Colin McRae: DiRT 2 demo live

Download two events from the high-powered racer

The spinach-powered demo of the DirectX 11 version of Colin McRae: DiRT 2 has gone live.

If you've got a monster set-up you'll be able to plough through two events.

"In the 'Trailblazer' event, players take on the ultimate test of rally car against the challenging Moroccan terrain on a point-to-point track filled with flat-out straights and hair-raising hairpins in the Mitsubishi Eclipse GT," says Codies.

The second event is 'Landrush' at the Ensenada Port circuit set in Baja California. It's an 8-vehicle romp, basically.

Here's the PS3 version, which won't look as good as the DirectX 11-powered PC version.
