      Racing is not cheap. How much to campaign the car in the OP for a year?

          Their daily commute in winter doesn't count as rallying.

            What if your daily commute is on very same public roads as 1000 lake rally.

            I was more joking that the daily commute in rural finland was indeed basically rally conditions, including speed. It would also explain the popularity of the sport in the country.

    If you want to watch modern rallying, it's all on RallyTV. It's kind of a shit streaming service for it's price sadly, but modern rallying is very underrated. You can find non-paygay streams on DA.
    Other than that there are local rallies. Amateur rallying is incredibly based with lots of crazy builds, timeless classics and rickety shitboxes.
    The aforementioned rickety shitboxes mean that while it's still an expensive sport, it may not be as expensive as you may think to participate yourself.
    If you're a simgay you can get Rallysimfans RBR, it's completely free and still the best rally sim. Very fun.

        I know at least one current wrc2 driver who used to play modded rbr between seasons as training
        A lot of drivers put up videos playing wrc10, admittedly this looks to be mostly a pr thing
        Can't say the same for dirt rally

        RBR's physics are way better. There's nothing better for snow and gravel. More modern circuit sims have better tarmac physics, but they're not rally games of course, unless you're playing a heavily modded AC or so.

    Tons of people talk about it, just no one in your country. Focus on more important things, raise your family.

    By being rich as frick and buying your way in like Ken Block. Shit is expensive as frick even at the amateur level. Just getting a shitbox car to meet the 400 pages of safety requirements is brutal ($xx,xxx) then all the consumables on top of that. Not worth it imo when I can just go out and drive fast on my local gravel roads.

    The closest you can get without building a race car would be your local autocross events. Most of those can be done with a stock vehicle.

      If you want to go past basic rallycross it gets stupid expensive, even rallycross is wayyyy too rich for my blood, I was at the Olympus rally this year talking to drivers and they said any car with winter tires could enter but a weekend is minimum 200 for entry, which older guys that raced in the early 00s said they stopped because it got to 35 bucks for the weekend. The same young guys telling me this also had a car hand built by their father with a sequential transmission and full certified roll cage like it was nothing, pic related

    If you want to rally, go to a rally school or something. In my country (where even normal track days have $200+ entry fees), you can get like 16 laps in a proper rally car (wrx, evo etc) for $300 for example.
    It may seem expensive, but consider how much it costs to attend a rally event even without the costs of buying/building the car. You need to trailer the car in most cases, all the fuel involved (for car and tow car), entry cost, insurances (possibly), accommodation if far from home, consumables such as tires etc.
