Tree Dreamer aftermath success DiRT Rally released today, where the Norwegian motorsport star has a central finger in the pie.

There are games company Codemasters who has developed this in collaboration with the rally driver Kris Meek and rallycross driver Petter Solberg, and not least Petters son Oliver. The latter has in fact been heavily involved in testing and development, and has become well acquainted with the developers - that should count around 250 man.

At 13.00 Norwegian time Thursday presented Codemasters descendants after DiRT Rally, which was first released almost two years ago on PC.

- I have worked long with the English, grinning Petter Solberg opposite Parc Fermé when he talks about the recordings of his voice.

The desire of McRae family
For rally and rally cross world champion was in fact involved at the request of the family of Colin McRae. For when the Scottish rally star, who died in a helikopiterulykke in 2007, made his breakthrough on the gaming front through the 2000s, had already Petter insight closely in the development of racing.

Colin McRaes game series started with Colin McRae Rally 1 in 1998 and eventually evolved to Colin McRae DiRT. After his death it was Ken Block who took over part of the profile around the game with both DiRT 2 and DiRT 3.

Now it is Petter being the main star is, which also says that Kris Meek is on the team.

- Actually, the plan was that I should take over the franchise after Colin died, but at that time I had a deal with Microsoft I could not exit. But Colin and I tested a lot of games around the hotel and such. His wife wanted me to take over, and now I have the opportunity, says Solberg.

Oliver heavily involved
And as mentioned, son Oliver have also on their own initiative and desire contributed.

- It has been his own desire. He became good friend with the developer of the game, has met all the gang and been down there with them and tested several times. But I've also been there on several occasions and tried some himself.

- So you can tackle Oliver at stake?

- Hehe, no. Oliver is a good deal better than me. I trailing there.

- But can games be used in any preparation for you in the professional?

- Of course. You get trained on concentration and pathways are quite similar. One gets also experienced working with different cars when the cars are different. In the previous game so was my car (see photo, journ.anm) pretty well realized, with the exception that it was perhaps a bit more controlled than in reality, says Solberg.
