Brent you may already know but autox codrivers often pay in some form but it's often informal and obviously less risky

Like An said, co-driving is very common at auto-x. The most common terms that I know of from a few years back was that the guest pays the owner's entry for the day, maybe with a few more $$ to offset tire wear. For more than single-event deals it's up to the people involved, often with payments meant to offset tires, towing costs, or whatever is relevant to that owner & renter.
Also like he said, lower risk to the car compared to r-x. Anecdotally there are only a few cases across the country each year of seriously pranged cars in autocross. I haven't done r-x (yet) and don't know whether co-drives are common or how you'd deal with the worst case outcomes, so it's difficult to know how to spread the risk.
At the DirtFish rally school they supply caged cars and your fee includes a cost of insurance. (from their website, "All of our standard programs now come with crash damage insurance included, so you will not be liable for any crash damage, unless we deem your actions to be outside the realm of normal training." Of course their 2 hour course starts at $475, up to 3 days for $3900, so a little more damage is occurring and being handled by your payments I would guess.

Paul T. Ford body, Yamaha power - describes my car pretty well, too! Smile Returned to racing the STi-STU but still that #35 you love
