Superkarts! USA Introduces New Pipe for Stock Moto Categories
Tuesday, 23 April 2013 11:03
Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce the official launch of a new exhaust pipe for the organization’s Stock Moto categories, one that will feature a much more affordable price point and a six-month warranty, an industry first. As of May 24, the new ‘SK-1’ pipe will join the current RLV R4 as a legal spec exhaust that will be allowed for competition in Superkarts! USA sanctioned events. This new product – manufactured by Pro Circuit Racing International – will come with an unprecedented six-month warranty for cracks, effective from the date of purchase – and it will become the sole spec pipe in SKUSA Stock Moto competition in 2014.

“For the last few years, following the closure of RCE Exhaust, a manufacturer that supplied us with one of our initial spec pipes, our Stock Moto program has featured just a single pipe provider,” stated Superkarts! USA CEO Tom Kutscher. “We believe that the single product approach remains the ideal situation, but our racers have been dealing with numerous reliability, quality and availability issues recently, so we felt that it was time to step in and ensure stability in this segment of the Stock Moto equation. By working closely with a new manufacturer, we are presenting a product that we can completely manage and support. We wanted to develop a product that is priced for the karter, and then stand behind it with a warranty, something that is virtually unheard of in the sport. The quality of product that Pro Circuit manufactures is second to none, and they are a professional operation that is committed to motorsports and exhaust production. We’re thrilled to be working with them.”

Mourning the Loss of a Great Lady and Friend
Wednesday, 03 April 2013 20:43
We are saddened once again to hear of the passing of another very special karting parent and SKUSA team member. Susan Lowe, you fought an amazing fight against cancer and will be remembered for your courage, strength, determination, and enduring love -- for everyone around you.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Susan's family and all of those who share in the loss of this very special lady.

Services for Susan will be held this Sunday, April 7, at 4pm (with a potluck to follow). It will be at the hall in Monte Vista Grove Homes, 2889 San Pasqual Street, Pasadena, CA 91107. (It’s on the north side of the street, just east of San Gabriel Blvd. in Marwick Place, which is off of the C Street entrance. There is limited parking in the lot, on C street and on First Street.)

Please share this with all who would like to celebrate Susan's life!

2013 Schedule Set for Midwest ProKart Challenge
Tuesday, 12 March 2013 14:07
The Superkarts! USA brand is continuing to evolve and grow throughout the United States, and in 2013, there will be an emphasis on revitalizing the original region of the organization. The schedule for the 2013 Midwest ProKart Challenge has been confirmed, as the series will again take place over three weekends. One objective this season will be bringing back the enjoyment and excitement that is shifterkart racing, while providing that same SKUSA-style atmosphere and camaraderie that racers enjoy at other regional programs and on the SKUSA Pro Tour.

“2013 marks the 20th year that racers will bang gears under the Superkarts! USA banner here in the Midwest. Back then, it was a unique group of individuals who had two things in common – a kart with a transmission, and a desire to find others to race it against,” remembers SKUSA National Director Stan Bryniarski, a pre-tech and corner official at that time. “The Midwest is where SKUSA got its beginnings, and I was lucky enough to watch it grow as it did. Now I’m privileged to continue that tradition. It may not happen overnight, but I have no doubt we can make this region grow to what it used to be. I want to send a special thank you to all the racers for your patience and support.”

New Can-Am Series Forms Partnership with Superkarts! USA
Friday, 22 February 2013 13:06
In late January, industry member and veteran racer Mike Rolison announced a new Rotax Max Challenge series that would cater to Canadian and United States racers along the northern west coast area. As the building blocks of the series began to form, Rolison was presented with the opportunity to expand the program to more and more racers. With that, the Can-Am series is now welcoming Superkarts! USA into the mix. Now labeled the ‘Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge’, the program is set to host eight races over four weekends for the 2013 season, providing both Rotax and SKUSA categories.

“I’m happy that we were able to put together this deal so early in our formation of the series,” commented Rolison, the series administrator. “The purpose of the creation of the Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge was to fill a void for Rotax racers in the area during the summer months, while providing the same intense racing and professionalism that they are used to seeing at national level events. Now we have the opportunity to do the same for Superkarts! USA racers here in the area.”

The Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge partnership with Superkarts! USA brings the organization back to the Pacific Northwest, where a number of its early national races were held. All Superkarts! USA classes will be offered, with focus on increasing the shifterkart status within the area.
