Official Statement From IAME USA Regarding Future of Platform Updates Beginning in 2021 Season
Thursday, 02 January 2020 08:38
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 2020 racing season will be our seventh year, and we would like to introduce some of the developments we have in the pipeline for subsequent years.

Before doing so, we want to outline the impetus for any such changes. As we pledged in 2014, safety and customer satisfaction remain our guiding principles at IAME. Any new ideas are in the interest of those two facets, and we are providing notice a year in advance for changes that will take effect on January 1st, 2021. The new changes we will be implementing are as follows:

Fuel Tests - SuperNats 23
Written by John Motley - National Tech Director   
Friday, 27 December 2019 13:07

We use a Fuel Testing Laboratory with no Motorsports connection to preserve anonymity.

As many of you know we took fuel samples from competitors at the last two Pro Tour events and submitted them to various lab tests. At SuperNats 23 we took 10 samples, mostly from the winners but in some cases farther back in the field. A sample, mixed by us to the correct ratio was also included for comparison.

All samples tested identical to the mandated fuel/oil required.

As background on the testing used, it is a procedure called Mass Spectrometry – which is the same process that Formula One and MotoGP uses for their tests. This allows the sample to be compared to a known sample to determine conformity to our rules. Note that in addition we have also sent samples of supposedly undetectable additives to the lab who easily detected their use – some of these additives contained banned carcinogens.

Superkarts! USA Announces New Spec Oil And Fuel Combo For 2020 Racing Season
Sunday, 15 December 2019 20:37

As part of an ongoing campaign to improve and enhance SKUSA kart racing, the nation’s premier organization is pleased to announce they will begin using Elf Racing oils for all sanctioned events, beginning with the SKUSA Winter Series in Florida.

Effective immediately, SKUSA will mandate Elf HTX909 SAE 50, which is widely considered to be the very best karting oil on the planet. Furthermore, SKUSA will revert the spec fuel back to the VP MS98 in an effort to promote engine longevity and cost efficiencies for racers.

“This has been a long time coming,” remarked SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “It’s no secret that we have been eager to find an oil that not only met, but exceeded the quality we’ve been using. All signs pointed to Elf, which many refer to as the absolute best in the game.”
