I did a track in Croatia a few minutes ago and I noticed at one point there's a sharp turn with like some brick ruins in front of you. If you slam into them the wall crumbles. Are there more semi-hidden environmental destruction pieces like this?

There are a lot of areas like that where walls or fences and such that can crumble to pieces.

Croatia is actually especially noticeable as many of the walls on that track are breakable. The church on the RAID track (Just past one of the splits, where there's a fairly sharp right turn) is one that I've smashed into and almost completely demolished a few times. As well as *all* the sections of the "Split" wall on the back stretch of the long rally track. I've frequently met my demise on that cliff...

Telephone poles frequently break off if you hit them hard enough as well. First noticed this in Morocco on the Trailblazer tracks; Hit the rock face just right and send the car flying into a telephone pole, and they'll sheer right off.

There's a ton of others I'm failing to think of right now... After awhile it just becomes so "Normal" to see bits of the track fall apart during a crash you stop noticing it. The game does have some wonderful destruction though.

Yeah I've been making it a point to plow into the environment where it looks like it might break as I'm trying to learn the tracks now. :D

On an unrelated note, I hate Katie Justice. There is nothing more satisfying than ramming that ***** off the road and pulling a first place near the end of the race.

Oh, I know exactly how you feel. As annoying and arrogant as she is in the game, I find it completely justified (No pun intended, heh) to knock her out of the track at ANY chance I get. :D

I have SEVERAL videos and screenshots saved on my computer that involve her flying off the track in a spectacular crash. In fact, the image I use for my Steam account profile has her crashing in the background (Even though you can't *easilly* tell who it is):

And another one:

No, wait, that one gets better:

HA!

...Yeah, I share your pain and entertainment in ruining her day.

I've actually got a LOT more where those came from.

These three are from a short clip I recorded. She hit the jump wrong and started going sideways, nosed-into the ground, flipped 3 times end-over-end, and proceeded to barrel roll a couple times:

Another shot from Baja; She hit the jump and proceeded to go nose-down, landing on her roof and skidded a good couple hundred feet (was hard to really get a clear shot):

Just a sample of the screenshots/videos I've collected in the many hours I've put into the game. I can honestly say that DiRT 2 has some of the most spectacular crashes I've seen in a racing game. Even better than games like Burnout that give you that "Crash camera", as these have a much more realistic feel to them. :P


And on the original topic of environments being destructible, I just came across one of my clips from one of the China Trailblazer tracks where I demolished a telephone pole:

As well as one of my all-time favorite shots of a slightly more durable pole, from the same track:
