Auto Club Speedway cost us $16,500 to rent per day. And that's the DISCOUNTED rate they charge.

Throw $1,200 on there for insurance, $1,200 for corner workers, $2,000 for food, and you're already looking at at least $21,000.

Divide that by 65, which is our usual average numbers of attendees (capped due to numbers of instructors available), you're looking at $323.07 per person to BREAK EVEN.

We (Central California) just had an event at Buttonwillow and that's far cheaper to rent, and the prices for that event was a lot cheaper than what we need to charge for the L.A. event.

Believe you me, the CCA is a 507 non-profit organization and every PENNY in income gets taxed up the wazzu. We're not in this to make money.
