In response to shaken's comments,
Unfortunately we live in the real world .
I assumed real Road Racing Fans would understand that it takes Thousands of £'s to stage a Race Meeting.
The U.G.P takes many thousands of £'s to stage the event.
over £30,000 Insurance Premium Alone.
The money for this has to come from somewhere.
Where else can you sit or stand so close to the action at such high speeds( in EXCESS of 200mph) and absorb the unique atmosphere that is Road Racing.
I agree it is quite expensive if you are bringing the Family along to the U.G.P but as I say the money to stage the event has to come from somewhere.
The U.G.P comes around once a year.
If you don't want to pay There is a BiG TV Company Streaming Live coverage and follow up Shows about a week Later.
I notice you have not mentioned that the Broadcasting or Live Streaming is doing the Sport a lot of damage by deterring spectators from attending these Race Meetings in times of changeable weather for an example.
