$60,000 for Thursday to Sunday, give or take, is what I hear thru the grapevine. So, $20,000 a day. With 100 riders, expect to spend $200 for track rental alone. My best guess, a competitive price might be in the $400 - $450 per day with 75 or so paid riders per day, with all 3 days booked to capacity.


My first reaction to the new track, watching the first half of the video, is how close the walls and barricades are to the track surface, especially at a couple of corner exits. I wanna see if this is the case in person, on a bike, on the track. NOW. RIGHT NOW.

i dont think it will be as much as yall think, Miller motorsport park in Utal was $269 for the outer loop 3 mile lap and the 4.5 mile full coarse was the same $269, Laguna is like under $300 from what I hear too

Wouldn't that be $15,000 per day or am I reading it wrong?
