The second half of the 2023 California ProKart Challenge was revised due to the arrival of Hurricane Hilary. The fourth stop of the Superkarts! USA regional series in August was scheduled to be a double-round weekend, hosting Rounds Four and Five. Due to the weather issues, Round Five was moved to the upcoming series finale weekend on September 22-24 at the Adams Motorsports Park in Riverside, California.

The change for the California ProKart Challenge finale weekend at the Adams Motorsports Park will feature three days of action. Five rounds of practice will be offered on Friday, September 22. Saturday will host Round Five of racing, including warm-up, qualifying, Pre-Final and Final. Sunday is a duplicate format to contest the sixth and final round of the California ProKart Challenge, including the race-day podium presentation – and new for the series – the 2023 championship podiums.

The 19th season for the California ProKart Challenge has been put to the test as the program enters the second half of the championship chase. What was scheduled as a three-day, two-round race weekend at the Adams Motorsports Park in Riverside, California over August 18-20 became a shortened two-day, one-round event. Hurricane Hilary hit the southern California region on Sunday, forcing Superkarts! USA to postpone the Round Five action scheduled for that day. Round Four was contested on Saturday, with dry weather greeting the competitors at the historic Riverside, California facility.
Max Bore Size Update

In recent days we have discovered an issue with the max bore size for the Mini Swift and KA100 engines. In both cases, when using the largest size piston available, if the clearance is excessive (a well-worn engine), there is a chance the stated maximum bore size could be exceeded.

Until further notice (the 2024 fiche factory document) the following maximum bore sizes will be in effect.
  • Mini Swift - 42.21mm (1.662")
  • KA100 - 48.69mm (1.917")

The second half of 2023 California ProKart Challenge is set to begin over the August 18-20 weekend. Competitors will head to the historic Adams Motorsports Park to contest Rounds Four and Five of this year’s championship program in a three-day, double- round weekend. The Riverside, California facility is one of the country’s oldest karting circuits since opening in 1959, welcoming the Superkarts! USA regional program multiple times during its 19 seasons.

The second half of the championship chase begins in Adams, featuring a number of tight point standings heading into the next two rounds. Texas driver and two-time winner John Burke remains at the top of the HRT Driver Development KA100 Senior standings. His lead is only 10 points ahead of three-time podium finisher Ethan Lampe with two-time top qualifier Kane Martin a close third, 67 points out of first. Keagan Kaminski has three wins in the first three rounds to lead the standings in the SpeedSense Motorsports KA100 Junior division. Two-time top qualifier Shea Aldrich is second, back by 154 points with Payton Westcott sitting third in the chase.

The 2023 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SummerNationals went into the books on Sunday, completing Round Six of this year’s championship program during the final day of action at the SummerNationals. A clean day of weather at the New Castle Motorsports Park following the crazy first three days in New Castle, Indiana. A couple red flags delayed the action on the day, however, all drivers were cleared of any injuries. ‘Championship Sunday’ will go down as one of the most memorable days in the 14-year history of the program, watching the first international title winner in the X30 Senior division thanks to Brit Joe Turney giving Kart Republic its first as well. And for a second straight time, Pro Shifter has a two-time champion in PSL Karting’s Marijn Kremers after a wild last lap behind race winner AJ Myers.

The final class in the order on the weekend was the Speed Concepts Racing X30 Senior category, providing the final bit of drama for the 2023 season. Five-time SKUSA Pro Tour champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) laid down a monster lap of 1:04.180 in qualifying to clear the field by two tenths. It was three-time winner and championship leader Joe Turney (CDR / Kart Republic) that took the win in the Prefinal as he along with Alessandro de Tullio (IM / Kart Republic), 2022 FIA Karting World Champion Matheus Morgatto (PSL / Birel ART) and Nate Cicero (RPG / Kosmic) pushing Norberg back to fifth in the order. That gave Turney the ability to finish 10th or better in order to claim the SKUSA title ahead of Norberg. The first four laps featured four different leaders with Morgatto jumping ahead in the opening circuit before ADT took a turn. It was Turney next to the lead before Norberg assumed the spot. That is when Norberg and Turney put in the pace, getting away from the field. Turney took the lead back on lap 10 before the shuffled for the spot once again on lap 15 and 16. Turney held the position with the white flag waving and Norberg went on the attack. He was able to pull the over under out of the ‘Scoreboard’ corner getting the advantage by the time they reached ‘Cell Tower’ turn. Norberg went defensive into the double left handers, but allowed just enough space for Turney to dive inside at the second left for the over under. That was all he needed as Norberg’s pace slowed with the move, allowing Turney to drive to the checkered flag for his fourth win of the season, second on the weekend to celebrate his first SKUSA Pro Tour championship. De Tullio drove alone in third with Morgatto climbing back to fourth after falling down to 10th early on. British driver Brandon Carr (RPM / Tony Kart) was hard charger of the race, gaining 18 spots over the 18 laps to finish fifth.
