Oh, but their is a PC game modelled after a rallying championship.  It
has been marketed under a few names.  In England (and probably Europe)
it's "Network Q RAC Rally Championship" and I have seen it in stores in
the US as just "Rally Championship" with a different box and cover.  I
have the game and it pretty much ROCKS.  I also have the additional
track add on called "X-Miles" that adds something like 5 more stages. 
The first 28 stages are based on the actual route of the RAC rally from
1995.  The only bummer about the game is no quattro.  There are six
different cars to drive- Subaru Impreza, Ford Escort Cosworth, Renault
Megane, Proton Wira, VW GTI Golf III, Skoda Felicia.  It takes about 8
hours to complete all 28 stages.

Still not as good as the real thing though...
