MarTech Series: MG Motor UK Makes Play for In-Game Advertising in DiRT Rally 2.0, in Collaboration With Bidstack, Codemasters and tmwi

MarTech Series covered Bidstack, Codemasters and TMWI’s news about an industry first campaign: MG Motors UK being the first automative brand to go live in really time in Codemasters’ DiRT Rally 2.0.


MG Motor UK has become the first automotive manufacturer to champion in-game advertising in real-time. Working with leading native in-game advertising provider Bidstack and digital marketing and media agency, tmwi has allowed MG to feature in Codemaster’s iconic DiRT Rally 2.0.

The move has helped the fast-growing UK automotive manufacturer to evolve its marketing strategy to increase brand awareness among a younger demographic and reach an untapped audience.

The gaming industry has a huge audience and is currently valued at $150bn worldwide – more than the film, video-on-demand and music industries combined – which makes it hugely attractive to brands. According to Superdata, a Nielsen company, video game content is the most important, and large, new media platform since social media, with 2.6bn people – one-third of the world’s population – spending an average of seven hours per week on video games.
