Important Announcement for TaG Junior Competitors
Monday, 23 February 2009 20:47
SKUSA has been concerned for some time about the performance level of the Leopard Junior.  Results from recent races where Leopard Juniors and KF3 classes were run at the same time indicate that the Leopard with 30mm restricted header had performance equal to or perhaps better than the KF3 class. For those of you not familiar with KF3, it is the International Junior class that replaced JICA.
 
SKUSA feels that this performance level is not appropriate for the majority of Junior competitors who might be transitioning from slower classes such as Yamaha Junior Superbox or HPV Junior.
 
With this in mind, we are implementing the use of the 25mm Factory header instead of the 30mm header.  Note that we have done – in conjunction with other groups – considerable testing of a number of combinations (including headers and carburetors), and feel that this is the most cost-effective solution at this time. We do reserve the right to implement additional changes should this change not result in the desired slowing of the class.
 
Both importers have indicated they have sufficient stocks of the 25mm header to supply dealers and competitors.
 
Feel free to contact me with your comments.

EKN Awards 2008: Event of the Year - SKUSA SuperNationals XII
Friday, 20 February 2009 15:16
New to the eKartingNews.com Awards in 2008 is the ‘Event of the Year’ category. Like the EKN Awards program itself, this new honor has been re-kindled from the pages of Super Kart Illustrated as in the past, the magazine’s staff would list their selections of the top-10 events of the previous year. Now positioned as part of the EKN Awards, the site’s viewers submitted their favorite events and the top-five were then awarded a nomination. After long discussions among the website’s staff, the National Guard SKUSA SuperNationals XII has earned the honor of being named the inaugural winner of the award.

Considered by many as the biggest race in the history of the sport, the ’08 edition of the SKUSA SuperNationals had the prestige, the venue, star power and an unrivaled entry list that elevated the event to a brand new level. The 12th edition of the race was highlighted by a return to the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and a total entry count of roughly 400 competitors in 10 classes. A number of international drivers, mostly entered in the SuperPro category, made the journey to Vegas and a few of them took home the spoils in their respective classes. The TaG Senior category reached 100 entries alone, while the battle in the S3 main event may go down in history as the best shifter kart race ever run. The event was capped off with a Sunday event AfterParty celebration atop the Rio in the hotel’s VooDoo Lounge, which overlooks the Vegas strip.  Read Full Story on EKN.
 
ProKart Challenge South Revamps for Round Two at Willow Springs
Wednesday, 18 February 2009 23:06
One thing that can be said about the Superkarts! USA organization and its ProKart Challenge South program is the success of their open policy of feedback from their racers and teams. SKUSA President Tom Kutscher and his staff have always taken into consideration the needs of their racers, and the 2009 season will be no different. As the program prepares for the upcoming round at the Willow Springs Raceway kart track in Rosamond, CA on February 28, they have made some improvements to the program by adjusting the minimum weight in the S4 class and introducing the KF2 program to the series.

Following a driver weight survey held at the opening round at CalSpeed Karting on January 24, the ProKart Challenge has made the decision to raise the minimum weight in the S4 class from 405 lbs. back to its previous 415 lbs, and has even added an S4-Magnum class in the Southern region – with the minimum weight set at 440 lbs – which has already seen strong response to date. These changes will be implemented at the Willow Springs event and will be in place for the balance of the ‘09 PKC South season. ProKart Challenge also surveyed the PKC North competitors in the S4 class from ’08, and has made the same weight adjustment to 415 lbs. for that division.  Read Full Story on EKN.
