OK, what I wanted to know was the price/benefit analysis, and maybe
an idea of what the costs might be.
It sounds like the costs would include
magnetic numbers for the side of the cars
booklets/ binders/ mailings of rules, regulations
rental of the street from Nevada
hourly wages of overtime Nevada Highway Patrol (several)
hourly rate for an EMT/Ambulance crew
insurance for the organizers
insurance to cover the track liability (Nevada in this case)
preparation and repair of the course
amortization of the equipment (timing & communication)
signs, banners, handouts
some profit to pay for running the Ferrari Club
some profit to pay for the QCUSA club
mineral water, cheese&crackers, gatorade, BBQ?
It sounds like the price/benefit analysis is
It costs $385
You get to drive real fast legally
You are part of a "happening"
You get to see Audi's beat Ferraris (yee ha)
If you cannot afford it: you don't go
If you can afford it:
price/benefit favorable you go
price/benefit unfavorable you don't go
