Racing gets very expensive even at the club level...and I'm not exactly rich. Not good enough or young enough to make money at it either. Bikes are strictly a hobby for me, so for now it's got to be just track days.

But yeah give me a year or two of track time and a higher salary at the day job and I'll be there.

Just out of curiosity, what type of expenses , besides a solid bike and equipment, are involved in that level of racing?
