 Important News

Revision to X30 Header/Flex Rule Posted 13 December 2018
Friday, 21 December 2018 11:18

We recently posted a change to the allowed Header/Flex length rule. After receiving additional input from tuners, competitors and engine builders we have decided to standardize the length for all X30 classes to 17” MINIMUM. Note that this change will be in effect at the Winter Series Rounds1 and 2.

This measurement is taken from the outside of the header flange (not the engine side) around the right side of the header, Flex and exhaust to the weld at the first divergent cone. Measurement is taken with exhaust as installed on kart.

A reminder that SKUSA rules do not allow solid connectors, flex must be used as supplied with engine.
 
 
SKUSA Confirms Revised Age Minimum Trial For Upcoming 2019 SKUSA Winter Series
Monday, 17 December 2018 18:38
Superkarts! USA today announced a new initiative meant at exploring the possibility of implementing permanent changes to its age requirements for the upcoming SKUSA ProTour. The move comes as an effort to accommodate the influx of international drivers, which have become a staple at national events throughout the country. Beginning with the SKUSA Winter Series in Florida, the racing age minimums for junior and senior single speed IAME classes will be as follows:

X30 Junior and KA100 Junior     11 Years of Age
X30 Senior and KA100 Senior    14 Years of Age


“This move is one we want to be very mindful about,” explained SKUSA competition director Joe Janowski. “Our North Star at SKUSA has always been safety. It is our guiding principle. We are using the SKUSA Winter Series as a testbed to consider the change for the upcoming 2019 SKUSA ProTour.”

SKUSA Confirms New Partnerships And Lower Entry Fees For Winter Series LO206 Racers
Thursday, 13 December 2018 15:55
Superkarts! USA today announced a joint partnership between Rysa Racing, South Florida Karting Club, and AMR Motorplex aimed squarely at helping LO206 racers for the upcoming SKUSA Winter Series. In an effort to promote grassroots competition and newcomers to the sport, the three have combined efforts to offer a promotional pricing entry structure for the second annual championship in Florida.

“We recognize the value LO206 represents to the sport as a whole,” commented SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “Getting people in seats is paramount to the long-term vision and we have found some amazing partners to offset the entry fees to make racing at the Winter Series as inexpensive as possible.”

The $450 Senior and Master entry fee for LO206 is nearly $500 less than the comparable IAME classes, and still includes Friday practice, Saturday and Sunday races, and one set of Evinco race tires.

SKUSA today revealed its long-awaited return to the Great Lakes region with an exciting confirmation that a new ProKart Challenge series will recommence, beginning in 2019. The 4-round regional championship will begin and end at New Castle Motorsports Park, with stops at Norway and Road America comprising the 2019 race schedule.

The championship is spearheaded by current SKUSA director of competition — Joe Janowski, but really marks the return of the series to its roots, having come of age in the Midwest in the late 2000’s. “Surely, the latest generation of racers know me from the current iteration of the SKUSA ProTour,” remarked Great Lakes director Joe Janowski, “but the SKUSA roots run deep in our family. My father helped pioneer the early days of the organization and it’s a point of pride to see SKUSA thrive in the Midwest today. I couldn’t be more excited about returning the series to the area.”
