Im interested in getting into racing, but have some doubts about it becoming a reality. mostly financial. not really financially inable, but just weighing out if its worth it. I plan to go do some corner work this summer to just get a little involved, and come out to bb etc. but here's some q's for you racers about sponsors(by "sponsor" i mean free stuff, not dicounting "sponsors"):
how much do you guys budget for racing(parts, practice, membership, tires, etc.)
how long did it take to get your first sponsor?
how much support did they actually give you?
is there any reasonable thought to believing i too may one day be sponsored?
how long did it take you to get to "pro"?
how much time do you spend promoting sponsors?
i understand there are many factors that determine the outcome of these q's. just answer for how it worked for you, please.
