PAL Activity:

#28 Joe Bernier, the Time Trial Champion of USA is not looking to make Harvey's climb easy as he cuts some good average finish off this week. Pushing Bowser Castle 3 lap to the 18 second barrier was tough but he also set an NBT PR for DP1 and some good longboosting results for Mario Circuit 2, gaining quite a few ranks, a movement well into the Top 30, and passing Sweden's Time Trial Champion, Kalle Videkull.

#35 Nicholas Harvey however made a solid climb and gained some more ranks to reach the mid thirties there on PAL. His Non-NBT cuts on Special cup were looking good for VL2 and Rainbow Road plus an NBT GV3 lap. GV2 and CI2 are also getting sharper, but best of all was his NBT sub 1'30" for Bowser Castle 1. This helped him to pass Swiss Time Trial Champion, Raphael Braun.

#258 Craig Sargent Surrey's fastest karter from the UK has been hard at work on one of his favourite tracks Mario Circuit 1, succeeding in a superb 1'02" flat PR along with a great lap Non-NBT. He is almost reaching the Top 50 in the UK overall on PAL.

#319 David Holliss gains another rank on the Time Trials this week with some good PR cuts for his Mushroom cup times plus a pair of sharper times for Choco Island 1. He also cut some time down on the tougher Donut Plains 3 track. David closes in on Daniel Gooch on the PAL ladder.


NTSC Activity:

NTSC Time Trial World Champion, Guillaume Leviach made a quick comeback to Time Trials this week with a small PR on Choco Island lap NTSC.

#45 Andrew Koltz set a pair of Non-NBT PRs for Donut Plains 1, with a sub 1'15" time on the course. He maintains his current rank.

PAL Activity:

#8 Manuel Babjar, the Time Trial Champion of Germany on PAL set four new PRs, a pair of strong NBT cuts on Mario Circuit 3, followed by a pair of new times on Vanilla Lake 1, with potential for a sub 50 second course time.

#31 Joe Bernier, the USA Time Trial Champion hits up some more PAL version this week and lands a 4/5 platform jump PR for Ghost Valley 1 along with a nice lap. He is closing the gap fast to the Top 30.

#37 Nicholas Harvey gained three more ranks on PAL with pursued NBT records. These included new times across all of the cups with a further Non-NBT time for Vanilla Lake 2. He has reached 1'00" level for Mario Circuit 1 NBT and KB1 lap is getting near to the sub 10 barrier.

#258 Craig Sargent of the UK returned to SMK after some adventures on the newly released Mario Kart 8; he set eight new PRs, for Ghost Valley 1, Choco Island 2, Ghost Valley 3 and Rainbow Road, gaining around five ranks on PAL.

#319 David Holliss continued some small cuts on Mario Circuit 1 with D.K.Jr where he is making progress. The other tracks have a lot of potential as he shaves away on them with Koopa, the majority being Flower and Star Cup times, gaining him several ranks on the PAL ladder.


NTSC Activity:

#45 Andrew Koltz of USA made a nice comeback to Time Trials with ten Non-NBT hits. These included Mario Circuit 2 and 3, also with a solid run on Donut Plains 1. Ghost Valley 2 and Koopa Beach 1 course times also saw some improvement and he made some marginal cuts on Ghost Valley 3 both. Andrew gained several ranks with his PRs, scraping past Charignon.

#70 Scott Page of Canada improved his PRs for Mario Circuit 4 with NBT and maintains his current rank.

#82 Anna Moon continued the NTSC work this week and did some platform jumping once again on Ghost Valley 1 (3/5). Also some good NBT cuts on Mario Circuit 4 with sub 1'40" potential on the course time. Anna has gained two ranks on NTSC.

PAL Activity:

#31 Joe Bernier, the Time Trial Champion of USA looks to be making a small comeback, to answer the recent approach of Harvey. He made some cuts on Ghost Valley 2 and Mario Circuit 2 laps, passing Alencar Faria. He reaches the 2nd place in the Continent on PAL again.

#39 Nicholas Harvey lands within the Top 40 this week gaining a rank ahead of Olivier Antoine. He has done some good results on the Bowser Castles in particular with solid cuts on all three tracks plus some laps on various tracks. Koopa Beach 1 is now at 55 second level. Nick is starting to reach his sharpness level on PAL that he has on NTSC within the month's play; and there are some good challenges ahead.

#102 Anna Moon gained seven ranks this week with new PRs on PAL for nine boards. Most notable cuts were a sub 1'50" for Bowser Castle 2, improved NBT level on Choco Island 2 and a sub 11 second lap cut for VL1. Anna is fast approaching the Top 100 on PAL.

#327 David Holliss is improving his records well since the last week; he is picking up using D.K.Jr on Mario Circuit 1, Ghost Valley 1 and Rainbow Road successfully so far with lots of potential. Several other times with Koopa have also cut more average finish and he has gained 10 ranks on the PAL Rankings.


NTSC Activity:

#84 Anna Moon also played NTSC this week and made a good cut for Choco Island 1 lap, Vanilla Lake 1 lap. Bowser Castle 2 is also looking solid as per her PAL times. Anna maintains her current rank there for now.

NTSC Activity:

#70 Scott Page of Canada sets a couple of NBT times for Koopa Beach 2 NTSC and maintains his current rank at this time.

#84 Anna Moon returned to NTSC this week and set some nice records with several NBT times. This included good hits on the 2nd and 3rd Donut Plains tracks plus a few more courses such as Choco Island 2 and Koopa Beach 2, gaining quite a few ranks in the process.

#142 Mike Aitken of the USA made a return to SMK Time Trials after a long period and submitted a list of new PRs gathered over some time. A lot of solid cuts were done across each cup and this helped him gain around 25 ranks. Mike has potential for the Top 100, so we look forward to see more Time Trial PRs soon.
