PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany, was in the midst of an impressive battle this week... his main rival below was attacking hard but with some great Ghost Valley 2 platform jumping times he cut a lot of average finish off to maintain his rank for another week.

#8 Aron Langerak also had an impressive cut, with some longboosting times on Mario Circuit 2 where he went for average finish and a pair of strong Bowser Castle 1 times. What is also exciting here as these two warriors are finally closing the gap to the 6th place position. To be continued...

#325 Martin Flynn of Kent in the UK set a pair of new times on Donut Plains 1 and cut some great average finish off. This helped him gain 3 more ranks including a win on rival, Jonathan Hart.


NTSC Activity:

#16 Tyler Worley of USA improved well on Mario Circuit 1 with a further cut to his course time and a nice lap record. Bowser Castle 2 was hit next where he landed a sub 1'40" course time and also a lap PR for Donut Plains 3, which also has a lot of potential. Tyler has passed Anderson and is now just above 2 average finish points from the USA Time Trial title.

#166 Fabrice Baro of Canada had indeed a good Mario Circuit day with some sharp times for Mario Circuit 2, and good cuts on Mario Circuit 3 and 4 where there is potential. Mario Circuit 1 also had a big points improvement as he reaches the 1'00" level there. Fabrice now reaches the benchmark of Top 25 in Canada.

#336 Clayton Eli Rogers of USA makes a full round improvement on almost all of his times; sharpening up his driving skills with the heavyweight characters. This has helped him to gain a lot of time, and thus a 28 rank climb. He has also landed at 4th in Tennessee. We expect he will reach for the Top 300 soon.

PAL Activity:

#8 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands set two very impressive records on Choco Island 2. He is closing in on the sub 1'05" barrier. Aron is now extremely close to passing Manuel for the 7th place spot again. Will he PR to defend here?

#327 Jonathan Hart returns with some solid Ghost Valley 3 PRs this week; gaining some points. He also has a challenger approaching; and it is Essex vs Kent this week...

#328 Martin Flynn, the 2nd fastest karter in Kent, from the UK starts hitting some new records on Ghost Valley 2 and Bowser Castle 2. He is not far from Jonathan's rank so we look forward to see this rivalry as both competitors continue their journey towards the Top 300.



NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley of USA hit some more sharper times on Bowser Castle 1. His lap is ready to go sub 17 soon and this seems like a good goal. The course time also has 1'25" potential. Not to forget the other tracks though as Tyler can definitely win a lot of average finish there.

#175 Fabrice Baro of Canada gains six more ranks on the NTSC World ladder this week with PRs on VL1 and RR where he nearly subbed the 1'00" and 1'30" barriers respectively. These will be reached very soon and he also made some nice cuts to Donut Plains 3. Fabrice is now 28th in Canada.

#364 David Baycroft slightly improves his Mario Circuit 1 course time.

PAL Activity:

#253 Daniel Sampson of Australia made a return to SMK TIme Trials this week with a PR for Ghost Valley 1 course and a lap cut on Mario Circuit 2. We definitely look forward to see more soon. He is closing the gap to the UK's Craig Sargent on the PAL rankings.



NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley of USA improved his Mario Circuit 1 time in the low 57 second level and also set a slightly sharper Bowser Castle 1 lap, continuing from last week's PRs there.

#102 Samuel Gomez improved his long boost course time for Mario Circuit 2 this week, and maintains his current rank.

#181 Fabrice Baro of Canada is on fire with his records already; he has set 10 new times, working on his previously weaker times on the Choco Island tracks, some of the water / ice and also Donut Plains 1. This has driven him well beyond the Top 200 of NTSC and 29th in Canada.

#321 Ashraf Khan returned to SMK this week and worked on one of his strongest tracks, Mario Circuit 3 with a faster PR than his rivals at this time on the course. After improving other tracks we will see him fly towards the Top 300.

#432 Louie Sifleet also had a couple of hits on Donut Plains 1 and maintains his current rank.


NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley of USA set a couple of NBT PRs on Bowser Castle 1 this week with potential for the USA Record. He has cut a few more points down on average finish; if he hits some records on tracks where he is ranked in the 20s / 30s we will see his overall rank climb soon.

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany stuck to Donut Plains 1 once again, shaving some more hundredths on both course and lap times there, edging out his lead a little further from Langerak. The difference is still close however.

#34 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion worked on the twisty Donut Plains 3 track using NBT this week with a successful course and lap cut; gaining some average finish and maintains her current rank.

#58 Russell Horwood of the UK also worked on one track this week, Mario Circuit 4 was the choice this time and he improved his course and lap there, extending his lead from Spanish Champion, Limona.

#280 Michael Springer of the UK worked on a number of tracks where he could compete with rivals Will and Ash and landed some great times. The majority of Mushroom and Flower Cup had an improvement, and a Rainbow Road lap. He is now ranked at 57th in the UK and 15th fastest in London. With further cuts on Star and Special Cup he will climb towards the Top 250 Worldwide.

#324 Jonathan Hart also had a very good PR week with more improvements across the tracks, notably on Choco Island 1 and the Koopa Beaches. He is closing the gap on Ashraf Khan and with this pace can reach the Top 300 soon. He is 69th on UK ranks so far.

#384 Alex Burton set a few new times on Mushroom Cup including a consistent run on Ghost Valley 1 and Mario Circuit 1. His favourite lap Ghost Valley 3 also cut a cut down with Koopa and some platform jumping. With records on the other tracks he will quickly improve his overall rank.


NTSC Activity:

#5 Sami Cetin, the UK Champion of Super Mario Kart set another World Record barrier breaker following his PAL result on Christmas Day last year. Today he became the first player to go sub 56 seconds on Mario Circuit 1 NTSC with a new World Record there.

#17 Tyler Worley of USA continues to hit some SMK Time Trial and sticking to some of the boards where he can gain some average finish. This could enable him to challenge Bernier for the US title after passing a few players. This week he hit some improvements on Mario Circuit 4 and a course time for Bowser Castle 1.

#28 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion continued the pace from last week with four PRs across Donut Plains 1 and Bowser Castle 1. He has gained a few ranks, passing Minnesota's State Champion and Goldeneye Legend, Bryan Bosshardt, reaching 5th fastest in USA.

#102 Samuel Gomez returns to SMK this week with some NTSC PRs for MC2 with long boosting, and Bowser Castle 1 plus Donut Plains 2. He maintains his current rank.

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany is in fierce competition with his Dutch rival this week. A pair of sharper Donut Plains 1 PRs are holding him at seventh for now.

#8 Aron Langerak of the Netherlands is gaining on Babjar a bit more; his latest times are a lap record on Bowser Castle 2 and a sub 1'02" Ghost Valley 1 time. We look forward to see next week's results and if there is a switch on ranks while both of the contenders continue to hit some great records.

#44 Stacy Needham of the UK improved his PAL Mario Circuit 4 lap and maintains his current rank.

#89 Krystian Wieczorek, the Champion of Poland improved his Bowser Castle 1 and Rainbow Road Non-NBT times this week for PAL.

#338 Jonathan Hart of the UK has driven 19 new PRs this week with notable work on Mario Circuit 1 and Mario Circuit 3. He has solid potential and can certainly head towards the Top 300 soon after improving his ranks on some other tracks.


NTSC Activity:

#17 Tyler Worley, the 2nd fastest Time Trial player in USA, and State Champion of North Carolina returned to SMK this week with a lap PR on Mario Circuit 3 and a pair of new records on Mario Circuit 4. Big potential there so we look forward to hearing more news from Tyler.

#53 Stacy Needham of the UK improved on his Mario Circuit 4 NBT PRs and maintains his current rank.

#81 Anna Moon of the UK improved on her Rainbow Road times Non-NBT with a solid 1'28" course time and lap to go alongside. She has passed Livingston and Miarka of USA.

PAL Activity:

#7 Manuel Babjar, the PAL Time Trial Champion of Germany improved his Donut Plains 1 course PR this week with a sharp 1'11" time, and maintains his current rank.

#8 Aron Langerak also improved Donut Plains 1 this week on both course and lap, also with a cut to his Choco Island 1 course and Ghost Valley 1 lap. He is fast moving up to Babjar's rank so expect a battle for the 7th position on PAL to take place.

#34 Leyla Hasso, the Women's World Champion had an excellent week on the third and fourth Mario Circuit tracks after giving both a solid NBT run. After several seconds cut off she also reached sub 18 and sub 19 seconds on the laps respectively. She reached two UK #2 times after some nice cuts to Vanilla Lake 1 course and lap. Leyla has cut a large amount of average finish score and passes both Nicholas Harvey and Richard Karlsson.

#44 Stacy Needham of the UK drove a strong Mario Circuit 4 NBT lap this week; but his highlight was on Bowser Castle 3 where he pushed out some impressive hits there, including a UK #2 time on the lap record. He has passed Australia's James Tagliabue on the PAL ladder.

#58 Russell Horwood of the UK improved his Mario Circuit 1 lap, gaining a few points.

#89 Krystian Wieczorek, the Champion of Poland, returned to PAL regular driving and has sent a number of new records. Ghost Valley 3 he drove a successful 5/5 platform jump with good consistency and a Rainbow Road 5-lap improvement. The other highlight was some longboosting on Mario Circuit 2 course, along with a couple other PRs. Krystian gained a few ranks to land within the Top 90.



NTSC Activity:

NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach edged out Karel's former World Records on Rainbow Road, showing his potential with two new hits there. He has also been working on Mario Circuit 3 course time, so far landing in ties with Oliver Gonzalez there on both course and lap times. A PR on Mario Circuit 4 was also reached, but a rival below has a faster time by 0.07 seconds.

#6 Christian Wild, the NTSC Time Trial Champion of Germany has been experimenting with the extra boosting strategies on Mario Circuit 4 and is adapting well after landing a new World Record lap there!

#31 Jonathan Toole-Charignon, the Massachusetts State Champion hit some good records this week, including a Non-NBT cut on Vanilla Lake 2 course. He also drove some very nice NBT times, including Mario Circuit 4, and sub barriers on Donut Plains 3 and Rainbow Road laps. He has passed Nicholas Harvey and Dan Hoernemann to reach 6th in USA. With his potential we could see a future challenger for the US Time Trial title.

#83 Anna Moon of the UK made a nice return to NTSC Time Trials this week and delivered a pair of Mario Circuit 1 PRs, her course time is running towards the mid 59s there now.

#174 Krystian Wieczorek also hit a couple of PRs on NTSC this week on Ghost Valley 3 where he had big potential. A 5/5 platform jump time was also achieved here and he gained five ranks.
