Codemasters has announced that 9 million players have played DiRT Rally 2.0. The ultimate rally simulation has been enjoyed by more players than ever before. However, do note that this number does not translate to the units that the game has sold.
To celebrate the occasion, Codemasters looks at some of the significant stats created by the DiRT Rally community. To date players have travelled over 1.5 billion kilometres or 981 million miles.
Furthermore, Hawkes Bay in New Zealand is the most popular place to visit, with its smooth gravel and banked corners helping tame even the toughest of rally cars. The heated tarmac treat of Spain comes second, with the terrifyingly high-speed Poland in third.
Additionally, the MINI Cooper S was the top pick as a great beginner’s car. Additionally, the Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 came up next. Another Volkswagen, the Golf GTI 16V, is third just ahead of Colin McRae’s legendary SUBARU Impreza 1995. Rounding out the top five is the Ford Fiesta R2.
Over in the world of Rallycross, it’s the World RX Supercars that the players are jumping into the most. The Audi S1 EKS RX quattro is the top pick, followed by the dominant Volkswagen Polo R Supercar. The Volkswagen Polo S1600 came up third. The SUBARU WRX STI Rallycross is another fan favourite, with the RX2 car, the Ford Fiesta OMSE SuperCar Lites, completing the Top 5.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
