You get dogs on the track with TMGP. They don't even have that at COTA yet.

Keep thread on topic. We are talking about road racing "Cmra" not pit bikes on go cart track

You say that like it's a bad thing.

On a cmra note, how long do ninja 250 bt003 tires last?

It really depends on how serious and what level you want to be at... When I raced National, our budget was retarded, and we were still way underfunded even for a privateer team...

It's really not to bad if you just want to have fun with it...

it is all good Mike. The question the op asked has been answered in pretty good detail by guys who know what they are talking about. The comments about TMGP were all good natured teasing, you know, the kind you and i do.
I by no means was putting any bad mouth on CMRA and CDill was just teasing me in kind. I repsect and in some cases admire the cmra guys i know, and in truth, when we are talking for real, not just BSing each other, most of the cmra guys look favorably on TMGP... we are NOT in competition with each other... there are quite a few guys who do both. I would like to do some cmra but find that with all I have to do, business and life obligations, I just do not have time to do all the things I would like to do. For anyone out there considering cmra and have the time and are looking for ways to put their budget together, go for it.
any way you can race and have a good time is a good thing.
There is no way to race cheaper than TMGP, it is the most bang for the buck.
Yes it is done at a considerably slower speed, but then the tracks are much shorter (3/4 of a mile roughly), they are narrower, tighter turns and more of them, and very technical in nature, making you actually rely on your ability and not horsepower... you get to feel up close and personal, very tight racing, bumping is quite common, passing is extremely tight and can help you get used to "feeling folks" as you go by, or they go by you...it can be very good practice for big bikes at lower costs. TMGP racing can improve your cmra abilities, it can make you a better rider, i consider TMGP an assest to cmra, not competition to cmra.

I might go out there a couple times this year and get you to show me some of the ropes and go out there and bang bars with y'all.

Other costs fluctuate, travel expenses, fuel, food, etc.

If you want to cut down on the costs, don't try and race EVERY race weekend, find someone to travel/stay with, and bring your own food.
There it is!
