I get this error in DR when I exit a Championship race back to the menu. It doesn't save my progress either. *smh*
@Sporadik Go back and check the threads you keep posting this in, i've given you the fix.
I have but nothing has worked. So I just retired the rest of the rally, got relegated (didn't care much at all) and everything has worked fine since. I see the orange save swirl again as I should.

I can do daily events but not leagues... Not sure what's going on. When I try to access the league option it tries to access racenet and asks me to sign up. Nevermind it connected at the start of the game. So far I've never been able to see the league screen. Also my version still says 1.0 despite the 1.0.3 update. Windows 10 user here on a Win 10 install not upgrade.

Since a couple of days racenet isn't available
(at least for me). I get the message:

  'Racenet is not available, please try again later'

Occasionally I got this for 'Dirt Showdown' during
last years but now

  Grid 2
  Grid Autosport
  Dirt Showdown

have this problem. Games are working but no progress
is saved in single user or carreer mode. This renders
these games 'useless' for me. Have tried w/ and wo/
steam cloud save, with an old Player and with new ones.
Also tried to delete Grid 2 completely and re-installed
via steam. All with same result.

Anyone or Codemaster can help?

I have the same problem since couple of days - Racenet is not available. Please, try again later.
I launch the game, and it logs on just fine, I go to first daily, run the stage, finish it and it uploads to Racenet. Then I go to second daily, press continue and instead of loading the stage I get the error message.
I did verify the cache and it did not help.
Please, advice what should I do.

You're in luck, here is the fix for this, and, I did see you say you've validated your cache already.

Go to your dirt rally directory and delete all the files and folders inside it.
Then ask Steam to validate the cache again.
Profit.

Problems connecting to racenet, only in the LEAGUES, no problem at Daily Events, can not understand. 
No error, when I try to enter the LEAGUES it goes rapidly trough is options, trying to connect, retrieving expired events, each of this screens takes less than a second, and it says finally racenet is unavailable, try again later... 3 days in a row with this problem...
can someone help please? Thx!

Hi there, I am having the problem I can´t race online events. Whenever I start Online events in career the game is stuck. However I installed the DVD-version of codemasters (version 1.0). Do I need to update to a later version? Anyone got some ideas? Thanks

You need to give us more details, is it running through Steam? have you validated your cache?

@F2CMaDMaXX , tried validating the cache, not solved.
events always working with racenet on, Leagues, always the problem! Can't connect, "try later".

already loosing a league event... 
Codemasters too busy with the console launch? Many of my friends here at Portugal are experiencing the same error.

Right click on Dirt rally in steam, properties, one of the tabs, local files i think, has the option to validate the cache, do that.

Did so, it´s not working. reinstalled steam, reinstalled dirt rally. tried again, could not play online.

The game is running fine, progress in career is being saved. When I try to play online, daily race or something, nothing happens. Racenet tells me the race is available, nothing happens when I click the launch button. Any ideas?.

I  can't sign into Racenet on PS4. Would like to check out some league stuff.  I can do the dailys, weeklys, and race online rallycross.   Everytime I try to sign into Racenet it says that Racenet is down.   Any news on when it will be up?

Hello there!

Since a few days, I'm also having issues with RaceNet connectivity. Two days ago I wanted to finish my monthly event, and EVERY time after finishing stage 13/24, the message "RaceNet not available at the moment" appears. (In german, I don't know the exactly english text). So i was not able to finish my monthly event, which was really frustrating me, because I already finished 12 stages. The next day (yesterday) I tried again, same issue.

Today nearly the same happened on the daily2-Event. I buyed the 205 to start racing, and after seeing the map of the stage to drive, the error message "RaceNet not available at the moment" appears again. Here the bad thing was, that I was not able to start the stage again (like I canceled the race).

It's really frustrating, I had a lot of fun with Dirt Rally the last weeks, but now it's really driving me mad!

Hope you can help.
Best Regards from Austria,
Bernd

I've been having problems connecting to Racenet on XB1 for a couple of days.

It will connect every now and again, so i can run a stage, but then it becomes unavailable so i get a message saying data will be uploaded at a later date after completing the stage/event.

Connection Refused and Racenet unavailable error messages.

Any idea's?

Racenet is still intermittent today on Xbox one, i managed to complete the Rallycross daily stage and saw the leaderboard.

After continuing i get the message Racenet is unavailable, any chance you can fix your online codemasters?

For me, personally, it's getting better. Experienced no issues yesterday and today. Strange!? I still don't know if it is a local error, or if there are server issues at Codies.

Well, for me racenet works something like this. You start the game, racenet seems to load correctly, online events work and so on. Then you go to leagues section and it says (around 90% of times) that racenet is not available. Then I just bash the a-button and within ten pushes it works. So something is certainly wrong in that login sequence.

Yep indeed, doing the same thing as you described. But should be fixed urgently

I tried it this morning and I could not sign in , so I did a hard reset on the Xbox tried it again and it signed in right away. I was not able to race bc I had to go to work but it looks like mine was a local problem. Maybe something for other people to try, hope it helps some.

This worked for me too, but it shouldn't be the case! Codies, please look into this, it's SO frustrating! It worked well the first week or so but has been getting steadily worse.

I know not signing in to RaceNet is not the end of the world, but I like doing the online challenges. To be honest, it's the first rally game that I've really taken heart too, and wanna keep playing it.

It's getting worse again - so frustrating! Started the daily event a few minutes ago - "RaceNet not available". I restarted Dirt Rally, and now I'm again not able to drive the Daily - AAAARGH!

ANY infos if this is a local or server issue?

Is this thing ever going to work?

I'm able to get online 1 in 10 attempts.
Chucks me back to the menu after every stage.
Can't upload times.
Have never seen friends comparison times.

I'm now starting to get locked into a never ending 'racenet offline' dialog which I can only press continue - racenet offline - continue etc.
Have to dashboard the game to get out of it.

Whole thing needs sorted. I'm not even trying to race rallycross, just rally mates times in league & dailies, but still it doesn't work.

Hi I am unable to connect to Racenet. Was fine when the game was released, now it gives me the message that unable to connect to racenet. Will very occasionally connect, but will use disconnect before starting online or leagues.

Hi there.  I too am unable to connect to Racenet the majority of the time on Xbox One.  It was virtually flawless at launch, issues started cropping up a couple of weeks thereafter and it has ground to an ever frequent fault since.  It would be great to get a fix on this as making progress through the online events is a real slog at the moment, and I love this game.

I have some more info on the Racenet connection troubles for Xbox One.  When I play in the morning I seem to have no issues at all, when I play in the evening Racenet is either down or refuses my connection.  Could this have something to do with the amount of players that are connected to Racenet?
