there is any rally fan here?

just as the title said.

I do some rally races and im a big fan of it. Anyone else here who likes rally?
I find it out in the states not really popular. I think mostly because it is way under advertised, for various reasons... So i just like to know anyone here is like me.

yes i love it. Its a dream of mine to one day get behind the wheel and give it my all. I know id become a decent driver given seat time but ill never be able to afford a real car. So I skid around in my s14 instead.

went to winter rally ny last Jan or Feb. I dont remember if your evo was there or not because i rolled my ankle hiking the woods so the day kinda failed for me.

I love to watch rally, anything from wrc to lesser known events. Streetsistalkin it sucks that its so expensive I'd love to do rally if I had the chance to. It's such a awesome motorsport and you are right its very under advertised Rob.

Rally racing is for ricers and Evo's are supposed to dominate the drag strip, not prance around on gravel and dirt.

cool . There is any video, if you guys got there or events news you interested?
If you guys come out for the races we can chat there at the service.
I'll go july 10-11 to Okemo Hill climb to Vermont. That is practice for me, and good entry for tarmac rally. You can run street car too, or set up you car /which we do/and they time you too. Two days is $175. Friday inspection recce, Saturday - Sunday race. and the cool thing is as i heard , the start is at the camp where you will probably stay
Any way if you guy s interested "local" races and pics video i would post them here.

Cheers Rob

I love to watch the old group b races. those were some crazy cars back then. I'm glad they added rally to the x-games. as much as I would love to run a few races I wouldn't know where to go or even begin, I think I would just love to find somewhere close by to watch a few races to begin with.

i did started with the First gen GTI back in Hungary. You will love that car in rally. I think the best way to get into rally is the FWD platform.
I know a best shop 1000 miles around for Rally cars. They actually did raced a Golf and they right now building one. But they are generally EVo's and STI builder.
The golf will be they own rally car.

Got a list of those specs? Ive always wanted a rally car, ive been racing my whole life, so this could be it. Im currently building a show car (my golf), but im most likely gunna sell it when im done for way more then I paid, and itll all be cash in my pocket. So this could be something. I kind of want something AWD, but yet I want to support VW, hmm lol. Mark II GTI.:R? lol

Soo mad. I DVR'd 24 hours of lemans, F1 race, and 3 days of Portugal Rally. The DVR filled up and deleted all the WRC.
