The DiRT Roadbook – October 25, 2019
New cars, a high-selling auction and a spooky challenge, it’s time for The DiRT Roadbook!
Peugeot 206 Rally & Volkswagen Golf Kitcar – Available now in DiRT Rally 2.0
There’s only one place to start this week and that’s with the latest cars! On Tuesday we released the Peugeot 206 Rally and Volkswagen Golf Kitcar into the world of DiRT Rally 2.0, and both are a real joy to drive. I’ve already seen people mimicking Gilles Panizzi’s famous “I’m leading by so much I can donut this turn for fun” moment, chasing World Records and more. We’ve been at it ourselves too, as the videos above show.
Both cars are available as individual DLC items now, but if you want the full experience you can also get them through DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 3 which is available here.
1 Real-Life Lancia Delta S4 Rally – Yours for £764,375
If you’ve been playing a lot of DiRT Rally 2.0 you might have driven the Lancia Delta S4 a fair bit, as it’s one of the standout cars in the Group B 4Wd car class. A real-life S4 made the news this week as a headline act at RM Sotheby’s auction in London. The asking price, over £700,000.
A prized piece of rallying history, the Lancia Delta S4 caught a lot of attention, with the winning bid ending up at over £750,000. You won’t have to pay anywhere near that however to experience the sheer force of power that it is, as it’s available in the base-game of DiRT Rally 2.0.
Not driven it yet? Our current DiRT World Champion’s been taming Argentina as you can see above, which dovetails nicely into…

There’s just one set of Qualifiers left in Round 2 of the DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series. If you haven’t set a time yet you’ve got a few days to do so, and everybody that does will get a BMW M2 Competition for use in My Team. As usual, all the info’s in the links below:

DiRT Rally 2.0 Version 1.10 – Coming Next Week
Shortly after the World Series Qualifier ends we are expecting to drop the Version 1.10 update to DiRT Rally 2.0. In this update are new Achievements, Steam VR optimisations, community-requested car fixes, Broadcast Mode updates and more; hit up the link below for the notes.
One thing to point out is that we are going to reset the Leaderboards for Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi as the update rolls out. This is due to new Track Reset lines being implemented; if you’re looking to take on the Leaderboards for that Location we suggest you wait until after the update has been completed.
