Below is an overview of the costs that are likely to be incurred when racing in the 2KCUP. This list has been created with the idea that you will still be using the car as a daily driver and that you will be doing most of the work yourself:
- Up to $2000 for the Car
- Log book – $30
- W.O.F – $30-50 every 6 months.
- Rego – $74 every 3 months.
- Transponder Hire – $30 per race weekend.
- Entry Fee – ~$300 per race weekend.
- Fuel – ~$100 per race weekend.
- Helmet and Overalls – $0-2000 – When buying safety equipment it is always an idea to get the best you can afford.
- Grade C Motorsport license – $200 annually.
- 1KG Fire Extinguisher and mounting bolts – $20-40
- Race numbers – $10-40
Recommended if you want the car to last:
- Tires – $200-800 a set – New tires should last a season, an average cost for new UHP tire is about $600-$800 a set
- Brakes Pads – $150-400 – Race pads should last a season of racing, road pads will last maybe 1 or 2 rounds.
- Brake Fluid – $50 – Old brake fluid is usually the first thing to fail at the track, I highly recommend doing a flush.
- Replace warn suspension/steering items such as tie rods and ball joints – $0-200 – It will also fail on a W.O.F. if anything has excessive play.
- Wheel Alignment – $40-80 – There is no point in getting new tires without doing an alignment.
- Oil and filter change – $40-80 – If you want the engine to last, make sure to give it some fresh oil and a filter change.
- Gearbox Oil change – $50-100 – Helps to stop the gear changes from crunching.
- Engine Coolant Flush – $30-60 – Get a decent anti-freeze to raise the boiling point and reduce corrosion, fresh water should also help with heat transfer.
Recommended (optional) Safety Items:
- Race Seat and Harness – $450 from Jamex
- 1/2 Cage/Roll hoop – $500-$1000 – Minimum requirement for Open Top cars, this includes targa tops
- Full Cage – $1500-3000
