There is no such scene of prizes around WRC as racers pay manufacturers to participate in races. Only a few participants who hold contracts with various motorsport companies are paid.
While some new wrestlers also get awards based on their performance. By winning the rally stage, a racer can win €20,000. While sponsorship deals also provide players with a chance to generate revenue.
Based on different sponsorships, a racer can earn €250k to €500k. While a rookie can pocket the amount up to €50,000 on winning a race besides the given prize.
