Well then why has the You Yangs had so much development (money going back into it) and Mt Beauty not changed at all? It does cost a lot to run Mt Beauty I know, all the buses and that, BUT... the recent rounds there have pulled numbers around the 300 mark! There's a lot of money in that, $30,000 in entry fees!
I wouldn't go assuming that thats what is being made out of races, I'm not 100% sure but I don't think that much profit is being made, don't forget all of the things that need to be paid for.. not just transport, there is timing and heaps of other stuff that the money goes towards. I have seen the comitee's of the clubs at work, people just have to stop jumping to conclusions and thinking they are getting ripped off or what not... the people who run these events want them to be as cheap as possible for you..
