Same here on the cost. It's still "cheap" but after a weekend with me and 2 kids, as well as a set of tires or 2, I finished the weekend thinking, "How did I just spend $600 on a TMGP weekend?" lol

Re: Those mini bikes you see here

Tires (street tires) and entry fees for a 6 hour endurance at CMRA on an EX300 is about $850. Four sprints are $230 ($40 each for additional races) plus about $450 for a set of street tires for the sprint races. $155 for a license. A two man team that endurance races and sprints an EX300 will spend about $1200 per weekend each at CMRA.

Tires (race tires) and entry fees for a 4 hour race at Mini GP is about $320 and the same tires can be used for at least 2 weekends so actual cost is about $240. Four sprints are $70 ($5 for each additional race). $330 per person per weekend, including the $35 license fee.

Sloan, you got off cheap.

Oh I know. I help run the Your Pace or Mine? Graves Yamaha R3 team that runs the #1 plate in the CMRA UltraLightweight Endurance Championship. We ran BBE a few years back too. Now THAT is expensive! lol
