Racing- counting the costs

Postby eastlmark » Thu Oct 20, 2016 10:53 pm

Thinking of going racing? want to know the costs?

We have just finished a season with CSCC, racing on top notch circuits, all 40 minute races with 30 minute practice sessions.

Entry fee's: 6 events £2280.00
test days: 2 £474.00
Fuel (race car) £463.58 (does not include van fuel)
Tyres 4 £643.83 (does not include tyres we already had and several wet sessions/races with very little wear
on our "wet" tyres- had these been all dry I would think we would have needed another 4)
Other spares purchased (not all fitted): £2000.00 (this included 2 new wheels to make a set up and 4 brake callipers due to bleed nipples issues- old one have been repaired and can be used again.

Damage repair: £0.00!! thanks guys
failures: 1x aux belt £40.43
Oil gearbox and engine: £100.00 (had some with car when purchased)
Servicing set up carried out elsewhere £1070.50 (not including hours put in by myself)

Obviously, need a car and trailer first and does not include any wear and tear and hours on the car. Tools and pit equipment.

Go racing guys!

Thanks, Mark. That's really interesting. We wondered what it cost to race your Clio. Very lucky to have got through 6 races with no collision damage though :)

Very good driving standards in cscc. Accidents aren't unknown, of course, but are relatively rare across all their series.

Gentleman racing, rather than whacking wing mirrors.

More akin to club motorsport where the aim is to go out and have fun with your car ........ rather than throwing everything into the first overtaking opportunity to be seen in front of you.

Well done mark and guys.

Things could have been very different... I recall Phil Gardner and I at the pre season test day watching Riku heading backwards towards the barrier on wet grass at Coram... could have easily been season over before it even began.
