    OK, thank you for explanation. But anyway, useless rule IMO.

    So "base price" only as a demo car without rally dampers/diffs/ etc?

    Re Yaris Rally2
    "I think there’s multiple layers to its importance,” Fowler told DirtFish.

    “The target is that more people can enjoy what we have created in terms of performance driving rally cars. At the moment only four people in the world get to experience what Toyota Gazoo Racing WRC team is doing.

    “As you’ve seen from Akio [Toyoda, president of Toyota] he’s completely keen on everyone who wants to enjoying driving as much as possible, for whatever reason that makes them happy, not just winning world championships but winning maybe your local rally or regional championship, or just on a Sunday for fun.”

    We all know how developed S2000 price cap, which was if I remember
    correct 160.000 USD - Fabia S2000 was around 250-300.000 eur ready for rally.

    Price cap for rally2 cars is 190.000. All new cars are 250.000€+ ready to start the rally.

    Also rally3 price cap is 100.000€, but now you can find 1 season old cars which are selling for more than 100.000€ - how is this possible?
    Simple, new car, ready to start the rally is around 120.000€. But how, if FIA price cap is 100.000€?
    Checked Rally3 Fiesta price when it came, prices might have changed

    Rally ready car in either Gravel or Asphalt config 99 900 euro
    VIN number registration 10 000 euro
    Gravel or Asphalt conversion kit 10 000 euro

    total 120 000

    Normal equipment/ spares package chosen by most drivers/teams 10 000-30 000 euro

    In grand total 130 to 150 000 euro

    So aprox 50% of a Rally2 car, with same equipment.
