DiRT Forum Competition - The Setup

Recommended Posts

So I've been thinking about running a DiRT forum/contest/league type thing where its effectively ran like an actual rally event with stages and a leaderboard with total times etc

Here is a brief run down of what I was thinking of doing:
  • You guys get into teams of two
  • I set the week's stages (maximum of 3 per week)
  • I tell you what game mode/car class (and sometimes which car) you need to use
  • This could be from any DiRT game (any platform), depending what the majority of you have
  • You have 5 days to enter the event and submit your best time
  • I run a leaderboard of the total times for the previous weekends event for drivers and a season leaderboard for teams
  • We'll decide on how many weeks a season should run (I'm open to suggestions)
  • You guys can make videos/livestream etc if you like
  • Winning teams get prizes
So I just have a few questions:
1) Would you like to take part in such a thing?
2) Which DiRT games do you have? (let me know what platform just in case we decide to do some rallycross/live mp events)
3) What shall we call it? I was thinking DRC (DiRT Rally Championship)

1) I would like to take part!
2) I have Colin McRae DiRT 2 and DiRT 3 (PS3 for both)
3) Maybe the Codies DiRT Rally Championship?

Great Idea Lee!!! :D

1) Would you like to take part in such a thing?
- Yes! :D

2) Which DiRT games do you have? (let me know what platform just in case we decide to do some rallycross/live mp events)
- PC , perhaps with the new Codemasters Rally game ;-) ?
Use to play the old CMR games at the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2, CMR04, 2005 at the PC, D1,D2,D3 at the Xbox 360.
Have to mention that I sold the 360 ;-) but willing to buy it again for the PC 

3) What shall we call it? I was thinking DRC (DiRT Rally Championship)
- "DiRT Rally Championship" sounds good!

I have Dirt 2, Dirt 3 and showdown on the PC but I prefer Dirt 2 because Dirt 3 and showdown have a bug which crashes the game after a race if you have motion or telemetry turned on.

I am really keen and would love to team up with someone.

Here is a video of my rally skills.

I would love to, but I wouldn't be able to take part until June due to University. I'm on 360, and have all 3, although I havn't played the original in a while!

Yes was wondering why he has car gauges on the table lol

Thanks, The gauges are mounted directly to my rig using some custom fabricated mounts. I use a Symproject Pro-Gauge to run my gauges and Fanaleds to run my little rally timing computer in the middle. I am just about to add motion to my rig. I got the same place that builds my rally cars to build my rig.

I am a huge rally fan so I do like my rally sims. I owned every Colin McRae game for the PC and all the Dirt games for both PC and Xbox. I remember going to LAN parties back in the day and kicking everyones ass at Colin McRae 2 in a MK2 Escort. CMR1 was one of the main reason I got in to rallying in the real world, it even had New Zealand stages. I rallied a Hillman Avenger (very similar to a Ford Escort) from 2000-2006 in New Zealand, and now I do motorsport photography. I am in the process of building a new rally car, a V8 Hillman Avenger.

So yeah I am super keen to get in to this rally comp, and I can't wait for Dirt 4.

Yes that would be very cool. but for now virtual rallying will have to do. I can't wait till my V8 rally car is ready. I really miss rallying and New Zealand is such an awesome place to rally, we have a really big rally community over here. I would love to go over and check out some of the European rallies. They look real fun.
