#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest Dutch karter has been a Special cup man with further improvements to Vanilla Lake 2 with some island jumping, and the 50 second barrier coming closer. He also improved well on Rainbow Road.

#7 Julien Holmiere improved Mario Circuit 2 long boost and some sharp NBT cuts for Mario Circuit 3. The Choco Island tracks also stepped up to the next level as he goes mid 1'05"s and sub 12"8 on CI2 and close to the sub 56 on CI1 with a solid lap. Ghost Valley 3 lap was also improved well with NBT.

#59 Martin van Haasteren, the 6th fastest karter in Netherlands improved 11 PRs including some nice NBT work on DP1, CI1 and CI2 and a barrier break on DP2. He has now climbed beyond the top 60 Worldwide on PAL after passing Spanish Champion, Oleguer Limona.

#74 Jeremie Clement of France returned to SMK Time Trials this week with a couple of PRs; this included NBT on DP1 course and an improvement to his GV1 course PR. Jey maintains his current rank.

#35 Andy Lundeen has been unstoppable in the last two weeks. He has almost re-written his full timeset with Non-NBT and NBT cuts; and the potential for more is huge. He is now ranked 9th in USA and is approaching a cluster of rivals who he will challenge for more National ranks as the next PRs follow.

#136 Fabrice Baro of Canada made some great progress this week with some of the lengthy tracks, Bowser Castle 2 and 3, and Mario Circuit 4 where he made cut average finish cuts. Donut Plains 1 is also looking good and there is 1'17" potential; Mario Circuit 1 ventures further into the 1'00" region also as he gains around eight ranks on NTSC overall.

PAL Activity:

#7 Julien Holmiere hit the Bowser Castle 1 and 2 this week after some strong results on the 3rd track the previous week. His results were great with a 1'28" time on BC1 and a very nice 1'41" on Bowser Castle 2. After some lap records there he also improved his Vanilla Lake 1 lap to pass the PAL Champion of Germany, Manual Babjar, and also Matthias Boucher to be ranked 4th fastest PAL Time Trial player in France.

#64 Martin van Haasteren of the Netherlands hit some NBTs this week; with Choco Island 1 hovering near the 1 minute barrier now and some good cuts on Mario Circuit 4 where he went sub 1'40" and Donut Plains 3 with a sub 1'22" time. Martin gains four more ranks this week, landing close behind Scotland's Champion, Euan Johnston.



NTSC Activity:

#144 Fabrice Baro of Canada improved his times a bit further on Koopa Beach 1, and alongside cut some more down for Ghost Valley 3 lap. On other news he is working on Rainbow Road lap some more, so we will expect a cut there soon. Fabrice has climbed a rank this week on NTSC.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in the Netherlands set some strong cuts on Donut Plains 3 NBT and a Vanilla Lake 2 lap, cutting some more average finish off, bringing him another step closer to the Top 5 on PAL.

#9 Julien Holmiere worked on Bowser Castle 3 NBT with a strong lap on PAL and some close calls towards the mighty 1'30"00 barrier on the course time. He is climbing closer to Babjar's rank.

#68 Martin van Haasteren of the Netherlands is back again with a lot more new records, combining Non-NBT and some NBT. His Mario Circuit 3 is looking solid so far, and Bowser Castle 3 course has a lot of potential. His NBT times on Mario Circuit 1, Donut Plains 1 and Choco Island 2 are also picking up the pace. Martin is now the 6th fastest Dutch karter on PAL.



NTSC Activity:

#14 Tyler Worley, the USA Time Trial Champion sets a new PR on Vanilla Lake 1 lap. Matthias Mann is just ahead on the NTSC World Rankings.

#29 David Moll improved Mario Circuit 4 on NTSC with some good NBT work on the lap and potential on the course time. He has passed Bryan Bosshardt of Minnesota this week.

#53 Andy Lundeen is on fire once again, and flying towards the Top 50 fast. 5/5 platform jumps on Ghost Valley 1, also some NBT on Mario Circuit 1, long boosting on Mario Circuit 2 and other high level techniques have been seen! He also revisited a lot of the Flower Cup and Special cup times, with impressive times on Rainbow Road to mention. Andy is now ranked 13th in USA and we are likely to see him reach the National Top 10 very soon!

#145 Fabrice Baro of Canada moved to Ghost Valley 1 this week attempting some platform jumping there too and a 1'05" PR for the course time.

PAL Activity:

#9 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion of France, has been unstoppable this week as he unleashes his potential with strong NBT PRs on several tracks. The highlight though is definitely his 5/5 Ghost Valley 1 where he has reached 1'01" level and his average finish gap closing the mark towards Babjar and the rivals above.

#53 Russell Horwood of the UK delivered six new PRs on PAL, with most of the work on Ghost Valley 2 and Donut Plains 3 with solid results. He also improved BC1 lap and MC4 course and altogether cut over an average finish point. Still a gap to Smolen but he is working his way there.



NTSC Activity:

#33 Dan Hoernemann, the Minnesota State Champion from USA made a nice return to SMK following his recent CDM registration and hit a couple of nice PRs on Koopa Beach 1, and maintains his current rank.

#145 Fabrice Baro of Canada made a Ghost Valley 2 lap cut and some nice improvements to Rainbow Road with some very nice round numbers. A sub 1'29" will happen very soon there.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in the Netherlands worked on a number of laps this week, but DP1 gets ever closer to the sub 1'11" mark and Ghost Valley 1 was very impressive with a 1'01" time and a great lap. He continues to close the gap to Multiplayer CDM World Champion, Florent Lecoanet.

#9 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion continues his climb on PAL focusing on similar tracks again and making good cuts to gain a few more ranks and shift into the Top 10. The Donut Plains times were the main focus, there is an average finish gap to Babjar next but we are sure he will close that in time.

#28 Leyla Hasso achieved her first ever NBT 5/5 Ghost Valley 1 time this week which is a superb result, after working on that track and a lap cut alongside. She has managed to pass USA's PAL Time Trial Champion, Joe Bernier following her latest times.


NTSC Activity:

#26 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion, and 5th fastest in USA returned to SMK with a PR cut on Ghost Valley 2 lap, to answer to a challenge from a new rival there. He has gained a couple of ranks including passing Christophe Paquin.

#30 David Moll, the UK #2 on NTSC played some Bowser Castle 1 course time with a cut there slipping him just ahead of Boucher for the Top 30.

#66 Andy Lundeen, the Mario Kart Super Circuit Time Trial World Champion on the Non-Shortcut table returns to SMK after acquiring a SNES. He has revamped his entire Time Trial set and... *goes to lie down*.... He climbed an insane amount of ranks this week already. His driving potential is very strong and once he kicks into the NBT, lets just say that the US Rankings will get an interesting challenger, and then the World's elite on NTSC! One to watch and very exciting climb! Andy, the 2nd fastest karter of North Carolina State is now ranked 17th in the USA.

#146 Fabrice Baro from Canada played Donut Plains 1, Choco Island 1 and Rainbow Road lap gaining some ranks and is approaching Costa Rica's 2nd fastest, Elizondo.

PAL Activity:

#6 Aron Langerak, the 2nd fastest karter in the Netherlands continues his Dutch Record hitting with a strong Mario Circuit 1 time there, with more potential. Alongside that he delivered a pair of Donut Plains 2 records where he made some slight cuts, with a sub 1'26" course time.

#11 Julien Holmiere, the Battle Mode World Champion from France, who shocked everybody with his NTSC adventures at the start of the year has made a return to PAL Time Trials. Starting off with some Donut Plains 1 PRs where he is hitting times in the Top 10 region already and a nice Mario Circuit 1 lap. He passes Italian Champion, Angelo Di Vano this week; we will expect some more soon.

#292 Ashraf Khan went all "wrath of Khan" on the Mario Circuits, some of his favourite tracks. Seeking out the sub 1'03" is now at break point on Mario Circuit 1. His Mario Circuit 2 and 3 times are getting much sharper and the 4th track following close by. Ash gains two ranks on PAL in the World, and a UK National rank climb to 63rd after passing Croydon's 5th fastest, Darren Coates.



NTSC Activity:

#31 David Moll, the 2nd fastest in the UK on NTSC, made a very nice return to SMK Time Trials this week; Mario Circuit 1 lap was definitely a highlight as he strikes close to the sub 11 barrier there with some great NBT. 8 other PRs on various tracks have helped him to gain three ranks this week and he is very close to the Top 30 there.
