SKUSA and PKC Rule Changes for 2011
Written by John Motley - National Technical Director   
Monday, 10 January 2011 20:15
Rear Protection:
Effective January 1, 2011, all competitors in SKUSA events are required to have full width rear protection (see below).  We realize that some may not have time to install the necessary protection by the first PKC events this year. Accordingly, we will allow an additional period for competitors to conform.  By the second scheduled race in both regions, you will be required to have the rear protection installed.

ProKart Challenge Programs Announce Discounted Entry Package
Thursday, 06 January 2011 09:03
As we enter the new year, the Superkarts! USA staff is back at work and gearing up for the 2011 season, one that will certainly be the biggest in the organization’s history. SKUSA is focused on building off a solid 2010 campaign, and will once again promote official competition on both the regional and national level. Interest is huge – thanks to the massive success of the 14th annual SuperNationals in Las Vegas – and big increases in support and participation are expected in both the ProKart Challenge series and the second running of the SKUSA Pro Tour. One of the primary goals for 2011 is to make the PKC program the best value in California.

The organization is vocal in its dedication to providing the best karting experience in California through their ProKart Challenge North and South programs, and a significant decrease in the entry fee package is the primary promotion. The schedules will be very exciting this year, taking the PKC competitors to a number of tracks that have not been part of the series in the past. The PKC South and PKC North calendars will feature six races, each of which includes the popular West Coast Shootout at Santa Maria in late August. The PKC North program will venture away from Infineon Raceway for the first time to visit cornerstone NorCal tracks like Dixon, Prairie City, Reno and Atwater, as well as a venue in Monterey. The South circuit will follow suit, making its debut at Adams Raceway in Riverside, while also heading back to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Buttonwillow Raceway and both the Streets of Willow and purpose-built kart track at Willow Springs.

Official SKUSA Statement Regarding the Future of the G1 Category
Written by Tom Kutscher   
Thursday, 16 December 2010 09:51
There has been much talk on the forums and at the track regarding the unsubstantiated rumor that Superkarts! USA is attempting to ‘kill off the G1 class’. We have received many phone calls and e-mails from both members and non-members voicing their dissatisfaction regarding this rumor, and I believe that it is time to make a statement outlining our position on the matter.

I would like to state officially that we are by no means trying to ‘kill off G1’. In fact, we are big fans of the ICC program and G1 in particular, as this is where I started my karting career. G1 is MY class and I still love it. On the regional level, G1 can be added to any program as a local option, as it is in the Pro Kart Challenge South series. As for our national program, we will need a larger confirmed contingent to warrant a spot in the weekend line-up.

To be realistic, the numbers in the G1 class have been dropping at a slow and steady rate all across the country, following the direction of the KZ2 class, and we have felt this decrease in our Pro Kart Challenge program as well, to the point where we were forced to shelve the class from our PKC North series line-up when entries dropped to just two drivers. One competitor moved to TaG Master and the other shifted his focus to testing, the Pro Tour, the SuperNationals and other one-off races. Yes, there are active G1 drivers out there, but we’re just not seeing enough of them right now.

We have offered, and will continue to offer, every opportunity for the G1 class to remain in our Pro Kart Challenge and Pro Tour programs. As stated in a recent press release, we will run the G1 class in the Pro Kart Challenge South series this year as long as there are drivers. As with any smaller class, the inclusion of trophies will be dictated by the number of entries, but if G1 drivers wish to come out to play, we’ll find a place for them. We’re dedicated to shifter kart racing and will provide a venue for as many gearbox racers as we can.

That said, in regards to the 2011 SKUSA Pro Tour, we have our set line-up of Stock Moto and TaG classes. However, I will once again officially state that we will include the G1 class on the line-up if we receive commitments from at least 15 drivers before January 31. At that time, we will require that these committed participants pre-pay their entry fees for both the SpringNationals and SummerNationals. These entries will be non-refundable to reserve the position in the schedule. We have already asked via the SKUSA website and a distributed press release for e-mailed confirmation of participation from the current G1 contingent, and to this date, we have not yet received a single commitment from even one competitor. We have made the official offer to continue our support of G1, so now it is up to the racers.

There is a great deal of chatter on the EKN forums regarding this subject and we have heard the same argument via phone calls and e-mails. This criticism is unfounded, as the opportunity has been presented. If you’re a G1 driver who wants to race on the SKUSA Pro Tour in 2011, you must contact us via e-mail @ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The SKUSA office staff is standing by.

Sincerely,

Tom Kutscher
Superkarts! USA
