racing series transportation

F1 Spanish GP qualifying is on Speed right now and it got me thinking. What does NASCAR/Moto GP/F1/etc do about transporting their cars/bikes from race to race? NASCAR has 40 something cars in each race and they have back up cars too but they're testing and qualifying very shortly after last week's race so a) they have an ass load of cars and leap frog a week ahead b) they fly the cars around but that seems way too excessive (80+ cars each week). What about Moto GP, they're skipping all over Europe but bikes are quite a deal smaller, so they fly them around right? F1?

anybody know...just random insomniac curiousity

Napcar teams usually have 3 cars in a trailer (depending on trailer) they take to races. Cars they qualify in are the actual race cars. Testing cars are usually left at their shops. Isnt a big deal.

MotoGP/WSBK and F1 ship them in special airline containers for overseas. I think most big teams have transporters stationed at the various venues. They usually have 2 weeks between events compared to napcars weekly.
