Jen,
 
Several of the IRRA® Premier Races have had more entries than that.

I dunno, Greg, the ISRA race had 170 separate people registered. I don't think any us race had anything like this in years, if ever.

I think some of the scale ScaleAuto, etc., races are bigger as well with more actual racers.

Those 120 entry races were "capped" at 120, also...  Without the cap, most, if not all of them would most certainly have been higher, possibly much higher...

 

And, yes, that was Mike.

Looks like the Czechs like their cars fast, and their tracks flat.   :)

Which IRRA Premier races had 500+ entries in four classes?

KVP, I misinterpreted Jen's post and therefore my comment is wrong.

 

Here in the states "entries" usually refers to the number of cars entered, not the number of individual racers.

Yea...  With 3 classes at 120 (Actually, I think F1 was at like 118 or something, just short), and the Production class having 88 teams of two, I believe, that would make the 440-450, or there abouts, car count wise.  Not sure what the actual driver count was, since some ran one class, some all four, and a bunch in between...
