SKUSA Winter Series

Skusa Announces Contingency Partnership With Fittipaldi Wheels For Inaugural Skusa Winter Series
Wednesday, 10 January 2018 20:27

Superkarts! USA today announced an exciting partnership and contingency prize package in partnership with 2x F1 World Champion and 2x Indy 500 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi. The promotion will see SKUSA partner with the Brazilian superstar’s signature forged wheel line, Fittipaldi Wheels, to see (2) sets given away to SKUSA Winter Series pro class champions.

The ever popular IAME X30 senior class and the Honda shifter S1 class champions will both receive their choice of (1) set of Fittipaldi wheels for winning the inaugural SKUSA Winter Series championship. The winner will have their choice of selecting style, size, and fitment upon winning the series championship, subject to stock and availability.

“This is an exciting promotion, and an exciting name to be affiliated with,” explained SKUSA president Tom Kutscher. “Emerson’s resume is well known. He is without a doubt one of the most successful racing drivers to have ever done it. It’s no secret he’s found a new interest with his son racing karts and we couldn’t be more proud to find a way to partner with him and his wheel company.”

Homestead Registration Reminders
Sunday, 07 January 2018 19:51

Attention Potential Winter Series racers: Mini Swift will likely sell out before Pre-Reg closes Monday at midnight (PST). X30 Junior and Senior are in the single digits remaining too! If a class is sold out, walk-ups will unfortunately need to be turned away. You can Pre-Register on MotorsportReg and also make sure your SKUSA Membership is current. Please make sure to review the On-Line Info Sheet, especially if this is your first time racing with SKUSA.

Registration is scheduled to open in the new building from 10am to 5pm-ish. We are also tossing around the idea of doing a Mechanics-Only check in on Wednesday to help get the drivers through on Thursday. We'll announce this at the track if we do. PLEASE don't wait till the last minute to check in as a driver or mechanic. You won't be able to enter the facility on Friday without a SKUSA wristband.

Registration for Superkarts! USA Florida Winter Series Opens December 1
Thursday, 30 November 2017 11:20


The 2017 season for Superkarts! USA came to a close as the sun set behind the Nevada mountains on SuperSunday, with the final checkered flag waving at the SuperNationals 21 in Las Vegas on November 19. The organization welcomed over 500 drivers from around the world to close what has been a record-breaking season – with another grand event competing around a new course alongside the famous Las Vegas Strip highlighted by the 10 drivers to score the victories. There is very little time to reflect on the past 11 months, as the 2018 season is quickly approaching with a much earlier start for SKUSA compared to year’s past.

Both new and familiar grounds are on the horizon for Superkarts! USA. The launch of the new SKUSA Winter Series takes the organization back to Florida in a two-event, four-round championship to serve as the unofficial ‘spring training’ program for the 2018 season. All five IAME and four Stock Honda categories from the SKUSA Pro Tour will be included, along with two local option Briggs 206 classes (both Senior and Master) to round out the class structure. This is an adjustment from the previous announcement about the Winter Series classes, due to significant input from the racers.

2018 Membership and Kart Number Changes
Sunday, 26 November 2017 10:45
With growth comes a few challenges and difficult choices. SuperKarts! USA hasn’t been a stranger to either of these things during the past few seasons. After several lengthy discussions, we’ve decided on the following changes to better serve our growing customer base and expanding promotional efforts.

Calendar-Year Memberships
Starting in 2018, all SKUSA memberships will be good for the calendar year only. This means January 1st through December 31st instead of an expiration date 12 months after purchase. In order to simplify this transition, we will do the following.
  • If your current expiration date is between Jan 1 and June 30, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will only be $50.
  • If your current expiration date is between July 1 and December 31, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will be free.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you MUST submit an online renewal during the renewal periods described below.
  • The transitional renewal period for members will be December 1st through January 31th.
  • The transitional late renewal period will be February 1st through February 15th. Late renewals will cost $125.
  • Renewals after February 15th will be treated as new memberships.
  • New memberships will be $150.
The standard renewal rate for 2019 Memberships will then be $100, and the standard renewal period will then be December 1st through Jan 15th and the standard late renewal period will be January 16th through January 31st.

CIK Kart Numbers
Starting in 2018, SKUSA will be standardizing to CIK number specifications. This means solid yellow number panels and solid black numbers for all classes, 1 digit for champions, and 2 and 3 digits depending on your class. No more letter designators. Please refer to SKUSA Rule 20.2.2 for the dimensional specifics. Our use of the video marshalling system is the main catalyst for this change, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the difficulty of our track officials reading some of our color combinations and your custom number panels.

IAME Classes Shifter Classes
Micro Swift - 10-99
Mini Swift - 100-299 (200-299 reserved for overflow)
X30 Junior - 700-799
X30 Senior - 300-499 (400-499 reserved for overflow)
X30 Master - 500-599
S1 - 100-199
S2 - 200-299
S3 - 300-399
S4 - 400-499
S5 - 500-599
S4SM - 600-699
KZ (SuperNats) - 4-99

Reserved Numbers
I know what everyone is now thinking, and there is no easy way around it. We will no longer be reserving race numbers with your memberships. Each class will be assigned a block of numbers and when you enter your first race of any series you will pick from any available numbers in that pool. That will then be your “reserved” number for the rest of that series. Thankfully, MotorsportReg allows you to pick numbers in real time. You are likely to have a different number in the Winter Series, PKC and ProTour, so first come, first serve.
