No worries, I think all of this is very relevant to the OP seeing as we are discussing the racing and costs involved. Thanks for sharing these prices thou. It gives very good perspective for me at least

Welcome to ElMoto, Art! I'm delighted to hear about riding electric and your racing experience firsthand. Thanks for joining us.
Thank you for the clarification Art. I wouldn't have made such a statement if I didn't think my source was correct. My apologies. Just got off the phone with Azhar, and can't say much, but I do want to clarify one thing, I misunderstood Azhar this spring and when he said "buy in" he didn't mean the club had to purchase a rules package, he meant 'buying into' the consept. That was my fault, and I apologize. They do have a budget number they are looking at for the eSS from a racer's/team's perspective that is the cost of an entire season of racing plus the cost of buying a bike. It sounds reasonable, but I'm not a racer.
They are very much looking for feedback from the racer's and teams (and anyone really) and said to get in contact with through the webpage, twitter, and Facebook. There's an announcement coming soon, so I'm on an embargo on the details until then. But it doesn't sound like much has changed at all.
