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.

PAL Activity:

#309 Ashraf Khan of the UK has made a stronger comeback this week with great PRs on Mario Circuit 2, 3 and 4, Bowser Castle 1 and a few of the Ghost Valley tracks where he is working on times to rival his friends Will and Michael. The Top 300 is close now, with some big cuts off his weaker ranked times he will shoot beyond that barrier.



NTSC Activity:

#15 Tyler Worley, the NTSC Time Trial Champion of USA set a small PR on Mario Circuit 2 lap which has helped him to close the gap a little more to Ha Nyan, with Matthias Mann also not that far ahead.

#150 Fabrice Baro of Canada did a great improvement over the last week; his new PRs included course and lap times for Bowser Castle 1, where he is really picking up well on the bumper jumps with sub 1'30" potential opening up. Donut Plains 2, a similar length track heading in the same direction and Mario Circuit 4. He has landed squarely on the Top 150 NTSC.

PAL Activity:

#31 Leyla Hasso put a lot of effort in to some Ghost Valley tracks. To start with, Ghost Valley 2 course saw a sub 1'02"90 Non-NBT, and an NBT platform lap with a solid result after a few goes. Ghost Valley 3 is also getting very close to the sub 1'16" barrier with a nice cut and her first sub 15 second lap Non-NBT there. Leyla is fast approaching Swedish Champion, Kalle Videkull, and the Top 30 PAL.

#162 Fabrice Baro managed to get his PAL machine on the go again with a pair of Rainbow Road PRs which were very consistent and a Ghost Valley 3 platform jump PR. He cut over 5 average finish points, gaining three more ranks on PAL.

#321 Ashraf Khan of the UK slightly improved his Mario Circuit 4 course time, and maintains his current rank.



NTSC Activity:

#5 Christian Wild is really pushing his skills to new heights on the NTSC side as he lands a World Record on Vanilla Lake 1 course time! Very impressive skills as he also ties Arantes's already crazy lap. Coupled with a small PR on CI2 he extends his lead a little more from Sami.

#52 Stacy Needham, the UK's 3rd fastest on NTSC returns to this version to cut some good average finish with four new PRs. A great pair of times were landed on Bowser Castle 1, along with lap PRs on Mario Circuit 1 and Koopa Beach 1, enabling him to pass Karl Ludwigsen on the rankings.

#159 Fabrice Baro also continued his NTSC adventures with some nice improvements to Vanilla Lake 1, and potential for 57 seconds there soon. Plus a cut to Mario Circuit 1 course. Fabrice is now 24th in Canada.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands improved on his Vanilla Lake 1 lap PR with a Top 9 time for PAL and maintains his current rank.

#32 Leyla Hasso worked on Bowser Castle 2, where she cut her time down gradually. After some endurance she made another sub and good lap. Bowser Castle 1 was also improved well, with a solid NBT lap to go alongside.

#43 Stacy Needham of the UK made an impressive cut on Bowser Castle 1 lap, this helped him to pass Bjorn Eklund on the PAL average finish.



NTSC Activity:

#5 Christian Wild, the NTSC Champion of Germany returned for some more Time Trials with an impressive run on Vanilla Lake 1 and high positions. This has finally helped him to slip ahead of UK NTSC Champion, Sami Cetin for the Top 5!

#9 Julien Holmiere had another good collection of PRs this week including some work on Vanilla Lake 1 lap, double BC3 PRs which were also very strong and a DP2 lap. Along with other NBT hits of high level he cut more points down off his average finish and can certainly follow the path set by Christian Wild above.

#162 Fabrice Baro of Canada improved his Rainbow Road lap time this week, and maintains his current rank/

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands drove some very impressive Bowser Castle 2 and 3 course times, both very consistent under all the obstacles in place. A sub 1'30" will be possible soon on the latter, and Choco Island 1 lap also had a cut to help Aron's average finish score further.



NTSC Activity:

#9 Julien Holmiere improved a selection of PRs this week including subbing 54 seconds on Choco Island 1, and a number of course times with a 49 second hit on Vanilla Lake 1 and a few longer tracks such as BC1 and DP2. He cut some good average finish and maintains his current rank.

#162 Fabrice Baro of Canada set some big cuts on Bowser Castle 3 to shift into the sub 1'40"s on the course time and a lap in the 18s. Big potential is still here and he has gained a few ranks past some rivals in the US. The top 160 is close and another National rank when he reaches Jutras.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in Netherlands went on another fire run again, cutting more average finish to extend the lead from his recent rivals. After another small Ghost Valley lap 2 cut came twin PRs and Ghost Valley 3 where he has NBT'ed his way to sub 1'15-land on the course! Mario Circuit 3 also saw some great NBT cuts with an impressive lap.

#54 Russell Horwood of the UK drove some Non-NBT this week, with Bowser Castle 2 on the go this time where he improved his course, and Ghost Valley 2 where good cuts on both boards were done. He has passed Norway's Champion, Marius, and Andreas Rudmarker, Sweden's 4th fastest. Clark is just ahead for another UK rank.



NTSC Activity:

NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach was doing some live streaming of Vanilla Lake 1 and produced a pair of super sharp times just short of the World Records by Florent Lecoanet and Guilherme Arantes respectively.

#9 Julien Holmiere had a lot of fun with Donut Plains 1 where he nailed the NBT strategy to land times in the Top 3 and Top 2 on the course and lap!

#15 Tyler Worley of USA delivers some very special news today, after a lot of hard work in the recent weeks, and a few PRs on Vanilla Lake 2, he has passed Joe Bernier (who held the National Title on NTSC for so many years), to become the new NTSC Time Trial Champion of USA, congratulations! With this momentum, Ha Nyan and Matthias Mann are well within reach, so we look forward to see the new heights that Tyler can reach following his great PRs he has hit so far.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in Netherlands set a couple of Donut Plains 1 PRs, this helped his rivalry vs Babjar a bit more by edging him out there on the average finish.

#56 Russell Horwood of the UK worked on Bowser Castle 1 this week landing some good cuts on both course and lap. This helped him to pass Belgian Champion, Jean-Francois Schepers on the PAL World Ranking.



NTSC Activity:

#9 Julien Holmiere landed several more PRs on NTSC this week; Ghost Valley 1 being one of the highlights with a sub minute time, Choco Island 1 and Koopa Beach 1 laps also having sharp cuts. Rumour has it he is working on a sub 9 lap for the latter. Bowser Castle 3 and Donut Plains 3 are endurance testing, but Julien is cutting those down well so far.

#15 Tyler Worley of USA is now in direct competition on average finish vs Joe Bernier. Joe still edges it out slightly on the other statistics. But Tyler is no doubt going to reach the National Time Trial title with his next PR submission anyway. This week he played Vanilla Lake 2 lap. We look forward to see the next PRs that should seal the deal.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in Netherlands moves up to new heights this week, with his highest rank yet on SMK Time Trials at 6th! PRs on Ghost Valley 2 and 3 were impressive but also great consistency on Bowser Castle 1. Bowser Castle 2 and 3 laps are looking sharp, but with potential, a sub 20 second lap will happen very soon on BC2. He passes back Babjar again, and also Matthias Boucher of France.

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany delivered a great lap for Rainbow Road, and although it didn't hold his overall rank up quite with Langerak, he also lands in direct competition with Matthias Boucher at the 7th spot. More PRs will happen soon as we see these two legends battle it out.

#33 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion landed some nice PR cuts on the thwomp covered Bowser Castle 3, including a nearly 2 second improvement on her course time using NBT. She maintains her current overall rank.

#250 Craig Sargent of the UK returned to SMK Time Trials this week to complete an outstanding goal, to go sub 1'02" on Mario Circuit 1 Non-NBT. This impressive hit was achieved and also a start on Donut Plains 2. More PRs on the other tracks will greatly improve his overall rank.



NTSC Activity:

#9 Julien Holmiere hit 12 new NTSC PRs this week, continuing his strong return from the start of the year. All great NBT hits round the boards, with good focus on tracks such as KB1 and KB2. With these PRs he has reached the Top 10 on NTSC after passing Alencar Faria of Brazil.

#16 Tyler Worley of USA made a nice lap cut to Bowser Castle 3 and double PRs on Rainbow Road. He is closing in on the 1'25"00 barrier there. His average finish score is now very close to passing Joe Bernier for the USA Time Trial title.

#165 Fabrice Baro of Canada worked on the Bowser Castle tracks 1 and 2. Consistency was a bit tougher on the longer course but with some good bumper jumping more seconds can be shaved off his course times. Bowser Castle 1 lap is showing potential, and he passes Joseph Lillo on the NTSC World Rankings.
