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)

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.

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.

Wow that's awesome, that's a few rally drivers we have on the forums now, we'll be able to set up our own real world event at this rate!

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.

1) Yes, though I could only do 1-2 a week, its getting to be summer over here, and I don't spend so much time indoors 
2) Dirt 1 - 3
3) DRC is great
