Just was reading some.

Mark Marquez crashed thirteen times in 2015. Thirteen. That has GOT to hurt.

Moto 3 (250) costs around $275,000 per season to race. Good grief...

$275K per season for a World Championship series doesn't sound like that much to me. Is that just the cost of the lease on the bike?

I've heard of a top local guy running WMRRA/OMMRA races that just his tire bill was 5k a month.

That was a single bike in Moto 3 for a season. The article stated the Moto 3 teams charge around $450,000 for a season for a ride. IF you qualify to be on the team...
