Default Key West or New Orleans

Aside from the APBA vs. SBI stuff, which was the better place to go to the races - Key Wesy or New Orleans - and why?

Key West hands down if you are there to race.We have had some calm water the last year but the norm is BIG BAD STUFF.If you win in KW you know you have done somthing right and so do your fellow racers.KW seperates the real talant of teams.Just thinking of the heratage there with all the legands of the sport and what they all have done in there days gives me goose bumps.If some how you could take the fans on a one lap ride during a race and turn into the wall do a 1 mile strech in 6-10 seas and then back into the harbor to look to your right and see thousands of fans cheering you on you wouldnt have to ask which was better.Your choice is a lake or that ride.

KW is an incredible venue. The course is a racers dream and town is a fans dream. Logistically it's fan and racer friendly. Walk to the pits or walk to a bar, stumble home...

Key West is best for spectators, but there is a downfall. They needed alot more restrooms, and food vendors. Maybe bleachers would have been good too.

Key West! I went to New Orleans this year simply because I could drive and save money not having to fly. It was a so-so racecourse and a few good parties. Can't compete with sitting on the pier watching them run in that turquoise blue water in Key West. Bourbon Street may have something over Duval though.
