Codemasters is today celebrating a new milestone for its critically acclaimed rally game Dirt Rally 2.0, which has recently surpassed 9 million players since launch, with an infographic that details some interesting facts and figures.
A blog post breaks down the facts:
Your millions of Stages, Time Trials and Rallycross events have seen us go quite a long way, over 1.5 billion kilometers (or to put it another way, 981 million miles).
That’s the equivalent of a single trip from the Sun to Saturn, or roughly 10 trips from Earth to the Sun. Hope you brought plenty of spare tyres.
While you were at it you completed 196 million Stages;that should hopefully be enough practice to win the DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series.

DiRT Rally 2.0 sees players travel the world, taking in 26 wonderful and challenging locations, and you’ve all been busy to say the least.
Hawkes Bay in New Zealand is your most popular place to visit, with its smooth gravel and banked corners helping you tame even the toughest of rally cars.
