Think you’ve got what it takes when it comes to rallying? Now’s the time to put your skills to the test! Following on from the DiRT 3 competition to win copies of the game, this will be a knockout tournament taking place in the Head 2 Head mode. Each round will be the best of three legs, the winner of which moves onto the next round until we have a winner.
Three Legged Race
For each round the three legs will take part on the same tracks, with the same specific car selections and weather conditions. These will be:
- Location: Aspen
- Track: Buttermilk Descent
- Vehicle Class: Pro
- Laps: 2
- Conditions: Snow
- Location: Monaco
- Track: Marina Face-Off
- Vehicle Class: 60s
- Laps: 2
- Conditions: Evening, Sun
- Location: Smelter
- Track: Dredger Duel
- Vehicle Class: Group B
- Laps: 2

Number of Entrants
The maximum number of entrants is 32. I will use random.org to organise the order of the players. If there is not a full complement of 32 players those that are lucky enough to be drawn to race a blank space will be given a by into the next round. Places will be handled on a first come, first serve basis, should there be more than 32.
The method of entry is to post in this forum thread, clearly stating your interest and PSN ID.
Organising the Races
The competitors will be responsible for their own races. Each round will give you a week-long window in which to contact your opponent, organise a date and time and get the racing done by 9PM on the Sunday evening. You will need to post your results in the tournament’s forum thread here. If there are any problems, also post in that thread and I will do what I can.
Don’t forget, there’s a weekly DiRT 3 meet on Sunday afternoons, so that’s a perfect time to meet up and practice before splitting up to take part in your race.
Every week I will post on the front page, and in the forum thread with the winners so you can start organising the next race!
Thanks to our friends at Codemasters we have some pretty cool prizes for the winners. For everyone that reaches the semi-finals we have a DiRT 3 mug and for the overall winner we have a limited edition DiRT 3 T-shirt to win!
Additionally, there’s also two mugs to be won by two randomly selected entrants outside of the top four. So even if you don’t think you are fast enough to win there’s still reason to enter and have a bit of fun!
Rules and Regulations
- The competition prizes are only available to those within the UK.
- If one of the competitors makes no attempt to organise or take part in their race their opponent will automatically progress to the next round. This is handled at my discretion.
