I've never done any races but it looks like it would be hella fun to do. I actually got to take a short ride in a legit Rally WRX/STi. Apparently my Mom's neighbor maintains a couple of rally cars and this one was at his place for the week. Took me up and down the long straight road right in front of their house with the anti-lag on. It was a blast.

im highly recommend to we meet some where and i took you RKT team. /the rally service guys/ They can give you a best ideas about how you build your car. No BS guys. Also i will dig up the rules for you , but RKT team can help you there even more.
Like parts you should use vs others etc. They are in rally since 1979...

So the good advice never hurts . LOL

So i'll back to you soon. Dont think you have brake the bank for the rally. Specially with the golf. You will be hooked forever. That is an urban legend you need to millionaire to be a rally guy.
Also the community is simply awesome.

Nothing... and I mean NOTHING beats the sounds of exhaust popping through the tree's as a driver downshifts. Talk about the best eargasms.

There is a person who rallies on here, MAP Rally Team.

Here some shots I took at this years STPR:








As far as cost, expect to spend $4 - $5k for a log booked car. The expect to spend around $2k - $2.5k at each event (entry fee/fuel/lodging/food/etc). Expect to spend $800-$1.5k for safety gear for driver/co-driver. Maybe Mark will chime in since he's actually rallied

2-3 K every event to be safe . + tires. Depends on many things, in that case LOL

I would say for start at least get a $10K car, you dont need to much trouble for start. Plus add some minor changes etc. That is always happening...
So i would say to be safe, for a FWD car which is key ready with log book etc. You will end up around $15K. And that would be a close proper start for rally racing.
Then you need personal stuff . should be around $2300 each person in the car. You need Hans device which alone cost around $700.
Well if you pick a seasoned co-driver , he should have everything. And would be a great benefit for you in racing too. He will know everything about whats happening, which will give you confidence , there for better results.

Then you need some extra parts, crew, etc. So it is more complicated then most car races . But well worth it. Once you run it, you will never look another car race.

Search around on specialstage.com they commonly have fully prepped and logged rally cars along with spares for less than 10k, sometimes they even throw in the trailer which really simplifies things.

A few years ago when I was active in autocross, I talked to some of the people in NJSCCA about rallycross in New Jersey and the big hurdle is all the rules involved with it..
