I get where you’re coming from Brian. I love watching races almost as much as racing in them myself, but I think you’re going after the wrong class to kill here.

I work at Atlanta Motorsports Park, and we only introduced the LO206 class in April of this year. The first race had four drivers, the next six, the one after had seven, and by our November round we were attracting out-of-town racers as well as a solid regular group, topping our kart count at 14.

Unlike Yamaha or PRD, this class is the real deal when it comes to affordability and low-engine maintenance and tweaking. Unfortunately, there are still a couple of things you can do the motor, but nothing is perfect. It is by far the best entry-level class we have to offer and if Nicholas can keep pushing it and get it as a class in a couple of club rounds, I don’t see why he wouldn’t be able to exponentially grow the group.
