Everyone wants to know what it's going to cost to come race with us. We have been crunching numbers to try to make racing as affordable as possible. When you come to Infinity and Hastings they will be the same.
$25 weekend pit pass
Trail Stock, Trail Improved Stock, Stock and Improved Stock $20
Pro stock, Heavy Mod and Factory Mod $30
Shoot Outs $50
Insurance $15 per class, pretty standard at all races
Administration fee $10 per class, some have a $5 fee, this is how we pay the staff and charge nothing else
No daily membership, yearly membership, hot pit passes, crew membership, crew or driver starting line passes, testing fees, or any other kind of hidden fees will be charged. We are going to make this affordable as we can for the racers and still cover our expenses. At the end of the day, we have to make money to keep the association alive. While I know you all realize that, that is why it costs anything but entry fees to race.
At Hastings we will be having a test session all afternoon on Friday that is also free thanks to Bill OHara. No $20 or $40 per sled there either.
So if you were on the fence about coming to our races because of the travel expenses, maybe this will sway your desicion to come out and have some fun with GLDRA. Thanks, TB
looks good Tom you guys are on the right track wish we could make it have fun and see u at hastings.
Tom, this is excellent news. Sure looks like the GLDRA is doing whatever it can to bring more racers out to the track, by keeping costs as low as possible. Nice job!
Vintage Elan Guy Bom Bar Dee Eh! (Clearly Canadian!)

it did say pit pass i thought it was gate fee myself also,getting into the pits should be the same as gate fee since the pits are right off the road
I believe the $25 fee is for the weekend pass through the gate.
I wish Tom and Mark,or for that matter Blackjack or any of the other drag racing sanctioning bodies would list the costs for putting on an average weekend of drag racing. I think a lot of racers would have their eyes opened as to how expensive it is to put these events on.
Trust me I've been to a lot of races and have paid a lot of different fees. This is as cheap as we can do it for now. The $25 is for the racer gate sorry. Vintage, I'm not sure if your intending to post negatively about this like I've seen you do before like about web coverage, but we aren't in this to make money, just cover our costs and grow an association. Unless we can get 300 entries for sure at every race, this is what it's going to cost. Are you coming up there or to any of our races? I welcome you up there to come race with us. I thought it was nice that I let everyone know! TB
everything looks above board, definitly cheaper than usuall,i hope the weather holds out for you and it gets to happen,the track needs to be used and it would be a great opener for the hastings race,wich should be a great event.
Looks good Tom! Hope you guys get a great turnout to get GLDRA off and running! Good luck to all of you making this happen.
