Jim Russell Racing Drivers School Partners with SKUSA SuperNationals XIII
Wednesday, 04 November 2009 15:40
The Jim Russell Racing Drivers School has formally announced a partnership with Superkarts! USA to award two scholarships for the ‘Future Driver 2010 Selection’ to two lucky SuperNationals XIII drivers. A panel of three scouts will select a driver from each the S3 and TaG Senior fields to receive a direct bid to the Future Driver Selection, held at Infineon Raceway December 19-22, a value of $7995 each.

The Jim Russell Future Driver Selection is an international initiative created this year to find the best young talent from the worlds of karting and ‘junior’ formula car racing. It is designed to be a merit-based competition that rewards the two best young drivers with a fully-funded season of racing in the 2010 Jim Russell Championship Series (JRCS). From there the competitors will find themselves battling it out for the JRCS Prize Package, a fully-funded season in the 2011 FIA Formula Two Championship.

"As the premier karting event in the USA, SuperNats is the ideal venue to observe and select drivers for our Future Driver program and compliments our ladder system which is comprehensive from karting through Formula 1” explained Chip Pankow, President, Jim Russell Racing Drivers School.

F1’s Buemi and Alguersuari Confirmed for SKUSA SuperNationals in SuperPro
Wednesday, 21 October 2009 07:14
eKartingNews.com has learned from Superkarts! USA that Formula One drivers Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari are confirmed entries for the upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals XIII at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas - November 18-22. The Scuderia Toro Rosso drivers will compete in the SuperPro (KZ2) division, representing Italian kart manufacturer Intrepid.

“It is certainly great to have two current Formula One drivers make the trip over to the SuperNationals,” commented SKUSA CEO Tom Kutscher from his home office. “It certainly speaks volumes for the event itself when it can attract current international karters and former world champions, along with NASCAR, IndyCar, and now Formula One drivers. I have heard that a few more F1 drivers are rumored to be making the trip as well, but are not yet confirmed.”

Buemi hails from Switzerland and is currently completing his first season in Formula One. After earning numerous Swiss Karting titles, Buemi’s highest achievement in karting came via European Junior Intercontinental A Championship in 2002 aboard a CRG. Two years later, the soon-to-be 21-year old (October 31) began his progression up the formula car ranks in Europe before landing the test/reserve driving position for Red Bull in 2008.

Alguersuari recently made a return to karting having competed at the KZ1 World Cup in Sarno, Italy during an off-weekend from Formula One. The 19-year old competed in the upper level of European karting for three years - two as a Junior before becoming an official member of the Intrepid factory team competing once in the Senior ranks.

Superkarts! USA in expansion mode with new series to debut

FONTANA, CA (March 20, 2008) – The 2008 season is expected to be a very exciting one for the growing Superkarts! USA organization, which will take a number of major steps forward in re-releasing the brand onto the American karting community. The new ownership of Tom and Patti Kutscher have been busy in the off-season laying out plans to expand their program, using their ultra-successful ProKart Challenge (PKC) model to pull the cover off of three new regional series in ’08. As the flagship series under the SKUSA banner, the ProKart Challenge will kick off its new season on the March 28-29 weekend at the CalSpeed karting facility, which is located just outside the track walls of Auto Club Speedway (formerly California Speedway) in Fontana, California.  Once again delivering the best in shifterkart and TaG sprint racing, the PKC has a handful of new announcements to make as well, including a brand new website and minimum age adjustments in G1 and TaG Masters.

Granja Viana 2007
Thursday, 10 January 2008 17:00
If one were polled to pick a single country that exemplified a passion for motorsport, they’d be hard pressed not to choose Brazil. The country has produced many of the greatest racing drivers of all time, including Emerson Fittipaldi, Nelson Piquet, and the late Ayrton Senna. The interest Brazilians have for motor racing is rivaled only by their love of futbol and that fervor for competition is echoed in the very soul of the national culture. It’s something every fan of racing should witness at least once, and for the Superkarts! USA / MG Tires national race team, that opportunity came this past November at the annual Granja Viana endurance race in São Paulo, Brazil. SKUSA’s man at the track, Chris Ortenburger was on scene to capture the action and flavor of the event. Click here to experience the spectacle with Chris as your guide.
