For a crit I wouldn't get it, although an open Masters race (p1234) would probably get allocated more time than a Cat 4 race.
I actually short the Masters (M45 Cat 1234) versus the Cat 3-4s, giving the Masters 25 laps vs 30 for the 3-4s.
If there's a Cat 1-2 M45 rider I would rather them race in the P123 race (45 laps on the same day of racing) or do both (70 laps). There are plenty that do both the M45/P123 (70 laps) or the 3-4/P123 (75 laps). At that point an extra 5 laps doesn't seem like much.
This is on a 0.9 mile course.
