These events aren't cheap to run. Track rental for someplace like Heartland
Park or Willow Springs can run from $2000 to $5000 per day. The organizers
have to buy wads of liability insurance, which runs $10 to $30 per driver.
Stapleton Airport's road course costs us nearly $1000/day for 50 drivers.
2-day schools at Heartland Park (Topeka, Kansas) are $170 for the weekend: For
this you get some classroom, an instructor in the passenger seat, and eight,
20-minute track sessions, or about 80 laps. By Sunday afternoon, you'll feel
its money well spent, assuming you don't wad up your car... ;-(
