaged community and we will be showcasing their incredible skill and dedication throughout the tournament. Having the final at Speedmachine, in front of a live audience of motorsport fans, will put the world’s best players in the spotlight on a global stage. We cannot wait to see how our champion performs in a real RX2 car, on track in front of a huge crowd at Silverstone.”
