PAL Activity:

#9 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion of France, has been unstoppable this week as he unleashes his potential with strong NBT PRs on several tracks. The highlight though is definitely his 5/5 Ghost Valley 1 where he has reached 1'01" level and his average finish gap closing the mark towards Babjar and the rivals above.

#53 Russell Horwood of the UK delivered six new PRs on PAL, with most of the work on Ghost Valley 2 and Donut Plains 3 with solid results. He also improved BC1 lap and MC4 course and altogether cut over an average finish point. Still a gap to Smolen but he is working his way there.



NTSC Activity:

#33 Dan Hoernemann, the Minnesota State Champion from USA made a nice return to SMK following his recent CDM registration and hit a couple of nice PRs on Koopa Beach 1, and maintains his current rank.

#145 Fabrice Baro of Canada made a Ghost Valley 2 lap cut and some nice improvements to Rainbow Road with some very nice round numbers. A sub 1'29" will happen very soon there.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in the Netherlands worked on a number of laps this week, but DP1 gets ever closer to the sub 1'11" mark and Ghost Valley 1 was very impressive with a 1'01" time and a great lap. He continues to close the gap to Multiplayer CDM World Champion, Florent Lecoanet.

#9 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion continues his climb on PAL focusing on similar tracks again and making good cuts to gain a few more ranks and shift into the Top 10. The Donut Plains times were the main focus, there is an average finish gap to Babjar next but we are sure he will close that in time.

#28 Leyla Hasso achieved her first ever NBT 5/5 Ghost Valley 1 time this week which is a superb result, after working on that track and a lap cut alongside. She has managed to pass USA's PAL Time Trial Champion, Joe Bernier following her latest times.


NTSC Activity:

#26 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion, and 5th fastest in USA returned to SMK with a PR cut on Ghost Valley 2 lap, to answer to a challenge from a new rival there. He has gained a couple of ranks including passing Christophe Paquin.

#30 David Moll, the UK #2 on NTSC played some Bowser Castle 1 course time with a cut there slipping him just ahead of Boucher for the Top 30.

#66 Andy Lundeen, the Mario Kart Super Circuit Time Trial World Champion on the Non-Shortcut table returns to SMK after acquiring a SNES. He has revamped his entire Time Trial set and... *goes to lie down*.... He climbed an insane amount of ranks this week already. His driving potential is very strong and once he kicks into the NBT, lets just say that the US Rankings will get an interesting challenger, and then the World's elite on NTSC! One to watch and very exciting climb! Andy, the 2nd fastest karter of North Carolina State is now ranked 17th in the USA.

#146 Fabrice Baro from Canada played Donut Plains 1, Choco Island 1 and Rainbow Road lap gaining some ranks and is approaching Costa Rica's 2nd fastest, Elizondo.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in the Netherlands continues his Dutch Record hitting with a strong Mario Circuit 1 time there, with more potential. Alongside that he delivered a pair of Donut Plains 2 records where he made some slight cuts, with a sub 1'26" course time.

#11 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion from France, who shocked everybody with his NTSC adventures at the start of the year has made a return to PAL Time Trials. Starting off with some Donut Plains 1 PRs where he is hitting times in the Top 10 region already and a nice Mario Circuit 1 lap. He passes Italian Champion, Angelo Di Vano this week; we will expect some more soon.

#292 Ashraf Khan went all "wrath of Khan" on the Mario Circuits, some of his favourite tracks. Seeking out the sub 1'03" is now at break point on Mario Circuit 1. His Mario Circuit 2 and 3 times are getting much sharper and the 4th track following close by. Ash gains two ranks on PAL in the World, and a UK National rank climb to 63rd after passing Croydon's 5th fastest, Darren Coates.



NTSC Activity:

#31 David Moll, the 2nd fastest in the UK on NTSC, made a very nice return to SMK Time Trials this week; Mario Circuit 1 lap was definitely a highlight as he strikes close to the sub 11 barrier there with some great NBT. 8 other PRs on various tracks have helped him to gain three ranks this week and he is very close to the Top 30 there.

He finished the night with a good full speed run sub 1'35" on Rainbow Road.

#82 Anna Moon of the UK made a random small return to NTSC SMK during a Mario Kart 64 adventure. She delivered a small lap on Bowser Castle 1, gaining a couple of ranks on the NTSC ladder.

PAL Activity:

#29 Leyla Hasso played Rainbow Road today, with a nice cut on the course time, and after persevering on the lap, an NBT cut was made following a small Non-NBT improvement. Leyla has passed Swedish Champion Kalle Videkull, and for the first time also passes an old friend of Team UK, Matthew McCarthy to become the 3rd fastest karter in the UK on PAL.

#82 Thorsten Fellberg of Germany was the first surprise comeback this week; a Non-NBT specialist with a lot of power, this week showing us some great skills on Ghost Valley 2 with several cuts and a low 1'03" course time. He is closing the gap to Mario Bruser and Michael Barth, with some other tracks we look forward to see his next climb.

#291 Ashraf Khan of the UK continued the pressure this week by playing a lot more tracks, including his strongest Mario Circuit 3 where he subbed 1'38". Ash "the Wrath of" Khan has shot well past the Top 300 already, and is fast on the trail of his friend and rival, Michael Springer.



NTSC Activity:

#14 Tyler Worley, the NTSC Time Trial Champion of USA is now in direct competition with Ha Nyan of Japan with his PRs this week; Mario Circuit 2 getting some longboosting action in for both course and lap times plus a nice Ghost Valley 1 lap cut. There are four players fairly close ranked above, including Ha Nyan. We look forward to see him challenge those ranks!

#104 Samuel Gomez took on Mario Circuit 2 NTSC long boosting this week with a small cut to the 5-lap. Donut Plains 2 also had a Non-NBT cut which is getting ever closer to the sub 1'30" barrier.

#148 Fabrice Baro of Canada hit Rainbow Road for more points there as he pushes the course time towards the low 1'29"s and an improved lap. He also landed a nice platform jump lap on Ghost Valley 3 where he still has big potential. Fabrice gains two ranks this week.

#223 Jeff Hensel, the 3rd fastest karter in Arizona returned to SMK after quite some time and has delivered a strong improvement with 21 PRs, most notably scraping under the sub 1'01" barrier for Mario Circuit 1 and reaching his first State records on Bowser Castle 2. Jeff has potential for the Top 200 very soon if he keeps up this pace.
