The engine and transmission are incredibly expensive to rebuild - the engine once per season and it's a good thing he has lots of money and a need to spend it all.

I suspect an overhaul of that 32 valve monster in that GTP car on BAT would be 50 to 100k. Gearbox would be 30k if you can find parts - that's the biggest problem with those gearboxes, spares sometimes have to be fabricated, not cheap - but easier these days if you can image it and load it in a cad file, then submit to one of the online machine shops, they'll quote it and ma chine the part pretty quickly, but won't be cheap.

Tires are likely 3k or more per set, you'll need a set per weekend unless you're just out playing around. Race fuel is 11 to 12 bucks a gallon, likely go through 100 gallons or more a weekend is doing a test day to get everything working again after the last weekend. Then there's brakes, oil etc. and if you crunch something, get out the platinum visa

First race for this car was the 1988 IMSA Columbus 500. Bet you didn’t know that race even existed. 500 km on a street course set up in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Car finished 4th. Race only lasted a few years before promoters couldn’t raise enough money to continue. Used the old Veterans Memorial auditorium and parking lot as the race paddock.

This car just sold for more than twice the total purse for all the races that weekend.
