- March first half - Jungle fights, beach parties and the beginning of spring! -
by Chraizy at 11:55 am

Hello guys! It's Chris with some awesome news! The spring has begun, at least in germany! The weather is so nice and... wait, this is about MK64! Fuck the weather, let's see all the WRs!

New Players

Spencer Trautmann joins the ranks with a complete timeset at #580.
Tyson Hill also joined with 32 times a bit lower at #700. SC: #282.
Jose Guzman joins the SC side with 2 WS times and debuts at #356. He is also the very first player from Bolivia, welcome to the site!


World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer had a shot at the DK 3lap WR, he was able to get it from William with a 2'12"78 PAL time. Lacey quickly responded with a brutal 0"01 cut and landed at 2'12"77. But Matthias was eager and tried again, and improved it another time. The new WR stands at 2'12"74 (NTSC: 1'50"40)!!

Shortcut

Beck Abney improved his KD 3lap, and was able to hit the very first 3/3 SC with a train pass aswell!! He improved Vinces old WR by over half a second and stands now at 2'03"11 (NTSC: 1'42"39)!!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion Matthias Rustemeyer had a fight with Lacey in the jungle, but was able to successfully win the throne of the jungle. (for more information of how two people fight in the jungle, check the WR section). Matthias also tried to beat Jamies incredible flap on DKJP, but had to stop at a 42"45, which is still ranked 2nd, but closer to Jamie.
#5 (5) William Lacey was not only in the jungle, but made a trip to the beach after this really disappointing fight. He was relaxing his way to a sub 1'36 time and hit a sub 31 flap while chilling in the chair in the sun. All in all he improved 0.156 points and stands at exactly 7 points now.
#6 (6) Daniel Burbank also had a slight visit at the beach, but had to hurry because he didn't want to miss the spectacle at the stadium, which was.. driven by himself. A nice 7th ranked time was reached here. Dan also somehow landed on a rainbow, but didn't stop to race his way to the finish with 2 new records. Dan cut the same amount of AF as Lacey, and is not even half a point away.
#13 (13) Beck Abney showed up in the jungle aswell. He wasn't able to compete at the same level, but hey, he reached a #3 time which is really strong. He also improved his RRd times and hit a nice 0"9 seconds cut here. Beck cut 0.3 AF points and is 2.5 points away from Greg.
#26 (27) Michael Arends caught his parasol and went to the beach aswell. After watching William and Dan racing, he was motivated to try it himself and made a fantastic 0"09 seconds cut to improve his time into the TOP20. Michael is only 0.125 points away from Steven and the next spot.
#45 (43) Marcos Vinicius Alves had an awesome first half of March and showed us 12 new records. He got 5 new GOD times in the progress and improved his ARR to Legend A! He passed 10 players with a 6.8 points cut and easily entered the TOP50!
#47 (45) Andreas Rudmarker also had a fantastic half and got 16 new records! He got 4 new GOD times, also reached Legend A and ALSO passed 10 players. Talk about magic... no jk! Andreas got a 9 points AF cut and is close to Marcos, also reached the TOP50 this time!
#64 (62) Jake Walter improved his FS flap, BC and YV 3laps. The FS flap went to GOD status and is another time that helps him to reach the next standard. Jake pased 2 players with a 2.4 AF points cut.
#71 (69) David Moll enjoyed a train trip to the Desert. No wait, David hates traveling with the train, but not because of the annoying persons he drove with, not because of the expensive costs, but because of the fact that he missed the flap GOD time by 0"01 seconds! His FS flap is also really close to the GOD time. 2 times to shoot for in the next time, right? David passed 2 players with a 2 AF points cut. He is really close to the next promotion. Close behind is #73 (72) Mark Jones who is getting more and more nice PAL times. Mark got 3 new GOD times on LR flap and MMF dual. He cut 3.8 points with those 3 PRs alone and passed 6 players to reach the TOP75 easily! Mark is also not too far away from the Legend B ranks, let's see if he will make it till next time.
#95 (96) Brett Edwards made a little comeback and improved his FS flap slightly by 3 ranks. He didn't pass anyone though, so he remains at the same spot.
#116 (115) Patrick Blank had a nice half and sent us 8 new records. He got 5 new Legend times and got one really nice improvement on BC flap, which went from 160th to 71st! He passed 10 players with a 10 AF points cut and the next few players are close together, so that's a nice motivation. He is also very close to the Legend ranks, don't wait too long with new improvements!
#142 (144) Kyle Begley improved 3 records this half and reached a new Legend time on YV flap. He passed 2 players with a 1.3 AF cut, and he is very close to pass Jacob, who's only 0.03 points in front.
#149 (155) Lewis Richards improved 10 records of which 3 are new Legend times. Lewis' timeset is a bit unbalanced, remembers me a bit of Michael Arends timeset when he was around King B level, ranks all over the place, a few GODs here and there but still Elite times, kinda funny :D! However, Lewis made a nice cut of 24 AF points to pass 24 players, which is a rather huge cut. He also got a really nice FS flap, ranked 67th and Legend B!
#167 (168) Anastasia Steingold improved LR and WS 3laps and finally joined the club of 32/32 Kings! She made a 0.3 AF cut this half and remained at the same spot, but still, 32 Kings is a nice goal to achieve, congratz!
#171 (175) Josh McCambridge played a lot and gained 17 new records, including 4 new Legend times and a big 12 AF points cut! He passed 12 players and is close to a rank promotion to King C.
#192 (194) Anna Moon got 6 new records, 2 of them are new Legend times on KD and DK flaps. She passed 4 players with a 2.5 AF cut and strengthened her TOP200 position!
#200 (202) Naveen Selvam improved 11 PRs and made a strong 21 AF points cut. He passed 15 players and barely missed the TOP200! Naveen reached 3 new Legend times, and also skipped an entire standard to become the newest King D player!
#264 (267) Leif Christian Tode completely revamped his timeset and just sent us 32 new records! The thing is, he cut a monstrous 162 AF points with it!! Leif passed 158 players and cut 36% of his old AF. He passed 2 complete standards and went from Pro D to Elite C! He already has a few King times, but also a few Pros left. Great progress!
#266 (272) Cole Horan had a huge list of 27 PRs, and made a pretty nice 72 AF cut to pass 65 players! It's not as big as Leifs cut, but also a very nice achievment! Cole also reached a new standard and is now an Elite B player!
#599 (453) James Farrell-Shaw sent us 8 new records, and made a few nice cuts. He got a nice King F flap on MR, which is ranked 257th! James passed 6 players and is close to the TOP450.
#454 (463) Mark Vizza made a nice 22 AF points cut with his 21 new records and passed 17 players. He also reached Semi-Pro A in the progress!
#517 (524) Dan McMullan passed 81 players with a 67 AF points cut this half, with 14 new records he was able to leave the Expert F standards and directly jumped to the Semi-Pro F ranks!
#650 (682) Ben Stoneman improved his AF by 26 points and passed 31 players. He got 14 new records, his FS times were the best ranked around 550th.
#666 (728) Stephen De Winter improved 5 records and got a nice 17 AF points cut. He passed 21 players and got promoted to Intermediate A!
#961 (831) Ethan McCormac played a bit out of boredom and realized that MK64 can be quite a lot of fun. He shooted for a nice MR flap and was on it quite a bit, but in the end he was able to hit a Legend F flap and almost reached his first TOP100! He also reached Legend on MMF flap and King B on KD flap. Ethan passed 91 players with those 3 PRs alone, which resulted into a big 71 points cut!


SC Movement

#5 (5) Beck Abney got the KD 3lap WR by hitting a very rare 3/3 SC run (see WRs section)! He also improved his RRd 3lap, which is ranked 2nd and got him another nice AF cut. He cut 0.2 points in total and is 3.1 AF points behind Karlo now.
#58 (60) Patrick Blank sent us 2 times for his timeset for KD, which are ranked 26th and 38th. He also improved his YV flap and hit a new GOD time here! Patrick passed 9 players with those PRs, and entered the TOP60 in the progress.
#84 (95) Lewis Richards played a bit SC and was able to hit a dual PR on LR and RRy. He also improved his YV flap and hit a GOD time, his 3rd SC, and 4th total GOD time! Lewis passed 16 players and entered the TOP100 with style.
#142 (150) Naveen Selvam sent us also 2 times for KD and now got a complete timeset.
#299 (341) Dan McMullan improved his RRd flap and passed one player in the AF ranks.


That's it! Join me next time for some hot weathe... nice news!

Austin Spillman is the last joiner with a complete timeset. He debuted at #807. SC: #439.

World Records


Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer improved Dans 3lap WR on FS again and slightly improved the time. The new WR is a 2'00"45 (NTSC: 1'40"17)!!

Daniel Burbank was able to improve his own WR on FS flap. A pretty huge cut of 0"05 seconds on this already maxed lap, and it was speculated to be hard to beat... however, the new time is a 38"40 (NTSC: 31"94)!!


Non-SC Movement

Mario Kart 64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved his FS 3lap and gained 0.03 AF points with the new WR (see WR section).
#5 (5) William Lacey got 4 new records, 2 of them were new TOP10s. William is still far behind Zoran and the 4th spot, but he gained 0.4 AF points though.
#7 (6) Daniel Burbank got 7 new records, one of them was an improvement of his own FS WR (see WR section). His second best time was a #2 time on YV flap, pretty strong! He got 3 new TOP10s in total and finally passed Jamie in the AF lists for the 6th spot with his 0.6 AF point cut! He's also only 0.5 points behind William and the TOP5, will he go for it?
#26 (27) Michael Arends improved his KTB flap and scored a new TOP30 time to push him 2 places further in the AF lists.
#57 (56) Andreas Rudmarker had a fantastic end of the month, scoring 22 PRs in total and getting many many new high leveled times. The highlight was a 35th ranked TT flap. He scored 7 new GOD times and passed 22 players (!) in half a month! He also became the newest Legend B player, great work!
#66 (64) Jake Walter played some flaps and LR 3lap, and scored 5 PRs in total. He had a small cut, since a lot of his PRs got beaten by Andreas, nonetheless he made a 0.6 AF cut to maintain his position. Just as Andreas, he reached the Legend B status this month!
#127 (125) Patrick Blank got 7 new records this half and scored a new Legend time on KTB flap, which was also a new TOP100. Patrick is closing in to the Legend status and passed 4 players to reach the TOP125!
#145 (146) Kyle Begley got 6 records and got 2 new Legends. He successfully entered the TOP150 by passing 8 players with his 8 AF points cut. He also left the King C ranks and joined the King B players!
#166 (168) Anastasia Steingold played a bit this half and got 3 new records. She made a massive cut on FS flap and reached Legend and the TOP100 here. She passed 5 players in the AF ranks and also reached the King C ranks!
#178 (179) Lewis Richards tested his new HORI pad and is on his way to the TOP. However, he really accomplished a nice goal on DK flap; his very first GOD time! Well done! Lewis passed 18 players in total with a 14 AF point cut. He also moved up to the King D ranks!
#182 (187) Josh McCambridge reached many new TOP200 this half and secured his TOP200 position with them by passing 13 players. He cut 14 AF points and like Lewis, he reached the King D status!
#195 (198) Anna Moon scored 9 new records this half and a few nice cuts. With her 4 AF point cut she was able to close the gap to Rene Bauer.
#212 (217) Naveen Selvam scored a YV dual PR. The 3lap was a new Legend, while the flap became his very first GOD time! Naveen scored a 2 AF cut and passed 3 players in the progress.
MKDD Pro #368 (262) Aron Langerak decided to try his hands again on this game and scored 28 new times. He showed us that he got a lot more potential with a few TOP200 times, some are already close to TOP100 even! Aron passed 82 players with his monstrous 82 AF point cut! He jumped from Master C directly to Elite D!
MKSC World Champ #387 (390) Andy Lundeen decided, after he noticed a typo in his timesheet to play MK64 on the Wii of a friend. He improved his RRy time and easily scored a TOP400 time. He passed 9 players with this PR and reached the Pro B ranks!
#465 (480) Mark Vizza scored 23 new records this half with a few nice improvements into the TOP500. Mark passed 27 players and reached the TOP500 this half! He also became the newest Semi Pro C player.
#575 (592) Daniel Plaumann improved 15 records and passed 25 players with his 17 AF points cut. Dan reached the TOP600 with style and he already got a few TOP500s, so there's more to come!
#579 (605) Dan McMullan improved his complete timeset, with a few promising times for example a 538th ranked MR flap! He passed 48 players and reached the Expert F ranks!
MKDS Pro #690 (713) Ben Stoneman scored 27 new times this half and is also on a very good way to the higher ranks, already scoring TOP500 times. Ben passed 111 players with a 96 AF points cut, and is close to the TOP700.
#680 (749) Stephen De Winter got a dual PR on CM and RRd and scored a few nice ~600th times. He passed 10 players with a 9 AF points cut and has reached the TOP750!


SC Movement

SC and Universal Time Trial Champ Vincent Tolhuis got a new YV flap PR with his HORI pad and cut 0.1 AF points.
#5 (5) Beck Abney improved his KD 3lap with a very rare 3/3 SC run! Insane achievment, but sadly, it wasn't enough for the WR. He also got a DK 3lap which is ranked 8th, and scored a 0.3 AF cut.
#67 (64) Michael Arends improved his RRd flap with the spiral and passed 8 players to reach the 15th rank here.
#69 (69) Patrick Blank played CM dual and MR flap, all at King level. Those PRs helped him to pass 2 players with a 3.8 AF points cut.
#93 (87) Anna Moon improved her DK flap to a sub 5 NTSC (and sub 6 PAL) and passed 4 players with that PR.
#101 (111) Lewis Richards had a SC PR spree after his DK GOD success and scored 8 new records. He passed 8 players with a 5.5 AF cut and is closer to the Elite B standard.
#219 (241) Daniel Plaumann improved his YV dual times and passed 6 players with a 2.5 AF cut.

- February first half - Without practice comes no success. -
by Chraizy at 5:11 am

Hey guys! It's Chris with a brand new news update! I'm on vacation so this one comes a bit earlier than normal hehe ;). We got a lot of stuff this time with new GODs, new TOP5 members and more! Let's see...

New Players

Dan McMullan sent us a complete timeset and joined at #653. SC: #392.
Adam Nitsche sent us a complete timeset aswell and joined a bit lower at #735.

World Records


Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank hit the only non-sc WR this half, it was once again on his beloved, or hated FS, where he was once again able to strike back. The new time beats Matthias by 0"03 and stands now at 2'00"46 (NTSC: 1'40"18)!

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis was able to tie the FS WR by Marcos and Myles on FS flap, which means another FS WR in half a month! The time was a 5"88 (NTSC: 4"89)!!
But Beck Abney was also able to hit a new WR. Well it was a tie aswell, but on a different course. He tied the YV flap SC of Myles and got the 5"75 (PAL: 6"91)!


Non-SC Movement

The highest active player was once again #5 (5) William Lacey, who got 3 PRs on MMF dual and FS 3lap. MMF saw a clear sub, right into the 1'26"6 range and the flap is a new TOP10. The FS 3lap tho barely missed the sub 2'01, but still cuts 2 ranks. William cut 0.2 AF points and distanced himself more from Jamie... and #7 (7) Daniel Burbank, who will probably challenge him soon here. The mass of PRs he sets recently are a clear sign that he definitely hasn't reached his full potential. With reclaiming the FS 3lap WR, getting 5 new TOP10s and 7 PRs in total he had an amazing half this time. He cut 0.8 AF points and is only 0.25 AF points behind Jamie. However, he was able to pass the other Daniel to get his highest Non-SC AF ranking so far at #7!
#13 (13) Beck Abney set a mass of 11 PRs this time. You think this guy is getting to his limits now?! Hah, no way! He still gets big cuts, and beats some of his weaker times easily. 3 new TOP10s, a 1.3 AF cut and passing 2 players speaks for itself! Beck is facing an AF graveyard now though, 2.8 AF points wait in front of him, without any player to pass. At the time he was moving forward though, this should still be no problem for him at all!
An unexpected comeback from our old friend #16 (17) Alex Griessing this half, who sent us 4 PRs on MMF 3lap, FS 3lap and BC dual. His FS 3lap is only 0.14 seconds behind the last GOD time he needs, and therefore make him the next non-sc GOD! He is so close, and since the FS hype lately he got a lot of footage to learn from. For now, he has passed Andre and Michael for the 17th spot and is close to the 16th rank.
#26 (29) Michael Arends the most enthusiastic MK64 forum member finally set in stone what he wanted for a while! With the FS dual and BC flap, he reached the 19th overall non-sc GOD rank! The 3lap went from 39th to 15th (!), the other times saw smaller cuts, but still gave him a nice cut overall. He improved by 0.9 AF points, which helped him to come closer to our respected member Finn, who himself hit a few nice times lately aswell! Michael has passed Zwartjes and Tuomas in the WRL though, being 26th there now!
#53 (53) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 3 PRs which include FS and YV 3lap and DK flap. All of them saw nice cuts, especially the YV 3lap, which is a new GOD time for him! Marcos passed the AF graveyard... almost. With a 1.8 AF cut he is almost out of it, but still needs 0.7 more to get to the kart legend Nicola Torre.
#66 (64) Jake Walter improved 3 records aswell, but on LR flap and KD and DK 3laps. For him, the flap was a new GOD time, his 6th so far! Jake passed 1 player in the progress, and also came incredibly close to the Legend B ranks!
#70 (70) David Moll improved his KD times into the TOP70, the flap went sub 39.7, and is close to the GOD time. David got a 0.4 AF cut, but didn't pass anyone with it. He's not too far away from Jake though, which could probably be a nice rivalry in future!
We saw a nice comeback from Swedens #2 #76 (78) Andreas Rudmarker this half! Andreas, the former MKDD World Champ decided to make a comeback to MK64 with 5 new PRs on KTB dual, KD flap and FS dual. All of them are new TOP100s, the KTB 3lap being a new Legend time and the flap almost reaching the GOD time! Andreas got a 5.6 AF cut and passed 4 players in the progress. He also reached the TOP80, and the TOP75 is only one point away...
#130 (129) Patrick Blank improved 5 PRs on KD flap, FS and YV dual. He got 3 new Legend times and a new TOP100 on the YV 3lap! He passed 5 players with a 5.5 AF points cut.
#153 (154) Kyle Begley scored 11 PRs this half mainly in Mush and Star Cups. Kyle defeated a few of his last remaining TOP200 times and also came really close to a TOP100 time on RRy flap, which reached Legend C with his new PR this half! Kyle cut 10.4 AF points to pass 11 players and only needs 4 points more to reach the TOP150!
#160 (159) Tim van Ham improved 5 PRs on LR dual, KD 3lap and CM dual. All of the saw big improvements well into the TOP200, CM being ranked 105th and is even a new Legend time for Tim! He cut 13 points to pass 16 players in the progress. He also reached the King C status!
#171 (174) Anastasia Steingold set 3 PRs on KD dual and BB 3lap. She got 2 new King and TOP200 times and got a nice 2.7 AF points cut to pass 3 players and reach the TOP175!
#192 (197) Lewis Richards set 5 new records this half including a really nice Legend A time on DK flap, which is ranked 64th! Lewis also hit the Legend on RRy flap which is his 7th Legend time now. He passed 9 players and reached the TOP200 in the progress!
#196 (198) Anna Moon secured her TOP200 spot with 8 new records, mainly dual records. She cut 5.2 AF points and passed 2 players. Not much left until she surpasses the 200 AF points mark!
#197 (200) Josh McCambridge sent us a mass of 25 PRs, all of them pretty big cuts! He passed 28 players with his astounding 37 AF points cut, reached the TOP200 and also reached the King F status! If that's not a successful update for him, than I don't know what could be! :)
#251 (204) Alain Studer, switzerlands #4 made a little comeback with 10 PRs. His flap on TT seems like it was updated as an NTSC flap, which caused a dramatic drop in the ranks from him here! But also many other times went into the TOP100, like his LR times or DK flap. He reached 5 new Legend times and cut 37 points to pass 26 players! So close in front of the TOP200!
#216 (220) Naveen Selvam sent us 8 new records across all cups, which included a new TOP100 for him! The time was YV flap, which also is close to the GOD rank! Apart from that, Naveen cut 7 AF points to pass 5 players. The next few spots aren't too far away and the TOP200 shows a few nice contenders to compete with if he keeps up the pace!
#602 (456) James Farrell-Shaw improved his LR times, both saw really nice cuts and are both Elite times. James passed 3 players with his 5 AF points cut.
#491 (507) Mark Vizza set 11 new records and passed 15 players with his 7.9 AF points cut. He's only 9 AF points away from the TOP500 though, so a few more PRs should get him there!
#591 (617) Daniel Plaumann set 30 new records, almost his complete timesheet except KTB and SL flaps got renewed! Dan passed 74 players with a huge 62 AF points cut! His times are really consistent, RRd being his best times, both in the TOP500!
#813 (775) Mike Ma improved 4 3laps which saw pretty decent cuts. All of them range around 450th and 500th, and gave him a pretty nice cut of 30 points! He passed 30 players and reached the TOP800 easily!


SC Movement

SC and Universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis set a new WR tie on FS flap, which brought him a little 0.05 AF cut.
#5 (5) Beck Abney finally made the jump into the TOP5! with 4 flap PRs he was able to cut 1.3 AF points, 13% of his AF, and surpass Myles and Alex! He got a few big jumps, for example LR from 20th to 5th or YV from 10th to 1st. The next step is probably taking more time, as he's facing a huge gap now to reach Karlo, who is 3.7 points away! Will he go for it aswell?
#6 (6) Alex Griessing sent us a new SC flap aswell on MR. It was a tiny cut, but still pushed him to 9th on the charts there. Unfortunately he lost a spot due to Becks incredible rise through the ranks.
#67 (65) Michael Arends sent us 2 RRd PRs with a successful spiral jump in it! Both times went down into the TOP25 range and made him pass 3 players in the progress!
#73 (71) Patrick Blank got a TT dual PR. The 3lap saw a smaller cut, but the flap was a good improvement, almost reaching the TOP50 here. Patrick passed 1 player with his 0.5 AF points cut!
#93 (91) Anna Moon improved 8 records, within was a new GOD time on FS flap! But not only this, the success of the spiral made a double GOD on RRd possible! That means 3 new GODs with one update, sounds like a good progress! Anna passed 25 players with her 20 points cut and also reached the Elite B ranks!
#111 (119) Lewis Richards reached 2 new GODs on CM flap and RRd flap! CM is a 25th ranked flap, pretty nice for his standards! He passed 17 players with his 10.2 AF points cut in the progress.
#150 (150) Naveen Selvam sent us 2 new times for DK which directly landed in the TOP200. He also sent us a RRd flap which saw a nice cut to Elite B. Naveen passed 19 players with his 9 AF points cut.
#225 (247) Daniel Plaumann sent us 6 records, 2 of them are new times. He cut 8 AF points to pass 31 players.

Well, that's it folks! Seems like February will be an epic kart month~

- January 2nd half - Groundhog Day, hue -
by Chraizy at 11:20 am

Hey guys! It's Chris here. A bit busy atm, but I probably would have no time tomorrow, so I squeezed it into this day to write the news... hope there are no mistakes in it. Well, let's see what happened:

New Players

Spencer Strautmann sent us a full timeset and debuted at #710.
Mike Plaehn (joining Non-SC) sent us a full timeset aswell and starts at #798.
Ben Stoneman joins the ranks with a complete timeset at #822.
And the last joiner is Johan Hanrahan, who also has a complete timeset and sits at #855.

World Records

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis improved an old favorite, he worked hard for this WR in the last weeks, and he finally nailed it! The course was WS, the 3lap - a pretty risky and hard to perform 3lap - has been improved to a really strong 14"70 (NTSC: 12"23)!! Insane WR!

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player was #5 (5) William Lacey who sent us a few new records. 6 to be exact, and they were set on MMF dual, KTB and FS flap, MR and WS 3laps. He got a new TOP10 on the MMF 3lap, which was almost a sub 1'27 time! William passed Jamie for the TOP5 spot and is now back in the elite four... wait. If the last of the elite four is the champ... does that mean, Lacey is the champ?! That must be the reason, yes! (dumb pokemon references)
#9 (7) Daniel Lunczer made an impressive cut on YV dual, apart from that he also improved KD flap and BC flap. His YV times both are now TOP10 times, the flap is even ranked 2nd! He was surprised himself aswell, and damn, he's getting consistent on every course he touches! If he keeps it up he will land in the TOP5 in no time!
One spot behind, #7 (8) Daniel Burbank got passed by Dan and is 8th again. He PRd 5 times nonetheless. He got a new TOP10 on WS 3lap and a 4th ranked time on MR 3lap! Dan cut 0.09 AF points and only needs the same amount to bypass the 9 AF point mark!
#15 (17) Beck Abney scored a mass of 24 PRs this half. It's incredible that he still goes that strong in such a high place, 3/4 of his timeset in the TOP20 is incredible! Beck got 2 new TOP10 times, a 8th ranked MMF flap and a 6th ranked DK 3lap! He said he got splits that are even a second faster, which would easily be a TOP3 time. In AF, he passed 2 players and scored a 4 AF points cut! Keep going!
#29 (28) Finn Berger scored a new LR flap, which is his strongest time now! He cut 0"06 seconds to pass the 37"80 barrier and get a 37"76 time, which is ranked 13th! Finn is very close to pass Tuomas in the AF lists, only a cut of 4 ranks is needed to do it!
#28 (29) Michael Arends got 4 new records this half, on MMF and BC dual. 3 new GODs were reached, which brings him to a total of 30/32 GODs! Michael is also the newest TOP30 member with his 2.8 points cut! Only BC 3lap (actually not anymore, it seems to not have been updated) and FS 3lap are left. FS, proven to be the hardest 3lap GOD will be a tough, but not undoable challenge for him. Keep at it (and don't stop like Sami did back then with MR flap!).
#55 (53) Marcos Vinicius Alves scored 6 new records, resulting into a 3.5 AF points cut. He passed 4 players and is closing in to the TOP50. He scored 3 new GODs and his ARR is almost at Legend A. Only a bit more!
#60 (59) Darius Austin got 3 new records, a dual PR on LR and YV flap. LR saw pretty strong improvements, a 24th ranked 3lap and a 18th ranked flap! The 3lap is a new GOD and the flap his ne highest ranked time! Darius cut 2 AF points to pass 1 player.
#66 (65) Jake Walter improved 6 PRs and got a few nice improvements, mainly on 3laps. He passed 2 players with a 1.6 AF points cut.
#70 (70) David Moll scored 2 new records on CM flap and RRd flap. The CM flap saw a nice improvement of over 30 ranks and is a new TOP70 time. He cut 1.1 AF points and passed Noah for the TOP70 spot!
#80 (81) Stacy Needham improved MR flap and SL 3lap this half, with a really nice cut on MR which is a new TOP100! SL saw a smaller improvement, but it's nonetheless a nice improvement. Stacy improved by 1.2 AF points and needs only 0.9 more to pass Christopher to reenter the TOP80.
#137 (134) Patrick Blank improved 3 PRs on BC flap and BB dual. His BB times saw big cuts, both landed in the Legend range, his 3lap is almost TOP100 while the flap easily landed at 83rd! Patrick passed 4 players with a 5.1 AF points cut.
#164 (165) Kyle Begley improved 13 records and passed 9 players with a nice 10 AF points cut! Kyle reached the King C ranks aswell, and scored a new Legend rank on DK flap!
#171 (175) Tim van Ham improved 9 PRs this half, 4 of them are new Legends. He got a few close to TOP100 times, and passed 20 players with his big 16 points cut! Tim has also passed #172 (176) Anastasia Steingold, who was active aswell with 8 new records. She balanced her timesheet a bit more by getting a few more TOP200s. She got 3 new King times and passed 12 players in the progress.
#200 (200) Anna Moon passed 5 players this half and finally reached the TOP200 with 12 new records! DK flap saw a strong cut and almost reached the Legend ranks! The rest were smaller cuts, but gave her a nice 7.1 AF points cut.
#201 (206) Lewis Richards played a few of his weaker tracks and scored 7 new records. The most notable ones were KTB dual, which both came from ~350th and are now 156th and 126th! The flap is a new Legend time, and all in all he scored a 22 points cut to pass 17 players!
#206 (207) Tom Galindo improved every single flap in his timeset and made a few nice cuts in the progress! He got 2 new Legend times and erased many Pro and Master times. Tom passed 91 players with an enormous 94 AF points cut! In ARR, he jumped from Elite D straight to King F!
#220 (225) Naveen Selvam scored 9 new records mainly on the Flower and Star Cups. Naveen got 2 new Legend flaps on FS and YV. YV was also a strong time ranked 126th! Naveen passed 4 players with a 8 AF points cut.
#226 (228) Josh McCambridge got 22 new records this half, with the most notable cut being FS flap, which is ranked 159th and a Legend time! Josh got a 36 AF points cut and passed 37 players with it, nice!
#303 (303) Johannes Fiebich got 3 new records on KTB flap and FS dual. The cuts weren't too big, but it was enough to improve his AF by 0.5 points.
#602 (459) James Farrell-Shaw sent us 28 records of which 18 were new ones. James passed 416 players and reached the Semi Pro B ranks in the progress!
#501 (522) Mark Vizza got 10 new records this half. He was practising a lot on MR, where he set his first Elite time! He cut 6.5 AF points and also reached the Semi Pro F ranks.
#641 (673) Israel Mendoza improved 22 PRs, of which 12 are new times. He improved his ARR to Advanced C this half and also reached the TOP700 with a nice 94 AF points cut!


SC Movement

SC and universal Time Trial Champ Vincent Tolhuis scored a new WS 3lap WR (see WR section) and improved his AF by 0.05 points.
#7 (7) Beck Abney got 3 PRs on WS, DK and RRd flaps, which resulted in a 0.3 AF points cut. He's coming closer and closer to Myles and Alex, and becoming the next TOP5 member!
#14 (14) Matthias Rustemeyer sent us 2 SC PRs this half on KD flap and CM 3lap. KD is a new GOD time for him, while CM was his first successful 3/3 hill jump PR! He cut 1.8 AF points and passed 2 players to enter the TOP15!
#22 (24) Pat Bertovich improved his LR 3lap and passed 5 players here. He cut 0.15 AF points, but didn't gain any ranks.
#55 (55) Stacy Needham also tried the SC of MR while he was at it and got a decent cut of 0.6 AF points, He passed 2 players in the progress.
#126 (136) Lewis Richards played some WS this half and got a few decent improvements. The flap is a new King time and also a new TOP100. Lewis passed 10 players with a 11.1 AF points cut.
#163 (169) Naveen Selvam sent us 4 missing times and improved 3 of the already displayed times. Naveen sent us 4 missing 3laps for LR, TT, YV and RRd. He cut 15 AF points and passed 25 players.
#200 (210) Mike Plaehn sent us 14 missing times and improved his strong FS 3lap, which is now a TOP50 time! Mike passed 143 players and is close to the TOP200!
#240 (245) Steffen Hagelskjaer got a new really strong CM flap which is ranked 6th! He was able to hit the weathertenko and is now one of the few guys who hit it. Well done!
#384 (372) James Farrel-Shaw scored 4 records, 2 of them are new RRd times. He passed 114 players with a 13 points cut.


That's it for now. We got a lot of activity this time! Keep it up guys!

- January 2015 first half - The first activity of the new year -
by Chraizy at 7:45 am

Hey guys! Chris here with the news of the first half of 2015! The year started with heavy activity, WRs have been hit. 19 active non-sc, 3 active SC players and 3 different WRs in total! Let's check it out:

New Players

Josh McCambridge joined our site with a full timeset at #265.
Mike Ma joined our site with 28 times, only FS and RRd dual missing. His debuting rank is #802. SC: #338.
Not exactly a new player, but Michael Arends joined NTSC with 4 times at SL and RRy dual.
Michel Talisson joined with the first 4 tracks of Mushroom Cup and debuted at #883.
Mike Plaehn joined the SC site only with 2 FS times and debuted at #353.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer set a groundbreaking WR this month! After Daniel Burbank was able to tie the old MR flap WR with a 27"71, which was still a tie overall but a PAL WR, he attacked it and managed to improve the old time from 2008 with a 0"01 cut from Dan's WR! The new time is a 27"70 (NTSC: 23"04)!!

Shortcut

Beck Abney tried his hands on the 2/3 Weathertenko and finished one! But before he was able to also improve the flap PAL WR, barely missing the overall WR, with a new time of 3"93 (NTSC: 3"27)!!

And the first successful WT 2/3 was also hit by him, with a 10 seconds cut, it now stands at 53"18 (NTSC: 44"23)!!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer visited MR flap after Dan showed his impressive skills on it. He spent quite a few days streaming, but yesterday he was able to hit the 0"01 cut that was needed to pass him and Luke. The reason was probably the insane Mushroom cut he performed, but watch it yourself, the vid should be posted soon on the boards, or you check MRs streaming channel.
#3 (3) Vincent Tolhuis appeared out of his 2 week retirement to send us a sign of life with a new MMF 3lap which cut one rank.
#8 (7) Daniel Burbank improved his MR flap and got the WR tie before with Matthias and Luke, but sadly had to pass it to Matthias. He still cut one rank and maintained his rank.
#10 (8) Daniel Lunczer improved his CM and BC times. BC saw a nice 0"4 cut and is a new TOP10, almost even TOP5! Dan passed Karlo for the 8th spot in AF and is coming closer again to the other Dan!
#17 (17) Beck Abney had an amazing week again, mostly improving 3laps. He got 17 new PRs, even though most of them weren't too big, but he managed a 2.4 AF cut out of it, which is pretty big for this level! Beck passed 4 players to reach the TOP20 and is only 9 ranks away from the TOP15! Notable PRs are his FS 3lap ranked 12th and BC 3lap ranke 15th!
#57 (57) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved his MMF 3lap and MR flap. The MR flap saw a nice TOP40 improvement with a PAL sub 28! He cut 0.6 AF points and almost passed Richard Karlsson for the 56th spot.
#61 (60) Darius Austin improved his LR times and got 2 really nice TOP40 times here. His 3lap is now ranked Legend B and definitely a strong time! He passed 2 players and reached the TOP60!
#69 (67) Jake Walter got 6 PRs on LR and DK dual, on MMF and KTB flaps. Jake got 3 new GOD times and passed 2 players with a nice 2.7 AF cut. He is almost holding the Legend B status in his hands, only a little bit is missing to reach it!
#84 (83) Christopher Zartler got 7 new records this half and got a pretty big 9.3 AF points cut! He passed 11 players and also reached a GOD time on RRy flap! Chris is inbetween a few big karters right now, like Andreas, Stacy, Stephen, Kevin and Mark. 10 points are seperating him from the TOP75, can he do it by this month?
#172 (172) Pat Bertovich improved FS flap and RRy 3lap, both were tiny PRs which helped him to cut 0.2 AF points and pass one player in the progress.
#185 (188) Anatsasia Steingold improved 13 PRs this half, with new records on every cup. Her best time was a 124th ranked FS 3lap, which is now her strongest time. She passed 12 players with a 10.5 AF points cut and also reached the King D ARR in the progress!
#192 (195) Tim van Ham improved 3 PRs on MR flap and BB dual. He cut 7.4 AF points and passed 1 player and is away from the AF graveyard. He also reached King D in the progress with 2 new King times on BB and a very nice King A time on MR!
#204 (205) Anna Moon improved 22 PRs this half which is enormous! Many of them are close to the TOP200, and 6 of them are new King times! Anna passed 19 players with a 23 AF points cut and is not too far away from the TOP200. Go for it!
#213 (223) Lewis Richards improved 5 PRs on KTB and RRd dual and RRy 3lap was also improved. Lewis still got a few lower ranked times like KTB flap which still hasn't passed the TOP350 mark, but also some incredibly good ones, like his RRd times which are both Legends and almost TOP100! Lewis passed 13 players with a 17 AF points cut.
#228 (229) Naveen Selvam got 10 new records, almost all of them were dual PRs except for KD and MR, which only saw flap improvements. He got 3 new King times and also got a promotion to Elite A! Naveen passed 14 players with a nice 12.5 AF points cut.
#320 (324) Pascal Schmidt got 10 new records aswell and improved mainly his weaker 3laps. He got a few nice Master and Elite times and reached the Elite ARR this half! In AF, he passed 17 players with a 15.3 AF points cut.
#512 (531) Mark Vizza improved 21 of his times and got a nice 29 AF points cut! He passed 30 players and easily reached the TOP550. He also became an Expert A player in the progress, well done!
#898 (653) Paul Fisher is continuing to improve his BB times, now he reached the TOP100 with both times and got a double Legend C rank! I wonder when this guy will start hitting those kind of times on other courses, he definitely shows TOP100 potential now!


SC Movement

#7 (7) Beck Abney was the highest active SC player, getting 4 PRs on TT and CM 3laps and KD and MR flaps. TT was a new TOP10 and KD a new TOP5. His MR is now in the TOP20 and as already mentioned, CM was a new WR! Beck is only one point shy from Myles and Alex to reach the SC TOP5!
#23 (24) Pat Bertovich improved his WS flap and almost reached a sub 3 lap here! He passed Noah for the 24th spot in AF and is half a point away from Jason and the next rank.
#87 (81) Daniel Burbank was active in SC aswell and sent us 2 LR times in which are directly ranked Legend D and King F! His TT and MR flaps looked sharp aswell, MR being a new GOD time! Dan passed 6 players and the Worst God Ever Cooper sits right in front of him and the TOP80 entry!

That's it for this half. Hope you enjoyed it! Seeya next time :).

- December Second half - END OF 2014 - A great year! Thank you guys! -
by Chraizy at 8:10 am

First of all, a happy new year to all of you! I hope you started well into it and had fun at fireworks/with your family or whatever you did. When you look back, what have you experienced? Are you happy with your achievements? Have you reached your goals? Well, whatever you finished or is left unaccomplished, 2014 was still a great year, with many new rising stars, many nice WRs and even a new overall GOD! It's been a while since we had the last one with Greg, but here we go again and congratulate Beck Abney! Even for me this year was really special, as my MK64 times are over for a while, but all this activity gave me some sort of motivational boost, and I just started again. Might be a bit rusty, but hey! You need to start somewhere eh? :)

Well, let's start with the last activity of 2014. Not too much happened compared to the last month, but it was still ok!

New Players

Tom Galindo joined our site with 32 times at a pretty high rank: #297.
Israel Mendoza joined the site with Mush and Flower cup times, and half of the Star Cup was sent too. He debuted with 20 records at #785.

#8 (7) Daniel Burbank had a massive PR streak for the end of the year and scored 12 new records. Most of them happened in the Flower and Star Cups. He got 5 new TOP10s and even a #3 MR flap which is only 0"02 behind the overall WR! Dan passed 4 players and finished the year in the TOP10!
#10 (9) Daniel Lunczer passed TJL, but got passed by the other Dan, so he remained at the same spot. He cut a good amount of AF tho with his 5 PRs. His FS PRs show some bigger potential, especially the flap which he beat step by step and is now ranked third!
#29 (32) Michael Arends is coming closer to the TOP30 with a 1.7 AF cut, only half a point short of passing me. His 4 PRs were FS flap, SL dual and BC 3lap. He got a really impressive SL 3lap, which is ranked third and his strongest time by far! Apart from that he achieved 2 new Legend A times and is coming closer to the 0.000 ARR.
#59 (57) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 5 PRs on MMF flap, KD and SL dual. His SL is a new dual GOD, which brings him to 6 non-sc GODs. Marcos passed 2 players with a 3.1 AF cut.
#69 (69) Jake Walter improved his RRy flap and scored a GOD time here! He cut 0.8 AF points with it alone and is close to the next spot.
#92 (94) Christopher Zartler has entered the double digit ranks by the end of the year and scored 8 new Legend times. Chris passed 6 players with a 9.8 AF point cut. He got a few nice TOP80 times which show potential!

#195 (196) Tim van Ham also scored 2 PRs but on RRy dual and passed 3 players to secure his TOP200 spot. He also reached a Legend flap on RRy!
#199 (200) Anastasia Steingold achieved her TOP200 goal just in time with 7 new records, mostly on 3laps. She scored 5 new King times and also became the newest King F player!
#222 (224) Anna Moon improved her RRy time and also achieved the Legend time here!

#243 (243) Naveen Selvam got 10 PRs and improved many of his weaker times like a non TOP400 LR 3lap, which is now ranked 258th. But also other times which were outside the TOP300 are now in the lower 200 area. Naveen cut almost 30 AF points to pass 35 players!
#535 (561) Mark Vizza scored 24 new records and got a few nice Semi-Pro times, and even a Master time on RRy flap! Mark passed 39 players with a 27 AF points cut.
#896 (656) Paul Fisher scored a new BB 3lap which is ranked 140th and King B. He didn't pass anyone though, so same rank as before.


SC Movement

#7 (7) Beck Abney got as already mentioned the CM flap WR and also improved his RRy 3lap and DKJP 3laps. Both are new GOD times and now... Beck has reached as sixth person ever the GOD status in SC! But... if you remember, a few weeks ago he also got the Non-SC overall GOD, so he is our 5th overall GOD aswell! Huge congratz Beck!!
#11 (11) Jake Walter scored 2 PRs on WS 3lap and YV flap. The flap is a #2 time and brought him a nice cut of 0.7 AF points!
#13 (13) Daniel Lunczer improved his TT 3lap but didn't cut any ranks and maintains his current position.
#15 (16) Matthias Rustemeyer also wanted a PR this month so he decided to grind down some easy SC PRs. His choice went to FS 3lap, which he improved by 0.2 seconds and brought him a new Legend time!
#73 (72) Patrick Blank improved his DK flap which is now 84th and a King C time.
#100 (87) Daniel Burbank sent us 5 new records, one of them is completely new on YV flap, which is an instant GOD for him ;)! But he also achieved his first 3/3 spiral on RRd, which is a new TOP10. His TT times look sharp aswell and all in all he cut 10 AF points to pass 13 players and join the doubledigit ranks!

Well that's it for 2014! I hope to see many of you in 2015 again! Maybe for a rivalry... there's a lot activity around me hehe :)

- December first half - super tired, super much work, but also super close to Christmas! -
by Chraizy at 12:06 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris. I just spent my 2 hours today with the news, believe me, this is way longer as it would normally take, I lack sleep and if you find any mistakes in this news, tell me, might have overseen something. But now, let's move to the news:


New Players

Brennen Giesler is the only new player this half. WIth a FS SC 3lap he joined the SC ranks at #491.

World Records

No new World Records...

Non-SC Movement


The highest active player was #11 (9) Daniel Lunczer, who is on a nonstoppable strak of PRing. Since his comeback he seems to have caught fresh motivation and scored a few really nice TOP10 times on CM, DK and RRd. Especially his RRd times saw huge cuts, the 3lap fell by over 1.3 seconds! Dan cut 0.5 AF points and passed Marcelo for a single digit rank, just like 1 year ago!
The other Dan, #9 (11) Daniel Burbank scored 6 PRs compared to Lunczers 5 PRs, and improved some of his weaker times on WS and SL. Dan cut 0.6 AF points and is close to Dan, and also only 3 ranks away from the TOP10!
Our newest GOD, #21 (21) Beck Abney finally got the last remaining MR flap GOD, and alsoooo 15 other PRs! Beck is berserking through the ranks with amazing PRs like a #5 time on MMF 3lap or a #12 YV flap! Beck cut 3.6 AF points and passed 2 players aswell! The TOP20 is only 0.6 points away, but with those kind of cuts he will easily get there by next time!
#28 (28) Finn Berger decided to get a double PR on LR this half, so he just did it as if it was nothing!... no seriosly, Finn worked for those times and it took him a bit time, but the effort definitely payed off! He finally scored some PRs again, and got a nice TOP25 time on the flap as addition! The cuts were 0"01 seconds on the 3lap and 0"02 on the flap. Finn said he could bring the flap down a bit more with a few more tries, can he do it?
#31 (35) Michael Arends scored 3 PRs, two of them are new GODs on WS! He also improved his BC flap, one of the 6 times he hasn't GODed yet. Other times are MMF dual, FS dual and BC 3lap. Everything except FS 3lap should be easily doable for him, but FS will be a hard challenge, it's not the hardest GOD standard for nothing! In the other news, Michael also passed Myles for the 35th spot!
#60 (59) Marcos Vinicius Alves scored a new YV 3lap which is a new TOP100 and new Legend time. He is 1 point away from the next spot.
#70 (69) Jake Walter improved his FS 3lap and cut 0.09 AF points.
Close behind we have #71 (70) David Moll who PRed 5 times this half on LR and YV dual and DK 3lap. LR saw a new Legend and also a new GOD time on the flap. David passed Noah for the TOP70 spot and is not even one point away from Jake!
#100 (100) Christopher Zartler set 13 new records over the last half month and achieved many many new Legend times. His overall ARR also rose and Chris became the newest Legend F player, now the 110th! He passed 11 player, and also reached the TOP100 with style. Well done!
#104 (101) Lachlan Young got passed by Chris, but that didn't stop him to pass another player with 2 new records on MMF and KD 3laps. Both went into the TOP100 and are new Legend times.
#144 (145) Patrick Blank set 7 new records. The cuts weren't too big, except for his MR flap, which went directly from 170th to 116th and is a new Legend time, same as his RRy flap, which cut a good amount of ranks and is another Legend time in his timeset. Patrick passed 10 players and reached the TOP150 this month!
#205 (208) Anastasia Steingold got 12 new records, including her first Legend time on FS 3lap! She is only an Elite A player so far, but this Legend is definitely not easy to get, so well done! Stacy improved her AF by 29 points and passed 28 players, and is not too far away from the TOP200, which was her primar goal for the begining.
#222 (224) Anna Moon made a massive cut this week with 26 new records! Anna achieved many new King times, and destroyed her last remaining Master times. So far, RRy seems to be the first course where she will get a Legend time. Anna passed 53 players with a huge 49.5 AF cut! Sick movement!
#245 (247) Brandon Knodel improved 11 PRs with PRs mainly in the Star and Special Cups. Brandon passed 15 players with a 10 AF points cut and is close to a rank promotion.
Not too far behind we have #246 (252) Lewis Richards who is making good progress aswell on some courses. His FS times look really good and he also achieved a Legend time on the flap which is almost TOP100! It's his second Legend time, but so far he hasn't reached a TOP100. It'll come sooner than expected tho ;)! However, Lewis passed 28 players this half, barely missing the TOP250 entry with his 27 AF points cut.
#276 (278) Naveen Selvam got 8 PRs on KD, FS, CM and MR dual. Each of them saw good cuts and made a 15 AF point cut possible, which helped him to pass 9 players.
#569 (600) Mark Vizza got 26 PRs and passed 44 players with it. He got a few nice times, for example his already strong RRy flap time which went almost to sub 1 minute PAL (sub 50 NTSC tho!) and is a Pro A time. Mark also reached the Expert F rank, making him the newest Expert!
#589 (611) Daniel Sampson is only a few spots behind, with 7 new records he was able to pass 14 players with a 15 AF points cut. He is missing 11 more spots to join the TOP600 like Mark did this half, but with some more PRs this should be no problem at all!
#650 (689) Daniel Plaumann got 21 new records and added 6 new times to his timeset. He passed
77 player with a 59 AF points cut and reached the Advanced ranks this half! Nice work!

SC Movement

#7 (8) Beck Abney set 5 new records mainly on flower cup tracks. He continued his epic non-sc GOD hunt in SC, where he got 5 new GODs! Only RRy and DK 3laps are left, and he would be the 6th overall GOD! Beck passed 2 players and secured himself a single digit rank for a long time, as his AF cut was 3.5 points, and puts him 0.2 points behind Steven!
#11 (11) Jake Walter got 2 new records on MR and RRd flaps, which didn't cut that many ranks. Both PRs were already GOD times so no change in ARR.
#70 (68) Michael Arends improved his TT flap into the Legend C area and passed one player.
#73 (72) Patrick Blank also scored one PR, but on LR 3lap which was a minimal cut, but still gave him a 0.05 AF cut.
#125 (100) Daniel Burbank added 4 new times to his SC timeset, namely TT dual and DK dual. His TT 3lap is already a GOD time, ranked 15th! Those times helped him to pass 34 players and land directly in the TOP100!
#137 (146) Lewis Richards played a bit MR this half and scored 2 PRs here. His 3lap went into the 1'25 range and his flap is now ranked as Elite D. He passed 7 players and is a new member of the TOP150!
#197 (212) Daniel Sampson got a new RRd flap and passed 2 players.
#258 (279) Daniel Plaumann improved 4 PRs, but maintains his rank. He cut 0.2 AF points though.
#287 (331) Mark Vizza played RRy and scored a dual PR here. He passed 4 players with a 0.3 AF points cut.

Well that's it! This is the last update for the year, I hope you had a nice karting year, your goals are reached and that you will have lots of fun at future karting! May you come healthy into the new year 2015!

- October and November POWs -
by Zoran at 5:35 am

4th quarter is the last chance to go for your goals, but it is harder to win POWs since others are trying as well. Let's see who were best of the best in October:

Week 1
Amazing week for Justus Gilstrap brings him his 1st POW award. He cut more then 14% AF and joined Elite ranks. Also, Justus already got a Legend time on KD lap.

Week 2
Another great week for Justus Gilstrap. With 19 new PRs he was able to enter top 300.

Week 3
Elite battle is heating up. With 19 new PRs, Thomas Bundschuh passed 76 people and also joined Elite ranks.

Week 4
Marcos Vinicius Alves reminded us of the Brazilian glory days. He got 3 new SC PRs and one of them was a WR. The course on which Marcos got his 1st WR is FS SC lap.

POM
No doubt about the winner this month. Justus Gilstrap improved every PR and passed 87 people to join Elite ranks. KD lap he drove showed his potential. It is a Legend time ranked #142.

We end this update with November:

Week 1
Are you serious!!! Thomas Bundschuh jumped up the ranks like crazy. He cut 1/3 of his AF and passed 127 people. I guess he forgot to submit some PRs the week before, but even half of this is more then enough to bring him this POW award. Too bad because he might have won 2 POWs.

Week 2
SC WR + 4 more SC PRs. 18 non-sc PRs with 12.5 AF cut. Sounds like Beck Abney is back in town to pick up this POW award.

Week 3
Few PRs, huge cuts. This is a signature of Michael Arends who cut 21% of his AF with only 6 new PRs.

Week 4
Daniel Burbank responded to the improvements of his POY rival. With 8 new PRs, Daniel cut 8% AF and joined the top 10.

POM
A lot of people were active this month and many had amazing improvements so this wasn't an easy choice. In the end Beck Abney wins another POM. He improved 30 non-sc and 7 SC PRs, got a CM SC 3lap WR, made a 28.5% non-sc AF cut and passed 14 people. Impressive!!!

Only December and POY are left. POW points are also updated.

- November second half - the time has come... -
by Chraizy at 9:47 am

Hey guys, Chris here! With December, the real work starts (at least for me) and free time is something I can only dream of currently. I hope that I can do a news update in mid december, but I will try my best. For now, let's begin with the news:

New Players

James Farrell-Shaw joined our site with 12 times, all of them ranging around the TOP700. His debuting rank is #871. SC: #483.
Christopher Carp sent us all 32 times and is ranked around 800th on the tracks. His times give him a start position of #877.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer improved 2 WRs this half. The first WR came on SL. This was his oldest WR from February 2013 which he improved by quite a bit, 0"16 to be exact! The new time is a 1'55"70 (NTSC: 1'36"22)

The second WR was on WS, where he improved his time twice within 2 days of playing (the first improvement came after only 20 Minutes!) He first got a 4'21"68, followed by a 4'21"54 (NTSC: 3'37"51)!

Non-SC Movement

#12 (10) Daniel Lunczer is back with a few new times! He has forced his way through LR and DK and gained 2 new TOP10s, one of the a #4 time on LR flap! His 3lap looks sharp aswell and is a sub 1'58"5 in PAL. DK went almost to a sub 2'15, only missing it by 0"02. He barely kept himself save from the other Dan, #10 (11) Daniel Burbank who made a massive cut with 14 new records! Times like DK and KTB saw nice improvements, but also the other tracks had nice cuts. His best PR in this submission was a #6 time on MR flap. He cut 1.3 AF points, and is only half an AF point away from the other Dan!
#22 (23) Beck Abney gained 8 new records, 4 of them are new GODs, and those are not the easiest ones. He got FS 3lap, CM flap and WS dual GODs, of which FS is definitely the hardest GOD standard! Beck is coming closer and closer to the overall GOD status, as he is only missing the MR flap standard. It's incredible, if Beck would get the MR flap GOD, he would only be a bit more than 0.2 worse than Cooper, and would've been the worst GOD ever. But now he cut too much AF... but that's good of course! He passed 4 players with a 3 AF points cut, 4.4 AF points away from the TOP20.
#34 (36) Michael Arends improved 6 PRs, both TT times were new GODs. He finally improved his last Non TOP100 times, and also his Non Legend/GOD times. All of his times are now TOP100/Legend! Michael made massive cuts on WS and TT, and also improved his MMF flap into the Legend A range. His KD flap saw a further improvement and is now ranked 21st. Michael passed 6 players with a massive 12 points cut! That's a cut of 25% from his old AF!
#61 (59) Marcus Vinicius Alves got 5 new records, two of them were Legend A times and reeally close to GOD. Marcus made good progress this half with a 1.5 AF points cut, passing 2 players and entering the TOP60!
#63 (62) Darius Austin raced 2 RRy times, both close to the TOP40. His 3lap is a new GOD time, definitely not one of the easier GODs as it takes a bit patience, but he made it! Darius passed 1 player with a 1 AF point cut. His GOD counter stands at 12 of 32 GODs.
#71 (71) David Moll got 5 new records, 3 of them are new TOP100 times. He eliminated 2 more King times and has LR 3lap as only King left before he reaches 32/32 Legends. He passed 6 players with a great 3.2 AF points cut, also entering the TOP75!
#111 (111) Christopher Zartler scored 8 PRs, 4 of them are new Legend times. Chris is reeeeally close to the Legend F ARR, only a very tiny amount of ARR points is missing until he reaches it. In AF, he passed 8 players with a 9 AF points cut, one of them was #112 (112) Dan Edeen, who got a double PR on WS to gain a double King A time. He passed MK Legend Mickael Smolen, but got passed by Chris, so he sadly gained no spot.
#198 (199) Tim van Ham sent us 2 missing SL times, those were the last missing times, and he now has a complete timesheet! He passed 31 players with those PRs and his ARR climbed up to King F, making him the newest King player!
#231 (231) Anastasia Steingold improved 11 PRs, 2 of them are new TOP200. She scored 3 new King times and eliminated 2 remaining Master times. Only KD and YV 3laps are left for a 32/32 Elite timeset! Stacy passed 28 players with a 24 AF points cut. She is really close to become Switzerlands #3 player and only needs 4 more AF points to pass Alain. The #2 however is a bit harder to reach at #130, but definitely not unreachable. Will she be able to pass him?
#258 (262) Brandon Knodel got 11 PRs aswell and got a few new TOP300s, and also eliminated a few Master times, and even got some more King times! He passed 14 players and made a nice 14 AF points cut. He also became an Elite B player!
#271 (277) Anna Moon made a nice cut of 25 AF points and passed 22 players this half! She scored 19 new records and made great progress on some courses like BB, where she destroyed her 3lap by almost 2 seconds!
#278 (280) Lewis Richards made a single PR on RRy flap which is a new King time, but he lost a rank due to Anna.
#361 (362) Tyler Chambers scored 4 records on LR and RRd dual. His RRd times are new Elite times, and his LR looks really good aswell with improvements into the TOP400 range. He passed 6 players with a nice 5.7 AF points cut.
#607 (625) Daniel Sampson improved 9 PRs and passed 49 players with a 35.7 AF points cut. He got a few nice TOP500s, but his other cuts were not bad aswell. His best PR was an Elite D flap on MR, ranked 360th!
#601 (644) Mark Vizza improved 24 PRs, 3/4 of his timeset. He played RRy again and improved his time even more, the flap is now a Pro time. Mark passed 37 players with a 33 AF points cut.
#789 (766) Daniel Plaumann (I just noticed we have many Daniels active in MK64 :D) scored 17 new records, with many new TOP700 times. His CM 3lap is a TOP400 time, ranked Pro D. He passed 36 players with a 39 AF points cut and joined the TOP800!


SC Movement

#9 (10) Beck Abney sent us a new time for DKJP and improved it to a sub 22"5, and scored a new Legend C 3lap.
#11 (11) Jake Walter also improved DK, but didn't gain any ranks with his improvement.
#13 (13) Daniel Lunczer played LR on the SC side aswell and made a nice cut from #14 to #8 with a nice sub 1'35 time.
#23 (25) Pat Bertovich scored 4 PRs, one of them was another successful Weathertenko attempt, which gave him a nice #3 time on the 3lap! He cut 2.1 AF points and is dangerously close to Noah for the 24th rank.
#151 (134) Daniel Burbank got a new MR flap time, which subbed the 19 seconds barrier and is a TOP30. It's also a Legend A time and leads him 2 ranks higher in the AF charts.
#198 (214) Daniel Sampson got a double CM SC PR, the 3lap is completely new, the flap is an improvement of around 2 seconds. Dan passed 1 person, but remained at the same AF.
#254 (243) Steffen Hagelskjaer got a CM flap aswell and improved it by around a second to a TOP10 time!
#261 (279) Daniel Plaumann got 10 records, 6 of them are completely new. He passed 89 people with a big 18 AF points cut. Most notable was his FS flap, which is ranked 136th and Elite B!
#290 (335) Mark Vizza got 8 PRs, 4 of them are new entries. His average lies around 240th, and he passed 20 people with a nice 6 AF points cut.

That's it for now! I hope you all have a nice pre-christmas time! Happy karting all!
