Default What's the most popular Touring Class at your track?

What classes of touring are mosr popular at your track(s)?

I plan to run some outdoor (asphalt) touring this year - I only have a little experience on carpet indoor touring. We have a local outdoor track that is just about to start the season and I was curious what classes are most popular around the country (world for that matter).

oops - let me re-read and re-phrase

The most popular class is Stock...by far. I think Mod is not as popular outdoors if the traction is not up to snuff. We also have a 19T spec class with Yokomo truck bodies growing. That looks pretty fun. They handle suprisingly well and the speed of the 19T is just enough to not feel a lack of speed like with Stock.

Maybe I didn't phrase the question properly... what are the most popular DIVISIONAL CLASSES (not car brands, models, types).

Example: Stock, Modified, Arcor, etc.

1) Electric Stock Sedan (27T Motors)

2) 1/10th Nitro Sedan (Sportsman is the largest)

3) Tamiya F-201 (Sport tuned motors only)

4) 19T Spec class (any body, but the Euro Trucks are popular)

At our Large Permanent On-road tracks, 1/10th Nitro Sedan is by Far the most popular class.
