DiRT Showdown Demo

A bit after it was first announced, the DiRT Showdown page on Steam now offers a playable demo for the next installment in this rally racing series. This announcement offers word on the demo and some associated RaceNet rewards:

In the demo, the single player ‘8 Ball’ race, players take part in a chaotic, full-impact race in the shadow of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, using boost to sprint ahead of rivals and speeding through crossover points where drivers can dodge or takedown opponents. Once players have completed the race, they can challenge a friend online to unlock the ‘Rampage’ multiplayer mode. In ‘Rampage’, eight drivers feed their appetite for destruction in an online demolition derby event, earning points for crashes, smashes and eliminations.

Gamers who download the DiRT Showdown demo are also invited to sign up for RaceNet, the free new online extension for Codemasters Racing games, which enables players to track their Races, Rivals and Rewards. Launching in beta, players who register now will be able to join in community challenges and once the full game launches, track their progress in game and track challenges with their friends. Gamers who join RaceNet will also be rewarded with an exclusive ‘RaceNet’ livery for use in the full game and will receive $20,000 in-game currency for DiRT Showdown when it races into retail on May 25th.

Personally, I enjoyed the gymkhana events. They required control of the vehicle instead of smashing everyone's car into the wall to get ahead.
Funny you've said that, most of my friends that are really good at racing games (F1, Forza, Dirt, Grid) are terrible at gymkhana, those few friends that are not a big fan of racing games and usually bashing into everyone in online races for fun, are absolutely amazing in the gymkhana , and drifting events.
I love racing games, usually buy them all, but I absolutely hate gymkhana, it frustrates the shit out of me. Since this game is all about gymkhana and demo derby it isn't worth the full retail price imo. I might pick it up down the road from the bargain bin, but it is not a day one purchase for me, based on my demo experience.
