NTSC Activity:

We now have a new NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach of France who secured this title this week with a Donut Plains 3 World Record and PRs on GV1 lap, MC3 lap and VL1 both. He is also now the double PAL + NTSC Time Trial World Champion. Congratulations!! As he is now the man to beat, is there anyone to challenge him on Time Trial, or the Time Trial one try title he holds for the Super Mario Kat World Championship 2013 also? The adventure continues!

#101 Samuel Gomez continued to shave away at MC2 fast lap again, still after that sub 14 lap and also another Non-slide Koopa Beach 2 Non-NBT PR.

#292 Eric Willy of USA lands in 23 new PRs from the Flower Cup all the way through to Special cup. This re-run has chopped several seconds off each track and helped drive him through to the Top 300 of NTSC!

PAL Activity:

PAL Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach hit another Myth+ standard time this week by chipping away at his Bowser Castle 2 Course World Record.

#7 Manual Babjar is now in direct competition with Langerak, as he lands a small cut to his Vanilla Lake 2 course time with some island jumps.

#13 Pierre Coste of France sent in some older Vanilla Lake 2 PRs to update his ranks there. He maintains his current position on PAL overall.

#18 Florian Chollet improves his Koopa Beach 1 NBT lap on PAL this week with a mid 9 second time.

#30 David Moll of the UK improved his Koopa Beach 1 times last week with some nice cuts that cut some average finish down.

#97 Samuel Gomez set a couple of PRs on Bowser Castle 2 and Donut Plains 3, and maintains his current rank.


NTSC Activity:

#2 Guillaume Leviach is in a rampage this week on NTSC, he started with Ghost Valley 2 and broke the sub 58 barrier there and tied the lap World Record. Great work, but shortly after he ended the week with double World Records on Mario Circuit 2. He is closing in on the NTSC Time Trial title, currently held by Karel van Duijvenboden.

#13 Ha Nyan of Japan made a nice return to SMK Time Trials this week, this time on a different track, Koopa Beach 1 where he improved average finish well. He is now within 1 full average finish point of Soul Kobayashi and the Japanese Time Trial title.

#101 Samuel Gomez did some more NTSC as well, this included MC2 longboosting again, a sub 14 lap will arrive soon. Along with some KB2 and GV3. He is nearing the top 100 again.

#317 Marcus Whitley of Australia who recently joined us on NTSC Time Trials has been working on a lot of tracks a week ago and improved his overall score well. He is heading towards the top 300 soon.

#331 Eric Willy of USA returns to SMK Time Trials this week. He has a lot of potential and may be able to compete with Marcus pretty soon. Eric already delivers twenty new PRs, and we have a feeling there will be more on the way.

PAL Activity:

#7 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest Dutch karter of Super Mario Kart answers to the challenges of Babjar with some PRs of his own. Solid cuts on Vanilla Lake 2 and a sub 50 second NBT PR on Koopa Beach 1. Hitting these tracks have gained him enough average finish to regain the 7th place spot... but the battle continues.

#8 Manuel Babjar may have lost a rank but he showed us some great skills as he hits a very nice lap on Vanilla Lake 2 that subs the 9.5 second mark.

#18 Florian Chollet sets a few Donut Plains 2 NBT PRs and this gets him past William Jonas to become the 9th fastest player in France.

#63 Russell Horwood of the UK drove some NBT PRs on Ghost Valley 1, with a platform jump and also Bowser Castle 1 Course time, and passes Florian Stern of Germany.

#265 Craig Sargent of the UK had some unfinished business on a number of tracks. His Mario Circuit 1 level proved he could go far on the rest; with 20 new PRs he has cut a large amount of average finish, with plenty more potential for Top 200. Craig has passed Mark Anderson to become the Surrey County TT champion for SMK and now ranks 53rd in the UK.

#19 Florian Chollet of France went classic style on Ghost Valley 2 course time this week with a PR well into the 1'02"s, without the use of the platform jump. He also made a small PR on DP2 lap.

#97 Samuel Gomez improved his Donut Plains 3 course time, nearing the sub 1'25" barrier.


NTSC Activity:

#71 Scott Page of Canada gains a rank ahead of Von Flyler with new Non-NBT PRs on VL2 both and DP2 course, followed by an NBT lap cut on MC3.

#269 Sam Smith of USA went by with larger volumes this week and determination to reach the Top 300 on NTSC. He has taken Star Cup and Special Cup, smashing his times there by a good margin and not only has he flown past the Top 300, he has shown big potential. The Top 250 isn't too far away now either!

PAL Activity:

PAL Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach made a return to PAL and hit a few amazing times and World Records. Ghost Valley 1 lap was up first as he broke the ties there by a hundredth and also beat Pierre's Koopa Beach 1 lap World Record. Lastly he put together a very strong Bowser Castle 3 course time, almost at World Record level.

#7 Manual Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany hit another great mark this week. Following some nice PRs on Vanilla Lake 2 where he hit a sharper lap and a new course time utilising the island jump on the opener, he landed a pair of cuts to Ghost Valley 1. This earned him enough average finish to pass Netherland's 2nd fastest, Aron Langerak.

#19 Florian Chollet of France continue to improve his Vanilla Lake 2 lap time with the island jump, bringing his average finish a little closer to Jonas.

#64 Russell Horwood set some new NBT PRs for Donut Plains 1, subbing the 1'15" course time and a better lap, and maintains his current rank.

#97 Samuel Gomez improved his Mario Circuit 2 course time with some long boosting and another tiny cut to his solid Choco Island 2 lap.


NTSC Activity:

#102 Samuel Gomez also karted on NTSC this week with another MC2 lap cut but also course time PRs for Bowser Castle 1 and Koopa Beach 2. He is closing the gap to Hunter Koch.

#314 Sam Smith of USA moved on to the next tracks on his list, Bowser Castle 2 and Mario Circuit 3, with good all round improvements there and several ranks climbed on the NTSC average finish. On to Star Cup next which should deliver his rise towards the Top 300.
