Superkarts! USA Confirms Details For 2nd Annual SKUSA Winter Series Including Colossal $80,000 Prize Package
Wednesday, 28 November 2018 22:29

Superkarts! USA today confirmed long awaited details for their second annual SKUSA Winter Series. The action kicks off the second weekend of 2019 — January 11-13, at AMR Homestead Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires. The four-race championship will not only begin there, but in a twist of exciting news… end there as well.

“After weighing our options for venues, we were hard pressed finding a better location than Miami,” explained SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “The destination is second to none and a great deal of our contingent are fond of the surrounding locations.”

The twist however, is that the second event slated for February 8-10 will see the circuit ran in clockwise configuration (e.g. backwards) providing a different driving experience for Winter Series racers. “Homestead is a circuit with tremendous history,” added Kutscher. “Some of the biggest championship years in Florida have come on the heels of multiple events having been run there. The demand for racing in Homestead is by far the greatest of all the tracks in the area.”

In response to input from parents, team owners and tuners to make the transition from Swift classes to X30 Junior easier we are changing this class from the Evinco “red” tire to the harder “blue” tire. This will be effective January 1, 2019 and will be for all X30 Junior classes in SKUSA Pro Tour, Pro Kart Challenge, as well as any club running under SKUSA’s rule set. Note: X30 Junior will remain on MG Yellow tires for the 2019 Winter Series.

Superkarts! USA and Alpinestars Announce Strategic Partnership for 2019
Tuesday, 13 November 2018 22:47

Superkarts! USA today announced a new partnership with industry leading racewear brand Alpinestars, which will see the renowned name become the ‘official race gear of SKUSA.’ The move underscores a newfound commitment to the sport of karting by Alpinestars, in addition to their existing motorsports programs.

SKUSA shares the excitement of the collaboration, and more importantly the benefits it will offer racers. The partnership will usher in a renewed focus from Alpinestars’ dealers to activate and service every SKUSA ProTour event with on-site support. Participants have been ill served by companies in the past, with no real means to purchase safety equipment at events. Local Alpinestars dealers will be on-hand at each ProTour race with ample Alpinestars product for sale.

EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22 – Preview Series – KZ

Karting is ‘the purest form of motorsports’ – that was the phrase coined by the late Dan Wheldon. On SuperSunday, the Dan Wheldon Ambassador Award Presented by Bell Racing USA will be awarded to one member of the karting community who embodies the spirit of the sport, such as Dan did with karting and racing, in general. For karting, the elite form is the KZ category. It compares to that of Formula One, with the quickest, most powerful engines in sprint racing, featuring many of the best drivers from around the world.

The former SuperPro division really kicked up the international flavor in 2007 when world champion Marco Ardigo made the trek to America and stole the headline category. Since then, only one USA driver has won during that time when Gary Carlton earned his second triumph in 2015 in what is now called the KZ division. Prior to Carlton’s emotional victory, and in the last two years, one driver has stood on the podium and offered his race-winning helmet to SKUSA President Tom Kutscher. Italian Paolo de Conto dominated those three SuperSunday main events to claim three massive payday checks of $10,000 each. The factory CRG driver has a chance to make history at the SuperNationals with a fourth victory, which would tie him with Connor De Phillippi for the most wins ever. The odds are in his favor with a fairly ‘new’ field of drivers set to battle in KZ, with less than half the field having raced in Vegas before. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
