Mods, can you move this to a more appropriate folder, perhaps "General Discussion"?

Possibly, but more likely is back to Road America again a couple weeks after

Costs posted above are not seat costs, those are registration costs per the race. Lots of interest, no one committed yet!

so how much does it cost to rent the seat? seems like you could provide more details about the how it would work, how much seat time, responsibilities, what happens if the car is broken before you get to drive? what if some newb hits you? are the other drivers any good? if it was a good deal I might be down with that.

DRIVER ROSTER for ROAD AMERICA IS NOW FULL!!
Still taking applications for the season.

Great questions, the costs depends on the venue, please PM me for details. Seat time is split between the drivers and the price will reflect your seat time. You are responsible to help out with minor duties, but really just show up on time and drive consistent laps. There is a simple contract that outlines what happens if the car breaks, if another driver wrecks the car etc. Basically we're a good group of guys/gals that loves racing, and loves taking advantage of this really affordable opportunity to race on some of the best tracks in the country!!!

can you throw out a ball park number assuming the average track? or even better anything in the midwest? dont want to waste your time but I'm interested. I know the tracks, you wont have to tape a map to the steering wheel or anything
