Why stop at 3. If your famous just get a 12 car hauler with 8 rally cars and four service vans. Then get a rock star style tour bus to haul your team of 36 to the events.
One service van per two cars.
Two service guys per rally car.
Two floater service guys. Jump to whatever team needs them or is in service at that time.
One team food person. Makes sandwiches, reservations, buys beer, etc.
One team manager. Coordinate the whole ordeal.
Oh, and I suppose we'd need two drivers for each vehicle. Better make it three drivers, one for the hauler, two for the tour bus, so we can drive straight through to the rally.
So that makes a total of 39 people needed. And an annual budget of $$$$$
not one of our trucks, but I saw it at the IRL races frequently.
I ended up selling the wrecked STi. Kinda still regret it. the decision ended up being - sell the STi wreck (for a nice profit) or have another project on the go that would require regular injections of cash. Common sense prevailed (unfortunately).
So it looks like right seat rally time for the future, no driving. And Club Time Trials is coming along nicely, so I will put in another year as chief steward.
See Dave, you could take that truck, load your rally car and this into it, and you have yourself a rally team. Your service crew may get you into trouble here and there though, so maybe you'd be better off with a Volvo wagon instead. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/coswoth-van_W0...QQcmdZViewItem

Or, two other CRC fools with $9k for a tow rig could go in on this together. You can drive cars thru, and I'm sure 3 cars and spares would fit no problems. I'll bet you'll only get 5mpg towing, but divided across 3 teams, that's not all that bad. We'll load up A-ron with some jerky and red bull, and have the trailer out to the next event in no time. Then the rest of us can fly in like we're famous...
There you go Dave, its has the 24 valve Cummins Turbo Diesel in it, Full tow package including a Jake Brake, the only down side is it is not 4x4 but for towing I dont think I will really need it all that much.
