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

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/
