The inaugural DiRT World Championships are now underway.
Utilising DiRT 4, the very first round sees players get behind the wheel of a Group A car as they tackle a two-stage rally in Australia. Players have the choice of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, 1995 Subaru Impreza, and the Ford Escort RS Cosworth.
The DiRT World Championships can be found under the ai???Community Eventsai??? section in DiRT 4. The eSports event will see players competing online in both rally and rallycross events with the goal to make it into the live-streamed quarter-finals and semi-finals.
The final itself will be live-streamed on Motorsport.tv on May 26 at the Speedmachine festival (which hosts the British round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship).
The DiRT World Championships will host a total of six weekly qualifying rounds. The two fastest times on every platform (PlayStation 4, Xbox and PC) will qualify for the quarterfinals.
