International Kart Federation Announces Early Steps for Future
Friday, 11 May 2018 11:11

The International Kart Federation is the world’s longest standing karting organization, with over sixty years of racing in its history. Having recently joined forces with Superkarts! USA, the new partnership is slowly taking shape to begin the next chapter in the IKF’s long and fabled story.

Superkarts! USA has been working tirelessly with the IKF to close down their previous operations and simultaneously create new local and regional programs that continue to serve by introducing the sport to new drivers. “This all materialized incredibly quickly,” said SKUSA principal Tom Kutscher. “The opportunity for unification came in the midst of our regular SKUSA competition programs, so my staff and I have been working double duty to manage the IKF coming into the fold.”

For the fourth time in Superkarts! USA history, the SKUSA Pro Tour is set to travel to the Phoenix Kart Racing Association facility. The ‘Formula K Raceway’ in Glendale, Arizona is set to host the organization on May 4-6 for the second event of the 2018 season – the SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals. The six-round championship program that is the 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour began at the NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana in March at the WinterNationals. Over 200 drivers took part in the 2018 opening event, with similar numbers expected for Arizona. The middle two rounds of the series are set for the PKRA facility, where the organization has visited three times in the previous eight years of the SKUSA Pro Tour (2012, 2015, and 2016).

Superkarts! USA Officially Addresses Findings Of Illegal And Deliberately Modified Engines From SuperNationals 21
Wednesday, 31 January 2018 15:25

At the heart of every competitor is the desire to win. Unfortunately, this desire sometimes leads some people to adopt a win-at-all-costs mentality, with some engine builders, parents, and drivers willing to sacrifice their ethics and their children's reputations. In turn, this mentality finds a partner and we end up having the nature and type of cheating found in the micro and mini classes last year - culminating in public and worldwide humiliation of child competitors at the 2017 SuperNationals in Las Vegas.

Superkarts! USA Unites with International Kart Federation
Tuesday, 23 January 2018 10:25

Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce the ground-breaking confirmation that they are uniting with the International Kart Federation and will merge the historic national organization with the SKUSA family. SKUSA owner Tom Kutscher has been in talks with IKF management for some time, and the continuing evolution of the sport has paved the way for this new partnership. The IKF currently sanctions over 50 clubs, three regional series and four Grand Nationals in the United States and Canada. All effort will be made to keep business as usual, with the added horsepower of the Superkarts! USA staff aiding in future growth and stability. Current sanctioning will continue for 2018 as SKUSA evaluates any new approaches for the future. Memberships, track sanctioning and plans for Grand National events for 2018 will continue uninterrupted and further information will be made available soon.

2018 Membership and Kart Number Changes
Sunday, 26 November 2017 10:45
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

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.
