The track picks its way through an old marble quarry beneath a beautiful blue sky.

Bridges over the quarry and old machinery help to plot a techincal and flowing track in a very unique setting.

Official FIA Rallycross cars

DIRT 5 doesn't go down the officially licensed route much, but it does include official FIA Rallycross cars. It's a perfect marriage as the wild racing in Rallycross meshes wonderfully with the ethos DIRT 5 is trying to get across.


Speaking about is, Development Director Robert Karp said;

"Italy has proved to be an incredible setting for racing. Carving out routes within a quarry, an abandoned marble mine, and underneath the stunning Ponti di Vara bridges challenged the team, but players will love the experience.
