SuperKarts! USA Renews Partnership With Alpinestars For Multi-Year Deal
Sunday, 16 February 2020 18:14

Superkarts! USA has confirmed a multi-year partnership with Alpinestars, a worldwide leader in racing and safety gear. As the ‘official racewear of SKUSA,’ Alpinestars will continue to have a trackside presence and direct hand in ensuring the highest safety standards across all facets of 2020 SKUSA competition. The renewal furthers the initiatives of last year, which saw meaningful strides in enhancing and enforcing proper safety attire for competitors.

SKUSA shares the excitement of the alliance, and the push towards even safer racing. “Great competition is one thing, but I’m a real stickler for driver safety,” explained series principal Tom Kutscher. “Alpinestars’ products are second to none, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner as we usher in a new decade of Superkarts! USA racing.”

SKUSA To Allow KZ Engines To Run Alongside The 175SSE In Shifter Classes At The 2020 SKUSA ProTour And ProKart Challenge
Wednesday, 12 February 2020 10:05

With the 2020 incarnations of the SKUSA ProTour and ProKart Challenge just weeks away, Superkarts! USA is excited to confirm the expansion of their shifter kart classes to now include the popular KZ engine format. The move comes after careful deliberation between both factions of IAME USA, and valuable input from teams throughout the SKUSA paddock.

“We feel we have a shifter kart engine that’s second to none,” explained SKUSA’s principal Tom Kutscher. “That said, we would be lying if we said it’s been a perfect rollout. Various issues hindered the format at the very beginning, including an unfortunate one with the Tillotson carburetor. To their credit, they have worked tremendously hard alongside us to rectify the issues and we still consider them a valuable partner in the program. In recent months, the 175SSE has been rock solid and drivers continue to praise its durability and longevity. On the event side however, we are still a promotion company. Our customers’ input matters the most and we strive to be as inclusive as we can.”

The Superkarts! USA Winter Series is wrapping up this weekend at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires, and the third round of the four-race series on Saturday provided some incredible action. The 12-turn, 0.7-mile track is being run in the clockwise direction for this doubleheader, and the technical nature of this layout provided more than enough of a challenge for the drivers in the paddock this weekend. Piquet Sports’ Olin Galli (CRG) proved to be the man to beat in X30 Senior, taking the lead midway through the race before pulling away to score the victory. In the X30 Junior and KA100 Junior classes, Italian phenom Andrea Kimi Antonello steered his KartSport North America Kart Republic chassis to dominant wins to extend his victory streak to six straight races to begin the 2020 SKUSA season. Antonelli has not yet been beat in the Winter Series this year and has all but clinched both class championships.

Galli qualified on pole for the Rolison Performance Group X30 Senior class, and led early in the Prefinal before RPG’s Ryan Norberg (Kosmic) assumed the point on lap three, holding the position to take the win to earn the inside front row starting spot for the 22-lap main event. After the initial opening lap chaos that saw Arias Deukmedjian jumping the point, Galli quickly assumed the lead and was never challenged after that, leaving those behind him to fight for the final podium positions. A scrap for the position developed between Norberg and Deukmedjian that came to head on the final lap, as Deukmedjian was able to overtake the point leader and four-time SKUSA Pro Tour for the position. It was a strong performance by Deukmedjian, but the podium for Norberg was his third straight and has positioned him solidly to defend his Winter Series championship on Sunday. Solo Kart USA’s Louie Westover earned his second top-five finish with a fourth-place result while impressive rookie senior Luca Mars (Redspeed) capped the top-five.
