THE COST OF GOING RACING
We wanted to know much it costs to go professional road
racing in North America. Countless conversations, phone
calls and e-mails later, we believe we have some answers.

Racecars get damaged, it comes
with the territory. But a spares
exclusivity deal for chassis-supplier Dallara on its DW12
had the IndyCar teams up in
arms last year. Used to sourcing
or making their own, teams
baulked at the cost. As a
compromise, prices have been
reduced by 14 percent for 2013
and frozen until March ’ 14.
