Two months after a successful 25th running of their SuperNationals in Las Vegas, Superkarts! USA is set to begin its 2023 racing season in mid-January at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires in south Florida. The sixth edition of the SKUSA Winter Series will once again be based out of the Homestead facility with two doubleheader weekends in January and February.

The class structure for the series remains virtually identical to the 2022 edition, except for the dropping of X30 Master and the potential addition of the KA100 Master class, which made a stunning debut at the SuperNationals with 47 entries. SKUSA has officially removed the X30 Master class from the Winter Series and Pro Tour and is now putting the future of the KA100 Master program on the national level into the hands of the racers.

The 2022 Superkarts! USA Winter Series closed out on Sunday, February 13 at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires. The fourth and final round was contested at the Homestead, Florida facility, which was delayed by lightning and heavy rain during warm-up. After grinding through qualifying, the Prefinals were shortened to catch up on the schedule. And by the main events, the sun was shinning for the last chance for drivers to battle for a win and the championships. Rolison Performance Group driver Caleb Gafrarar stole the show on the day and the weekend, earning victory in all four Junior categories. In the headline X30 Senior division, Brazilian Diego Ramos edged out fellow countryman Matheus Morgatto, who put together four straight runner-up results to claim the series championship.

The Group A Apparel X30 Senior division began with only one driver dipping below the 1-minute mark in qualifying, thanks to PSL Karting / Birel ART driver Marijn Kremers. A lap of 59.814 cleared the 40-driver field by over three tenths. He would only complete four of the eight laps in the Prefinal as a broken reed stopped his engine from performing. In turn, Diego Ramos (REM / Kosmic) shined through on the drying track to earn the race win and pole position for the main event. Ramos jumped out to a solid lead at the start of the Final and eventually was caught by point leader Matheus Morgatto (AM / Exprit). Morgatto was into the lead by lap 11 and Ramos positioned himself on the his rear bumper. It was not until Lap 21 that Ramos made his move, grabbing the lead. Morgatto tried to regroup and make a pass, but was unable to complete the move. Ramos took the victory by one-second at the line – becoming the fourth different winner in the four rounds. Saturday winner and three-time defending champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) joined them on the podium in third with Round Two winner Alessandro de Tullio (Parolin USA) and Carson Morgan (RPM / Tony Kart) completing the top-five.

The penultimate round of the 2022 Superkarts! USA Winter Series was held at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires on Saturday with perfect weather conditions all day long at the Homestead, Florida facility. The eight race groups with nine classes contested the third round of the championship program to open up the season. A number of drivers secured their first wins of the season while others added the to the short total of the year.

The Group A Apparel X30 Senior category went beyond the scheduled distance and was decided after the final checkered flag. Defending series champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) made his 2022 debut this weekend after sitting out the month of January. He was instantly into the mix after qualifying fourth as Senior rookie Carson Morgan (RPM / Tony Kart) set the pace with a 47.887-lap time. He fell back to third as championship leader Matheus Morgatto (AM / Exprit) and Norberg slipped through in the Prefinal. The main event was an early battle until Norberg secured the top position. While Morgatto was able to record fast lap of the race, he put the pressure on Norberg but was unable to make a move. Norberg crossed the line as the winner, however, was penalized for a jump start. A protest was filed, and it went in Norberg’s favor, restoring him as the winner and putting Morgatto back to second. Diego Ramos (REM / Kosmic) finished third with Marjin Kremers (PSL / Birel ART) classified fourth with defending SKUSA Pro Tour champion Hannah Greenemeier (RPG / Kosmic) dropped to fifth after a pushback bumper penalty.
