You know, if you asked me to pick my favourite driving game of the past few years, it wouldn't have the words "Turismo" or "Forza" in the title.

That's because my favourite driving game of the past few years is DiRT 2, which is fast, slippery, gorgeous to watch and, if you've got surround sound, incredible to listen to. It may not have the cars or the seriousness of its more esteemed competition, but by god it knows how to make you feel like you're barely keeping hold of a very fast car.

Its sequel, DiRT 3, is out now. So here's a trailer to get your heart racing as fast as mine is from having played it all day long.
