Anyone provide me with a rough estimate of the costs of next years race series?
I realise that you can go bananas and spend £10K+ on this, but how much do the experienced ones amongst us reckon it would take to get a competitive bike on the track next year, compete in all rounds and get all the spares/supporting stuff required?
Ie, how much for a fair 620, modded to compete, entry to race series, ACU licence, tyres (wets and spares) etc, etc...
The other thread and a thread I started on the MOC suggested that I would be looking at £6k-£7K for the year?
Is this a fair figure? Any ideas? If this is realistic, then its too steep for me.
Its about justifying the money for the relatively short tracktime. How many trackdays can I do for £6K? If you take out the running costs, purchase price etc, then there's still around £2K slack here - so I reckon that's 10-15 trackdays? Is this fair?
I kinda now see the reason why Kev was looking to compete in other series too, in order to justify the expense of setting up the bike I suppose?
