  1. That’s not a lot for a complete car and a team.

  2. I think its just for the car and parts.

    I wouldn’t mind have that.  I’m assuming its not street legal…

  3. lol

    You’re gonna have to pay for the expenses though. Each race costs money… and I think even joining cost a great sum. Then there’s the costs to maintain the car throughout. Then there’s the need to maintain the sponsors. Then… you hope your people cooperate and don’t need you supervising them every second.

    There is a lot more… but for a complete car I can use on track days…
