It’s going to be a “MEGA” weekend as the World RX Esports invitational brings together the dream team for commentary.

Andrew Coley is the lead commentator on the real-world FIA World Rallycross Championship races and also narrates various segments of DiRT Rally 2.0, like the Colin McRae Scenario introduction videos.

Alongside him is Neil Cole, who you’ll find wandering the paddock on World RX weekends talking to drivers. He also appears in DiRT Rally 2.0, as your spotter in rallycross events. If you’ve ever been reminded to take your Joker Lap, he’s the one telling you to do so.
