Ice-rallying vs Dirt3
Top Gear tests the virtual arena of an ice rally stage in a real rally-spec Mitsubishi Evo…

Dirt3 cannot offer you the same squeaky-cheeked, adrenaline-filled, raucous, visceral and utterly bombastic rush that piloting a Group N spec rally car capable of 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds can. To be fair though, no game can.
But what it can do is teach you the essentials of rallying. Applying Martin's techniques - with a spot of handbrake turning thrown in for good measure - Dirt3 does offer an excellent way of learning how to slide over ice, and I was massively impressed with the driving dynamics.
