The 14th season of the California ProKart Challenge is set to begin February 2-3 at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park.

The 2018 season for the California PKC program is a year of additions and changes based on the progression of the SKUSA organization and the sport itself. Among the changes include an expansion to 12 classes, a new numbering system to help both staff and spectators, and new trophies to be presented during the award ceremonies following each event.

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.

EKN Trackside: 2018 SKUSA Winter Series – AMR Motorplex Weekend Report

Superkarts! USA launched the initial Florida Winter Tour in December of 1998, simply because Don Janowski and his son Joe didn’t want to stop racing in October when it got cold in the Midwest. The Florida gearbox program quickly gained supporters, which fueled momentum, and over the next handful of years, the program became the unofficial off-season racing series, run by Bill Wright. Fast forward a dozen years, and the Superkarts! USA brand made its return to the Sunshine State this past weekend, and it was a very successful homecoming at that. A packed paddock featured 220 entries, highlighted by full fields in Mini Swift, X30 Junior and X30 Senior. The racing was a little chaotic on Saturday, but things improved drastically on Sunday. On track, Dante Yu and Lorenzo Travisanutto topped the X30 Senior races, while Daniel Formal and Bill Musgrave split the S1 wins. With this event, the 2018 SKUSA competition season is underway.

EKN Trackside: 2018 SKUSA Winter Series – AMR Motorplex Preview
Saturday, 13 January 2018 10:41

A new era begins this weekend as Superkarts! USA launches its new Winter Series. The two-weekend program will serve as the unofficial ‘spring training’ for the 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour and takes the organization back to Florida where its roots were formed back in the late 1990s. The opening event this weekend has brought competitors to the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires, and almost 200 entries pre-registered for the race.

The AMR facility has been part of assorted winter series programs for the last two decades and, in 2017, the track became part of the Vantage Karting Group Entertainment – a company owned by Justin Marks and Eric Jones. Since taking over the facility this summer, VKG Entertainment has given the 7/10-mile course a new look, while also adding a 3/10-mile rental kart circuit to the south of the main layout. The facility’s location in South Florida provides constant action on the tracks, and the lead up to this weekend has been no different with many of the SKUSA Winter Series competitors taking to the circuit over the last month to prepare for the opener.
