Correct... it's an expensive hobby. A typical 4-day race weekend is anywhere from $2500 to $6000, depending on travel and what you're racing. There are quite a few race services companies, UCP member johnnynumfiv works for Vintage Racing Services. Local to me are Predator Racing, 901 Shop and Klub Sport, which is who I use. Most companies buy, sell, restore and broker client cars, as well as
rent race cars.

At the extremes of the hobby, there are guys running multi-million dollar rarities with full crews and support against the DIYer in his pride & joy Frogeye, DSR or Mallock. Comraderie and enthusiasm are the same regardless of budget.
