So, use your imagination man. It doesn't have to be straight M cup or Can Am. Make it what NASCAR once was - take American street cars and soup them up. Besides, there are plenty of millionaires, you just have to get them interested (this is how spoilers got into mainstream racing). Nobody makes money buying race horses, but people still do it.

You can make road courses where you see the whole track (Rolex 24 Hours anyone?). Heck, if they could just lift some of the rules on the new Trans-Am and market it better....

There's no real reason it would have to be expensive anyways. Just say no manufacturer's-cars, and then the expenditures will be limited by how much advertisers value the series. Don't underestimate how much a man can do in his garage with a little ingenuity, $80,000, and good old fashioned American stick-to-it-ness.
