Superkarts! Usa Affirms Commitment To IAME 175 SSE Format And Announces Tremendous Incentives For 2021 ProTour Season
Monday, 01 March 2021 16:52

After a hectic 2020, SKUSA is getting ready to start another ProTour season this month at NOLA Motorsports Park. One topic of major speculation has been the future of the IAME 175 SSE shifter program and where shifter kart racing as a whole is headed within the SKUSA organization.

“It’s no secret the 175 had a difficult launch and underwent challenges in becoming the stable and driver-friendly engine it is today,” remarked SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “We don’t want to dwell on the past, we’re always trying to look forward. Rather than blame anyone, we’re doubling down on our commitment to see it work. We owe that to the racers who have purchased these engines and we truly believe that we have perfected this format now. The engine of 2021 is not the same one that had unforeseen issues at launch. We are prepared to show it, and our commitment to the program, in a very significant way.”

SKUSA Pushes Back New X30 Pipe And System Upgrades Until SpringNationals Event In Utah, Due To Covid-19 Delays
Tuesday, 02 February 2021 22:08
Due to extremely congested shipping ports and COVID-19 logistics, IAME USA have experienced unforeseen delays in shipments. This in turn means the inability to procure new engines and exhaust systems in a timely fashion, as outlined in the previous update memorandum. SuperKarts! USA have confirmed they will delay the introduction of new systems in their events until the SKUSA ProTour SpringNationals in Utah.

While incoming shipments are expected in the next couple of weeks, the best laid plans cannot overcome the chaos caused by this ongoing pandemic. In order for teams and customers to have sufficient time for preparation, SKUSA have opted to delay the introduction in their sanctioned competition. The new roller-type main bearings will still be approved for use at the first SKUSA event in New Orleans. Teams and drivers who are preparing their current equipment early will not have to re-do them. We thank our racers for their ongoing patience and understanding during these extremely difficult times.
 
Official Statement From IAME USA Regarding 2021 Updates To New X30 Pipe And X30 Configuration
Monday, 18 January 2021 12:54
As many may remember, with the reconfiguration of the IAME distribution in North America in 2014, we put forth a commitment to freeze the engine configuration for seven years. This coming 2021 racing season will be our seventh year (*after a one-year grace period for COVID-19.) We have listened to our engine builders and customers and will be offering the following changes moving forward in 2021. This introduction also comes in connection with the struggle to get these older models during COVID-19.

Before implementing these changes moving forward we want to remind everyone of the impetus for any such changes. As we pledged in 2014, reliability and customer satisfaction remain our guiding principles here at IAME USA. Any new ideas are in the interest of those two facets, and as always — the motivation for introducing any such change is always parity and value for the racer.

The unique and grueling grind of the 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour ended on Sunday with the sixth and final round of competition contested at the New Castle Motorsports Park. The karting circus that began on August 6 in New Castle, Indiana came to a close with teams and competitors leaving during the evening hours. The day began with a humid overcast but northernly winds helped to push them away to sunny skies and much more comfortable temperatures then any of the previous rounds. On track, drivers left it all out on the track in hopes of moving themselves onto the championship podium, or to grab their best result of the 10-day marathon. Read full story on eKartingNews.com

The 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Summer Festival reached the penultimate round of the unique triple header, double-weekend format at the New Castle Motorsports Park. Round Five was contested around the ‘Reverse National’ course of the New Castle, Indiana facility on ‘Situation Saturday’ as the championship chases were either more defined, and for some, already locked up before heading into the series finale. Wet weather stayed away all day, providing perfect racing conditions for the 12 categories and eight race groups.

Coming off four wins in the opening weekend, Bryson Morris (RPG / Kosmic) was shut out of the podium in both X30 Senior and KA100 Senior on Friday for Round Four. Top-five finishes helped to keep the championship chases in good position heading into Saturday. Morris started the day with a stellar drive in the KA100 class. A pushback bumper penalty put him seventh on the grid for the main event. He fought his way up to third and was trailing the lead duo of Arias Deukmedjian (KSNA / WPK) and Luca Mars (SCR / Redspeed) by 1.5 seconds. Morris was able to reel them in with two laps remaining. Mars and Morris worked past Deukmedjian heading to the white flag and then Morris took the lead on the final circuit at the I-70 corner. Fighting for second behind him allowed Morris to drive away to the checkered flag for his third victory in five rounds, clinching the championship with one round remaining. Deukmedjian crossed the line in second but was penalized three seconds for jumping the start. That put Mars up to second, and Brandon Lemke (Franklin / Merlin) to third on the podium. Terrin Odom (MDR / Kosmic) was promoted to fourth and Hayden Jones (Nitro / Tony Kart) finishing fifth as Deukmedjian fell to sixth. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
