DiRT 5 is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated games of the year. With a feature list that reads more like something you'd dream up than reality - a dynamic weather system; real world locations that see you skid past Christ the Redeemer before barrel rolling under the Northern Lights; a fancy livery editor; free PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades; a variety of both traditional racing, and more objective based modes; and perhaps most impressively, a full on career mode with support for four-player split-screen co-op (!!) - DiRT 5 looks like a real return to its roots for the series, with a more arcadey, fun, DiRT 2 kind of vibe, as Codies more formally split the series into the serious DiRT Rally, and the fun-focused DiRT. 

But great racing games aren't built overnight, and DiRT is a series with one heck of a heritage, stretching back to the days of yore on the PS1. So come with us as we test your knowledge of the history of DiRT! Take our quiz to find out just how much you can remember about the games gone by, and you might win!
