So, how effective is 450 racing in GB? Some people here in the US believe it is too expensive and destructive on the engines.

Taking a Moto X 450 out the dirt, dressing it up in new clothes and spending time developing it is never going to be cheap! However stick to a regular engine maintainance program, don't rev the engine to destruction and you should get a seasons racing on a resonable budget.
Sticking to the standard engine format with a power limit ceiling of 55bhp helps.

So how come you don't just buy a SV650 and ride that?

True a SV650 in Minitwins or a Honda CB500 in their championship is a cheaper solution to getting out on track, however for those who have enjoyed single racing know there is nothing quite like riding/racing a 'Mono'. I've rode almost everything there is to ride over my career, but if you said "OK Mike, you only ever can do one class which one would it be" - answer Supermono.

Interesting, I wouldn't have thought the engine type would be such an influence on your choice of racing class. But then, I'm a spectator, so what do I know?
