CDM 2014 over and result

The Super Mario Kart World Championship 2014 was indeed a blast!! I will keep this short as the majority of you will have watched the streams online and will definitely be hearing of stories on the forum and photos on facebook very soon.

A big thanks to the FFSMK and all of the organisation team, Guillaume, FF, Florent and Patrick for their hard work and everyone for taking part. Congrats to Florent Lecoanet for winning the overall again, with Sami Cetin as runner up and then Julien Holmiere in 3rd, and all of the participants for taking part. We would definitely like to see 50+ players next year. Highly recommended to get to the SMK World Championships if you haven't been already! Roll on 2015 edition...

PAL Activity:

#173 Matthias Rustemeyer of Germany, and the reigning Mario Kart 64 Non-SC Time Trial World Champion hopped over to SMK Time Trials for a very nice PR on Rainbow Road lap. He has some great potential so we look forward to more records soon, and a possible entry to CDM 2015!


NTSC Activity:

#6 Christian Wild hit a superb NTSC World Record lap tie on Bowser Castle 2 last week. We wonder if he will continue to lower it by 0.01 or continue with the 5-lap...

#101 Samuel Gomez improved his NTSC Bowser Castle 1 time to right near the 1'30" barrier. Now that CDM is over he may go for the sub here.

#8 Manuel Babjar, Germany's Time Trial Champion on PAL was on Aron's tail however with a pair of strong NBT times for Bowser Castle 1. With Aron away this week at CDM will Manuel try to steal the 7th spot again?

#72 Jeremie Clement of France has continued his fire trail from last week with 17 new PRs to add in, and sharpening his records as he heads towards the Top 70, passing rival Pichard on the way. He looks set to unleash his skills, stay tuned for some great performances from Jey at CDM.

#100 Samuel Gomez cut a few of his times down for Bowser Castle 2 and Donut Plains 3. He is nearing the 1'25"00 barrier for DP3 and maintains his current rank.

#103 Anna Moon set a couple of preparatory PRs for CDM also, this time Bowser Castle 1 lap Non-NBT and an NBT time for Mario Circuit 2 course.

#58 Russell Horwood of the UK hits a couple of Donut Plains 1 NBT PRs on PAL and this cuts a few points for him to gain a rank ahead of Belgium's 2nd fastest Time Trial player, Mathieu Jaspard.

#76 Jeremie "Jey" Clement hits hard on Time Trial with a flurry of new PRs both Non-NBT and NBT. Most notable work on the Vanilla Lakes, Choco Island tracks and Koopa Beach 2. He has gained several ranks and is approaching the Top 75 on PAL. Jeremie is also now 29th in France.

#100 Daniel Pabst of Germany made a quick return to PAL Time Trials this week with a nice lap in the mid 10s on Vanilla Lake 1 and a pair of times on Bowser Castle 2. He is now in direct competition with Samuel Gomez at the Top 100. Considering the approach of the CDM, Daniel's rival here may generate some PRs soon.

PAL Activity:

#28 Joe Bernier, the Time Trial Champion of USA is not looking to make Harvey's climb easy as he cuts some good average finish off this week. Pushing Bowser Castle 3 lap to the 18 second barrier was tough but he also set an NBT PR for DP1 and some good longboosting results for Mario Circuit 2, gaining quite a few ranks, a movement well into the Top 30, and passing Sweden's Time Trial Champion, Kalle Videkull.

#35 Nicholas Harvey however made a solid climb and gained some more ranks to reach the mid thirties there on PAL. His Non-NBT cuts on Special cup were looking good for VL2 and Rainbow Road plus an NBT GV3 lap. GV2 and CI2 are also getting sharper, but best of all was his NBT sub 1'30" for Bowser Castle 1. This helped him to pass Swiss Time Trial Champion, Raphael Braun.

#258 Craig Sargent Surrey's fastest karter from the UK has been hard at work on one of his favourite tracks Mario Circuit 1, succeeding in a superb 1'02" flat PR along with a great lap Non-NBT. He is almost reaching the Top 50 in the UK overall on PAL.

#319 David Holliss gains another rank on the Time Trials this week with some good PR cuts for his Mushroom cup times plus a pair of sharper times for Choco Island 1. He also cut some time down on the tougher Donut Plains 3 track. David closes in on Daniel Gooch on the PAL ladder.


NTSC Activity:

NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach made a quick comeback to Time Trials this week with a small PR on Choco Island lap NTSC.

#45 Andrew Koltz set a pair of Non-NBT PRs for Donut Plains 1, with a sub 1'15" time on the course. He maintains his current rank.
