Its a close call, i suppose. I don't pay much for licence and insurance for this thing. I suppose i also underestimated my usage. I realize that going to 3 events per year doesn't mean 3 trips per year. I also went to two racing schools in the spring and I'll be going to an open-lapping day in two weeks. I also used it to move last year and I am using it to move again in a few months... the moves are short trips, though.

In retrospect, it gets about 2x the usage I described.

One MAAAJOR reason why i like this cube van for hauling my car is that when i arrive at the track at midnight the night before in the pouring rain or fall cold, I just have to hop in the back where my bed is made up and me and the car can sleep comfortably together out of the elements. My car has no windows, so keeping it inside is a plus.
