I did enjoy that.
Highlight for me so far has been the 12-lap race with the crazy parallel table tracks with tabletops that lead to the cars criss-crossing between them. Might not have felt that way if i didnt finish first.
The AI is specatacularly good on this, they make so many human errors and get clipped on the crossovers etc with the same regularity that a human player would. Its the first game in years (probably since one of the old F1 games on PS3) that has actually enocuraged defensive positioning in to corners to prevent getting tapped and spun round. In most games you know the AI will slam on the brakes to avoid you, allowing you to take pretty much what ever outside line on a bend that you want.
Bonus points for the trigger rumble on this - its as good as in Forza Horizon 4 (which is to say VERY good).

I've been setting up races where it's me in a beast of a vehicle against a ton of lawnmowers, on tracks with crossovers, or the death loop track. The lawnmowers are generally all gone by the end of lap 2.
I can’t stop playing Wreckfest. Been up till gone 2am for the last 3 nights despite having work at 9am on 2 of the following days.
One thing I love among the many is the variety of tracks. I’ve been playing Single Player exclusively so far but a mix of the Career and the Tournaments Daily/Weekly challenges.
Makes a change to have such variety and a lot of the tracks are FUN! Those which encourage or force you to double back against the pack , especially when leading or challenging for the lead are at times!
The 1x 3-wheeler vs 23x Buses was fun. But the revenge 1x Bus vs 23x 3-wheelers was great too!

Yep and I love it.
I'll add that, playing exclusively online does have draw backs, it takes a LONG time to get your XP up and surprisingly, there are a few like, top tier racers out there who avoid the carnage. They lead uneventful lives I presume.
I've beasted my car with mods up to C164 (if you go to 165 it goes onto B class), my advice is do the daily challenges and main campaign a little bit at the start so you can get top 3 places online (unless you get wrecked ) and earn decent XP.

Just add an extra drive to your system for all these GP games. SATA slots are plentiful and SSDs cheap nowadays.
Dirt 5 is X/S enhanced so has to run from the Internal drive.
TBH it's more the size of the download as I swap in and out games all the time between internal, an external SSD (speed from internal SSD to external SSD is insane) and a regular external HD.
Actually, on that, 2 of my friends have 10x the speed of my internet on upload AND download (mines 60down 30 up) so they download games MUCH faster but when we play online they are Always having lag problems and I can't remember the last time I actually lagged in any game... must be a persistence thing...
I bought a 5TB External drive last black friday and thought that would be enough for all my archive games, so I wouldn't have to delete things. Not even close. I don't think they come much bigger at the moment without needing their own power supply though.
Oh my, been playing Dirt 5 all morning it's BRILLIANT. I don't know if the weather is dynamic or not, it may be later on but at mo I think it's pre-determined but from dry dust to rain and puddles/mud everywhere is amazing to witness, the same happens starting with Rain and ending dry, then a mud track turns to all white when it starts snowing. The effects are great, and you have day and night as well. Handles so great, the oversteer/understeer sliding around corners is addictive (hit B button for Handbrake).
With Forza 7, Horizon 4, Need for Speed, Burnout Paradise, Wreckfest and now Dirt 5, GP has the racing genre sewn up.
