Was looking for my fees from back in 1975, but can't find them , but if memory serves it was about £45 for the weekend, that was practice qualifying and 2 races, set of slicks was £50, fuel about £15, plus the obvious things like servicing, repairs, food.
Slept in the van (Ford Transit Hightop) owned by my spanner man.
When I finished it cost me about £400 a weekend and I'd do 10-12.

Best waste of money ever

Iíve never done Austin, but went to Indy every year . From my experience after visiting lots of tracks in different locals, The entire Indy experience was wonderful.Lots of good cheap rooms, very nice cops who understood you were dropping big money in their city, excellent track facilities, awesome bike parking and better than average track food at reasonable prices. Motorcycles on the Meridian was awesome and having the flat track races at the fairground made for a great weekend. Just curious what you think makes Austin better than Indy. I have read about lousy parking, price gouging etc etc
