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.

Karel van Duijvenboden set a new PAL World Record tie on Donut Plains 1 Lap with 0'13"67



Movement

PAL Activity:

#3 Karel van Duijvenboden, the Time Trial Champion of Netherlands made a nice little WR tie on an end of year return to Donut Plains 1 lap on PAL.

#33 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion set her first PRs of 2015 with a pair of records on Donut Plains 2, going sub 1'28" on the course time. She passes Clement Papon on the PAL World Ranking.

#47 Anthony Pichard of also begins 2015 well with a good selection of times on the Special Cup tracks; Ghost Valley 3 was improved on both course and lap along with a good Rainbow Road course PR and Vanilla Lake 2 lap. GV1 lap was also improved and a nice cut to both Koopa Beach 1 times with NBT. Anthony passes Archibald Lefevre for 19th in France.

#319 Martin Flynn of Kent in the UK set PRs on Bowser Castle 1 and Ghost Valley 3 this week with D.K.Jr cutting some seconds down from each. There is potential on both tracks for Martin; so far this has helped him gain 6 ranks and reach 66th in the UK.



NTSC Activity:

#12 Julien Holmiere, "there has been an awakening... have you felt it"? We certainly have, as SNESOT greatest warrior of 2014, PAL Battle Mode World Champion, CDM Legend and long time member of Time Trials made a grand return to NTSC with several NBT PRs this week. He is already shooting up towards the Top 10s, so we look forward to see his progress there.

#16 Tyler Worley of USA is having an exciting time shooting for his goal, which is now so close. This week's PRs included breaking the sub 17 lap on BC1, and setting some good lap cuts for CI1 and GV3. A double PR cut on Ghost Valley 2 worked wonders where he subbed a minute on the course time. Joe Bernier and the Time Trial title of USA is just ahead. However he has potential to climb further ranks with this pace and follow Holmiere towards the Top 10.

#102 Samuel Gomez made a small cut to his Donut Plains 2 time on NTSC, may look for the sub 1'30" soon there.

End the year on a high note

Sami @ Sunday, December 28th 06:23PM   [link]

End of 2014 and moving into 2015

Another exciting year is over; and Super Mario Kart Time Trials are still going strong. Superb achievements and rivalries have been realised during 2014. A big thank you for everyone who has taken part, whether it has been for a part of the year or more.

PAL and NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach set many unstoppable World Records this year, landing the Myth+ on NTSC overall plus breaking insanely good barriers such as Bowser Castle 2's sub 1'38", a sub 58 seconds on Ghost Valley 2 earlier this year, and most of all, a 9.99 second lap on Koopa Beach 2! This sub 10 barrier was superb, plus a first Top 10 time for Leyla Hasso on VL2 PAL lap shortly after. Towards the end of the year, Mario Circuit 1 also saw it's first 55 second time by Sami Cetin following on from the previous year's 57 mark. Some very strong challengers are approaching the top spots and are likely to challenge World Records before long; rivalries between Langerak and Babjar in particular. Christian Wild is also one to watch in the new year, and 2015 may even see a new USA Time Trial Champion... to be continued smile

I think it is clear that we may not be flying on any hover boards in 2015... not even September / October time *sighs*... but Super Mario Kart will take us flying to new heights regardless. So do get involved in some record setting, it is great to see everyone enjoy the classic Super Mario Kart game, and how the franchise has continued to grow, all the way up to the new Mario Kart 8 that launched this year.

Lastly, as mentioned last week... the Super Mario Kart World Championships, please don't miss it guys! The venue and dates are set in August, and you can register now if you wish. We are really looking forward to see some new faces there for the 2015 edition.

Have a great new year everyone!


Best Regards,

Sami Cetin

Sami Cetin set a new NTSC World Record on Mario Circuit 1 Lap time with 0'10"83



Movement

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany improved his lap on Ghost Valley 2 slightly with a sub 12 second lap. He increases the gap from Langerak slightly and closes in on Boucher.

#48 Anthony Pichard of France made a return to Time Trial during the Christmas holidays and mainly worked on his Non-NBT times for Ghost Valley 3 and Rainbow Road with good results there. He also improved a Koopa Beach 1 lap time.

#57 Russell Horwood of the UK also returned this week delivering 4 PRs. Some hits on the Bowser Castle tracks and a pair of new times on Vanilla Lake 2 helped him to pass Plug and Play Champion, Alexandre Burel.

#198 Adrien Garreau has worked on his full timeset again for some time and has greatly improved on all tracks Non-NBT. His result has been a huge climb into the Top 200, just a rank short of the Champion of Luxembourg. Adrien is now ranked 57th in France.

#283 Michael Springer had an unsent PR from a while back on Ghost Valley 3 course. He maintains his current rank.

#320 Ashraf Khan improved his times for Mario Circuit 2 and 4 course times, and his strongest favourite track, Mario Circuit 3. Ashraf gains a couple of positions on the PAL World Ranking.



NTSC Activity:

#5 Sami Cetin, the UK Champion of Super Mario Kart set a new World Record lap on Mario Circuit 1 NTSC by a few hundredths.

#15 Tyler Worley of USA was on fire this week; with some solid cuts on Ghost Valley 3 and Rainbow Road both course and lap times helping to gain a lot of points. He also worked on some other tracks where there was room for improvement including Donut Plains 3 and Bowser Castle 2 course. The sub 17 second lap is also approaching. Tyler has passed Tohgo Ariake and is now less than a full average finish point from a great goal... so we believe that will be on his list of things to do for 2015.

#321 Clayton Eli Rogers set 14 new PRs since the last week; notable improvements were on the Vanilla Lakes and Bowser Castle 1. Clayton is now ranked at 136th in USA and we look forward to see more records soon.

Trick and Glitch Charts refurbished

Alex Penev has kindly implemented charts in the similar formatting as the main ones for the trick and glitch times. This helps primarily for the ease of updating if we have more activity there in the future and also to keep consistency with the look. The charts remain the same in that they have top times and World Records of their own for PAL and NTSC, but no ranking system or relation with the main rankings. So they are still stand alone in that manner but can be enjoyed as shortcut challenges; so please feel free to send any records in if you wish to be ranked here.

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany, was in the midst of an impressive battle this week... his main rival below was attacking hard but with some great Ghost Valley 2 platform jumping times he cut a lot of average finish off to maintain his rank for another week.

#8 Aron Langerak also had an impressive cut, with some longboosting times on Mario Circuit 2 where he went for average finish and a pair of strong Bowser Castle 1 times. What is also exciting here as these two warriors are finally closing the gap to the 6th place position. To be continued...

#325 Martin Flynn of Kent in the UK set a pair of new times on Donut Plains 1 and cut some great average finish off. This helped him gain 3 more ranks including a win on rival, Jonathan Hart.


NTSC Activity:

#16 Tyler Worley of USA improved well on Mario Circuit 1 with a further cut to his course time and a nice lap record. Bowser Castle 2 was hit next where he landed a sub 1'40" course time and also a lap PR for Donut Plains 3, which also has a lot of potential. Tyler has passed Anderson and is now just above 2 average finish points from the USA Time Trial title.

#166 Fabrice Baro of Canada had indeed a good Mario Circuit day with some sharp times for Mario Circuit 2, and good cuts on Mario Circuit 3 and 4 where there is potential. Mario Circuit 1 also had a big points improvement as he reaches the 1'00" level there. Fabrice now reaches the benchmark of Top 25 in Canada.

#336 Clayton Eli Rogers of USA makes a full round improvement on almost all of his times; sharpening up his driving skills with the heavyweight characters. This has helped him to gain a lot of time, and thus a 28 rank climb. He has also landed at 4th in Tennessee. We expect he will reach for the Top 300 soon.

PAL Activity:

#8 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands set two very impressive records on Choco Island 2. He is closing in on the sub 1'05" barrier. Aron is now extremely close to passing Manuel for the 7th place spot again. Will he PR to defend here?

#327 Jonathan Hart returns with some solid Ghost Valley 3 PRs this week; gaining some points. He also has a challenger approaching; and it is Essex vs Kent this week...

#328 Martin Flynn, the 2nd fastest karter in Kent, from the UK starts hitting some new records on Ghost Valley 2 and Bowser Castle 2. He is not far from Jonathan's rank so we look forward to see this rivalry as both competitors continue their journey towards the Top 300.



NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley of USA hit some more sharper times on Bowser Castle 1. His lap is ready to go sub 17 soon and this seems like a good goal. The course time also has 1'25" potential. Not to forget the other tracks though as Tyler can definitely win a lot of average finish there.

#175 Fabrice Baro of Canada gains six more ranks on the NTSC World ladder this week with PRs on VL1 and RR where he nearly subbed the 1'00" and 1'30" barriers respectively. These will be reached very soon and he also made some nice cuts to Donut Plains 3. Fabrice is now 28th in Canada.

#364 David Baycroft slightly improves his Mario Circuit 1 course time.

#253 Daniel Sampson of Australia made a return to SMK TIme Trials this week with a PR for Ghost Valley 1 course and a lap cut on Mario Circuit 2. We definitely look forward to see more soon. He is closing the gap to the UK's Craig Sargent on the PAL rankings.



NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley of USA improved his Mario Circuit 1 time in the low 57 second level and also set a slightly sharper Bowser Castle 1 lap, continuing from last week's PRs there.

#102 Samuel Gomez improved his long boost course time for Mario Circuit 2 this week, and maintains his current rank.

#181 Fabrice Baro of Canada is on fire with his records already; he has set 10 new times, working on his previously weaker times on the Choco Island tracks, some of the water / ice and also Donut Plains 1. This has driven him well beyond the Top 200 of NTSC and 29th in Canada.
