Rally driving at its finest!(r/gifs)
Good sense of speed through a narrow forest, you can hear the frantic pacenotes (the things the “passenger” is telling the driver so the driver knows what’s up ahead), you can see the driver’s current gear on the dashboard, and a bit of the driver’s footwork. This might help you understand what driving in rally is like.

And if you want to try rallying virtually, check out Richard Burns Rally! It’s still considered one of the best rally simulators to date, and it’s only about US$5 on Amazon. It was released in 2004, so most computers should be able to run it.
If you decide to buy Richard Burns Rally, considered looking at game mods. A group of modders in France recently released RSRBR 2013 which adds new cars, new tracks, and improved physics. This may need a little more powerful computer to run.
I bought a Logitech Driving Force GT steering wheel on eBay for about $85. It’s a great starter wheel with nice force feedback that will help you feel your car better as you drive.
Come by /r/simracing, too!
