Check out the latest DiRT 4 article dedicated to the inner workings of your very own race team; how you hire and fire your staff, brand your vehicles with your own livery and sponsorship deals, and improve your facilities so you can expand your team’s impact and performance.
To start your team, you need to get some staff on board. You start off with a small yet perfectly formed set of employees, all covering the vital components of a motorsport team – including an engineer, a PR agent, a co-driver, and spotters for Rallycross and Landrush. There are some empty slots in the team locked to begin with, but these spots will unlock as you improve your facilities enough to cater for additional staff members (we’ll run you through the facilities section in a moment!) For everyone you have employed, you also have a fact file of info on them – what their skill levels are like, what their mood is, what kind of cut they’re taking from your overall winnings, their contract duration. Once you’ve hired them you’ll find out if they have a particular trait you need to keep a look out for. These traits can be positive, but they can also be negative – and in certain scenarios, will affect the outcome of a certain situations. So keep an eye on your staff!
