I was thinking 15 and 5 also. But I have no idea how much it costs to keep a track up and running.
Also is it going to be a timed race or is it going to be laps?

$50 for entry fees on a race day?

Looks like The Factory will be my place to race.

This is what I was told the other day and I'm trying help get the pricing into reason. I will post if it changes.. they are new to the track business and we need to all work with them to have it reasonable and bring In bigger groups of people so don't go crazy spreading the word on pricing just yet.. I want to see the track survive and I don't want people scared away in their first visit.... It is and will be a great place to go if it is worked out where everyone is happy.. I will let you guys know..

Like I said I'm not sure although it came right from them that they are dead set on the pricing , I'm going down there tonight and want to see if I can talk about it and Help setup something that will get everyone to come and drive even the people who have to drive an hour +....

Yes, I wouldn't drive an hour to pay $25 for a club race. The three guys I race with will not pay that. Even $15 for pratice is too much. All he has to do is look at the cost of tracks around him(RC Factory).

If this is the true price and I doubt it is, I would probably pay it after seeing this place and the layout. Its clearly an expensive facility Plus possible cash or prize payout and I would not have to drive so far away or piss outside. It would be nice to atleast see the second class a little lower. Just my -2 cents

if that will be there price im sorry to say this place will not make it. been racing a long time seen many tracks come and go and the only thing i know is people will not pay that much to race every week maybe every once in a while.

I hope your right too Eric cause I helped build it and it's nice but no matter how nice it is people still look at what's affordable.. We live close but I'm thinking of people who have to drive far. It needs to be a place that is inviting to them since it costs alot just to get there.. I'm just thinking there isn't enough of us close people to make a big go at it so if it's priced right we will get the ones that have to drive..

Its about an hour for me too, but even if I lived just down the road I wouldn't pay that to race. And the second class, never seen anywhere that the first and second classes were the same price.
Get on facebook and they have asked on there what we think pricing should be. Weigh in and im sure they will post the pricing by friday.
