This is true whether you are a young driver or a more mature enthusiast with new found disposable income. Spectators get to know the drivers and cars, which also assists drivers in finding regional sponsorship.
The one circuit championships at Castle Combe, arguably the most successful in the country, attract full grids even though many national championships struggle to achieve double figures. Grouping races in one area reduces transport costs, which both novices and experienced drivers find particularly attractive.
