    Agree with that, and old N4 rules 100% getting in into this gap. They need good 4wd car who everyone can build by his own. Yes it's another big step from N4 to R5, but driving skills and technique more equal than R2 to R5. FWD and 4WD even comparable.

    Good driver's can take the step up from R2 FWD to R5 4WD quite easily. But this isnt the issue - its cost.

    When a 5-year-old R5 is still over E100,000 (plus running costs), what normal person can afford that ?

    Say I wanted to enter a decent rally series with a 4WD car, what are my affordable options ? Just ancient Subarus and Evos.

    Yup, just old Subies and Evos. There are also the proto cars which are slowly evolving. On the cheap they can be has for $50-60k depending on spec.

    Only for certain national events...old N-s and Protos, although the last are one of the best things that has happened to a petrolhead fan, when talking about local championships.

    Yeah too bad a lot of organizations don't allow protos to run. The Yaris, Suzuki, Mitsu, Ford and VW protos built by Dytko are decent quality and look great in person.
