aint that easy mate! unless you have a rich daddy you would have to be prepared to spend alot of money. you could have a go at some rally scholarship thing but they're like a once in a lifetime chance and you be up against alot of competition. Theres very few who are that good or that lucky. my advice would be to enter a one make series if you think your good enough but you'll have to learn the hard way and find the price of it first. In rallying its money that makes the wheels go round!

well i'm 17 and i bought a 205 gti last june. I got the money by working for 2 summers and saving every penny! I did odd jobs while I was in school as well. I joined the local motorclub 3 years ago and helpt out on events doing organization stuff. So after buying the car i bought the clothes and entered 4 hillclimbs on my own money. I'm broke now and trying to find sponsors to help me continue. So basically save up as much money as possible.. find a decent car and prepare to spend your money!!

PACENOTES YOU BEST CONTACT PATTERSON'S @ WWW.RALLYNEWS.NET, ALSO A HILL CLIMB LICENSE WILL NOT HELP GETTING A STAGE RALLY LICENSE, YOU NEED TO CONTACT MSA (IF IN n. iRELAND OR UK) @ WWW.MSAUK.ORG. nEW RALLY DRIVERS HAVE TO DO A COURSE NOW A DAYS WITH MSA OR CONTACT MOTORSPORT IRELAND IF YOU LIVE IN SOUTHERN IRELAND.

my advice is start road rallying. Its the 'cheepest' way to get into some sort of motorsport. It might not be as fast as the proper stuff but its a start and its great craic. The Welsh and Northen clubs are fair good at organising the old road rallies, prob best to join a motor club and they'll point you in the right direction.

you could try endurance rallying. Entry fees are relatively cheap at bout 250 quid a time but you get a lot of competitive miles for that, alot of it in the forests. All you need is a 1400 (or less) car, with half cage, 4 point belts and 'recommended' guards and tyres. Sounds pretty cheap to start off with but you start putting more and more on the car with ends up running into thousands (which is alot for a poor student like me). But hey a few grand is only the tip of the iceberg as far as rallying is concerned.

If you live in St Ives youd be better of with a radio control car-the streets are about as wide as Miss Clares wee bum-very nice that it is too, mind you.

Cornwall is my favourite place in the world-I was at Camborne-used to go watch the tour of Cornwall years ago-mainly airfields but did get to see some of it.

The easiest way and cheapest way to cross the Tamar is on the A30-you only know you are over when it says welcome to Devon.:p
