You could win a Dirtfish Rally School trip in Dirt Rally 2.0 as the Solberg World Cup begins today, April 13th, 2020.
The club championship takes place from April 13th until June 14th, across six rally events hand-picked by professional rally driver, 18-year-old Oliver Solberg. The son of 2003 WRC champion Petter Solberg will also be rewarding the top 3 drivers from each event with goodies, along with various “Solberg Sur prizes” for random participants.
You’ll recognise DirtFish from the Freeplay mode in DiRT Rally 2.0, and they’ve been offering tuition since 2010 in Snoqualmie, near Seattle. And competing as DirtFish Motorsports as well, so it’s a really cool prize. As explained by Trevor Wert from DirtFish.
“We’ll fly you out to Seattle, cover your transfers and the hotel. But here’s the best bit: you get to go to dinner with Oliver Solberg… and then have him teach you how to drive one of the DirtFish rally cars the next day. We’ll even send you home kitted out in some cool DirtFish kit.“
“Along with Oliver and his folks, we’re aware that some of the gamers jumping in for the Solberg World Cup in association with DirtFish might be a bit younger – which is why we’re offering two tickets. If the winner is a junior, they can be accompanied. But, if it’s won by somebody a bit older, the second ticket gives you the chance to share what’s going to be a special, special memory.
“Trust me, the winner of the Solberg World Cup in association with DirtFish will not forget this trip in a hurry.”
After the popularity of “The Solberg RACE” which attracted around 4,000 drivers, it seemed like a good idea to organise the Solberg World Cup:
“The response from The Solberg Race was unbelievable and more than I could have expected. That was fantastic. I’ve got to be honest, when I was doing that event, I was thinking a little bit about a championship.
“These days are quite strange for all of us, so the chance to think about something other than what’s going on in the world is good right now. That’s the plan. I want to make people think about the next round of the championship, how they’re going to prepare, set the car up and do their recce. This could really give us all something to talk about.” said Solberg.
