If you haven’t already ventured into sim racing, all you need is a basic gaming computer (most within the past two years should be sufficient), a steering wheel/pedal set (starting at about $250), and a subscription to a simulator. Most of these can also be picked up used for a fraction of the price as well. You can check whether your computer meets iRacing requirements
To join PCA sim racing, you have to purchase an iRacing subscription, cars and tracks at iRacing Membership iRacing costs about $100/year plus any extra cars or tracks ($12-$15 each).
