Registration for Superkarts! USA Florida Winter Series Opens December 1
Thursday, 30 November 2017 12:20


The 2017 season for Superkarts! USA came to a close as the sun set behind the Nevada mountains on SuperSunday, with the final checkered flag waving at the SuperNationals 21 in Las Vegas on November 19. The organization welcomed over 500 drivers from around the world to close what has been a record-breaking season – with another grand event competing around a new course alongside the famous Las Vegas Strip highlighted by the 10 drivers to score the victories. There is very little time to reflect on the past 11 months, as the 2018 season is quickly approaching with a much earlier start for SKUSA compared to year’s past.

Both new and familiar grounds are on the horizon for Superkarts! USA. The launch of the new SKUSA Winter Series takes the organization back to Florida in a two-event, four-round championship to serve as the unofficial ‘spring training’ program for the 2018 season. All five IAME and four Stock Honda categories from the SKUSA Pro Tour will be included, along with two local option Briggs 206 classes (both Senior and Master) to round out the class structure. This is an adjustment from the previous announcement about the Winter Series classes, due to significant input from the racers.

2018 Membership and Kart Number Changes
Sunday, 26 November 2017 11:45
With growth comes a few challenges and difficult choices. SuperKarts! USA hasn’t been a stranger to either of these things during the past few seasons. After several lengthy discussions, we’ve decided on the following changes to better serve our growing customer base and expanding promotional efforts.

Calendar-Year Memberships
Starting in 2018, all SKUSA memberships will be good for the calendar year only. This means January 1st through December 31st instead of an expiration date 12 months after purchase. In order to simplify this transition, we will do the following.
  • If your current expiration date is between Jan 1 and June 30, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will only be $50.
  • If your current expiration date is between July 1 and December 31, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will be free.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you MUST submit an online renewal during the renewal periods described below.
  • The transitional renewal period for members will be December 1st through January 31th.
  • The transitional late renewal period will be February 1st through February 15th. Late renewals will cost $125.
  • Renewals after February 15th will be treated as new memberships.
  • New memberships will be $150.
The standard renewal rate for 2019 Memberships will then be $100, and the standard renewal period will then be December 1st through Jan 15th and the standard late renewal period will be January 16th through January 31st.

CIK Kart Numbers
Starting in 2018, SKUSA will be standardizing to CIK number specifications. This means solid yellow number panels and solid black numbers for all classes, 1 digit for champions, and 2 and 3 digits depending on your class. No more letter designators. Please refer to SKUSA Rule 20.2.2 for the dimensional specifics. Our use of the video marshalling system is the main catalyst for this change, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the difficulty of our track officials reading some of our color combinations and your custom number panels.

IAME Classes Shifter Classes
Micro Swift - 10-99
Mini Swift - 100-299 (200-299 reserved for overflow)
X30 Junior - 700-799
X30 Senior - 300-499 (400-499 reserved for overflow)
X30 Master - 500-599
S1 - 100-199
S2 - 200-299
S3 - 300-399
S4 - 400-499
S5 - 500-599
S4SM - 600-699
KZ (SuperNats) - 4-99

Reserved Numbers
I know what everyone is now thinking, and there is no easy way around it. We will no longer be reserving race numbers with your memberships. Each class will be assigned a block of numbers and when you enter your first race of any series you will pick from any available numbers in that pool. That will then be your “reserved” number for the rest of that series. Thankfully, MotorsportReg allows you to pick numbers in real time. You are likely to have a different number in the Winter Series, PKC and ProTour, so first come, first serve.
 
Superkarts! USA Announces 2017 Hall of Fame Inductees
Wednesday, 15 November 2017 12:51
Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce this year’s inductees to the SKUSA Hall of Fame. Veteran driver and multi-time SuperNationals winner Bonnier Moulton and long-time SKUSA official and Regional Director Terry Riggins will join the Hall of Fame in the second year of program. Last year, in conjunction with the 20th running of the SuperNationals, SKUSA named its first induction class, which included founder Don Janowski, former president Jim Murley, veteran driver Alan Rudolph and team owner Greg Bell.

“When you look at the 25-year history of Superkarts! USA, there’s a very small group of people who have been involved with the organization for over 20 years,” offered Tom Kutscher, SKUSA CEO. “Bonnier was a player from the very beginning of the ProMoto Tour. He’s raced in every SuperNationals and is part of a short list of three-time winners. Terry is part of SKUSA’s foundation and has played pretty much every role within the organization from driver to race director to regional promoter. These guys are ‘legend’ material when it comes to SKUSA history.”

Class Structure for 2018 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Confirmed
Tuesday, 14 November 2017 00:00

With the sport in a continuing phase of evolution, Superkarts! USA has its eye focused on providing as much stability as possible for its customers. SKUSA’s move to the IAME product line for the single-speed classes have done just that, solidifying that segment of their program. Heading into the 2018 season, SKUSA would like to confirm that all five IAME categories will be back on the Pro Tour. For the coming season, they will be joined for the ninth straight year by the Stock Honda as the gearbox engine of choice. The primary adjustment will be a move to a pair of combined Stock Honda classes for the Pro Tour – Pro Shifter and Master Shifter – matching the approach that will be used in the inaugural SKUSA Winter Series in January and February. For 2018, S1 Pro and S2 Semi-Pro will be combined in favor of a single Pro Shifter class. S4 Master and S4 Super Master will race together as Master Shifter, but will be scored separately and will celebrate post-race with their own podium presentations.
