This is too bad to hear. Especailly after Aston Martin, Chevy, Saleen, Dodge, and possibly Ford have announced their intentions to join the series. Hopefully, Lamborghini will reconsider its factory backing procedure.
Champion Audi spent $2 million US for one race the 24 hours of Le Mans. This did not include the cost of the car. The cost of shipping the tools they needed over from the US was greater than buying them new in Europe which they did instead. I bet with cars, trucks etc. these guys spent at least 3 million. Remember Ferrari spends 300 Million a year racing F1. There is a Great article in last months Car and Driver by a friend of mine Ted West about the costs of running at Le Mans and Champion Audi's Excellent adventure over there this year.jerseylaw said:This really is a shame that they’re pulling the program, I watching when he spun out on the oil and got stuck in sand.

How much do you think it costs just for the start up of a team, not taking into account track/race fees, and things of such nature. Or what process would one have to go about to do so.
