    To all you karters with experiance at big events …

    I’m a local club racer who is new to the sport. I’m lucky enough to race at NOLA in New Orleans. I can race Rotax Senior or Rotax Masters (normally Masters). I noticed there are 26 masters racing in the Grand National’s and 72 Seniors.

    I’m trying to get a feel for how many partacipants they may have for the Pan-Am event. I tried to look up past results for kart counts and was unsuccesful. I know there will be a lot of seniors. But no idea of the masters.

    Anybody have a crystal ball on what the attendance may be for the Pan-Am race at NOLA??

    Not sure on the Pan-Am, but I’m guessing Senior will be stacked with talent as drivers who are qualified for the Grand Finals will use it to test, while those not yet qualified will race to earn one of the final tickets to the show in November. Masters, I would guess to have about 10-20 entries.

    Looking at MyLaps, I’m only seeing 37 Senior entries at the Grand Nationals, not 72.

    Then again there are only 26 Masters listed as well, like you said. Generally, Senior Max tends to have larger grids than Masters.

    Look again. You will find two groups? Unless I am looking at this wrong??

    With it being a great practice prior to the grand finals,  and it being an open event with a grand finals ticket, you can expect drivers from all over to enter.  It should be the best pan am event to daye.,

    Senior Max has 37 in the Final, but that is after the field is trimmed down. They started with 70+ and had to qualify through the Heats to make the finals. Same is true for Junior Max. Master Max hasn’t had enough entrants to require the trimming before finals, so all Master Max drivers make the show.

    Not true. I was there. Only 37 Seniors. They were divided to 4 groups and each pair was 18/19 drivers in 3 heats for each group. This is not changing total.

    59 entries in Juniors.

    Hmm, I stand corrected. I thought there were more.
