Official Statement From IAME USA Regarding 2021 Updates To New X30 Pipe And X30 Configuration
Monday, 18 January 2021 11:54
As many may remember, with the reconfiguration of the IAME distribution in North America in 2014, we put forth a commitment to freeze the engine configuration for seven years. This coming 2021 racing season will be our seventh year (*after a one-year grace period for COVID-19.) We have listened to our engine builders and customers and will be offering the following changes moving forward in 2021. This introduction also comes in connection with the struggle to get these older models during COVID-19.

Before implementing these changes moving forward we want to remind everyone of the impetus for any such changes. As we pledged in 2014, reliability and customer satisfaction remain our guiding principles here at IAME USA. Any new ideas are in the interest of those two facets, and as always — the motivation for introducing any such change is always parity and value for the racer.

Last week in Florida at the SKUSA Winter Series, SKUSA Mexico brought their key personnel to train on site in all major departments.

In an effort to launch the series with the best chances for success, SKUSA is being very proactive with respects to COVID-19 mitigation. In an effort to be fully compliant with Mexico’s “code red” status. Effective January 10th 2021, Mexico City will begin a mandatory lockdown for all non-essential activity. Cases are spiking in the in the nation’s capital city and decreasing bandwidth in hospitals.

It’s been over four months since the Superkarts! USA staff was trackside for one of their national events, going all the way back to the Pro Tour SummerNationals in August at New Castle Motorsports. When the calendar turned over to a new year, SKUSA pressed the reset button and packed up their circus at its Temecula, CA headquarters and headed east for the fourth edition of their Winter Series at AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires. The opening round of the two-weekend, four-event series was completed on Saturday under ideal weather conditions in south Florida, and multi-time SKUSA champion Ryan Norberg looked to have stolen the show in the X30 Senior main event, coming from 12th on the grid to score the win. A pushback bumper penalty dropped him to fourth, and elevated Aaron Benoit (Tony Kart) to the big victory. In the KA100 Senior class, Brandon Lemke (Merlin) emerged with the win in a thrilling battle with Hannah Greenemeier (Kosmic), while Kai Sorensen (Parolin) notched his first SKUSA victory with a strong performance in X30 Junior. All in all, penalties played quite the role in the overall outcome.

Norberg was on his game from the get-go, timing in second to Alessandro de Tullio (Parolin) in Rolison Performance Group X30 qualifying, but all did not go perfectly for the four-time Pro Tour champ. Norberg bolted away from the grid for the Prefinal and led the field for an additional pace lap, and was it with a 10-second penalty for ‘manipulating the start’. This dropped him to 12th for the start of the 22-lap final, but he was quickly on the move, advancing forward to take the lead on lap 15. Arias Deukmedjian (Kart Republic) was all over Norberg during the final laps and was primed to pounce on the final circuit. With the leader running the defensive lines through the hairpins, Deukmedjian got a strong run out of the second hairpin to put slightly ahead of Norberg heading to the left-hand turn 10. Deukmedjian was on the outside and tried to move to the apex, but it appeared as though Norberg still had a significant position and contact was made. Deukmedjian went off-track as Norberg continued on to the win, and he then came back on-track in what the officials deemed an unsafe manner.
