Those numbers are in line with those here in NC, give or take $10. "Big" events cost significantly more. Take care. Tom Worthington

Holy shit, that's ridiculous! Martin charges $25 for a Friday night test and tune. Gates open at 5, testing goes from 6 to midnight or so.

Like I said they are crooks. The former owner at one time was charging $89 and no one was coming out to test days, Duh! then he lowered it to $65. This guy who owns the track now is starting to sink money in the place and I guess he want it back now. Looks like less test days for me or I will just spent it elsewhere.

Yeah , but not sure about running airstrip with radial slicks ? Got 2 meets this month if rain breaks up , Nostalgias and 2200 DRA 1/8 mile club day . Nostalgias is $150.00 , DRA $220.00 ? though there is a 70 vehicle limit , No pay out for either event , just some trophies and normally a bunch of fun . Wont be running as much this year , moving workshop blew the budget . Track championship is out till after mid year probably .
May try and save for a trip to Portland , did Mildura last year . Would love to run Perth , but cant afford time/fuel bill to get there . Would need to score a lift . :D
Cost over $800 in fuel for Mildura , plus 2 failed fuel pumps
