It takes the right man to snack...



Activity

#1 Ben Stoneman improves his LM 3lap again taking the WR down to 1'31"173 God!

#6 Abel Marques reports in again with a new time on CI2! He scored a new non-prb flap here with a 15"645 God. He's still sitting pretty comfy chart wise so stay the course!

#13 Marcus Frenje keeps up the fight improving his CI2 3lap to 48"689 God! The only other karters to reach the God here are God overall, foreshadowing? Clearly the Scandinavian Snackian has the chops, we're rooting for ya!

#14 Louis Vivares keeps up the pressure crushing his YC 3lap to an insane 1'25"499 God! He cut half an AF point again ranking up to 7th here overall. The fight for the the top 10 is getting fierce!

#17 Sam Jones was living in prb land this week wrecking up shit on RR. He currently holds the bronze medals here with 1'42"007 / 32"319, both God! It's anyone's guess where he'll strike next, but if he stays in the groove the PR's will follow!

#20 Beta also joined in on the LM fun with his own 3lap of 1'31"791 Myth A. He saved the best for last on BC flap where he dropped his WR to an insane 35"707 God! Nice time!

#47 Diogo Dos Santos Costa keeps storming ahead with a 4 point AF cut to reach Titan A overall! He rambled off another mess of new times which included MMF 1'04"621 Titan A, LM 1'34"929 Titan A / 30"494 God, CCB 1'27"105 Titan A, PC 56"672 Titan C, and SG 21"580 God. His big highlight came on RR sc flap where he landed a 32"407 God. It's his best ranked time at 4th overall, wow! What can I say, let the good times lol!

#61 Paulo Ferreira hops up a spot with a 0.4 AF cut. He made some nice progress on a couple tracks scoring DS 30"261 Titan E and PG 1'30"620 Titan C. It's a pretty comfy area on the charts here, little by little he can mow over the karters of yesteryear. Sock it to me!

People who weren't fired included #626 Trevor Shiloh -2.1570.

New Records

A couple heroes this week!

Ben made a couple improvements on LM 3lap with 1'31"184 and then 1'31"173! Just when you thought BC flap was already tough, Beta knocked it down again with 35"755 and then 35"707!

So this is...the top 50, huh?



Activity

#1 Ben Stoneman kept grinding LM coming up with a couple new WR's! He improved both times here with 1'31"205 and 29"808, both God. He has his eyes on the subs for the time being so good luck!

#13 Marcus Frenje keeps his spot with a 0.3 AF cut. He worked on SG this week earning a nice 1'08"886 / 21"367, both God. He also spent some time on CI2 to land the sub here with a neat CI2 48"959 Myth B. Keep up the nice work!

#14 Louis Vivares is the new non-prb French champion! His 0.5 AF cut finally got him over the hump in this competitive portion of the charts. He went all out on YC flap making a huge cut here ending up with 27"675 God, 6th overall. Congratulations!

#47 Christian Wild ranks up to Titan A overall! His 0.7 AF cut did the trick by scoring a few nice times. He worked on MC1 with 42"366 Myth B / 13"213 God. He also threw a nice BP flap down getting 8"173 God. Get well soon!

#50 Diogo Dos Santos Costa makes his top 50 debut, based! His 1.3 AF cut put him up there and it came off one track alone. He worked his magic on WP hitting 2'00"580 Titan D / 39"694 Titan C. It looks like the rank up to Titan A will have to wait until next week!

#62 Paulo Ferreira makes his way through a graveyard with a big 2.8 AF cut! He had a nice week with DS 1'34"075 Titan D / 30"303 Hero A, RR 2'01"758 Titan E / 39"722 Titan D, and LC2 25"949 Titan A. His big surprise came on prb where he landed the rail shortcut on RR with a 37"240 Hero A. He played it safe, but I'm sure he can skip the loop one day like myself lol.

People not losing their way include #476 Adam Roberts -13.0780.

Ben kept finding new heights!

He continues to push LM to the limit with 1'31"205 and 29"808!

#1 Ben Stoneman decided to go all out on LM flap. He somehow found a new level here dropping his flap WR to an absurd 29"854 God! He's hit some decent splits here so maybe the 3lap is next on the agenda?

#13 Marcus Frenje served up a 1 point AF to jump up a couple spots! He passed the French duo this week with a nice lot of new records. These included F8C 1'14"023 God, BP 42"826 Myth A / 8"155 God, and PG 28"343 Myth B. What will the Norwegian wunderkind do next?

#50 Stacy Needham hangs onto top 50 status with his 0.6 AF cut! He focused on BC 3lap for a 0.6 AF cut with his 1'56"243 Titan A. As long as he stays frosty he won't frop out!

#51 Diogo Dos Santos Costa stays the course sporting a 12 point AF cut ranking up to Titan B overall! He nearly lol'd his way into the top 50 this week with another awesome dump of times. These included MB 1'13"502 Hero B / 23"498 Myth D, BP 42"988 Myth C / 8"189 God, SG 1'11"617 Titan E, AF 34"948 Myth C, CI2 50"515 Titan C / 16"055 Titan A, PG 1'29"951 Titan A / 28"955 Titan B, and TTC 1'35"146 Titan A / 30"555 Myth A. It seems like the sky is the limit for now, wow!

#62 Paulo Ferreira wraps up the fun with a huge leap thanks to his 5 point AF cut! He jumped up quite a bit with those nice improvements which included WS 1'58"415 Titan A / 38"389 Myth C, CM 1'50"826 Titan B / 36"143 Myth E, CCB 1'28"019 Titan C / 28"256 Titan A, YC 1'29"548 Hero A / 28"654 Titan D RR 39"964 Titan E, and LC2 25"958 Titan A. Looks like he's just as hungry for the top 50!

#10 Sam Jones raked in some more top times with his 0.1 AF cut. He scored top 6 times on WP with 1'58"610 / 39"072, both God! He finished things off on AF taking his flap to the top 10 with a 34"539 God.

#13 Timothee Le Borgne hangs onto the French title with his 0.1 AF cut! He almost scored the sub on DP1 with a very nice 56"009 Myth B. He also played some prb here hitting 52"696 Myth D and 17"271 Titan A. That gave him a 0.6 AF cut there to hang onto a spot inside the top 15!

#14 Louis Vivares makes his furious charge with an impressive 0.4 AF cut! He made a big leap on the DP1 flap with a sick 17"823 Myth B. This also pushed him up to Titan A overall prb. Who will take the top?!?

#15 Marcus Frenje served up a massive 0.7 AF cut! He crushed it on YC scoring God times with 1'25"865 / 27"819 God. The race to the top 10 is quite a cluster fuck now, which mt's will reign supreme?

#62 Diogo Dos Santos Costa unloaded another 17 AF cut, holy shit! His massive surge moved him up 22 spots to Titan C overall. The latest haul included BB 1'48"946 Titan B, BC 1'59"015 Hero A / 38"102 Titan D, DS 1'34"705 Titan E / 29"967 Titan B, RR 1'59"626 Myth D / 38"802 Myth A, YF 47"968 Myth E, LC1 1'14"012 Myth D / 24"110 Myth A, CM 1'50"476 Titan A / 36"433 Titan B, and AF 1'47"718 / 35"318 both Titan C. It would seem we haven't seen his true power yet, wow!

The man that discovered the MC shortcut joins our site! Folk has the chops in time trials as well sending in his first record with a nice sub on F8C 1'13"997 Titan C. Welcome aboard!

#10 Sam Jones had a productive week as well with a 0.7 AF cut. His first couple times included CCB 1'24"648 God and LC2 25"734 Myth C. Sam was also busy on WP scoring top 10 times here with 1'58"839 / 39"166, both God!

#13 Timothee Le Borgne chimed in with two new times for a 0.2 AF cut. He focused on BB and ended up with 1'46"541 / 34"949, both God. Still some more AF to cut before reaching the top 10 so keep it up!

#71 Paulo Ferreira reported a 0.6 AF cut! He worked on WS scoring a nice 1'58"708 Titan B / 38"414 Myth C. It's another step closer to the top 70, but he managed to reach Titan C overall!

#84 Diogo Dos Santos Costa crushed more pussy with his 17 AF cut ranking up to Titan D overall! His latest haul included LC2 Flap: 26"017 Titan B, MC 1'33"253 Titan E / 30"206 Hero A, BC 38"433 Hero A, F8C 1'17"084 Hero B / 25"065 Titan C, SR 1'43"217 Titan D / 33"013 Myth C, and BB 1'52"084 Hero E / 35"782 Titan A. Clearly he still has more in the tank so where to next?

#10 Sam Jones made a tiny cut on MMF this week with a 20"437 God. He has about 2 AF points to cut before moving up again while the #8 spot is a crazy 8 AF points away! Maybe he'll shake things up as the year goes on?

#13 Timothee Le Borgne made an improvement on his AF 3lap with 1'45"584 God. This 0.2 AF cut moves him closer to the top 10 and perhaps he'll make France great again!

#15 Louis Vivares surged ahead with a huge 1.3 AF cut becoming the newest Myth A overall! Surprisingly, he only needed some new times on DP1 to get the job done and they were quite splendid. He made a big leap here scoring a top 10 time on the 3lap with 55"920 Myth B & a new flap of 18"058 Titan A. The French title is definitely up for grabs now so keep those mt's coming guys!

#17 Marcus Frenje dropped back a spot but he put up some nice times on CI2. His 3lap sits at a respectable 49"281 Myth C while his flap is 5th overall at 15"667 God! He too can make a few nice times and move his way up the top 15 as well so make Norway great again!

#94 Diogo Dos Santos Costa captured everyone's imagination by catapulting his way into the top 100! He finally made that jump after some crazy weeks to round out his times. With a 42 point AF cut, he debuts at Titan E overall! His cataclysmic haul included SG 1'11"981 Hero A / 21"649 God, DH 1'13"949 Titan D / 22"682 Myth D, BC2 31"289 / 1'36"020 both Hero A, YC 1'29"004 Titan E / 28"220 Myth D, PC 57"449 Hero A / 18"220 Titan A, LC2 1'19"983 Titan B / 26"108 Titan C, RR 38"902 Myth B, BC 39"557 Hero E.

#10 Sam Jones starts the year off on a nice note by joining the top 10 overall! His 0.6 AF cut finally put him over the top scoring a load of nice times on the way. These included LM 1'32"089 / 30"179 both God, RR 1'58"878 / 38"999 both Myth B, MC1 13"142 God, CM 35"354 God, CI2 15"953 Myth E, and SR 1'39"854 / 32"679 both God. Great job!

#13 Timothee Le Borgne made a surprising return with a huge 1.7 AF cut! He decided to keep the race for French supremacy strong and churned out a bunch of God times this week. His new records included LC1 1'12"591 / 23"872 both God, MB 1'10"596 Myth A / 23"016 God, and MMF 1'03'534 Myth A / 20'511 God. Perhaps a future contender for a top 10 spot, don't doubt him!

#16 Marcus Frenje makes a similar leap with a 1.2 AF cut to reach Myth A overall! He only needed a few chill records to get there starting on BC 3lap with a 1'54"627 Myth C. He finished things off on CI2 with some solid times getting 49"540 Myth D / 15"702 God! Great job!

#18 Louis Vivares knocked off 0.3 AF points as he kept grinding away on CI2. He made a nice cut on the 3lap and finally scored the flap God with 49"199 Myth C / 15"711 God!

#49 Christian Wild kept digging deeper with a 2.9 AF cut this week. Once again, some great progress as he make his way higher up with LM 1'34"644 Myth E / 30"585 God, DKP 1'50"380 Titan C / 36"016 Titan B, MC 1'33"485 Titan E / 30"022 Titan C, and MC1 42"550 Myth D. Make sure to rest now and then!

#72 Paulo Ferreira wraps things up with his 1.2 AF cut. He made some nice cuts on a couple courses hitting MB 1'12"450 Titan D / 23"736 Titan C, and TTC 1'37"152 Titan E / 31"010 Titan B. He's almost Titan C overall as he keeps marching forward!

People who are still level 0 include #129 Diogo Dos Santos Costa -62.7040 Hero B, #386 Joseph Armstrong -38.0310 Advanced D, and #528 Adam Roberts -23.8900 Intermediate C.

It was quite unexpected, but for posting some nice times to dig his way closer to the top 10 Timothee Le Borgne wins the POW for the first week of January!

Best of the bunch with nice cuts during this period, so Leone Castar wins the 3rd POQ for 2016!

Massive cuts pushed him into the top 50, so Christian Wild wins the 4th POQ for 2016!

The first poll was heavily divided, but Rupa and Sam were the overall favorites worthy of the title. After a heads up match, Sam easily took the majority vote and won handily! After joining inside the top 50, he nearly propelled himself inside the top 10 in his astonishing 1st year. While Rupa wrapped up unfinished business in dramatic fashion, we the karters recognize and vote for Sam Jones as the POY for 2016!

#5 Rupa made some progress in prb land this time with a 0.3 AF cut. He scored some top 10 times on PC with 51"461 Myth B and 17"033 Myth D. For his last trick, he improved his CM 3lap to 1'46"745 Myth C which sits 8th overall. Nice way to cap off the year!

#11 Sam Jones also brought the heat going out with a 0.3 AF cut as well. He once again hit a load of top 10 and God times to move up a spot which included TTC 29"682 God, BC 1'52"116 God, RR 1'58"954 Myth C, rPC 17"836 God, CM 1'48"393 God, MB 1'10"160 God, and SG 21"409 God. What a fantastic sprint to the finish line, great job!

#17 Louis Vivares follows suit with his own 0.3 AF cut to rank up! He landed top 5 times on CM with a crazy 1'46"439 and 34"818, both God. He finished things off on CI2 flap where he nearly hit the God time with an impressive 15"751 Myth A. Dedication pays off, nice year of kart!

Beta is getting closer to a full time sheet in non-prb land and surprised us with some very nice PC times. It's been awhile since we saw the BLS here but he did the unthinkable and knocked off #4 Thomas Bolton's sub by a hefty margin. With some nice hopping, Beta took the 3lap WR down to an astonishing 54"878 God! If that wasn't enough, he nearly snatched the flap record coming in 2nd with a very speedy 17"544 God. Great job and keep up the nice work!

#49 Christian Wild went out with a bang unloading a 3.5 AF cut. His flurry of new records completed his quest to reach the top 50 and just in time! His final batch of times included YF 15"461 God, LM 1'36"000 Titan D / 31"155 Titan B, WP 2'03"124 Titan D / 40"418 Titan C, WS 38"580 Myth E, RR 2'01"249 / 39"730 both Titan D, PC 56"138 Myth E, LC2 1'21"060 Titan E / 26"077 Titan B, and CI2 50"862 Titan D / 15"910 Myth D. Congratulations on your quick rise, keep it up!

#73 Paulo Ferreira wraps up the year with an impressive 2.2 AF cut. He only needed a few times to get it done and scored a monster SG flap with a 21"439 God. The rest of his efforts were spent on MB earning a 1'12"560 / 23"778, both Titan D. He also dabbled in prb land where he scored a LC1 flap 23"989 Titan E. This pushed him closer to the top 90 over there and reached Hero B overall. Likewise, he bumped up a spot in non-prb to finish the year on a nice note!

People who are still honing their craft included #160 Bryton Daniels -1.7190 Hero E, #182 Diogo Dos Santos Costa -82.1090 Hero E, #319 Alex Garcia -1.2810, #413 Joseph Armstrong -11.2040.
