Fresh on the heels of the announcement that seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher will be racing at the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals XIII later this month, EKN has learned from Rodney Berryhill at Champion Racing/Intrepid USA that Nelson Piquet Jr. will also be in the SuperPro field for the November 18-22 event, which will be held outside the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino. During a phone conversation on Monday afternoon, Berryhill confirmed the 24-year old will be traveling to the States this week to do some testing at their Oklahoma Motorsports Complex along with mechanics from the Intrepid Kart Technology factor team before the event next week.

“We are excited to have Piquet added to our squad for the SuperNationals,” said Berryhill. “With the stellar drivers we have here in the States, racing in Vegas together with the factory drivers from Intrepid Kart Technology in Europe, the Intrepid brand will be well represented with great odds at reaching the podium numerous times.”

Michael Schumacher Confirmed for SKUSA SuperNationals XIII

Simply put, the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals has just stepped to the next level. SKUSA CEO Tom Kutscher is thrilled to confirm to the North American karting community that seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher has officially entered the upcoming SuperNationals at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The former Ferrari F1 driver will compete in the SuperPro category against the top 125cc drivers from North America and the world, running with the factory Tony Kart team aboard a Vortex-powered Racer EVR. Schumacher’s participation will certainly explode the global interest in the annual event, which was already closing in on selling out the paddock.

“Having Michael on the grid for his year’s SuperNationals is such an exciting addition for everyone on the SKUSA staff,” offered Kutscher. “The simple fact that that he contacted us to be part of the race is huge! We’ve had the opportunity to watch some big name drivers run with us in the past, but there is no comparison with Michael. He’s widely considered the finest driver in the history of the sport and it will be an honor to have him take the green in Las Vegas. This is going to fire this year’s race up to a whole new level!”

Jim Russell Racing Drivers School Partners with SKUSA SuperNationals XIII
Wednesday, 04 November 2009 14:40
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 06:14
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.
