Anyone into rally racing / volunteering?

Okay, okay... rally isn't really a "track" motorsport, but I know there's a lot of Jeep people racing, crewing, and volunteering (even helping with recovery of wayward racers).

Who's into this besides myself?

(I'm new here, just making friends)

I've been seeing some outstanding JK builds volunteering as medic response vehicles in the PNW...

For sure my new JK will see reconnaissance duty, organizer duty, and perhaps even recovery duty at rallies in Western Canada soon.

I love rally car racing, but I have no experience or knowledge of the sport. I looked into doing it once and the first requirement was "lots of money" and I closed out of the website on how to become a rally car racer.

Like with any automotive passion, there is no limit to what you can spend.

But, I found rally fairly reasonable to get started. Bought a used rally car for $5000, borrowed my safety gear for the first few events, and I've been hooked ever since. Great community.
