Introduction to Dirtring in GTA Vice City.
Gameplay of Dirtring in GTA Vice City.

Dirtring is a checkpoint side-mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, one of the three events that takes place at Hyman Memorial Stadium.


The premise of Dirtring is for the player to reach a total of 32 checkpoints scattered around an arena-sized area containing ramps, wrecks, walls, and a dirt track using a Sanchez dirt bike; many of the checkpoints are located at places typically hard to reach using a motorbike, requiring the player perform stunts (loop-the-loops and jumps over wrecks or rings of fire) or ride along thin ledges or planks to reach a checkpoint in an elevated position. These rings of fire have no effect on the player or their vehicle whatsoever.

Because there is no time limit (although the player's run is timed), the player may choose to complete the side-mission at their own pace; completion of the side-mission at any time is essential for completion. If the player is dismounted from their bike, the player has 30 seconds to return to it, or the player fails the side-mission; the player may also walk to a halo in the middle of the course to end the side-quest.


If the player succeeds in reach all checkpoints in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, the player will be awarded $50,000. Otherwise, the player will simply be rewarded $10,000.


There is one known glitch with the mission in that if you park close enough to the Hyman door that you are drawn into the mission by getting out, if you push the enter vehicle button right after getting out and activating the mission; you will begin to get into your vehicle again and you will appear in the mission inside the vehicle you had outside.
