PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany stuck to Donut Plains 1 once again, shaving some more hundredths on both course and lap times there, edging out his lead a little further from Langerak. The difference is still close however.

#34 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion worked on the twisty Donut Plains 3 track using NBT this week with a successful course and lap cut; gaining some average finish and maintains her current rank.

#58 Russell Horwood of the UK also worked on one track this week, Mario Circuit 4 was the choice this time and he improved his course and lap there, extending his lead from Spanish Champion, Limona.

#280 Michael Springer of the UK worked on a number of tracks where he could compete with rivals Will and Ash and landed some great times. The majority of Mushroom and Flower Cup had an improvement, and a Rainbow Road lap. He is now ranked at 57th in the UK and 15th fastest in London. With further cuts on Star and Special Cup he will climb towards the Top 250 Worldwide.

#324 Jonathan Hart also had a very good PR week with more improvements across the tracks, notably on Choco Island 1 and the Koopa Beaches. He is closing the gap on Ashraf Khan and with this pace can reach the Top 300 soon. He is 69th on UK ranks so far.

#384 Alex Burton set a few new times on Mushroom Cup including a consistent run on Ghost Valley 1 and Mario Circuit 1. His favourite lap Ghost Valley 3 also cut a cut down with Koopa and some platform jumping. With records on the other tracks he will quickly improve his overall rank.


NTSC Activity:

#5 Sami Cetin, the UK Champion of Super Mario Kart set another World Record barrier breaker following his PAL result on Christmas Day last year. Today he became the first player to go sub 56 seconds on Mario Circuit 1 NTSC with a new World Record there.

#17 Tyler Worley of USA continues to hit some SMK Time Trial and sticking to some of the boards where he can gain some average finish. This could enable him to challenge Bernier for the US title after passing a few players. This week he hit some improvements on Mario Circuit 4 and a course time for Bowser Castle 1.

#28 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion continued the pace from last week with four PRs across Donut Plains 1 and Bowser Castle 1. He has gained a few ranks, passing Minnesota's State Champion and Goldeneye Legend, Bryan Bosshardt, reaching 5th fastest in USA.

#102 Samuel Gomez returns to SMK this week with some NTSC PRs for MC2 with long boosting, and Bowser Castle 1 plus Donut Plains 2. He maintains his current rank.

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany is in fierce competition with his Dutch rival this week. A pair of sharper Donut Plains 1 PRs are holding him at seventh for now.

#8 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands is gaining on Babjar a bit more; his latest times are a lap record on Bowser Castle 2 and a sub 1'02" Ghost Valley 1 time.

#44 Stacy Needham of the UK improved his PAL Mario Circuit 4 lap and maintains his current rank.

#89 Krystian Wieczorek, the Champion of Poland improved his Bowser Castle 1 and Rainbow Road Non-NBT times this week for PAL.

NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley, the 2nd fastest Time Trial player in USA, and State Champion of North Carolina returned to SMK this week with a lap PR on Mario Circuit 3 and a pair of new records on Mario Circuit 4. Big potential there so we look forward to hearing more news from Tyler.

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany improved his Donut Plains 1 course PR this week with a sharp 1'11" time, and maintains his current rank.

#8 Aron Langerak also improved Donut Plains 1 this week on both course and lap, also with a cut to his Choco Island 1 course and Ghost Valley 1 lap. He is fast moving up to Babjar's rank so expect a battle for the 7th position on PAL to take place.

#34 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion had an excellent week on the third and fourth Mario Circuit tracks after giving both a solid NBT run. After several seconds cut off she also reached sub 18 and sub 19 seconds on the laps respectively. She reached two UK #2 times after some nice cuts to Vanilla Lake 1 course and lap. Leyla has cut a large amount of average finish score and passes both Nicholas Harvey and Richard Karlsson.

#44 Stacy Needham of the UK drove a strong Mario Circuit 4 NBT lap this week; but his highlight was on Bowser Castle 3 where he pushed out some impressive hits there, including a UK #2 time on the lap record. He has passed Australia's James Tagliabue on the PAL ladder.

#58 Russell Horwood of the UK improved his Mario Circuit 1 lap, gaining a few points.

#89 Krystian Wieczorek, the Champion of Poland, returned to PAL regular driving and has sent a number of new records. Ghost Valley 3 he drove a successful 5/5 platform jump with good consistency and a Rainbow Road 5-lap improvement. The other highlight was some longboosting on Mario Circuit 2 course, along with a couple other PRs. Krystian gained a few ranks to land within the Top 90.



NTSC Activity:

NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach edged out Karel's former World Records on Rainbow Road, showing his potential with two new hits there. He has also been working on Mario Circuit 3 course time, so far landing in ties with Oliver Gonzalez there on both course and lap times. A PR on Mario Circuit 4 was also reached, but a rival below has a faster time by 0.07 seconds.

#6 Christian Wild, the NTSC Time Trial Champion of Germany has been experimenting with the extra boosting strategies on Mario Circuit 4 and is adapting well after landing a new World Record lap there!

#31 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion hit some good records this week, including a Non-NBT cut on Vanilla Lake 2 course. He also drove some very nice NBT times, including Mario Circuit 4, and sub barriers on Donut Plains 3 and Rainbow Road laps. He has passed Nicholas Harvey and Dan Hoernemann to reach 6th in USA. With his potential we could see a future challenger for the US Time Trial title.

#83 Anna Moon of the UK made a nice return to NTSC Time Trials this week and delivered a pair of Mario Circuit 1 PRs, her course time is running towards the mid 59s there now.

#174 Krystian Wieczorek also hit a couple of PRs on NTSC this week on Ghost Valley 3 where he had big potential. A 5/5 platform jump time was also achieved here and he gained five ranks.

He mainly focused on the Mario Circuit and Ghost Valley tracks with some great times for Ghost Valley 1 and 2 and a sub 1'40" on Mario Circuit 3 which is his strongest board so far. Once he hits his weaker tracks he will fly well beyond the top 300 and rival Michael and Will soon. Ash is now 66th in the UK.
