The DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series begin on September 10, and continue throughout the end of 2019 in the search for the world’s strongest Rally and Rallycross players. In partnership with Motorsport Network, the series will see players compete on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam in a number of online challenges, with the live final being held at the Autosport International show in January 2020. For more information about the competition and Motorsport Network, our press release can be found here.

For the next 3 months, in-game Qualifiers will take place in DiRT Rally 2.0, with separate categories for both Rally and Rallycross. On December 7th and 8th, the Quarter and Semi-Finals will be broadcasted live across DiRT and Motorsport Network channels, showcasing the game’s strongest players in their element. Throughout the Qualifiers players can play on their preferred home setup, however the live finals will be a wheel-only competition.

Qualifiers can be found in-game by navigating to the World Series tab on the main menu, and updates throughout the season will be available here and on Motorsport Network channels. Here are the list of World Series Qualifiers for both rally and Rallycross categories. The fastest player in each Qualifier on each platform will earn a spot in the Quarter-Finals, with invites passing-down if a player has already Qualified.

Hi mrTierney, Im still not sure what your rules on cutting is during the qualifying.
It says in 55. That the game may give penalty for cutting.
You must be aware that there are plenty of opportunities in the game to make cuts (whole car off track) without getting any penalty.
It would be sad if the fastest driver with the best/worst cuts gets rewarded for what many regards as cheating.

Just seen a blog post that would suggest that It’s live on the 10th and we have until the 16th to compete in this first stage? Can anyone confirm? Thanks

Have I got it right that you get one shot at qualifying - one run and that’s it? Or can you keep trying until it closes after the 16;th?

It seems oculus isn't on a PC, or at least it ceases to be a PC once an oculus headset is attached

I expected as much given the lack of clarity throughout regarding the oculus version.

I believe the announcement does mention Steam, its just unfortunate that the documentation isn't consistent with that.

How is that OK?

Is there a plan to support Oculus users, or at the very least get the Steam version to work on the Rift?

honestly as much of a **** as I'll sound... I'm totally ok with this. Most of the masses that went to the Occulus version I'd much rather never hear from again - or see in any of my lobbies/championships either.

Why?

I bought Oculus version just because they said that is optimized for Oculus Rift and Steam for steam VR. Now you say that is OK why that particular version can't access World series?

Times aren't considered "validated" until the end of the first event. So the M2 won't be in the garage until next Tuesday.
