Lets face it motor racing is becoming more and more elitist just like it was in the 50s and early 60s when "most" drivers came from well healed families.
Everybody wants their pennyworth from race parts to entries as it's a business and some people will cherry pick on what meetings they want (or can afford) to do. I was very lucky in that I worked for myself and earned good money, my wife also had a high powered job and we had no offspring that can be a money pit. I also had very good sponsorship with all the entries paid for as well as a lot of the parts and did all of the work including engine builds and bodywork on the car myself, so I did it on a shoestring budget in comparison to a lot of people that finished a long way behind me ! I have known people go completely broke and have lost their re mortgaged house along with their spose because it is addictive, costs add up when people start paying another 2K or so to go half a second faster rather than actually spending time thinking can they really afford it ?
Motor racing has always been expensive and unless you have a money tree or a job with a large disposable income then you might just as well light the fire with it and be better off
