the events are run by the local renault lot - so renault uk in our case. as i understand it, they mostly pay for the event costs itself and put on additional entertainment etc to go with the travelling wsr circus of attractions (bouncy castles, kids entertainment, car displays, driving demos, etc). different countries put different amounts of effort behind it, for example the russians were pretty keen and had proper entertainment on a stage. the germans had a small fairground type effort. the french weirdly aren't that bothered, the round at ricard was well attended but most of the other events at ricard had more side attractions.

it appears the only way that it could be run here because of the scary cost of circuit hire/people control/the popularity of the event being its worst enemy is by charging what is a fair amount for entry in relation to other motorsport in this country. but it says a lot doesn't it?

(incidentally, please continue with the thread hijacking - all adds context to the entire point of discussion!)
