We’re all missing real rallying at the moment, so the Protyre Motorsports UK Asphalt Rally Championship is launching an open and FREE to enter eSports championship on the fantastic DiRT Rally 2.0 game!
The best WRC asphalt stages, which represent the very best British sealed-surface speed tests, have been selected for a five round series – like the Col de Turini, Panzerplatte and the twisty closed roads above Barcelona.
We have also tried to select a variety of cars that best represent Britain’s premier asphalt rally series, from the ones available on the DiRT Rally 2.0 game.
The championship will therefore be:
Spain (8 stages) – fast smooth closed roads
Cars: Group A – Mitsubishi Evo, Subaru Impreza/Legacy, Lancia Delta Integrale, Ford Escort Cosworth)
Germany (6 stages) – military asphalt and concrete roads
Cars: Group B RWD – Lancia 037, Opel Manta 400, BMW M1, Porsche 911
Monte Carlo (7 stages) – closed mountain roads with snow, ice and dry sections
Cars: WRC 2-litre – Subaru Impreza WRC, Peugeot 206 WRC, Škoda Fabia WRC, Ford Focus WRC, Citroën C4 WRC
Spain (6 stages) – paella at the mid-day service halt
Cars: Historic RWD – Ford Escort Mk2, Fiat 131 Abarth, Opel Kadett GTE, Renault Alpine A110
Germany (7 stages) – watch out for those hinkelsteins
Cars: R5 – Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208, Mitsubishi Mirage, VW Polo, Citroën C3, Škoda Fabia
No stage is exactly the same, and each stage has been designed as a challenge for newcomers and more experienced gamers alike – not outrageously difficult, but with some tricky weather conditions and some night stages to master!
All fans have to do is log on to the Codemaster Racenet section and add ‘Protyre Asphalt’ to your list of club favourites – and you’ve entered the series, absolutely FREE.
The ‘Protyre Asphalt’ championship will start on Monday 27 April at 4pm BST.
Each round will be available to play for seven days, before automatically switching to the next round the following Monday.
