Only 10 Supercars? It is beyond my understanding how they manage to keep this series alive.

I know but still, not too exciting either. I feel a bit sorry for those who actually race.

Miki Weckstrom rallycross career has so far frozen. The reason is GRC/FIAWorldRX supercar teams price tags.

Unfortunately you need a father within the sport, a rich family or to be very good at getting sponsors in order to keep going.

But that's the case in most forms of motorsport.
Exception is endurance racing where talented drivers get a seat alongside wealthy drivers.

Yeah but it is extremely noticeable in rallycross, its not like other top motorsports really. For example how many teams are there in motorsports like OMSE and Hansen?

PG Andersson even gave up his seat in Argentina for Bryntesson so he could get a chance, saying pretty much that it is a father-son sport.

Rallycross is maybe different because costs skyrocketed in only 2 or 3 years time where other series have a much longer history.

Well, each entry in the Andros Trophy has a pro and an amateur. They do separate races, so they don't get confused.

Perhaps GRX or WRX could do the same.
