Well with that kind of funds we all would like to race a super car wouldn't we?

I don't know what the number was, but I imagine it was a pretty decent sum!...

Would say Munnich, Ken Block and Tanner Foust got to be contenders too. From the guys that used too race in the 80's Ron Hudson was pretty wealthy. Bill Riddle my uncles old team mates a multi Millionaire

Some good suggestions so far
think Muunich and Block are probably up there along with Puchar perhaps
I remember a french guy at Loheac in 2001 who owned a castle and several newspapers cant remember his name though. He rented a 206 off JLP that day and was allegedly loaded.

Good thing about this is no one will ever know the right answer!

I'm only 21 but during the time I have followed rallycross Isachsen was the first one being paid for driving, that was Subaru. He never revealed to the media how much he made though.

Exactly, rallycross has not been a sport with lots of money. I really doubt that both Hansen and Schanche became millionaires doing rallycross, if they are.

Swedes doing rallycross are usually involved in business, are wealthy or are good at getting sponsors.

Tanner Foust is worth a few million, but I'd say most of that came from his TV/film work and not racing directly.
