From our experience a typical race will cost in travel and fuel (Non race fuel) running p class for a weekend out of state @ $5000.

Now add to this year end race (were registration is due for next year, and equipment fees etc....)(Why end of year) add at least $2000 for the little guy.

My feeling is get them now and if the don't race next year we still have operating cost???? (Just a question )

End of year should help these teams recoup rather then scramble for next year.. Without pressure of spent money???

Just my opinion NOTHING else.

Some venues you have to join local club? (additional fees)

Should this be in Milling forum or let the non racer know??
