There's different promoters renting out the track every weekend damn near for HPDE's(high performance driving events), they charge anywhere from $250 to $500 for a full day, which is 5 or so 20 minute sessions

I used to own a motorcycle trackday company. It always cracked me up when people would pay a couple hundred bucks for one of those silly parade laps at Laguna Seca when you can ride for a whole day for not a lot more.

We did three 20 minute sessions an hour, rotating between the A group (licensed racers and super fast riders), B group (fast intermediates) and C group (I bought a motorcycle that will break any speed limit in the USA in first gear... WTF do I do with it?). Riders got seven sessions a day: three in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Photographers always wanted to shoot from there. I would only let one in at a time... and made them promise to send me their best shot.
