    Yeah, as close to a level playing field as possible. Mag 7s is cheque book racing (which to be fair is every form of racing)

    It certainly is something of an arms race.

    Rallying is bad for that. If you want to be fully competitive at the sharp end of national rallying then you need either a WRC or an R5.

    150k - 220k for a proper car and then you have to run it.

    I was talking to a bloke who co-drives in a 2007 WRC Ford Focus and his driver/owner of car has a yearly rebuild/overhaul at M-Sport which is engine, transmission, diffs and suspension and with Vat it costs 65k.
