    Any senior drivers on this forum going to Daytona?  Looking at mylaps from the last Man Cup race at Pitt:

    X30 – 4 karts

    Leopard Sr. – 3 karts

    Yamaha Sr. – 4 karts

    Just curious if there will be more Senior entries now that TaG is a combined class and they brought the can back to Yamaha.

    I imagine the new format will renew some interest in the program.  Combine that with the prestige of the Kartweek event and I think the classes should be good sized.  WKA is making positive strides.

    I can’t speak for TaG/Yamaha group, but we are bringing 8 LO206 Senior drivers.

    We had 22 LO206 racers at the last Florida Pro Kart race in Jacksonville and I would expect most would go to Daytona also. Might get a couple of TAGs but no Yamahas from Florida.

    Interesting, I completely forgot they added the L0206 Senior class…  Does anyone know yet what weight they will be running this class at Daytona?

    I heard 375 which makes sense since it’s the gold cup weight. Yes it’s heavy and they’d gain a few entries probably if they lowered the weight but they would lose some too. Figured I’d just say this in advance 😉. I anticipate it to be the most fun race to watch of the weekend.

    375 lbs in LO206 senior.

    375 is up there for smaller drivers, but that seems to be typical weight for that class, so no problem.  Sounds like there could be 30+ entries.  Will definitely be interesting to watch!  Margay has their arrive and drive LO206 program scheduled for Daytona, too, should add to the list as well…

    My son is running the Pro TaG class. We had around 16 or 17 karts in Daytona last year as I recall. That was just X30 and the Leopard class was bigger. With the combination of the two and new format I’m hoping to see at least 30.
