Round Three of California ProKart Challenge Set for Santa Maria
Friday, 30 June 2023 10:57

The California ProKart Challenge heads back to the Santa Maria Karting Association facility for the third round of the 2023 season

The 2023 California ProKart Challenge returns to action on the July 8-9 weekend with a trip to the Santa Maria Karting Association facility. The third round of the Superkarts! USA regional program will be held at the Santa Maria, California facility. Following two events at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park to open up the year, the California PKC program reaches the midway point with the third event to continue the 19th championship season with a perfect sunny, breezy beach climate expected for Round Three.

Two wins in the opening two rounds puts Texas driver John Burke at the top of the championship chase in the HRT Driver Development KA100 Senior class. His two Buttonwillow triumphs have him leading two-time podium finisher Ethan Lampe by 40 points, with Kane Martin in third. Keagan Kaminski has a similar record in the SpeedSense Motorsports KA100 Junior division with two wins in Buttonwillow of his own. His point lead is 124 over Ryan Giannetta with Shea Aldrich sitting third.

Shifter Push Back Bumpers in New Castle
Thursday, 22 June 2023 14:18
Following feedback from Pro Shifter competitors we have decided not to issue PBB penalties for both shifter classes at NCMP. Please keep in mind that the PBB hardware must remain in place and that we will continue to check and record deployments. Please refrain from repositioning them until after the officials have recorded their status.
 
Panel Numbers & Colors - Changes and Enforcement
Written by Lynn Haddock - National Tech Director   
Thursday, 22 June 2023 14:13
At the most recent Pro Tour event in Utah, a large majority of karts were found with kart numbers where the height of the number was non-compliant. Starting at the next Pro Tour event in New Castle, we will be strictly enforcing the following revised rules:
  • Micro and Mini Swift - 5" minimum height
  • All other classes - 5.9" minimum height
Warnings will be issued during Friday Practice, and any numbers found to be non-compliant on race day shall result in a procedural penalty. Please inspect your equipment for compliance. The revised rule is below.

301.3   Panel Numbers & Colors: Numbers shall be black on a yellow background, at least 15 cm (5.9” // minimum 5” for Micro/Mini Swift) tall and have a 2 cm (.787”) wide stroke represented with an Arial font. No shaded or outlined numbers are allowed. The competition number shall be bordered by a yellow background of 1 cm (.393”) minimum. They must be in place prior to any official session, on both front and rear panels, as well as on both sides towards the rear of the bodywork. The driver is responsible for ensuring that the required numbers are always clearly visible to timekeepers and officials.

 
EKN Trackside: 2023 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – Sunday Report

While the potential for rain was in the forecast throughout the weekend at the Utah Motorsports Campus for this year’s Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals, the wet stuff didn’t arrive until the second half of the KA100 Senior main event on Sunday, and even then, not in enough quantity to bring the race to a halt. After a short lightning break as the small storm cell passed through, the Mini Swift drivers took to a damp track, and the decision to go with slicks or wets made things intriguing. More on that later. Overall, the day’s racing was ultra-aggressive once again, and even the drivers commented on the poor racecraft in post-race interviews. Despite this aggression, or maybe because of it, the racing in the headline X30 Senior and Pro Shifter categories was edge-of-your-seat type of stuff.

In the Pro Shifter class, GFC Karting’s Jacob Gulick (GFC) backed up his breakout win on Saturday to score another triumph over the stacked field of gearbox racers, having to come back from a tough start that dropped him to third. The X30 Senior race was as wild as expected, and with six drivers in the hunt, J3 Competition’s Oliver Hodgson (CompKart) emerged from the inferno to score his first major national SKUSA victory in the United States. The day also saw new winners, as eight categories battled for wins in Round Four of the SKUSA Pro Tour.
