Codemasters has today confirmed that the DiRT Rally 2.0 World Championship will begin on September 10.
In partnership with Motorsport Network, the competitive gaming Championship is open to all players across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles as well as on the PC platform.
The DiRT Rally 2.0 World Championship heats will be played over three months and will consist of three weeks of qualifiers each with a pre-determined location, stage and car class.
All weekly winners across the three formats will qualify for the quarter-finals with an additional place going to the players who have the fastest cumulative time each month. The quarter- and semi-finals will take place over the weekend of December 7-8 and will be broadcast live across DiRT Rally 2.0 and Motorsport Network channels.
Players can choose whether to use a racing wheel or a controller for the qualifiers. The DiRT Rally 2.0 World Championship Final, however, will be played with a racing wheel only.
The competition concludes with a live final at the Autosport International Show at the Birmingham NEC on the weekend of January 11. 2020.
To take part in the competition, you must navigate to the ‘World Championship’ tab in the DiRT Rally 2.0 main menu. Now simply select ‘Qualifiers’ and select ‘Qualifier Rally’ or ‘Qualifier Rallycross’.
