I'm going to guess cost will be subject to number of participants. The more that express interest will bring the cost down.
May ask the committee if they could indicate an expected cost or price range...
Should be a fun day, and I think the turn out should be good!!!

Any indication on cost? Night speed is round $40 race entry so at a guess it'll be round $80-$100 wouldn't it?

Any one on the committee able to confirm?

Dedicated race cars can participate subject to the following :

Race license
they have a logbook
they don't crack 10 secs.

Thanks to the organisers and helpers, well done guys and girls, Blew my fuel budget for the week, used $12.87 to travel from Northshore, do a few runs and back home again.....I guess that's the cost of motorsport. 8)

That's so funny Andy, who would have dreamed that you could do that sort of exercise for those dollars. Oh by the way I will wave to you when I pass you at the charging Station, don't forget to add the coffee and cake into your power bill.

Wave in the direction of Needle Point Reserve just past Northcote Point, when you're travelling north in the outside lane on the harbour bridge. You may not see my car beside the garage, plugged into homegrown, off peak, 12c a kWh goodness (for litre lovers that's 30cents a litre equivalent), but nonetheless I will keep an eye out for you.
I will be sure to reciprocate if I see you on a crowded, windswept, oily and aromatic forecourt or maybe I will spot you standing in a queue surrounded by convenient pre-packaged food of doubtful nutritional value, waiting to be served by a disinterested minimum wage worker eager to channel your hard earned dollars to a needy middle eastern royal or texan oil billionaire.
