Sounds kool! Though a lot of money... :(
:D
How do you figure?

850 split 4 ways is $215 or so per person. Pretty much going rate for a track day on the east coast.

Not to mention that if you are on a team you get the trackday the day before for $100 per person.

If you do both days its 315 total, or 160 or so per day.

The prize better not be a medallion! HAHAHAHA :D
Cool opportunity, I highly recommend racing on an endurance team, you'll have a great-great time:)

The entry fee is kinda steep:eek:...for reference, the entry fee for a 4-hour endurance race with WERA is $300.

300 per team or per person??

It also includes half a track day for the morning sessions. Not race practice, its a regular track day style.

Remember, this is a track day group so costs for track rental, insurance etc are probably a lot different than for WERA.

BTW, I have zero financial interest in this....just going for fun!!
