Default Miata turbo only track day?

So I was looking around on different track wed sites and found that it only costs $4300 to rent Buttonwillow for a day, If we could get 43 Californians or more interested it would only cost about $100 each. would anyone want to go in on something like this or has it been done?

Gotta consider the hidden fees. Does the track provide insurance? corner workers? emergency services?

Miata Challenge FTW. Insurance, ambulance, corner workers, etc. aren't cheap.

Ambulance isn't mentioned on the Buttonwillow rental page, insurance is. Gotta provide your own it appears.

Quote:
Event dates will be secured by written contract and a $2,000 deposit for each event. Liability insurance with policy limits of $5,000,000 will be required for each event. The insurance premium necessary to maintain this coverage will be the responsibility of the user. Liability and participant accident insurance may be available through the track. No event will proceed without insurance coverage acceptable at the sole discretion of Buttonwillow Raceway Park.

I've looked into this,
Corner workers were like $17.50 per hr and ambulance $150 per hr. on top of track rental fee.
