I thought I would try to crowdsource an answer to the age old question of how many active kart racers there are in the USA.
My approach is to ask everyone to reply with the series or club track at which you race and provide the “average” number or range of karters per class present on race day.
As an example, I race at the F Series in the northeast and there are regularly the following number of karts participating. I am primarily interested in “sizing” the sprint (non-oval) 2 cycle / 4 cycle market in the USA, but road race karting numbers would also be interesting. That maybe a bit of a tougher nut to crack as I believe there are more multi-class participants in road racing.
F Series - classes
F125 (Leopard only) - 22-30 entries/race
Mini Rok 10-15
Formula Jr Tag 12-22
Formua Tag 15-40
Tag Cadet 10-15
Shifter Stock Honda / Rok / KZ 15-30
Let me know what you think and I will share a final estimate with all.
