Superkarts! USA Expands S4 Super Master Class to Pro Tour for 2016

Over the last five years, Superkarts! USA has evolved steadily as the organization continues to spread its wings, expanding to the younger age brackets to bring more racers into the SKUSA program. In 2010, they added a class for 8-12 years olds, which has morphed into the insanely popular TaG Cadet Mini Swift class, and they announced last fall that the category would be split into Micro Swift and Mini Swift in 2016 to give the younger racers in the age group their own class in which to develop. At the other end of the spectrum, SKUSA continues to be the sport’s leader in Master-level racing, and the strength and growing competitiveness in the S4 Pro Stock Moto class has been staggering. The S4 Master Stock Moto class is open to drivers 30-years-of-age and older, which results in a huge gap between the youngest and oldest pilots in the category, as there are incredibly quick drivers in the 40s, 50s and 60s. New drivers hit the 30-years of age mark each year and the level of competition continues to increase with the arrival of new racers. Last year, SKUSA acknowledged this evolution by offering the new S4 Super Master class for 45+ year-old pilots on the ProKart Challenge regional level and the initial support was very positive. For 2016, SKUSA will take this program to the next level, making it an official Pro Tour class by running a sub-category at the SpringNationals and SummerNationals. At the 20th annual SuperNationals in November, S4 Super Master Stock Moto will have their own dedicated race group and full five-driver podium.

Last November’s Fikse Wheels Pro Tour SuperNationals not only highlighted the accomplishments of nine deserving winners on SuperSunday, but it also crowned Superkarts! USA’s eight national champions following five races held over three weekend events. SKUSA is proud to acknowledge and honor this year’s Fikse Wheels Pro Tour champions, who will be supported by the organization in their Pro Tour efforts in 2016 as part of the lucrative ‘Circle of Champions.’ These drivers will also be identified by their use of the prestigious yellow-on-black #1 plate. Competitors graduating up SKUSA’s internal ladder system will still have the honor of running the #1, but will use the yellow-on-white design that signals their rise up the ranks.

The seventh edition of the SpringNationals will take racers back to the Phoenix Kart Racing Association facility as the month turns over from April to May. Announced at the 2015 race, the SummerNationals will also return to the popular New Castle Motorsports Park facility in late July. The 2016 program concludes in Las Vegas once again, as SuperNationals XX returns to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 20th anniversary of this great event.
