WEC Freight costs to teams?

I am always curious about the behind the scenes things in all motorsporta.

The other year at Le Mans and seeing all the equipment most of the Teams have at their disposal there, P cars and GT's. It got me to wondering how much it costs each team to take the same equipment to the WEC International races in Ameica and Asia?

Do the teams ger subsidized on the freight, is there any sort of package price? As I would imagine the freight bill could very quickly become one of the bigger items in a team's season budget!

Any one have any ideas on this? How much does all this stuff weigh anyway? One assumes there has to be a good freight rate for the teams, or they would not bother going?

I think all fly-away rounds are handled by the series, so there is no specific fee.

Cars and equipment will be air-freighted from Europe to Mexico City, via four 747s, which will then fly to Austin.

“We’re trying to help this way, that’s the reason we decided to use the fee we receive from Mexico to pay all the freight from Europe to Mexico. It will be free for the teams. We’ll take charge of all the plane and freight costs.

Neveu said the additional round will have no impact on transport costs to teams, with the series using the event’s sanctioning fee to cover air-freight costs from Europe.

Also - Here is a 2014 piece published in Porsche News Room providing some insight on the logistics for the Porsche Team (which I also find interesting).
