Also would it be possible to come and do say 3 or 4 rounds in the year as I probably won't be able to make all the rounds due to working as a mechanic for a race team.
For the regulations, take a look at http://www.barc.net/regional_centres...9RegsVer01.pdf
for entry fees, take a look at http://www.barc.net/regional_centres...EntryForms.pdf
Registration is about £15 for the year (must be the cheapest in the country) costs depend on how much you want to spend, and how competitive you want to be - can be probably the cheapest series in the uk.
If you are looking at 3 or 4 rounds in T4, you could probaby make yours tyres last years, not rounds !!!!
I've been running an uncompetitive Rover in T1 ( temporarily stopped until I get another job) and it's taken me ages to wear out the ****e tyres that I bought in error (888's are the way to go) apart from that, it's just been brake pads and odds and sods.
Car was bought to run in a German series, but my Astra dropped a valve and I haven't fixed it yet, so Rover was the only car to come out to play in.
If you want more specific running costs, pm me, as my wife may read this
I can tell you how much to run an uncompetitive car - someone will probably be along later to tell you how much it costs to run something competitive.
