Codemasters releases DiRT 2 PC demo

Download it now to try out two events.

A playable demo has been released for the PC edition of forthcoming racer DiRT 2.

It lets you compete in two events from the game. In Trailblazer you'll hoon round a Moroccan track, complete with plenty of flat-out straights and hairpin bends, in the Mitsubishi Eclipse GT.

The Landrush race takes place at the Ensenada Port circuit in Baja California. You get to race seven other vehicles in the big fat West Coast Choppers Stuka TT.

DiRT 2 takes full advantage of DirectX 11 technology and so you can see this in action, the demo comes complete with a benchmarking mode.

Visit to find out where you can download the demo. The PC version for the full game is out on Friday. Console versions are already available - read our review for the lowdown.
