The section of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was the northwest sector – utilizing portions of the Grand Prix layout, along with access roads, and just a bit of the famous 2.5-mile oval. TaG and shifterkarts were employed, with a number of experienced racers taking part in the test. As Burrell mentioned, the course was roughly at 1-mile long, and the common feedback from the racers was about the very fast layout.
Any idea what kart classes might be there. I’m looking to buy a kart, one that I can run anywhere in the USA. I’m guessing shifter is about all sanction bodies? Any other that might be in all at a cheaper kart?
I would guess TaG, Yamaha, LO206, and Shifter classes will be run at Indy.
Choosing a kart or class based on what is run or popular throughout the country is a losing proposition. The sport is just too fragmented. That said, LO206 is probably the only class ran nation wide under the same engine rules with good numbers no matter where you go. Get a LO206 and have fun.
