Several years ago while attending a GGR DE event at Laguna Seca a couple parked next to me in a new pick up and a car trailer. He unloaded a race ready 911 and over the course of the event we struck up several conversations. He and his wife traveled around the country participating in as many races as they could when he wasn't working. I got around to asking him what it costs to race for a year and he confided that they spend around $150K a year to race as an amateur. Can't imagine what professional racing costs but it is probably a good case for sponsorship.
