If a PCA weekend is 450 as per Mayor Frank, the math is 125+ per day. For 11 days of testing and racing that works out to 1.375m. SCCA is putting on the test days, not the track. Which is close to the number I heard SCCA had agreed to. Which at $1125 per car works out to 1350 cars. Which takes into account no test day or parking fees. My guess would look like
 
Entry        1125 x 900 = $1m and change
If all test days sell out every group  $687k
Parking fees, just a wild guess total $100k
 
Total SCCA intake should be under $2 million even if we add a significant positive fudge factor.
 
Add in insurance, employee salaries, travel expenses for employees, trophies, parties, worker give aways, and I would bet the event is close to a break even plus or minus.
 
Pretty big gamble if you ask me

Yeah, I think my number is too low as well. I am just going off what I have heard from someone who used to work for national office. However, I think we would get a lower per day rate since we are going to have the track rented for 11 days instead of two that the PCA does

Your NY numbers must include 2 from WA.

 

 
That is a good observation! That is because the Motorsports Reg has "Hometown" and Amy Mills and Whitfield Gregg have a Washington city listed as their hometown.  The reason why I changed it is because I know they race on the east coast and I believe they live in NY.

Nazi's should be Nazis.  It is not possessive.

It's unlikely. There is a huge opportunity cost for the track to give up two full weekends in the summer for a non-annual event. Same deal will be if/when the event goes to COTA is my guess.

The cost of the track for doing a DE such as what we have done for 3 years is 20 K per day plus 15K over the three days for the flag crew, and they have lots of flaggers on track and a host of TV cameras

 

The cost for a 3 day RACE was in the higher price point due to it being priced as a race vs. Testing.

 

The track has an impressive array of cameras, They will be able to film every infraction, so no passing under yellow you on video.

I edited my entry no problem at 10a when the reserved numbers opened up.

P.S. I actually had to go back and re-enter my originally registered test day. I could have picked any of them.

P.P.S. Got this email at 1:09p: "The registration system is temporarily down for edits (including adding test days and changing car numbers) while a repair is made. You will receive a follow up email notification when this function is available again."

Figured I would recalculate since there are a lot more race entries and test day entries.  The numbers with 800 entries was:

  • Entry Fee Total = $1,212,850
    • Race = $900,000
    • Thurs Test = $49,225
    • Fri Test = $74,900
    • Sat Test = $88,000
    • Sun Test = $100,725
  • Garages Total = $97,800
    • Gasoline Alley = $54,600
    • Grand Prix = $43,200
  • Parking Total = $58,600 (Avg at $100/driver, Less drivers in Garages and estimated Gravel Parking of 100 drivers)

Grand Total = $1,369,250
 
 
The new calculation with race 944 entries:

Entry Fee Total = $1,539,785.00

◦Race = $1,062,000
◦Thurs Test = $74,285
◦Fri Test = $114,800
◦Sat Test = $142,500
◦Sun Test = $146,200

•Garages Total = $97,800

◦Gasoline Alley = $54,600
◦Grand Prix = $43,200

•Parking Total = $63,000 (Avg at $100/driver, Less drivers in Garages and estimated Gravel Parking of 200 drivers)

Grand Total = $1,700,585.00
