- December first half - super tired, super much work, but also super close to Christmas! -
by Chraizy at 12:06 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris. I just spent my 2 hours today with the news, believe me, this is way longer as it would normally take, I lack sleep and if you find any mistakes in this news, tell me, might have overseen something. But now, let's move to the news:


New Players

Brennen Giesler is the only new player this half. WIth a FS SC 3lap he joined the SC ranks at #491.

World Records

No new World Records...

Non-SC Movement


The highest active player was #11 (9) Daniel Lunczer, who is on a nonstoppable strak of PRing. Since his comeback he seems to have caught fresh motivation and scored a few really nice TOP10 times on CM, DK and RRd. Especially his RRd times saw huge cuts, the 3lap fell by over 1.3 seconds! Dan cut 0.5 AF points and passed Marcelo for a single digit rank, just like 1 year ago!
The other Dan, #9 (11) Daniel Burbank scored 6 PRs compared to Lunczers 5 PRs, and improved some of his weaker times on WS and SL. Dan cut 0.6 AF points and is close to Dan, and also only 3 ranks away from the TOP10!
Our newest GOD, #21 (21) Beck Abney finally got the last remaining MR flap GOD, and alsoooo 15 other PRs! Beck is berserking through the ranks with amazing PRs like a #5 time on MMF 3lap or a #12 YV flap! Beck cut 3.6 AF points and passed 2 players aswell! The TOP20 is only 0.6 points away, but with those kind of cuts he will easily get there by next time!
#28 (28) Finn Berger decided to get a double PR on LR this half, so he just did it as if it was nothing!... no seriosly, Finn worked for those times and it took him a bit time, but the effort definitely payed off! He finally scored some PRs again, and got a nice TOP25 time on the flap as addition! The cuts were 0"01 seconds on the 3lap and 0"02 on the flap. Finn said he could bring the flap down a bit more with a few more tries, can he do it?
#31 (35) Michael Arends scored 3 PRs, two of them are new GODs on WS! He also improved his BC flap, one of the 6 times he hasn't GODed yet. Other times are MMF dual, FS dual and BC 3lap. Everything except FS 3lap should be easily doable for him, but FS will be a hard challenge, it's not the hardest GOD standard for nothing! In the other news, Michael also passed Myles for the 35th spot!
#60 (59) Marcos Vinicius Alves scored a new YV 3lap which is a new TOP100 and new Legend time. He is 1 point away from the next spot.
#70 (69) Jake Walter improved his FS 3lap and cut 0.09 AF points.
Close behind we have #71 (70) David Moll who PRed 5 times this half on LR and YV dual and DK 3lap. LR saw a new Legend and also a new GOD time on the flap. David passed Noah for the TOP70 spot and is not even one point away from Jake!
#100 (100) Christopher Zartler set 13 new records over the last half month and achieved many many new Legend times. His overall ARR also rose and Chris became the newest Legend F player, now the 110th! He passed 11 player, and also reached the TOP100 with style. Well done!
#104 (101) Lachlan Young got passed by Chris, but that didn't stop him to pass another player with 2 new records on MMF and KD 3laps. Both went into the TOP100 and are new Legend times.
#144 (145) Patrick Blank set 7 new records. The cuts weren't too big, except for his MR flap, which went directly from 170th to 116th and is a new Legend time, same as his RRy flap, which cut a good amount of ranks and is another Legend time in his timeset. Patrick passed 10 players and reached the TOP150 this month!
#205 (208) Anastasia Steingold got 12 new records, including her first Legend time on FS 3lap! She is only an Elite A player so far, but this Legend is definitely not easy to get, so well done! Stacy improved her AF by 29 points and passed 28 players, and is not too far away from the TOP200, which was her primar goal for the begining.
#222 (224) Anna Moon made a massive cut this week with 26 new records! Anna achieved many new King times, and destroyed her last remaining Master times. So far, RRy seems to be the first course where she will get a Legend time. Anna passed 53 players with a huge 49.5 AF cut! Sick movement!
#245 (247) Brandon Knodel improved 11 PRs with PRs mainly in the Star and Special Cups. Brandon passed 15 players with a 10 AF points cut and is close to a rank promotion.
Not too far behind we have #246 (252) Lewis Richards who is making good progress aswell on some courses. His FS times look really good and he also achieved a Legend time on the flap which is almost TOP100! It's his second Legend time, but so far he hasn't reached a TOP100. It'll come sooner than expected tho ;)! However, Lewis passed 28 players this half, barely missing the TOP250 entry with his 27 AF points cut.
#276 (278) Naveen Selvam got 8 PRs on KD, FS, CM and MR dual. Each of them saw good cuts and made a 15 AF point cut possible, which helped him to pass 9 players.
#569 (600) Mark Vizza got 26 PRs and passed 44 players with it. He got a few nice times, for example his already strong RRy flap time which went almost to sub 1 minute PAL (sub 50 NTSC tho!) and is a Pro A time. Mark also reached the Expert F rank, making him the newest Expert!
#589 (611) Daniel Sampson is only a few spots behind, with 7 new records he was able to pass 14 players with a 15 AF points cut. He is missing 11 more spots to join the TOP600 like Mark did this half, but with some more PRs this should be no problem at all!
#650 (689) Daniel Plaumann got 21 new records and added 6 new times to his timeset. He passed
77 player with a 59 AF points cut and reached the Advanced ranks this half! Nice work!

SC Movement

#7 (8) Beck Abney set 5 new records mainly on flower cup tracks. He continued his epic non-sc GOD hunt in SC, where he got 5 new GODs! Only RRy and DK 3laps are left, and he would be the 6th overall GOD! Beck passed 2 players and secured himself a single digit rank for a long time, as his AF cut was 3.5 points, and puts him 0.2 points behind Steven!
#11 (11) Jake Walter got 2 new records on MR and RRd flaps, which didn't cut that many ranks. Both PRs were already GOD times so no change in ARR.
#70 (68) Michael Arends improved his TT flap into the Legend C area and passed one player.
#73 (72) Patrick Blank also scored one PR, but on LR 3lap which was a minimal cut, but still gave him a 0.05 AF cut.
#125 (100) Daniel Burbank added 4 new times to his SC timeset, namely TT dual and DK dual. His TT 3lap is already a GOD time, ranked 15th! Those times helped him to pass 34 players and land directly in the TOP100!
#137 (146) Lewis Richards played a bit MR this half and scored 2 PRs here. His 3lap went into the 1'25 range and his flap is now ranked as Elite D. He passed 7 players and is a new member of the TOP150!
#197 (212) Daniel Sampson got a new RRd flap and passed 2 players.
#258 (279) Daniel Plaumann improved 4 PRs, but maintains his rank. He cut 0.2 AF points though.
#287 (331) Mark Vizza played RRy and scored a dual PR here. He passed 4 players with a 0.3 AF points cut.

Well that's it! This is the last update for the year, I hope you had a nice karting year, your goals are reached and that you will have lots of fun at future karting! May you come healthy into the new year 2015!

- October and November POWs -
by Zoran at 5:35 am

4th quarter is the last chance to go for your goals, but it is harder to win POWs since others are trying as well. Let's see who were best of the best in October:

Week 1
Amazing week for Justus Gilstrap brings him his 1st POW award. He cut more then 14% AF and joined Elite ranks. Also, Justus already got a Legend time on KD lap.

Week 2
Another great week for Justus Gilstrap. With 19 new PRs he was able to enter top 300.

Week 3
Elite battle is heating up. With 19 new PRs, Thomas Bundschuh passed 76 people and also joined Elite ranks.

Week 4
Marcos Vinicius Alves reminded us of the Brazilian glory days. He got 3 new SC PRs and one of them was a WR. The course on which Marcos got his 1st WR is FS SC lap.

POM
No doubt about the winner this month. Justus Gilstrap improved every PR and passed 87 people to join Elite ranks. KD lap he drove showed his potential. It is a Legend time ranked #142.

We end this update with November:

Week 1
Are you serious!!! Thomas Bundschuh jumped up the ranks like crazy. He cut 1/3 of his AF and passed 127 people. I guess he forgot to submit some PRs the week before, but even half of this is more then enough to bring him this POW award. Too bad because he might have won 2 POWs.

Week 2
SC WR + 4 more SC PRs. 18 non-sc PRs with 12.5 AF cut. Sounds like Beck Abney is back in town to pick up this POW award.

Week 3
Few PRs, huge cuts. This is a signature of Michael Arends who cut 21% of his AF with only 6 new PRs.

Week 4
Daniel Burbank responded to the improvements of his POY rival. With 8 new PRs, Daniel cut 8% AF and joined the top 10.

POM
A lot of people were active this month and many had amazing improvements so this wasn't an easy choice. In the end Beck Abney wins another POM. He improved 30 non-sc and 7 SC PRs, got a CM SC 3lap WR, made a 28.5% non-sc AF cut and passed 14 people. Impressive!!!

Only December and POY are left. POW points are also updated.

- November second half - the time has come... -
by Chraizy at 9:47 am

Hey guys, Chris here! With December, the real work starts (at least for me) and free time is something I can only dream of currently. I hope that I can do a news update in mid december, but I will try my best. For now, let's begin with the news:

New Players

James Farrell-Shaw joined our site with 12 times, all of them ranging around the TOP700. His debuting rank is #871. SC: #483.
Christopher Carp sent us all 32 times and is ranked around 800th on the tracks. His times give him a start position of #877.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer improved 2 WRs this half. The first WR came on SL. This was his oldest WR from February 2013 which he improved by quite a bit, 0"16 to be exact! The new time is a 1'55"70 (NTSC: 1'36"22)

The second WR was on WS, where he improved his time twice within 2 days of playing (the first improvement came after only 20 Minutes!) He first got a 4'21"68, followed by a 4'21"54 (NTSC: 3'37"51)!

Non-SC Movement

#12 (10) Daniel Lunczer is back with a few new times! He has forced his way through LR and DK and gained 2 new TOP10s, one of the a #4 time on LR flap! His 3lap looks sharp aswell and is a sub 1'58"5 in PAL. DK went almost to a sub 2'15, only missing it by 0"02. He barely kept himself save from the other Dan, #10 (11) Daniel Burbank who made a massive cut with 14 new records! Times like DK and KTB saw nice improvements, but also the other tracks had nice cuts. His best PR in this submission was a #6 time on MR flap. He cut 1.3 AF points, and is only half an AF point away from the other Dan!
#22 (23) Beck Abney gained 8 new records, 4 of them are new GODs, and those are not the easiest ones. He got FS 3lap, CM flap and WS dual GODs, of which FS is definitely the hardest GOD standard! Beck is coming closer and closer to the overall GOD status, as he is only missing the MR flap standard. It's incredible, if Beck would get the MR flap GOD, he would only be a bit more than 0.2 worse than Cooper, and would've been the worst GOD ever. But now he cut too much AF... but that's good of course! He passed 4 players with a 3 AF points cut, 4.4 AF points away from the TOP20.
#34 (36) Michael Arends improved 6 PRs, both TT times were new GODs. He finally improved his last Non TOP100 times, and also his Non Legend/GOD times. All of his times are now TOP100/Legend! Michael made massive cuts on WS and TT, and also improved his MMF flap into the Legend A range. His KD flap saw a further improvement and is now ranked 21st. Michael passed 6 players with a massive 12 points cut! That's a cut of 25% from his old AF!
#61 (59) Marcus Vinicius Alves got 5 new records, two of them were Legend A times and reeally close to GOD. Marcus made good progress this half with a 1.5 AF points cut, passing 2 players and entering the TOP60!
#63 (62) Darius Austin raced 2 RRy times, both close to the TOP40. His 3lap is a new GOD time, definitely not one of the easier GODs as it takes a bit patience, but he made it! Darius passed 1 player with a 1 AF point cut. His GOD counter stands at 12 of 32 GODs.
#71 (71) David Moll got 5 new records, 3 of them are new TOP100 times. He eliminated 2 more King times and has LR 3lap as only King left before he reaches 32/32 Legends. He passed 6 players with a great 3.2 AF points cut, also entering the TOP75!
#111 (111) Christopher Zartler scored 8 PRs, 4 of them are new Legend times. Chris is reeeeally close to the Legend F ARR, only a very tiny amount of ARR points is missing until he reaches it. In AF, he passed 8 players with a 9 AF points cut, one of them was #112 (112) Dan Edeen, who got a double PR on WS to gain a double King A time. He passed MK Legend Mickael Smolen, but got passed by Chris, so he sadly gained no spot.
#198 (199) Tim van Ham sent us 2 missing SL times, those were the last missing times, and he now has a complete timesheet! He passed 31 players with those PRs and his ARR climbed up to King F, making him the newest King player!
#231 (231) Anastasia Steingold improved 11 PRs, 2 of them are new TOP200. She scored 3 new King times and eliminated 2 remaining Master times. Only KD and YV 3laps are left for a 32/32 Elite timeset! Stacy passed 28 players with a 24 AF points cut. She is really close to become Switzerlands #3 player and only needs 4 more AF points to pass Alain. The #2 however is a bit harder to reach at #130, but definitely not unreachable. Will she be able to pass him?
#258 (262) Brandon Knodel got 11 PRs aswell and got a few new TOP300s, and also eliminated a few Master times, and even got some more King times! He passed 14 players and made a nice 14 AF points cut. He also became an Elite B player!
#271 (277) Anna Moon made a nice cut of 25 AF points and passed 22 players this half! She scored 19 new records and made great progress on some courses like BB, where she destroyed her 3lap by almost 2 seconds!
#278 (280) Lewis Richards made a single PR on RRy flap which is a new King time, but he lost a rank due to Anna.
#361 (362) Tyler Chambers scored 4 records on LR and RRd dual. His RRd times are new Elite times, and his LR looks really good aswell with improvements into the TOP400 range. He passed 6 players with a nice 5.7 AF points cut.
#607 (625) Daniel Sampson improved 9 PRs and passed 49 players with a 35.7 AF points cut. He got a few nice TOP500s, but his other cuts were not bad aswell. His best PR was an Elite D flap on MR, ranked 360th!
#601 (644) Mark Vizza improved 24 PRs, 3/4 of his timeset. He played RRy again and improved his time even more, the flap is now a Pro time. Mark passed 37 players with a 33 AF points cut.
#789 (766) Daniel Plaumann (I just noticed we have many Daniels active in MK64 :D) scored 17 new records, with many new TOP700 times. His CM 3lap is a TOP400 time, ranked Pro D. He passed 36 players with a 39 AF points cut and joined the TOP800!


SC Movement

#9 (10) Beck Abney sent us a new time for DKJP and improved it to a sub 22"5, and scored a new Legend C 3lap.
#11 (11) Jake Walter also improved DK, but didn't gain any ranks with his improvement.
#13 (13) Daniel Lunczer played LR on the SC side aswell and made a nice cut from #14 to #8 with a nice sub 1'35 time.
#23 (25) Pat Bertovich scored 4 PRs, one of them was another successful Weathertenko attempt, which gave him a nice #3 time on the 3lap! He cut 2.1 AF points and is dangerously close to Noah for the 24th rank.
#102 (114) Anna Moon hit a successful KD SC 3lap and got a nice 0.9 AF points cut. She passed one player in the progress.
#151 (134) Daniel Burbank got a new MR flap time, which subbed the 19 seconds barrier and is a TOP30. It's also a Legend A time and leads him 2 ranks higher in the AF charts.
#198 (214) Daniel Sampson got a double CM SC PR, the 3lap is completely new, the flap is an improvement of around 2 seconds. Dan passed 1 person, but remained at the same AF.
#254 (243) Steffen Hagelskjaer got a CM flap aswell and improved it by around a second to a TOP10 time!
#261 (279) Daniel Plaumann got 10 records, 6 of them are completely new. He passed 89 people with a big 18 AF points cut. Most notable was his FS flap, which is ranked 136th and Elite B!
#290 (335) Mark Vizza got 8 PRs, 4 of them are new entries. His average lies around 240th, and he passed 20 people with a nice 6 AF points cut.

That's it for now! I hope you all have a nice pre-christmas time! Happy karting all!

- June - September POW awards -
by Zoran at 12:32 pm


End of year is close and as POY award should be awarded as soon as possible, it is time to catch up. We continue where we stopped and that is June:

Week 1
Best player this week was Dan Edeen. With 9 new PRs Dan cut 9 AF points and is closing in on top 100.

Week 2
Christopher Zartler was the most active player with 10 new PRs. He passed 12 people in the process and is now at #135.

Week 3
Again, 10 PRs is what it took to get this weeks award. This time it was Beck Abney who added 4 more GOD times to his now very rich collection.

Week 4
Wery impressive week for Stefan Kok. With 18 new PRs Stefan passed 10 people. He also added a 2nd GOD time to his name on RRy lap.

POM
Biggest climber this month was Stefan Kok. His 4th week performance was enough to give him this POM. He passed 10 people and went from #91 to #81 with a great tome on MR lap which ended up at #40. Possibly an indicator of what we can expect from Stefan in the future!


We continue with July:

Week 1
Without any doubt, best player was Daniel Burbank . Not only that he was able to get his FS lap WR back from the champ, he also drove 7 other nice PRs.

Week 2
Not a very active week as everyone were watching what will happen in FS WR battle. Daniel Burbank was able to improve once again after the champ took his fresh WR. He also got additonal 3 PRs.

Week 3
A very nice week for Anna Moon got even better with her 1st POW award. With 17 new PRs she was able to pass 15 people.

Week 4
Some historic events happened this week. Matthias got 3 new WRs, and all of them were the last missing Halford 10 standards. However, he still missed one that Lacey reached on DK 3lap for a perfect ARR score. Over on SCs, Beck Abney took his 1st WR and is the 1st person to land the new Weathertenko SC on CM lap. Beck also drove another 5 SC PRs and 3 non-sc. In the end, the award goes to Beck Abney.

POM
Lot of new WRs this month, but of 3 WR contenders Beck Abney was the best. Not only that he became the 1st person ever to land a Weathertenko, but he cut his SC AF almost by 1/3 with 12 other PRs. Beck also drove 6 new non-sc PRs this month.

Next is August:

Week 1
Not to much activity in this hot summer days but that didn't stop Vincent Tolhuis to surprise us with a nice new RRd SC 3lap WR.

Week 2
Patrick Ode wins his 1st POW award. He earned it with 22 new PRs with which he passed 36 people.

Week 3
Another awesome SC week for Beck Abney who cut 22% of his AC AF. He did it with 7 new PRs and was able to jump all the way to top 10 from 16th place.

Week 4
Stefan Kok was the best player this week. He cut almost 15% of his AF, passed 13 people and is closing on top 50 fast.

POM
He didn't PR much, but all of his PRs were pretty amazing. With "only" 8 Prs, Michael Arends cut 19% AF. 2 of his time times went all the way into top 20. Michael jumped from 67th to 53rd place in total this month.

Last month in this update is September:

Week 1
Another month and another POW for Stefan Kok.This week Stefan got 11 new PRs with which he cut 8.5% Af and passed 5 prople.

Week 2
For his 6th month in a row, Beck Abney won a POW award. This week Beck got 13 non-sc PRs and 5 SC PRs and made 9% Uni AF cut. He also got back his 10th place back on SC ranks.

Week 3
Stefan Kok does it again. He improved at his standard rate with another 10 PRs which gained him 4 places and 7.5% AF.

Week 4
Patrick Loseth had a great end of the month. With many new PRs he was able to reach Legend F rank and get into top 100.

POM
With 26 new PRs Stefan Kok was the best player this month. Stefan cut 26% AF and passed 16 people ending the month just short of top 50.


In the end we still have to award 2 POQs...


2nd POQ
This 3 months were amazing for Daniel Burbank. With 23 new PRs Dan cut 24% AF, jumped from 21st to 14th place and became 17th player to reach non-sc GOD. His FS times both ended up in 2nd place and he was even able to challenge the champ on the lap where he held a WR.


3rd POQ
There can be only 1 winner this quarter and his name is Beck Abney. Beck improved 50/54 PRs. On non-sc he cut 22% AF with 29 new PRs, but the real magic happened on SCs. There, Abney was able to cut astonishing 2/3 of his AF and climb from 32nd place all the way to top 10. He also got his 1st WR on CM SC lap where he was the 1st person to ever land the Weathertenko SC.

This is all for now, rest will be updated before the end of the year.

- November first half - And everyone was like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA -
by Chraizy at 12:44 pm

Hi guys it's Chris! Back from a very stressing MK weekend, and here to provide you the newest news! Let's go:

New Players

Daniel Lunczer is back! Well, not a new player, but he decided to put his times back to the site, under his real name. He is starting at #11 again, with a slightly lower AF as he got a few PRs in his abscence.
Darius Austin is joining SC, as he hit the weathertenko and thought: hey! That's a free national record, right? :D No, jokes aside, he hit the number 5 time on the flap, which let's him debute at #406.
Josh Randall is a SC only joiner aswell, with 2 KD times he debuted at #506.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer Was active here, with the first ever sub on LR 3lap! The PAL sub, which he wanted to reach for so long, which was so much talked about, can it be reached? Yes, it can. Matthias took it at the smallest possible margin and the new WR stands now at 1'57"99 (NTSC: 1'38"13)!!
The next WR happened on FS, where Daniel Burbank hit his very first 3lap WR, on the same track where he got his first ever WR. it's Frappe Snowland, he improved Matthias old time by a small margin, and reached a 2'00"55 (NTSC: 1'40"26). However, Matthias decided at the very same day to play this track aswell, and unfortunately to Dan he was able to get it back: Matthias improved it by 0"06 more and stands now at 2'00"49 (NTSC: 1'40"21)!!

Shortcut

A huge collection of new WRs happened, due to the new Weathertenko SC. I won't list all the WR holders that held it (there weren't that many actually), but if you are interested in how many times it has been hit, you can check the MK64 Forum section.

People who hit the Weathertenko: Vincent, Darius, Marcos, Beck and Pat.

The 3lap WR holder is Beck Abney, who got the hang of the weathertenko as first of all. Now he dominates the 3laps with a time of 52"54 (PAL: 1'03"17)!
The flap WR holder on CM is Vincent aka VAJ, and man, you can believe me when I say he was like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! Vincent just destroyed the old flap WR here with a lap 2 hit, the only one so far. The time is a 3"26 (PAL: 3"92)!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 World Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved LR and FS 3laps. Both led him to new WRs, but not an AF cut, so he remains at the same AF.
#12 (12) Daniel Burbank improved 7 PRs all over the cups, with really nice cuts overall. His biggest success was with no doubt FS, but also his LR times went well down. He cut almost an entire AF point and is even closer to Greg and the #11 spot!
#27 (27) Beck Abney improved 30 PRs! That's almost the complete timeset, with a few really nice cuts, which leads him to a total AF cut of 7.8 AF points! That's a 20% cut of his previous AF! Beck got 4 new GOD times, which gives him a total of 27/32 non-SC GODs! Beck passed 9 players, and his best times of the update were his DK times, ranked 14th and 9th! It's his first TOP10 in non-SC, and not everyone could say that he got his first TOP10 on such a hard course!
#41 (42) Michael Arends is ruling tracks again, cutting over a second off of his KD 3lap, and a smaller cut on the flap. His 3lap is a #7 time, which is his highest ranked time so far! Michael passed 2 players with a nice 1.1 AF cut.
#65 (63) Darius Austin got 2 RRy PRs and also a new GOD time on the flap, which is his 11th GOD time. He passed 1 player with a 1.7 AF point cut. The TOP60 is not too far away, a similar cut next half could get him there!
#77 (77) David Moll played some KB and RRy this half, resulting in 3 PRs. His KB flap is a new GOD time, which is his 5th in total now. David also got a sub 2'56 3lap on RRy, which is ranked 82nd. He passed 2 players with a 1.5 AF point cut.
#104 (102) Lachlan Young improved both KD PRs, with the 3lap ranked at 122nd and the flap being a new TOP100 at 95th. Lachlan passed 3 players with a nice 2.5 AF cut. The flap is also a new Legend time. He is
not too far from the TOP100 now, only a bit more!
#119 (119) Christopher Zartler got 5 new records on LR, KD and MR 3laps and CM dual. All of the times are close to the TOP100, the CM 3lap is a new TOP100 time and also a Legend. Chris passed 4 players with a 3.8 AF cut, and is also close to the Legend ranks. Keep it up!
#175 (176) Kyle Begley got 2 little PRs on SL 3lap and YV flap. He cut 0.06 AF points, but didn't pass anyone.
#228 (231) Thomas Bundschuh got a complete new timeset, with many strong TOP300 times, even a few TOP200s! Thomas passed 117 players with an enormous cut of 112 AF points!! He also jumped from Elite F to Elite A, and is very close to the King standards! Thomas is on a good way to the TOP200, but if he can recreate what he did this time he will probably fly well into it!
#255 (259) Anastasia Steingold improved 9 PRs on MMF, WS and RRy dual, on BC and DK 3laps and YV flap. All of them are close to TOP200 and TOP200 times. She's improving well with another King time on WS flap and also earned a few new Elite times. She passed 15 players with a very nice 17 AF points cut!
#273 (276) Brandon Knodel improved 5 records and made a 2 AF points cut, but got passed by 2 players above, so he lost a rank. Brandon is still going strong with a few TOP300 time and many close to TOP300 times.
#276 (279) Lewis Richards got 6 PRs, eliminating 3 Master times and he also gained a new King time on MMF flap! He passed 3 players with a 4.7 AF points cut.
#283 (285) Naveen Selvam improved 16 records, and got many new Elite times, and even got rid of a Semo Pro A time! He passed 25 players with a big 24 AF points cut and also reached the Elite C ranks!
#296 (299) Anna Moon played some BC 3lap and maintained her current rank.
#366 (368) Tyler Chambers played 3 tracks and got 4 PRs, which resulted in a 1.8 AF cut. He passed 5 players and is close to the Master C ranks. Tyler got a nice BC flap, ranked 269th!
#824 (526) Jayden Ly played some BC 3lap and improved it from 554th to 340th! It helped him to pass 2 players.
#633 (674) Daniel Samspon improved 6 PRs and passed 8 players with a 8.5 AF point cut. Most notable PR was his LR flap, which is ranked well in the TOP600 area.
#637 (681) Mark Vizza improved 21 PRs, all of them by a pretty good margin. He cut 14 AF points and passed 17 players. His ARR also improved to Advanced D!
#972 (972) Alysia Tolhuis was able to finish another track, and also got a new double PR for MMF! For such a young member those times are really impressive!


SC Movement

MK64 SC and Universal Time Trial Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved both of his CM times and cut 0.05 AF points. He also reached the CM flap WR, see the WR section for more information.
#10 (10) Beck Abney got 6 new records, in Flower and Special Cup. Beck cut 0.9 AF points and came closer to #9 Ben Miller.
#24 (25) Pat Bertovich improved his 2 CM times aswell and reached a new GOD with the help of the Weathertenko on the CM 3lap. Pat cut 0.7 AF points and is only 1.5 AF points away from Noah Gordon.
#34 (34) Marcos Vinicius Alves also got 2 CM PRs and also added KD times to his timeset with his first KD hit. The CM flap hit brought him a good AF cut, all in all he cut 4.6 AF points and passed 4 players!

That's it for now guys. Join me again next time!

- October 2nd half - SMK, MK64 and MKDD are still providing WRs. Classic Karts are the best! -
by Chraizy at 9:08 am

hey guys! It's Chris. I am a bit late, but I saw an opportunity for a WR in SMK, so I spend a bit time there, forgot a bit about the update... :D but now! I will present you the newest news of the 2nd half of October! Spooky PRs, even more spooky WRs, and 2 new female players! Seems MK64 is getting more famous with the girls eh..? Hehe, well, let's see what happened:

New Players

Anastasia Steingold joined our site with 32 times. She joined with a pretty high standard, Elite C, at #274. You don't see that all days. Stacy told us that she plays MK64 already a while, but finally decided to join the site.
Alysia Tolhuis joined the site at #972 with 2 times on the first 2 3laps, namely LR and MMF. She will probably become much better, I mean, with a teacher like VAJ... you can only become good, right? :)
Mark Vizza decided to join the SC side of the site. With 8 PRs he popped into the charts at #355!

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer is back in business! He tried his hands on LR, and sadly barely missed the sub with an improvement of his own WR by 0"02. The new WR is 1'58"00 (NTSC: 1'38"14)!!
But also Daniel Burbank was active, hitting the PAL WR on FS 3lap aswell this half! He tied Matthias here with a 2'00"70 (NTSC: 1'40"38)!!

Shortcut

An unexpected SC WR from a Brazilian player. No, it's not Karlo, it's not Marcelo. It's Marcos Vinicius Alves! He improved his FS SC flap and tied Myles' recent WR with a 4"89 (PAL: 5"88)!! Well done on your first WR :)

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player this half was Time Trial World Champ Matthias Rustemeyer. He improved his own LR WR (see World Records section) and maintained his AF.
#11 (12) Daniel Burbank improved 4 PRs this half, namely KB flap, KD dual and FS 3lap. The flaps are new TOP10s, and his KD is sharp aswell, sitting at #13. Daniel cut 0.4 AF points to come closer to the other Dan, who luckily showed us a sign of life yesterday! Daniel Burbank is not very far from the TOP10, and with his WR he also has a slight advantage on the WRL.
#36 (36) Beck Abney improved 3 PRs on KD 3lap and TT dual. His TT times are 2 new GODs, which gives him a total of 23 NON-SC GODs. Beck passed one player with a nice 1.6 AF point cut.
Not far behind we have #42 (44) Michael Arends, who improved KTB and KD dual. All 4 times are new GOD times, and all of them except for the flap are new TOP50s! Michael has a total of 22 Non-SC GODs now, only 5 dual GODs are missing. One of them are the MMF GODs, which should be easily in his reach! Michael also reached the Legend A ARR rank, and also reached the TOP50 this half! That's a lot of achievments with only 4 PRs!
#79 (79) David Moll improved his FS flap by ~0"15 seconds and passed 14 players on the chart. He cut 0.3 AF points and is closing in to the next spot.
#122 (123) Christopher Zartler got 17 new PRs, 4 of them are new Legend times. Chris got many close to TOP100 times, and also a TOP100 time on MMF flap, which is ranked 93rd! He passed 13 players with a 15 AF point cut and also reached King A in the progress, well done!
#175 (176) Kyle Begley improved 3 PRs on WS dual and SL flap. The WS times are new TOP200s and SL barely missed the TOP200 spot. Kyle passed 5 players with a 2.4 AF points cut, and is very close to the next 2 spots. After that he will face a little AF graveyerd though.
#297 (230) Tim van Ham sent us 14 missing times, ranked between 120th - 298th. He almost completed his timeset, only missing the SL times. Tim made a huge jump from #525 to #230, passing 295 players! He also jumped from Expert F right to Elite B! His potential lies a lot higher though; if he sends the missing SL times he will probably be ranked as high King.
#271 (275) Brandon Knodel improved 25 PRs and made a really nice cut of 41 ranks with a 40 AF points cut. Brandon hit many new Elite times, which helped him to improve his ARR from Elite F to Elite C!
#278 (282) Lewis Richards improved 6 PRs and passed 8 players with a 6.7 AF point cut. The cuts weren't too big, but he is getting more and more Elite times!
#295 (298) Anna Moon improved both MMF times into the TOP300 and even got a #222 ranked flap! It's a King D time and her second Non-SC King. Anna cut 1.7 AF points, but didn't pass anyone due to the activity and new players.
#307 (310) Naveen Selvam got 4 new records on LR and MR dual. His LR saw a small cut on both 3lap and flap, while his MR times got a massive boost into the King D area, and low TOP200. The 3lap is even a TOP200 time. All of them helped him to cut 5.2 AF points and pass 4 players.
#342 (348) Thomas Bundschuh played this half and scored 19 new records, He finally decided to use all 3 shrooms on the flap tries and made immense cuts! He passed 70 players with a huge 73 AF point cut. He also jumped from Pro D to Elite F!
#647 (704) Marc Vizza passed 55 players this half with a 46 AF points cut. he scored many new TOP700s and is now the newest Advanced F player!
#905 (852) Brett Nowotny sent us 9 times for his timeset and improved his BB flap. Most of his times are ranked around 750th, but his BB times are a lot better, ranked 525th for the 3lap and 340th for the flap! Brett passed 86 players and easily reached the TOP900!


SC Movement

The highest active player was #16 (17) Matthias Rustemeyer again. Matthias improved his MR flap to the 8th rank and is now equal to his 3lap. Only 0"03 seperate him from Daniels german record. Will he go for it?
#38 (38) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 3 PRs, including his new FS flap WR tie. Marcos passed 4 players with a 3.9 AF points cut and easily joined the SC TOP40! Well done!
#124 (129) Anthony Caiulo played some MR flap and improved his flap by a bit to pass 19 players on the chart. He passed 1 player with a 0.7 AF point cut.
#142 (154) Lewis Richards landed the KD SC for the first time, with a style that nobody has seen before! You can check the video in the forum (it's not a faster strat, but it looks really awesome!). He also improved his TT flap, all in all he cut 0.8 Af points and passed William Lacey.

Well that's it for this time! Join me again next time :)

- October 1st half - Old Legends -
by Chraizy at 8:20 am

Hey guys, it's Chris! Again, sorry for the delay, I was at my gradparents' golden marriage, so I got not too much time this weekend (at least at the PC). However, I found some time now and we will see what happened during the last 2 weeks!

New Players

Thomas Bundschuh joined our site with a complete timeset at #418.
Steffen Hagelskjaer sent us 4 times on TT and CM dual, with pretty impressive TT ranks at #125 and #134. His debuting rank is #842. SC: #243.
Brett Nowotny joined our site with only one time on BB flap, which is ranked 405th. His debuting rank in the AF ranks is #938.


World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank went for the sub in PAL aswell, and here he goes: a 38"47 (NTSC: 31"99) flap on FS flap!!

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player was... #2 (2) Michael Jongerius! He came back to send us 2 new MMF PRs, which cut not too much, but the flap went a rank down and is now a bit safer again to not fall outside the TOP10. Michael didn't cut any AF though due to the other active players.
#7 (8) Thomas Jordet Larsen was the other surprising comeback to the site. Thomas sent us 2 new LR times, the 3lap saw a big cut of 0"15 seconds, which helped him to pass 6 players and reach a new TOP10. The flap went down by two hundreths and tied him with an old rival. Thomas cut 0.24 points, but didn't came significantly close to Karlo in the AF ranks.
#12 (12) Daniel Burbank got 5 new records on LR, TT, FS 3lap and RRy dual. He got 3 new TOP20s and is coming closer to the #11 spot with a 0.6 AF cut.
#52 (49) Stefan Kok improved his MR 3lap by one tenth and passed 5 players on the chart. He didn't cut much AF but enough to stay in front of #49 (52) Michael Arends for now. Michael showed us again what dedication can bring. He skilled his way up to the double GOD on LR. Notable is the jump fron King A to GOD on the 3lap, which is definitely no easy GOD! Michael cut 4 points with those 2 PRs and passed 2 players, closing in to the TOP50.
#79 (79) David Moll got 5 PRs this half and got a new GOD on SL flap! It's his 4th GOD now and also a new TOP60. David passed one player with a 2.4 AF point cut. TOP75 is only 3 AF points away, so a few more PRs could help him to reach it!
#179 (181) Kyle Begley got 4 new records on KTB, CM and SL 3laps and YV flap. All of them are ranked around 190th except YV, which is 141st. Kyle cut 3.8 AF points and passed 7 players with it.
#285 (290) Lewis Richards got 5 new records and passed 4 players with a healthy 5.9 AF points cut. Notable record was his RRy flap, which went almost sub 49 and is a new TOP300 for him.
#299 (300) Justus Gilstrap improved his entire timeset and reached many Elite, even King times! Justus got an enormous 87 AF points cut to pass 90 players and perfectly reach the TOP300!
#311 (314) Naveen Selvam improved 10 PRs and passed 23 players with a 21 AF points cut. Naveen got a few nice TOP300 times and is on a good way to the TOP300! He also became an Elite player with this update, well done!
#315 (316) Brandon Knodel got 7 new records, one of them an Elite A YV flap, which is TO250 and almost a King time. Brandon passed 11 players with a nice 15 AF points cut, but wasn't able to hold Naveem off his back. He needs to get a few more PRs now to repass him!
#580 (604) Anthony Caiulo got 5 PRs, which are pretty unbalanced, as they range from 670th to 397th. He still got some really nice cuts and even 2 Elite times and passed 17 players with a 18 AF points cut.


SC Movement

#11 (11) Jake Walter improved FS and DK 3laps, both are ranked 9th now and cut him 0.19 AF points in total. The FS 3lap is a new GOD time and gives him a total of 14 SC GODs, and 15 total.
#124 (13) Anthony Caiulo sent us 6 times, 2 of them were new times on YV dual. He cut around 7 AF points and passed 6 players to reach the TOP130!

That's it! You might ask why I haven't mentioned Duncan's name so far in any news... well, it's a bit weird to write the wrong name for the person you knew when he was active and even battled with. However, I can't change his mind, but still hope that he will come back someday :)

- September 2nd Half - 1000 Players reached in MK64! -
by Chraizy at 10:51 am

Hey guys! It's Chris. We finally reached 1000 players on the MK64 PP! Let's see what else happened this half:

New Players

Christopher Lange joined our site with a complete timeset at #212. He is also the 1000th player on the MK64 PP! SC: #151.
A bit before him joined Naveen Selvam who also submitted 32 times and joined our site at #337.
Eric Smits joined a bit lower, but also with a complete timeset at #546.

World Records

No new nice WRs...

Non-SC Movement

#13 (13) Daniel Burbank improved 9 records in PAL. He is getting really strong times in PAL, for example a perfect sub 5'56 on RRd 3lap! He also subbed SL 3lap. Dan cut 1.4 AF points and is closing in to Trystan for the 12th rank in the AF charts.
#37 (37) Beck Abney improved 2 flaps on WS and RRy. The cuts weren't too big, but he still got a 0.2 AF cut. The next player is still 1.6 AF points away, so he got to work a bit more!
#52 (49) Stefan Kok improved 13 PRs, cut 5.3 AF points and passed 4 players to reach the TOP50! It's a glorious milestone, big congratz! On the other news, Stefan got a few really strong times on MR flap and WS 3lap, which are 26th and 31st. On Banshee Boardwalk he achieved the flap GOD, which is now his 10th GOD!
#51 (54) Michael Arends is continuing to improve his RRy times, the 3lap now even became a TOP10 time at 2'52"87! The flap is 13th with a failed sub 56 at 56"00. Michael improved 0.09 AF points and maintains his rank. Which track will he destroy next?
#82 (80) David Moll was able to improve some MK64 PRs this half and got TT and BC dual PRs. TT became a new double Legend and both are now TOP100s. His BC flap is really close to the GOD time and almost TOP50. It'd be his first TOP50 in non-sc, go and get it David!
#97 (99) Patrick Loseth got a huuge cut this half with 20 new records and a massive 42 AF points cut! He passed 38 players and barely popped into the TOP100! He also became the newest Legend player this half, that's a quite nice double achievement. Patrick got 12 new Legend times and 6 new TOP100s. His last nonTOP200 times got improved, his SL time even went from #221 to #89, congratz!
#107 (105) Lachlan Young got 3 new records on TT dual and FS flap. The cuts weren't too big, and resulted into a 0.3 AF cut.
#187 (188) Kyle Begley got 6 new records, 3 of them are new TOP200s. His KTB flap looks sharp and almost became a Legend time. Kyle passed 5 players with a nice 6.1 AF cut. He also became a King D player in the progress!
#292 (294) Lewis Richards got 11 new records which resulted in a 15 AF points cut. The cuts were constant and he passed 16 players to become the newest TOP300 member.
#294 (296) Anna Moon improved her RRd dual but lost a rank due to the high joiner Christopher. Still, her RRd times cut 20 ranks off of the 3lap and the flap.
#325 (327) Brandon Knodel improved 17 times, mainly in the Mush and Flower cups. Brandon passed 27 players with a 26 AF points cut. He also became the newest Elite F player! Brandon got a few nice times on MMF, KTB and TT flaps, which are all TOP300 times!
#440 (335) Aron Langerak sent us 28 new records, resulting in a huge 76 AF points cut! He passed over 70 players to easily join the TOP400! His timeset is very consistent with TOP300 times, the best times so far are his MMF times, with the 3lap almost being TOP200 and both King F!
#387 (390) Justus Gilstrap got 15 new records on all cups and passed 26 players to join the TOP400 with style. He also reached the Pro B ranks! His LR 3lap is pretty strong at #290 and the KD flap even sits at #216!
#588 (621) Anthony Caiulo improved his MR 3lap and passed 21 players there.

SC Movement

MK64 SC and universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis finally joined the group of the guys who hit the weathertenko SC on CM! He almost subbed 10 seconds with his time, in PAL it almost subbed 12 seconds. He passed one player and regained his flap total #1!
#10 (10) Beck Abney improved 5 PRs of which 2 are new GOD times. They were achieved on KD and YV 3lap. YV is one of the harder GODs in SC, so it's nice to see he nailed it! Beck cut 0.5 AF points and distanced himself from #11 (11) Jake Walter, who also PRed this half with KD and FS flaps. He subbed 5 seconds on the FS flap and gained 6 ranks with it, which resulted in a 0.27 AF cut.
#25 (25) Pat Bertovich also joined the group of weathertenkos! His time jumped from a already really strong 12th rank to an almost sub 8 NTSC flap and #2! Well done!
#45 (42) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 3 PRs this half on RRy 3lap, DK and RRd flaps. He cut exactly 3 AF points and achieved the GOD time on RRd flap with his very first spiral hit! He passed 5 players and is on his way to the TOP40.
#140 (136) Anthony Caiulo improved his FS 3lap and cut 1.8 AF points. He passed 2 players and is closing in to Burbank.
#153 (155) Lewis Richards sent us 2 new records for TT and improved his WS 3lap. He passed 12 players and cut 5.3 AF points.

That's it for this time. Sadly no new WRs, but many active players and really strong players fight their way to the very top. Hope you enjoyed the news! 'till next time!

- September 1st Half - You could advertise right here!... I'm too tired to think about something productive... -
by Chraizy at 11:13 am

Hey guys! It's Chris. I am coming from a 3 weeks vacation and I am feeling tired after 3 days of work. But don't worry - I will still deliver you the latest news of MK64 world! Here we go:


New Players

Jayden Ly joined our site with 20 PRs, ranked from mid 500s to low 200s. Jayden starts at #524, with a lot of potential upwards as he got a few really nice times already! SC: #286.
Alex Matteson joins us with 32 times at #896.

World Records

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis got a new WR on DKJP, with a nice improvement for the flap! It's a 0"05 improvement, which is a lot, and it now stands at 4'06 (NTSC: 3"38)!
You think without non-SC WRs Matthias couldn't have been active this time? Well, that's wrong... he surprised us with his first SC WR! It was TT 3lap, which barely improved Zorans' WR from July 2013. The new time is a 1'49"14 (NTSC: 1'30"77)!!
The flap wasn't safe aswell. Allthough it's only an NTSC tie, but still lies 0"01 behind in PAL, it's still counted as WR. He tied Zorans TT SC flap at 34"67 (NTSC: 28"83)!
Last but not least we have an old veteran here. Myles Bukrim shows up and successfully demonstrated how to be successful on FS SC flap. He broke the tie with the other 2 players and is now 0"01 in front of them. The new time is a 4"89 (PAL: 5"88)!!


Non-SC Movement

#14 (14) Daniel Burbank was the highest active player this half and improved 4 PRs on TT and WS dual. All of them went into the TOP20, and made him cut 0.6 AF points and closed the gap to Jeffrey. He is only 0.8 points away from #13.
#37 (37) Beck Abney improved 18 PRs and got 2 new GODs. He got a few really nice cuts and made it to a 4.6 AF point cut to pass 2 players. The next few spots shouldn't be a problem at all for him, with the cuts he is doing lately he can probably reach TOP30 within the next 2 weeks! He also became the latest Legend+ player! Well done!
#56 (53) Stefan Kok improved 24 PRs and got 4 GOD times. Stefan is on a good way to the TOP30, as he is PRing like crazy lately and passed 14 players with that update! He cut 12 AF points and is also the newest Legend B player, almost even reaching Legend A!
#54 (51) Michael Arends improved his RRy times with dedication and got the GOD at the 3lap. But not only this, he just completely destroyed his old PR and got a sub 2'53 3lap which is an incredibly strong #12 time!! He passed Nathan on the AF lists and is closing in for the Legend A rank.
#293 (295) Anna Moon improved her MR times and got a 303rd ranked 3lap and a 235th ranked flap. Both helped her to pass 4 more players and reach another King time!
#306 (310) Lewis Richards improved 17 PRs and got a few nice TOP300s. He is filling his timeset with Elite times now and became an Elite D player with this update! He passed 25 players and is closing in to the TOP300.
#498 (409) Aron Langerak improved 28 PRs and sent us his missing WS times. He is on a good way to become a great player in this game as he is already constantly hitting TOP400 times! He passed over 400 players with those PRs and went from Beginner C straight to Pro D! If he keeps up the progress I can see him being TOP300 by the next update easily. Go for it!
#685 (604) Mark Chang improved MMF flap and sent us a missing time of DK 3lap. Both made him cut 8.4 AF points and pass 9 players. He also reached the Advanced B standard!

SC Movement

MK64 SC and Universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved 2 PRs on WS 3lap and the improvement of his DK flap WR (see WRs). His AF got decreased though, as several other players challenged his times this time.
#6 (6) Myles Bukrim for example untied the FS SC flap which made him lose a spot. Myles long abscence didn't let him rust, though, he got this WR within a few tries!
#10 (10) Beck Abney got 5 new records, 1 of them is a new GOD; RRy flap. He also got a great YV flap, also a new TOP10. He cut 2 AF points in total and easily passed #11 (11) Jake Walter, who PRed on TT 3lap and FS dual. He wasn't able to keep his TOP10 spot for now, but still got a few nice times nonetheless. Jake cut 0.4 AF points and is secured for now.
#16 (17) Matthias Rustemeyer could probably be a threat for him though, as he is boosting through SC lately! With the TT dual WR he owns all 4 WRs on one track! Matthias also improved FS flap which made him cut 39 spots on this course alone! In total he passed 6 players with a 2.4 AF cut.
#49 (47) Marcos Vinicius Alves was impressed by Myles tutorial video and improved his FS flap straight from 90th to 9th! Additionally he was able to get the YV flap GOD aswell, scoring him 2 new GODs with one update. He passed 4 players and is the newest TOP50 member!
#163 (167) Lewis Richards sent us 4 times to improve 1.6 AF points and pass 1 player. Lewis almost reached the TOP100 on CM, and is working on the other courses aswell.
#407 (460) Mark Chang sent us a DK flap time, but didn't pass anyone with it. He cut 3 ranks on the charts though.

- August 2nd half - It's not that I like it warm, but it's reeeeally cold for summer? -
by Chraizy at 12:06 pm

Hey guys! Summer is already over, but the heat in WRs will definitely not stop that soon! Nice battles and stronger WRs than ever were presented this month. Let's see!

New Players

Aron Langerak finally joins MK64! It's the last game he needed to have all 3 classic kart games listed, and now he's on the way to become the #1 classic karter! It seems the controller he currently uses is not good anymore, but he already got a new one on the way. Let's see how far he can get, as he is a MKDD pro and currently also a high level SMK player. Is this the next MK he will destroy? He joins us at #836. SC: #480.
Jonathan Toole-Charignon joined the SC side of MK64 and sent us 4 times for KD and RRd dual. The KD times were incredible strong, the 3lap is over 4 times worse than the second worst time here. But the flap is even stronger, the second worst time here is over EIGHT times better than Jons time! Fried will not approve sleeping while playing, the ranking for this probably would have been reeeeally bad if he saw Jonathan playing. Still, Jon got a new record for the longest time to finish a 3lap race and a flap race. Not only for KD, but across every track... He's currently ranked at #396.


World Records

Non-Shortcut

There are a few new World Records.

Matthias Rustemeyer hit a new World record on FS flap. He beat Dan by 0"01, BUT! Daniel Burbank made a comeback just in time! He beat Matthias back AND achieved the NTSC sub of 32 seconds as the very first person ever. Incredible! It's one of those subs no one thought it would ever be achieved. The new time is a 31"98 (PAL: 38"45)!!!

Matthias also was able to get Laceys WR on DK 3lap. But William Lacey just fought back and easily beat the time TWICE. He got a 2'12"91 (NTSC: 1'50"54) two times!! Well done!


Non-SC Movement

MK64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved 3 PRs, of which 2 would be WR, if others weren't active. He cut some AF though, as he also improved his DK flap and tied William for the 2nd place here. 4 spots between him and the 1.000 AF. Can he do it?
#5 (6) William Lacey achieved a new WR on DK 3lap. His streak of over 11 years holding that WR is over though. His AF remains the same, as well as his other ranks.
#14 (14) Daniel Burbank won the battle on FS and remained at the same spot. The time was well spent, next time he will probably focus on other tracks again, or will he try the 3lap again?!
#39 (39) Beck Abney got 5 new records on KTB and WS 3lap, MR flap and DK dual. KTB was a new GOD time, which brings him up to 19 non-sc GODs. Beck also got a nice TOP20 flap on DK flap, with a pretty good cut, getting him a 43 seconds PAL sub.
#53 (55) Michael Arends got 5 new records on CM and RRy dual and RRd flap. All of them are new GODs (except RRy 3lap). Michael is making great progress as always, as his RRy flap came out of the TOP100 and is now ranked 36th! He cut 6.2 AF points total and passed 6 players. 7.4 AF points are between him and the TOP50. Will he reach it until the next news update?
#68 (67) Stefan Kok gained a lot of ranks with 25 new PRs! He got a really strong double PR on MR which is ranked 33rd and 29th. In total he dropped 12.1 AF points down and passed 12 players for a TOP75 spot!
#84 (83) Stephen Meakings got a double PR on YV and passed Patrick for the next spot. The 3lap was a nice 1'29 sub and brought him a 72nd ranked time.
#106 (105) Lachlan Young improved 6 PRs and got a 5 AF points cut. He passed 5 players and is only 5 more spots away from the TOP100. In ARR he achieved the Legend F status! His best PR was a CM flap, ranked 68th and is also a new Legend time.
#138 (137) Patrick Loseth set 8 new records across every cup and achieved a few nice times, one of them is a new 71st ranked MMF flap time! He barely missed the GOD time here, but it's still a really nice cut of over 100 ranks! Patrick passed 14 players and is now in the TOP150! His ARR also dropped and is now at King B!
#190 (193) Kyle Begley got 7 new records mainly on Mushroom and Special Cup. The cuts weren't too big, but he got 2 new TOP200s and passed 2 players with a nice 6.2 AF points cut.
#278 (284) Patrick Ode got 7 new records aswell and was able to pass 8 players. He got 2 new TOP300 times and was able to reach the Elite C standard in the progress. He destroyed 3 remaining Master times and is coming closer to a 32/32 Elite timeset. Moo Moo Farm might be a challenge, but he will definitely reach those Elite times soon aswell!
#297 (299) Anna Moon was able to reach the TOP300 with style! With 19 new records she was able to barely get into it, by passing 37 players with a big 36 AF points cut! She got many new Elite times, and reached the Elite D standard. She got many nice times, a new King time on RRy flap across them, which is also a new TOP200!
#303 (305) Ryan Dunlap got a new KD 3lap PR, but got passed by Anna, so he lost a spot. The 3lap cut 20 ranks though, and is now at 231st.
#330 (335) Lewis Richards got 21 new records and passed 35 players to easily reach the TOP350! He eliminated many of his old non-TOP400 ranks and got a lot of low #300s. Lewis got a 33.3 AF point cut and also passed a whole standard and is closer to Elite than ever!
#357 (362) Jonathan Toole-Charignon played more non-sc and passed 146 players with an enormous cut of 142 AF points! Jon got a wide range of PRs now, ranging from out of TOP500 up to 208th on YV flap. He already achieved a few King times, and if he could get his hands on a N64, he could definitely reach some higher ranks!
#413 (415) Justus Gilstrap got 26 new records and passed 54 players with a 65 AF points cut. His PRs range from out of TOP500 to mid 200s aswell. He already got a few Elite times, and is close the TOP400. His ARR is now also almost a whole standard higher, sitting at Pro D now!
#426 (425) Rich Hatch got a new WS 3lap and gained a bit AF, but sadly he got passed by 2 players, so no rank gain for him.
#720 (784) Craig Sargent got 6 new records and passed 12 players. He cut 14 AF points and got a stronger LR dual time. His 3lap is TOP600 and also a Semi-Pro F time!
#746 (819) Scott Campbell got 30 new records and passed 47 players with a nice 36 AF points cut. He got a few nice #600-ish times, and is on a good way to break out of the TOP800 soon!


SC Movement

#11 (10) Jake Walter improved 4 records on LR and FS 3laps and WS dual. He cut a few ranks, but not enough to come much closer to Ben on the 9th spot. He should worry about his TOP10 spot though, as #10 (11) Beck Abney is incredible close. With 7 new PRs, 2 of them are new GODs (which leads to a total SC GOD count of 10) he cut over 5 AF points, mostly coming from WS dual. He is only 1 rank behind Jake in AF, so any PR could get him past Jake! In the WRL he already passed him, making him officially a TOP10 member.
#68 (77) Patrick Loseth got 3 new records on CM dual and MR flap. His CM is looking sharper than ever with a big 10 seconds cut on the 3lap. MR flap was an even bigger cut. He came out of the TOP200 and improved it down to 37th! That's insane, and to top it it's also a Legend B time! Well done!
#165 (168) Lewis Richards posted 4 new times for his timeset on FS and CM dual. He also improved DK and RRd dual. He got a strong cut of 42.5 AF points and passed over 100 players! He almost landed in the TOP150, which is not too far away.

That's it! Join me again next time!
