Sorry guys, my comp is giving me probs again (it keeps hanging) and the price was mentioned in the e-mail and not the ".doc" message he had sent as an attachment, so it kinda slipped my mind. It's "30K per driver for 3 days".

He hasn't mentioned what cars they would be using, i've already sent him an e-mail regarding that.

Considering the fact that a rally course over two days costs all of 5k including food , fuel and car rentals i guess 30k for a 3 day course is just too high .. I dont see any takers at this rate atleast .. And the prices will surely not drop to less by a margin irrespective of the numbers .. Also considering the fact that most of us will have to travel from really far off places+ stay costs etc ..

Cheap alternative , unless one wants to get into professional racing would be to hire a track and just have fun ..

Compared to porfessional racing courses in USA, this is really cheap. Pro-training never comes cheap, same applies to IT industry. I am sure many of us here have attended such courses at company expense.

Well, it's still horrendously expensive. And we're not in IT (yet), or abroad! I'd rather rent a track for that much and let loose.

Of course it's cheaper than US. But is it really a good price here keeping in mind of our situations etc..?

But, it's the instructors' choice to fix the price. Why should we criticise it? And as the course begins today, it's too late to make a decision now.

Actually, nobody was planning on going this weekend. If at all it happens, it'l happen after April.
