Costings

Car preparation: 

At the very minimum any car that should be used for Motor Racing will require an external battery master switch, electric fuel pump, front and rear towing eyelets, a fire extinguisher, a rear facing red warning light, a roll cage, race seat and harness, throttle return springs and tyres recognised as suitable for competition use by the RACMSA.

The regulations for HSCC circuit racing permit a certain amount of modification to the engine, suspension & brakes, but many things have to be left as standard.

Obviously to be able to challenge the front runners in the class, then money has to be spent on car development.
