2014 Season 1, Round 3 @ RC Excitement '12

The world famous 'the Dirt' track at the Fear Farm in Phoenix Arizona is now available in VRC Pro.
With the help of the track owner Kenny Brosh and Neobuggy.net Philip Mortstedt for delivering all the reference photot's to our 3D artist Tony West, we were able to reproduce the Dirt 2013 lay-out in great detail. This track ranked high with our beta testers because of the flowing yet challanging lay-out.
Next week the 14th edition of the Dirt Nitro Challenge will be held, from 19th till 23rd of February.
Simultaniously with the real Dirt we present the first Virtual Dirt Nitro Challenge 2014 starting Thursday February 13th with Open practice. This round is NOT mandatory but we thought it would be nice to offer you guys some extra practice at this brand new track.
Check out the Tales of the Dirt video about the making of the real Dirt.
